If that was only true but that is far from the truth.

Damn democrats. They are not answering direct questions. Just say that taxes will go up and healthcare costs will go down. Overall they will balance out. No cost to middle class.Bernie sort of explained it.

And they are arguing the same things for the 3rd time.

Biden came across badly with his repeated "I'm the only one that..." things.

Yeah, if we run Biden, he probably will win. Because of Trump, mainly. I don't rank him highly as a person. He has much the character of many Republicans I hate, such as our governor.

Very likely a one term president, Biden.

We can't have healthcare like the rest of the world. Because our doctors are expensive and our drugs cost a lot. And Medicare can't negotiate because the GOP hates Medicare.

Another measure of popularity:
Fundraising.
0E3CBBB1-4F76-4A90-8A5D-75F47BD25F28.jpeg
So Biden's total cash haul -- $15.7 million -- isn't great. (He was outraised by Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg.) But his burn rate -- the amount he spent -- is even more concerning. Biden spent more than $17.6 million, meaning $2 million more went out than came in. Which is bad! But could be mitigated somewhat if Biden had previously stocked away a Scrooge McDuck-like set of gold coins (or just plain dollar bills) that he could draw from to fund his efforts in the third fundraising quarter.

Unfortunately for Biden, however, there is no store of gold doubloons. He spent more than he raised and he has half (or less) of the cash on hand than his main rivals for the nomination. That's bad stacked on bad, with bad slathered on top.

When the democratic process is totally ruled by and obsessed with money, you know that it has a rotting core...

That Jim is so bloody true. That is why the UK is in such a mess. It is all about personal wealth.

It is about how personal and corporate wealth buys the power to influence government in their favour.

It's apparently about only one thing: turnout. They can use Trump for this and the sucker will play along. You need Trump hate and outrage.

The Hill (not my favorite source) reports change. The fluctuation, however, is real:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has opened up a 7-point lead in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.

Twenty-eight percent of Democrats and independent voters who lean Democratic say they intend to support Warren, while 21 percent say they will back former Vice President Joe Biden and 15 percent say they’ll support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is the only other candidate to break double digits, coming in at 10 percent.


While Warren's support slipped 2 percentage points since earlier this month, Biden fell 6 points and Sanders added 4 points from the last poll.
"Former Vice President Joe Biden slips, Senator Elizabeth Warren steadies, Senator Bernie Sanders gets his groove back, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg breaks back into double digits," said Quinnipiac University polling analyst Mary Snow.

Warren’s lead is buoyed by advantages among some of her key demographics: She has a 33-point lead among voters who identify as “very” liberal, a 5-point lead among whites, a 15-point lead among those with a college degree and a 7-point lead among voters between the ages of 18 and 34.

Biden, meanwhile, holds a 19-point lead among voters who identify as moderate or conservative, an 8-point lead among men and those without college degrees and a whopping 38-point lead among black voters.

Biden will be crucial for the...er...religious blacks.
