We are about 6 months from the actual voting (however that will be accomplished) for the next president of the United States……will it be Donald the Orange or that upstart Biden?
Let me begin with Biden…..only about 50% of Dems think Biden is the best choice….
Just 55% of Democrats think Joe Biden is their strongest 2020 White House candidate to run against President Trump, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
“The numbers suggest the Democratic candidate has some serious work to do shoring up his base in advance of the general election,” Rasmussen said. “That’s a decent place to be, but not great. It’s possible the pandemic has slowed the process of uniting Democrats behind their presumptive nominee. It also helps explain the lack of enthusiasm for Biden found in many general election polls.”
Biden became the party’s presumptive presidential nominee weeks before the coronavirus sidelined the entire 2020 campaign cycle. Biden after a slow start won big in South Carolina, then on Super Tuesday – first winnowing a large field, then knocking off then-frontrunner Sen. Bernie Sanders.
IST has been saying that since he, Biden, announced his candidacy…..but what do we know?
Yes I am a progressive….well a bit more Left than that but the tag will do….and if for some reason Biden losses to his opponent in November….do NOT blame us progressives….
The corporate conservatives who control the Democratic Party are suffering from cheaters’ remorse.
The DNC and their media allies (NPR, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Vox, etc.) subverted the will of primary voters, undermining initial frontrunner Bernie Sanders in order to install the worst candidate of the 20 centrists in the campaign.
Now the power brokers are worried that the befuddled Biden, whom they touted as the Most Electable Against Donald Trump, will lose to him. Rather than take responsibility for their idiocy and force Biden to pull out of a race for which he is obviously physically and mentally unprepared, the corporatist sellouts are preemptively blaming the progressives who warned them about this exact scenario.
But let us say that Trump loses in November….there are some that feel it is nothing to worry about….
elections analyst Nathaniel Rakich argues that if President Trump loses the election in 2020, he’ll be the GOP’s nominee again in 2024.
How scary is that?
Here is a thought for you to chew on for awhile…..
Can the GOP and its evil minion Trump cancel an election?
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp will be permitted to hand-pick the state’s next Supreme Court Justice after that same high court ruled last week that a special election set for Tuesday could be canceled.
Kemp and his Secretary of State, Brad Raffensberger, moved to cancel voting in the state earlier this year after state Supreme Court Justice Keith Blackwell announced he would step down after his six-year term expires at the end of 2020.
Taking the matter of who should succeed Blackwell into his own hands will allow Kemp, a Republican, to appoint another right-wing judge to serve on the highest court in the state for at least two years. Like the U.S. Supreme Court, the nine-member Georgia Supreme Court—though most of its member recused themselves from ruling on this case—enjoys a Republican majority.
Both the Democratic and Republican former lawmakers who were running for the seat—John Barrow and Beth Beskin—filed lawsuits to have the election reinstated, but the state Supreme Court sided with Kemp last week in a 6-2 vote.
Donald the Orange is already saying the election is rigged…and we have not even got the Dem candidate yet…..
In a series of increasingly frenzied statements, mostly on Twitter, President Donald Trump has denounced efforts to encourage mail-in rather than in-person voting—a response by many state governments to the coronavirus crisis—as a Democratic Party conspiracy to steal the 2020 presidential election.
He tweeted Tuesday, in response to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s decision to send every registered voter in the state a mail-in ballot, “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”
I agree with the thought…”Not having an election is rigging an election”.
