YouGov Polling: Biden Skeptics Are
Moderate Democrats

At the end of March, President Trump was on a roll: Having been acquitted by the Senate in February, he was taking credit for a coronavirus lockdown that “saved 2 million lives,” in his estimate, and was an odds-on favorite to win the 2020 election (a plus-seven-point margin in the RealClearPolitics betting average). RCP’s polling average placed his job approval rating at 47.4%, with over 50% approved of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis. In the battleground states, he was running close to even with Joe Biden. Three months later, Trump’s approval rate is at 41.5%, and his disapproval rating close to 56%,

Moderate? How could anyone who sanctions the slaughter of an unborn child be called "moderate."

YouGov polling is a joke. I participate on line and could answer differently every time if I feel like messing up their poll that day.

If the numbers fall right, there will be a "moderate conservative" in the race come November. And then what?

I'm completely distracted by trying to wrap my head around the term "Moderate democrat." Is that even possible? Can I be moderate and support a party that spies on my neighbors with no legal basis? Can I be a moderate and part of a party actively engaged in a coup, an open revolt?

There is no down side in today's toxic Left controlled culture to freely advertise that you support Biden or admit it to a pollster. Doing it with Trump could cost you your livelihood. In some professions - permanently. The violence and mayhem of the last two months has made things worse by an immeasurable factor. How can any of these polls, analyses or forecasts have any meaning. It is not as if this is speculation . We have seen it operating till 10.00 pm on Election Day 2016. IMO, none of the conventional wisdom is going to work from here on. Only instincts of the politically gifted like Limbaugh or Trump himself to guide us. In any case don't trust ANY polls, opinions, articles by the fake corporate media.

If the president has to rely on moderate Democrats shying away from Biden in order to win, he's in more serious trouble than he already is. Two great speeches this weekend followed by universal lies among the media. How does Trump respond? As he always does, with an irrelevant tweet about NASCAR that leads network news, buries the speeches, and confirms that the president is his own worst spokesman.

#7, agree. He really needs to manage his tweets better. The one on NASCAR and Bubba Wallace totally drown out any other type of message he may want to give. And, for anyone to believe they are a Moderate Democrat who has anything close to resembling what the Democrat party now stands for, should really wake up. It's not just abortion either, as it would be legal in a majority of the States even if Roe was overturned. They may think "their guy" is moderate, but then that person votes for the entire Progressive agenda.

Dems who aren't interested in going full Communist will be people who Trump may be able to persuade to vote for him. Not all Dems hate the country and want everything destroyed. I think the left has seriously overplayed their Marxist 'loot-burn-kill' card and will be driving away some of their party members.

Mogadishu-born Rep.

Going for the wokester cred, Meghan Markle's husband, Prince Harry, would like you to apologize, or rather, 'reflect' on the colonial sins of his ancestors. Here's how bad it was: Prince Harry today faced criticism after he appeared to take a swipe at the British Empire by saying the history of the Commonwealth 'must be acknowledged', even if it's 'uncomfortable'. The Duke of Sussex, 35, made the comment as he joined wife Meghan Markle, 38, for a video call with young leaders from the Queen's Commonwealth Trust last week that was made public today. As part of the discussion on 'justice and equal rights', Harry said the Commonwealth needs to follow others

Well, it looks like the makeover has begun. Corrupt Joe Biden, who used his office to enrich himself and his family, to say the least, is now the foreign policy maven, particularly on China. That's the spin from the New York Times, which has beclowned itself badly, trying to tell the audience that something smelly is shinola. To voters unsettled by President Trump’s disruptive approach to the world, Mr. Biden is selling not only his policy prescriptions but also his long track record of befriending, cajoling and sometimes confronting foreign leaders — what he might call the power of his informal diplomatic style. “I’ve dealt with every

It's unclear whether he's consulted with his friend Donald Trump, but rapper Kanye West has announced he's ready to unseat the Republican president. "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," West wrote on Twitter Saturday evening. "I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION" It's not apparent how serious he is about running, but it seems unlikely the polarizing entertainer could actually unseat Trump. It's probably more likely he could use a little publicity for his upcoming album, "God's Country," and its first single, "Wash Us in the Blood," which was released earlier this week.

MIAMI — Three American defense contractors held for five years by leftist rebels in Colombia moved closer to collecting on a $318 million judgment against their former captors when a U.S. Supreme Court justice rebuffed an appeal by a sanctioned Venezuelan businessman whose assets they seek to claim. Justice Clarence Thomas refused to hear an emergency appeal by Samark López, letting stand an order by a federal appeals court immediately turning over $53 million from the businessman's previously seized U.S. bank accounts, though the appeals court judgment is being contested. Yet his defenders say there is no evidence — and no conviction

President Trump delivered the speech of his presidency at Mount Rushmore Friday, a magnificent affirmation to Americans on their 244th national birthday that what they have always cherished is still cherished, along with a warning shot to those who hate and despise all the United States stands for. It was non-partisan -- there was no mention of Democrats or Joe Biden. It was inclusive - celebratory of people of all races, and celebratory in particular of the singularity of America being great for such diversity. It was also big-hearted, magnanimous, celebrating all the ranges achievements of the country. Yet it also did the thing Trump does best,

After all that time in the basement, not doing very much, Joe Biden still can't quite decide who his runnng mate is going to be. According to Breitbart News: Former Vice President Joe Biden is pushing back his timeline for announcing a running mate, seeming to signal his campaign has yet to find an acceptable candidate. Biden told reporters on Tuesday after delivering an address on the coronavirus pandemic that his campaign was still evaluating its options.

Over the past month, mobs across the Golden State hae torn down statues of a Junipero Serra, an eighteenth-century Spanish Franciscan friar. On June 20, protesters in downtown Los Angeles toppled a Serra statue near Union Station. The mob labeled the statue a “commemoration of hate, bigotry, and colonization.” A day earlier, activists had brought down another statue of Serra in San Francisco. Several statues dedicated to Serra and two other figures in San Pedro were defaced. The famous mission of San Juan Capistrano preemptively removed their statue of Serra to protect it from possible destruction. The cities of Carmel and Ventura took similar action.

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken
