2020 is quickly approaching and the energy in the MSM is at fever pitch already…..they have 2 new guy candidates that they, MSM, can fixate on…..they have a bundle of women running they can lavish praise upon….and they have “Uncle Joe” Biden that they can always dredge up when the news of the day is slow…..finally they have an old white Jew that they can use as a punching bag by keeping the age old BS of socialism front and center instead of his policies that are truly popular with the voter.
2016 saw the rise of Bernie to everyone’s surprise…so much so that he challenged the Clinton machine and damn near beat her pants off (no insult or pun intended) so much so that the DNC had to resort to trickery to keep him from winning the nomination….but like I say that was 2016 and we are entering into a new election cycle.
In 2016 his appeal to younger voters was something that did not get the attention it deserved and so far looks like 2020 will be no different…
A new national poll of young Democratic voters released Monday shows Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the crowded 2020 field with a double-digit lead over the second most popular candidate, Joe Biden.
According to the survey by the Institute of Politics (IOP) at the Harvard Kennedy School, the U.S. senator from Vermont is preferred by 31 percent of likely Democratic primary voters between the ages of 18 and 29 years old.
While Biden came in second place with 20 percent and Beto O’Rourke of Texas nabbed the third spot with 10 percent, none of the other candidates garnered more than single digits in the poll. After O’Rourke, IOP noted the following support for the remaining candidates:
Sen. Kamala Harris (5%), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (4%), Sen. Cory Booker (3%), Andrew Yang (2%), Mayor Pete Buttigieg (1%), former Sec. Julian Castro (1%), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (1%), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (1%), Gov. Jay Inslee (1%) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (1%). Several other candidates polled at less than one percent at this early stage.
The big news recently with the MSM was that candidate Buttigieg hauled in $7 million in the first quarter and they went on and on about how important this cash will be……and yet Bernie brought in more than double and his totals were not even a mention……
Bernie Sanders is the third Democratic candidate to release first-quarter fundraising figures, and he easily jumps to No. 1. Sanders says he pulled in $18.2 million in the first three months of the year, with 88% coming from donations of $200 or less, reports the New York Times. Earlier, Kamala Harris announced she raised $12 million and Pete Buttigieg $7 million. A big remaining question: How much will Beto O’Rourke get? Like Sanders, he had raised about $6 million on his campaign’s first day. Politico notes that Sanders surpassed his fundraising from the first quarter of his 2016 campaign, when he pulled in $15 million.
Bernie is still as popular as he was in the 2016 cycle…..but will he be as successful as he was last time and will the DNC play the same games it played in 2016?
The MSM will avoid Bernie as long as there are as many candidates that they can use as an excuse….this trend of popularity may not continue but for now the younger voters are…..Feeling The Bern!
