  • ABC/WaPo Poll: 15% of Bernie supporters will vote for Trump as Biden faces “massive enthusiasm gap” in general election

    “Indeed, strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters – at just 24% – is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls. More than twice as many of Trump’s supporters are highly enthusiastic about supporting him, 53%.” Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump. From the ABC News poll write-up: Former Vice President Joe Biden has emerged as Democrats’ top choice for the presidential nomination in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, but with only bare majority support within his...

    The public perception problems for Joe Biden are growing. He’s not all there, as is obvious from his disastrous livestreams and TV interviews, and has all but disappeared during the Wuhan coronavirus crisis. A just-released ABC News / Washington Post poll reveals another problem, one that comes as no surprise: Democrats are not enthsiastic about Biden, even as he racks up delegates and appears headed to the nomination. Biden has only bare majority (51%) support among Democrats, and a 24% enthusiasm gap in a match up against Trump.
  • Democratic Task Forces Deliver Biden A Blueprint For A Progressive Presidency

    A joint effort by former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to unify Democrats around Biden's candidacy has produced a 110-page policy wish list to recommend to the party's presumptive presidential nominee. Throughout the Democratic primary, Biden stuck to a more moderate platform, while Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and much of the rest of the crowded field courted progressives and advocated for broader structural changes. But as the United States faces a growing pandemic and unemployment rates at the highest levels in generations, Biden has been talking more and more about a presidency that approaches Franklin...

    Los Angeles Democrat seeks “new path of support and collaboration” with Communist Cuban regime. “Congresswoman Karen Bass, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, is undergoing vetting as a candidate to be Joe Biden’s running mate,” Bo Erickson of CBS News reported on June 24. In March, the five-term Los Angeles Democrat endorsed Biden for president, but even some Democrats were troubled by one of Bass’s previous endorsements. “The passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba,” said Bass in a statement after Fidel Castro passed away on November 25, 2016.  “I hope together,...

    Vermont’s food scraps ban that starts July 1 is the last step in a multi-year process of reducing waste in landfills. The Universal Recycling Law was unanimously passed by the state legislature in 2012 in response to the state’s stagnant recycling rates. According to a 2013 study, an estimated 50% of Vermonters' trash included recyclable or compostable materials, like food scraps and leaf and yard debris. First, you need to find something to store the food scraps in. Morris recommended a large container with a lid, which can be recycled from something already on hand or bought from a hardware...

    Joe Biden might lose his third presidential bid to a septuagenarian socialist turning the Democratic Party into the U.K. Labour Party, and yet, he can't help but aim his fire at the 38-year-old former mayor of the 308th largest city in the country. Former Mayor Pete doesn’t think very highly of the Obama-Biden record.

    Joe Biden has officially formed a transition team that will be led by former Delaware Sen. Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden adviser who also led his transition as vice president in 2008, a Biden campaign aide confirmed to CNN. This team is a preliminary group that will focus on developing the infrastructure of the transition effort. The full rollout of the team is expected later this fall, the aide said, noting that the timing of today's announcement falls in line with the timeline of past non-incumbent candidates who developed a transition team.

    Popular podcast host Joe Rogan is under fire for an old podcast clip that has surfaced in which he laughs over comments his friend made about coercing women to perform oral sex on him. Attention to celebrities' thoughts on sexual harassment and assault heightened this week after multiple women came forward and alleged that comedian Chris D’Elia sexually harassed them when they were underage. Twitter users resurfaced a clip from 2011 when Rogan hosted comedian Joey Diaz on his podcast. In the clip, Rogan laughs after Diaz boasted that he wouldn't allow women comedians onstage without performing oral sex on...

    Thursday on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, host Joe Rogan said left-wing media have “completely ignored” former Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated verbal flubs and judged that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is “clearly” in some form of “cognitive decline.” JOE ROGAN: I’m seeing this one thing that I keep hearing over and over again from people of the left that really disturbs me is this concession that what you’re voting for is the Cabinet, you’re voting for the Supreme Court, you’re voting for someone who’s not going to reverse Roe vs. Wade. That’s what I keep hearing from my...

    The principal of a K-12 school in Windsor, Vermont has been fired by her school board after a Facebook post in which she said she was against the “coercive measures” used by the far-left Black Lives Matter movement, according to the New York Post. Tiffany Riley, principal of Windsor School since 2015, declared on Facebook that while she “firmly believe[s] that Black Lives Matter,” “I DO NOT agree with the coercive measures taken to get this point across; some of which are falsified in an attempt to prove a point,” adding that she does not believe that “people should be...

    President Donald Trump got over 100,000 more votes in this week’s Georgia primary than Joe Biden. According to the most recent results posted by The Washington Post, Trump received 809,881 votes in the state’s Republican primary, while Biden collected 702,460 votes in the Democrats’ contest.

Bernie Sanders, (82,017 votes ) combined. According to Newsweek, Trump outperformed former President Barack Obama’s totals from the Georgia primary in 2012. Obama...

    A former national surrogate for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., ripped into white congressional Democrats on Monday after they wore African-patterned garb and knelt in a demonstration against racism and police brutality. "I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that they draped these white people in kente cloth to 'honor' him. This has to be hell," author Frederick Joseph tweeted, also arguing that black Americans are "being pandered to, and ultimately, disrespected." In a tweet thread, he argued that Democrats were failing in their attempts to be helpful amid ongoing strife surrounding George Floyd's death. He specifically took aim...

Yes, to commemorate D-Day, Matt Duss took that famous photo of allied forces off the coast of France and called it the “largest ANTIFA operation in history.” He’s not the first to compare World War II veterans to Antifa — CNN’s Chris Cuomo famously did as well — but as plenty pointed out, Antifa defaced the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. this week. Now NPR political Mara Liasson is making the same dumb comparison: Biggest antifa rally in history. https://t.co/ypa46PvYx1 — Mara...

    Even by the standards of partisan vitriol being hurled in all directions amid civil unrest and the coronavirus pandemic, a remarkable dispute is raging among Bernie Sanders alumni in the aftermath of his second failed presidential campaign. Current and former Sanders staffers have lashed out at one another in recent days, concerning both general gripes about working with the Democratic establishment and personal shots at individuals’ post-campaign activities. Former Sanders speechwriter David Sirota has been critical of the campaign, tweeting repeatedly about its failures and how those involved, including himself, “should accept their blame” for Sanders’ loss.

    ... Last week Mr. Biden made a huge concession to the man he defeated, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and the Vermont socialist’s wing of the Democratic Party. The two men announced six “unity task forces” to “explore possible policy initiatives” on climate change, criminal justice, the economy, education, health care and immigration. Mr. Biden selected five members for each group and Mr. Sanders three; both men named a co-chairman for each committee. The two of them portrayed this as an effort to unify Democrats, which Mr. Biden called “key to defeating Donald Trump.” He said the task forces “will be essential...

    Score one for former Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang. A federal appeals court on Tuesday agreed with a lower federal court judge’s ruling that the Democratic presidential primary contest must be included on the ballot when New York holds its primary on June 23. *snip* Sanders, the populist senator from Vermont, suspended his presidential campaign in April and endorsed presumptive nominee Joe Biden a week later. But Sanders pledged to keep his name on the ballot in all upcoming primaries and caucuses to accumulate as many delegates as possible at this summer’s convention.
