Same here. They're just the opposite of what the country needs right now.

I like her. She doesn't have an 'it' factor though. That 'thing' that masses of Americans want in their president. I saw an interview she did with Bill Maher and she came across personally awkward. It's like a lack of personal confidence or something, I can't put my finger on it.

Future? Yeah.

She may be battling with how to broaden her personal appeal to beyond your average Minnesotan. She has though demonstrated the ability to nail her opponent with a good zinger, something that seems to count with a lot of people these days

Saw an interesting take today. Biden looks ready to run away with the next stretch of primaries and knock Bernie out unless something "comes out" to change the momentum.

So does team Trump drop their Biden-killer bomb now to prolong the primary race or even try to knock Joe out now, or wait until after the conventions when it's Trump vs. Joe. Interesting quandry...

This might be fun.

Former Bloomberg adviser Tim O'Brien: "If Republicans really want to make an issue out of Hunter Biden ... there is going to be a scorched earth response aimed at all of the Trump children that is going to be unlike anything they've experienced thus far."

I've been wondering about that since I heard they were going to subpoena Biden...how can they not see the danger?

Which?

Apparently Joe doesn't think JJ is:

Jackson:

"The Biden campaign has not reached out to me or asked for my support," he added. "The Sanders campaign has, and they responded to the issues I raised."

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/08/poli ... index.html

This probably has to do with long-running issues, these guys have been competitors in prior presidential campaigns...that said I don't see it mattering that much, Jackson's days of being a difference maker are over

Detroit Free Press Poll: Biden Holds Huge 24-Point Edge Over Sanders In Michigan

Former Vice President Joe Biden, riding a wave of momentum from primaries in South Carolina and Super Tuesday states, comes into Tuesday’s Michigan primary with a 24-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new Detroit Free Press poll.

If Biden’s 51%-27% lead in the poll, done by EPIC-MRA for the Free Press and its media partners, holds, it would guarantee him a signature victory in Michigan – a battleground state that helped President Donald Trump win the White House four years ago. It could also starve Sanders' formerly front-running campaign of delegates needed for the nomination and call into question how long his effort can remain viable.

"Something happened on Super Tuesday with (other) candidates getting out and people are all of a sudden questioning Bernie’s positions on issues," said Bernie Porn, pollster for Lansing-based EPIC-MRA, which conducted the survey of 400 likely Democratic primary voters between Wednesday and Friday. "If anything, it may be low in terms of the percentage that Biden may get."

Bernie Porn...there, now you can't unsee it either

Had to google that. Yeah. It's an actual guy.

And I found out that the Daily Beast surveyed 30 porn stars and an "overwhelming majority" support Bernie. Ohhhh Kaayy. --:--

Joe crushing it tonight, especially in Michigan =D>

Love to see this, it's gonna be sooooo nice not having a leader who kisses NRA *ss:

"(Biden) is still confronting voters who question his positions, which include a gun control plan that reinstates an assault weapons ban and includes a voluntary buyback program for assault weapons.

That issue was at the center of a testy exchange with a worker while Biden was rallying Tuesday in Detroit. The man accused him of “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right.” Biden shot back, “You're full of sh--,” but went on to say that while he supports the Second Amendment, “Do you need 100 rounds?”"

I like this quote.

Yeah, it's still waaaay early, but I'm tired of trumpsters crowing about his 49% approval rating (absolutely pitiful during a crisis of this magnitude)...FWIW:

Fox News Poll: Biden Leads Trump, Wins High Marks For Female VP Pledge

Former Vice President Joe Biden bests President Donald Trump by nine points in a 2020 ballot test, in the first Fox News Poll since Biden became the de facto Democratic nominee.

In a head-to-head presidential matchup, Biden is up by 49-40 percent over Trump, a lead that is outside the poll’s (conducted March 21-24, 2020) margin of sampling error (+/-3%).

The race remains a nine-point advantage for Biden over Trump when looking only at those voters extremely interested in the election (52-43 percent) and the former vice president has an eight-point edge in battleground states (48-40 percent).

However, Biden’s advantage grows to 25 points, 57-32 percent, in close counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016).

I don't love Biden. But I also think he's the best choice to beat Traitor. He has older moderate support that can get the swing voters we need to get rid of this abomination.
