Biden Surges Nationally and in NH

CNN came out with a new poll this morning that showed Joe Biden blowing away the Democraic field nationally.

Joe Biden 39%
Bernie Sanders 15%
Elizabeth Warren 8%
Pete Buttigieg 7%
Beto O’Rourke 6%
Kamala Harris 5%
Cory Booker 2%

Bill de Blasio <1%
Tim Ryan <1%
Michael Bennet 0%
Steve Bullock 0%
John Delaney 0%
John Hickenlooper 0%
Wayne Messam 0%
Seth Moulton 0%

This poll was done April 25-28 among 411 likely voters. Quinnipiac University has similiar numbers today as well showing Biden opening up a huge lead.

Joe Biden 38%

This poll was done April 26-29 among 419 Democratic primary voters. Meanwhile in New Hampshire, Suffolk University is showing Biden moving ahead of Sanders in one of Sanders’ better early states.

Joe Biden 20%
Bernie Sanders 12%
Pete Buttigieg 12%

    Tax cut for the rich, Messy the Moron?

    You mean the tax cut that has rich people howling in outrage because it scales down the SALT deduction and makes higher income people feel the full burden of high state and local taxes?

    THAT “tax cut for the rich”?

    Of course all the increased federal spending had nothing to do with the high deficits, I’m sure.

    By the way, I’m still waiting to hear from you when Brenda Snipes became a Republican.

    Boy isn’t it amazing how these favorable polls come out just as Uncle Joe officially launches. I am sure it is just coincidence.

    Until I listened to Rush today I thought that Uncle Joe had a normal, garden variety, american family. Boy was I misled as Rush outed all the sordid, drug soaked, greedy, members of the Biden clan. Rush sourced it all too.

    Edicate states that the families of candidates should be left alone. However that went out the window during the last two years as the media has trashed the Trump children and his spouse.

  8. Tina says:

    The site admin should just rename the website Blogs for Biden.

    The jebots will return,

  9. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The problem Biden now has is he is going to be asked where he stands on all the hot button leftist issues: The Green New deal, free medical care and free college, open borders, tariffs, the evils of “whiteness.” Its not easy to waltz through quicksand; its going to get ugly quick.

  10. Tina says:

    Yeah just a coincidence.

    He could not even fill a school hall.

    Front row went to sleep,

  11. Tina says:

    Does Biden still think Anita hill is a liar?

    He said that she was in 1998”

    That will be a hoot,

    7. “Until I listened to Rush today I thought that Uncle Joe had a normal, garden variety, american family. Boy was I misled as Rush outed all the sordid, drug soaked, greedy, members of the Biden clan. Rush sourced it all too.”

    So Trump is going to bring all this information out? A guy who paid hush money to a prostitute?

  13. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    10. “He could not even fill a school hall. Front row went to sleep,”

    Yes, but there were noisy kids in the back row, which keep them awake.

    My main memory of Biden was his overly talkative debate performance during the vice presidential debate with Paul Ryan. By contrast, Ryan just stood their with his mouth open like a goldfish and said very little. The question it raised was why on earth Romney picked Ryan as his VP.

    Actually, a Trump-Biden debate would be interesting. Under pressure, Biden is likely to babble a lot strange things.

    7. No San Diego, Rush brought it out. Give me a break the media has spent two years trashing the Trump family, claiming that they were selling out the country to the Russians. Now we discover they are subpoenaing even the debt card records of even Tiffany Trump — that is just fine. Not one of your better posts San Diego.

  16. dblaikie says:

    Sorry about all the evens in the last post.

  17. phil says:

    Looks like the MSM has settled in on Biden as their guy. No mystery why. They hate Trump and believe, with justification, that Biden has the best chance to take him out. I’m sure they would prefer any of the socialists in the rest of the field, but they aren’t willing to roll the dice on any of them. They want Trump gone.

  18. dblaikie says:

    I hope they nominate Uncle Joe! After his slurred speech last night he will be lucky to make it through the Iowa and New Hampshire winter. If they were smart they would nominate the guy from Indy. Just like Carter in 76 election he is a tabla rasa that folks who picture him and paint him the way they want. The mayor knows it too, that is why you will see him muddy up all his positions.

  19. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Bob Mueller was a great HERO to the Radical Left Democrats. Now that the Mueller Report is finished, with a finding of NO COLLUSION & NO OBSTRUCTION (based on a review of Report by our highly respected A.G.), the Dems are going around saying, “Bob who, sorry, don’t know the man.”

  20. Tina says:

    Two air craft carriers have departed, one from Virginia and the other from San Diego,

    Trump has just told Cuba to get their paws off Venezuela or he will blockade it.

    Jebots triggered…..

  21. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Biden is fully capable of doing or saying something dumb. VP candidates often do not succeed as presidential candidates — Humphrey, Quayle and Gore are examples. I am not sure Biden has the gravitas to be president. He tends to say silly things at times.

    I would rate him as the early favorite over Trump, but anything could happen. The end of the Mueller investigation, and a strong economy, will help Trump.

    However, Biden has to get through the primary first. He had a poll bounce after his announcement, but it may not last How much free stuff will he need to offer to counter the other candidates who think they are Santa Claus?

  23. Messy says:

    Meanwhile, it turns out that Barr was lying about the results of the Meuller report:

    Mueller complained to Barr that his letter did not capture ‘context’ of probe

    Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III expressed his concerns in a letter to William P. Barr after the attorney general publicized Mueller’s principal conclusions. The letter was followed by a phone call during which Mueller pressed Barr to release executive summaries of his report.

  24. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    20. “Two air craft carriers have departed, one from Virginia and the other from San Diego”

    The US Theodore Roosevelt left the Port of San Diego today, but it has been doing so regularly for routine training (after major renovation last year). Do you have any indication it left because of the situation in Venezuela?

  25. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    23. Where in the statement you quoted does it say Barr lied? Saying the letter did not “capture its context” appears to admit the report was correct, but subject to a varied interpretation.

  26. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed Tuesday that embattled Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro was preparing to leave the country for Cuba, but was talked out of it by Russia.

    “We’ve watched throughout the day, it’s been a long time since anyone’s seen Maduro,” Pompeo said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.”
    “He had an airplane on the tarmac, he was ready to leave this morning as we understand it and the Russians indicated he should stay.”
    “He was headed for Havana,” Pompeo said.”

  27. Tina says:

    Weissman must be whining about his firing,

    Never Ran (a/k/a Tina) should start her own blog. Dave’s is still going after 15 years even if he does not only run pro-Trump polls for her.

  29. Tina says:

    Mueller was actually concerned with media representations and interpretations of Barr’s letter and specifically stated he did not think Barr’s representation was inaccurate.

  30. Tina says:

    Did Dave Wissing run for office?

    Is that a pre requisite for commenting here?

    News to me.

  31. Tina says:

    Mulehead appears to be complaining about the media, not Barr’s summary.

    Messy lsd, try a new drug, ok?na

  32. Messy says:

    25. The Meuller report was correct, but Barr lied about it by saying that Meuller citing the rule against indicting a president never happened. That’s lying.

  33. Messy says:

    They’re yelling about impeaching Barr first.

  34. Bitterlaw says:

    You are the only one calling somebody with the guts to run “Quittens.” Own the irony, Never Ran.

  35. Tina says:

    So, Mulehead confirms that Barr’s summary is not inaccurate.

    Took wp several pages to verify that

  36. lisab says:

    these polls are fake

    there is just no way warren is ahead of sanders or even third or fourth right now

    i doubt she is in 6th place

  37. lisab says:

    it does seem clear that the dem establishment does not want sanders

  38. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    I think Sanders is beginning rub people the wrong way. Advocating for felons, including the Boston bomber, being allowed to vote, and the past history of Sanders endorsing communist leaders has taken a toll on his popularity. Also he is increasingly coming across as an unpleasant, dogmatic old man. Being elderly and grumpy is not a political virtue.

  39. jason says:

    Mulehead appears to be complaining about the media, not Barr’s summary.”


    Mueller says there is nothing inaccurate about the summary, which btw Barr does not say is a summary.

  40. jason says:

    So Messy moron is accusing Barr of lying…

    “In a cordial and professional conversation, the Special Counsel emphasized that nothing in the Attorney General’s March 24 letter was inaccurate or misleading.”

    I think inaccurate or misleading would cover lying…

  41. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    We have Democratic candidates advocating for spending billions, and even trillions of dollars, on their pet projects. That is not enough. Its time for a Democrats to break new ground and promise to spend quadrillions of dollars on free stuff for their voters.

    Hello all,
    I am new to this group. I have always considered myself an independent, but with favor towards liberals. I voted for Obama both terms, but could not vote for Hillary Clinton, so voted for Trump (though not my first choice). Since then I have seen a lot of positive changes Trump has made or is striving to achieve. I believe he really puts our countries needs first. I just cannot stand with the libs anymore, and don’t feel they are taking our country in the right direction. The 2020 election is extremely personal to me because Pete Buttigieg is my brother-in-law, and I cannot imagine him and Chasten being the voice for our country. The maturity level and lack of experience has me extremely concerned.

    Game of Thrones Keeps Killing Off Entire Immigrant Populations, and It’s a Problem

    On last night’s Game of Thrones, the priestess Melisandre sauntered in at the last possible minute to light up the Arakhs of the Dothraki in flames. It offered both the assembled forces of Winterfell and the audience at home a brief glimmer of hope before the next 60 or so minutes of horror-film-meets-battle-scene tension, and resulted in a clever cinematic trick. The swift extinguishing of that flame, like a city skyline experiencing a rolling blackout, telegraphed the pure carnage that awaited without zooming in on the details.

    Narratively, however, it also literally represented the end of what was left of Daenerys’s 100,000-plus Dothraki horde. Presumably, there are the woman and children and possibly a few rogue hordes of Dothraki still left in Essos, but unless the show pulls a trick of “Oh, we actually have some more Dothraki over here, you just couldn’t see them! It was dark!” this may have been their send-off from the show. It was an abrupt end to an entire group whom we were introduced to in the very first episode, and a people we’ve spent more time with and understand better than many of the populations of the actual Seven Kingdoms. (What is even happening in, say, the Reach, lately?) And it points to a worrying problem.

    Where once it seemed like Game of Thrones had something to say on the topic of immigration and the introduction of new populations to the staid old continent of Westeros, I’m no longer sure it’s interested in such heady ideas anymore. It continues to burn up entire ethnicities like kindling in the fire of expensive battle scenes, revealing that it only introduced them in the first place to populate its numerous bloodbaths. Entire peoples with proud, interesting histories have been given the send-off of a random red-shirt cadet in Star Trek.

    Officers Had No Duty to Protect Students in Parkland Massacre, Judge Rules

    The school district and sheriff’s office in the Florida county that is home to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had no constitutional duty to protect the students there during the deadly February massacre, a federal judge has said in a ruling.

    The Dec. 12 ruling, by Judge Beth Bloom, came on the same day that a county judge, Patti Englander Henning, came to the opposite conclusion. Judge Henning found that Scot Peterson, the armed sheriff’s deputy who heard the gunfire but did not run in and try to stop the attack, did have an obligation to confront Mr. Cruz.

    “Neither the Constitution, nor state law, impose a general duty upon police officers or other governmental officials to protect individual persons from harm — even when they know the harm will occur,” said Darren L. Hutchinson, a professor and associate dean at the University of Florida School of Law. “Police can watch someone attack you, refuse to intervene and not violate the Constitution.”

    .@tribelaw: What we need is public open intensive fact-gathering & investigation. Let the people of the U.S. see how [allegedly] corruptly this leader won his office and how [allegedly] corruptly he is trying to hold onto it. Then the time may well come [for impeachment]. #AMJoy

    48. Lisab, at the Mandalay Bay shooting in Las Vegas two police officers also stayed put and did not engage the shooter
    “Newly released body camera footage shows two Las Vegas police officers holding their position in a hallway one floor beneath the Oct. 1 gunman for nearly five minutes as rounds are continually fired into the Route 91 Harvest festival crowd below.
    Officer Cordell Hendrex utters an expletive on the video while on the 31st floor, reacting to the sound of rapid gunfire, which he later described in a report as being “like thunder all around and above us.”
    Four and a half minutes would pass between the moment Hendrex and his first-day trainee, Elif Varsin, stepped out from an elevator into the hallway in the middle of the mass shooting and what would be the final volley of gunfire.”
    During the Los Angeles riots in 1992, the police totally abandoned the entire community of Korea Town; the Korean shopkeepers, who had military training, heroically defended themselves – here is the link to a video about it, which is entitled: “We had to bear arms.”

  52. lisab says:


    i actually agree that the police have no duty to go after a shooter, particularly when alone.

    somewhere i read that some police forces recomment a team of four before going after a shooter in a building

  53. lisab says:

    however, i would not put myself into a situation where i was an officer but would not defend a school full of children against a shooter.

    i understand not everyone can be brave, especially when alone, but the officer in question did not go in even when help arrived

  54. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    54. Have to disagree lisab. The protocol law enforcement agencies now follow is to immediately go in and down the shooter.

    The Trolley Barn Square shooting in Salt Lake City in 2007 was an example how effective the approach is. Below are quotes from an AP article about it. A link to a video is also provided below.

    An off-duty Ogden officer immediately challenged the shooter; than another officer arrived who also engaged him. The SWAT team came and finished him off. About 7 minutes after the 9-11 call the shooter was dead.

    AP “Trolley Barn Square Operation to be used as a Case Study”

    “Police response to a deadly shooting spree in a shopping mall is being called “textbook” and will be used as a case study by other police departments.

    Utah law enforcement officials credit post-Columbine training and the state’s advanced cross-agency communications system for stopping the rampage quickly.

    Stu Smith, director of the Utah Crime Lab, said the damage could have been “10 times worse” without the swift action.

    “God help everybody if (the shooter) had another 15 or 20 minutes to have free rein inside that mall,” Smith said.

    Instead, Sulejman Talovic, 18, had about seven minutes, during which he killed five people and wounded four with a 12-gauge shotgun. The first 911 call was reported at 6:44 p.m. and Talovic was cornered and killed by four Salt Lake City officers and an off-duty Ogden officer by 6:50 p.m., police said.

    * * * *

    “In these types of situations, time is not on your side – it’s your enemy,” said Doubt, who helped conduct the mall simulation as a SWAT commander. “They’re trained to ask the question: ‘Is someone dying right now?’ If the answer is yes, they go in.”

    As the officers who responded to the initial call searched for the shooter inside, an army of support amassed outside.

    In a flash, Trolley Square was surrounded by more than 200 police personnel from throughout the Salt Lake valley, 100 firefighters, a host of medical experts and the state crime lab. Highway Patrol units shut off the mall’s perimeter and a state helicopter spotlighted the mall and the surrounding neighborhood.”

    Here is a link to a mall video. You hear the shooter being engaged by individual police immediately, then see the SWAT team go in an finish him off.

  55. lisab says:


    i have read the same things,

    and … in addition …

    iirc, something like 10% of people who engage shooters alone, die.

    thus the four team rule. there was something like a 75% chance of engaging a shooter turned out well, and a 25% chance of injury or death to the officer.

    however, those numbers are from memory, so they could be way off

  56. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    55. By the way, Trolley Barn Square mall is one of the few posted “gun free zones” in Utah. Given Utah has issued 700,000 concealed carry permits, the chances of a concealed carry holder at other malls is pretty high (although a lot of the permits are held by people who do not live in Utah).

    In Utah an 18-20 year old can even get a provisional concealed carry permit. Since anti-gun zealots believe the number of guns increases the homicide rate, they are surprised that Utah has the 10th lowest homicide rate in the nation.

  57. lisab says:

    and just to be clear,

    the issue was not whether shooters should be confronted, the people who did the training/study agreed they should be engaged asap

    the issue was whether a lone cop could effectively clear a building alone … because remember they would not necessarily know if there was only one shooter

  58. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    56. Interesting info. Believe time at the gun range, training and practice may the best way to raise the odds of survival. Tactically, if trained property, having a team of four you would think would increase the odds of survival. The Trolley Barn Square shooter was first hit by an officer who managed to get behind him and open fire, then as you heard the SWAT team turned him into Swiss cheese. There also was a civilian on the second floor who was acting as a spotter for the officers, and pointed to where the shooter was.

  59. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    58. My feeling is if children are being shoot, my survival becomes secondary. I realize everyone is not going to feel the same way.

  60. lisab says:

    massachusetts is much more densely populated than utah and has only a slightly higher homicide rate

    and much stricter gun laws

  61. lisab says:

    I realize everyone is not going to feel the same way.

    my point exactly.

    plus, i don’t know about you, but i have never had to test my courage in a situation where i had to go put my life on the line by

    running into a building with a handgun

    to confront an unknown number of shooters

    who may outgun me, i.e have long guns or worse assault guns,

    and who might look like the other students, because they might be a student(s)

    WASHINGTON(CNN) With Robert Mueller’s investigation finished, Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at its highest level since April 2017 in a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, as the share who say Democrats in Congress are doing too much to investigate the President rises 6 points.

    Trump’s approval rating remains largely negative in the new poll — 52% disapprove and 43% approve — but that approval figure is the highest — by one point — since a CNN poll completed around the 100-day mark of his time in office. At the same time, the share who say they strongly approve of the way the President is handling his job (35%) is at its highest level ever in CNN’s polling.

    Good luck to the Isles (AND the Blues) tonight. One game at a time is the only way to look at it.

    The Sharks’ Couture did something I’ve never seen before after his hat trick– he sort of ‘genuflected’ to the crowd. Pretty cool. Very Quebec-looking.

  92. Trump says:

    I detest wormtongue. Only true believers like dblaikie are worthy of my love. He’ll love me even if I betray the nation.

  93. Phil says:

    Harris disappointing. She lived up to her reputation of smugness in every way, but fell short of the Senator from Hawaii with regard to slander.

  94. dblaikie says:

    94 I want to thank you for bringing comedy to he. To be willing to act like you have special mental needs is very sacrificial.

  95. dblaikie says:

  96. Trump says:

    I want to personally thank you, dblaikie for faithfully lying for me daily.

  97. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Its pretty bad when the only troll left is a fake Trump. A sign of desperation.

    Also find it interesting that Mueller is back biting against Barr. If Mueller felt that Trump engaged in collusion, then he should have said so. Instead he avoided doing so, and is now claiming his failure to do so is being misinterpreted. Talk about not taking responsibility; a Washington bureaucrat at his best.

  98. Wes says:

    Dems just lost another top-tier Senate recruit as Castro bowed out. This could well be 2012 in reverse in the Senate since Jones in AL is a political Dead Man Walking.

  99. NYCmike says:

    “Dems just lost another top-tier Senate recruit as Castro bowed out.”

    -You would think that top-tier candidates would be fighting to get in the races as Democratic enthusiasm is said to be at an all-time high……..

    which Castro? in Texas? yeah, if they thought they would win Texas he would be running.

  101. Phil says:

    Cornyn isn’t losing in Texas regardless of who Democrats put up.

    Now maybe abortion queen Wendy can run.

    She should max out at 43 percent if Democrats have a really good year.

  102. janz says:

    I saw several snippets of Barr vs the Congress. The new AG seems like a rock of confidence. His answers are deliberate, succinct, and to the point, without being particularly abrasive. In fact his responses make the dems in Congress look petty and mean-spirited.

  103. janz says:

    Also, I like the idea of a wider debate being instigated by the WH – Trump Will Meet With Top Advisers To Discuss Plans To Challenge Climate Change Reports.

    So far, the etiology of climate change has been one-sided, with any and all debate to the contrary derided and literally snuffed out.  It would be refreshing to have the so-called settled science of “the consensus” under more scrutiny, with other peer-reviewed evidence that differs from the consensus.  BTW, that consensus figure is a relatively small one – something like 77 of 79 scientists agreeing to AGW, out of a survey conducted and sent to some 10,000 in 2008. 

  104. Phil says:

    Actually, Wes, Schumer forced Castro out. He’s all in on M.J. Hegar. Supposedly she is supposed to be the next superstar Beto, but Castro was forced out. Don’t doubt me here. I think Hegar has raised five million bucks so far – counting on her Air Force tours in Afghanistan to mask her liberalism. Schumer decided that a hard leftist like Castro would not stand a chance in Texas (true) so they are going the war hero fake moderate route this cycle in Texas. They are counting on the MSM to push this new flavor plus Hollywood fund raising (just like Beto) to capture the seat. She may even out raise Cornyn. The fact that it is a presidential year means turnout will be maxed out on both sides.

    With Jones a dead man walking in Alabama Chuckie needs to sweep Colorado, Arizona, and Texas in 2020. That’s what he is going all in on.

    Barr on Mueller letter: ‘The letter’s a bit snitty, and I think it was probably written by one of his staff people.’

  106. Messy says:

    Barr is boycotting the House judiciary hearings. He will be impeached.

  107. gameboy says:

    #111….Good luck with that LOL I hope they try. The whole thing is a farce.

  108. VictrC says:

    It boggles my mind how little people know about impeachment.

    Just because some with political motivation in the house would send articles of impeachment regarding someone to the Senate does not mean they are removed from office, or else Clinton would have been removed from the Presidency for his perjury.

    The Senate votes to convict, and it would take 67 Senators to remove from office.

    Ipso facto Barr will NEVER be impeached and removed from office.

  109. Phil says:

    Who is going to lead impeachment of Barr, Messy? The brain dead Senator from Hawaii? She certainly came off looking great today. Yeah, put her out there. LOL

  110. jason says:

    Barr is boycotting the House judiciary hearings. He will be impeached.”

    He is boycotting because moron Nadler is trying to invent new ways to question him.

    I am glad he told Nadler to basically GFH.

  111. dblaikie says:

    I, for one, hope messy is right! Please dems spend the year focused on impeachment. Impeach Barr and Trump and anyone else. Let the folks see the dems give all their efforts to something that has no purpose. Yes please ignore immigration and the real issues in our Country. Please make a red wave a reality in 2020. So go Maise, Adam, and Jerry give it the old college try and concentrate on impeachment!!!

    ChuckGrassley asks Bill Barr: “What are you doing to investigate unauthorized media contacts by the department and FBI officials during the Russian investigation?”

    Barr: “We have multiple criminal leak investigations underway”

    I an sure Messy wants the truth to get out on this, and supports the investigations.

  116. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    111. “Barr is boycotting the House judiciary hearings. He will be impeached.”

    Wasn’t the original goal to impeach Trump? Has this by default become the matinee sideshow? What is he being impeached for? Not recommending something that Mueller refused to recommend? Not realizing that Mueller did not recommend impeachment for collusion because he was to timid; and felt it was Barr’s job?

    This is a real clown shown the American people are going to get tired of quickly.

  117. jason says:

    John Hinderaker nails it…

    “Barr has lied? About what? The contents of Mueller’s report, which is now public, and whose conclusions are exactly as Barr described them? These people are nuts.

    Finally, why do the Democrats continue beating this dead-as-a-Norwegian-blue-pining-for-the-fjords horse? Because they had an enormous emotional investment in Mueller’s investigation. They viewed the whole thing as a set-up–a consummate Washington insider, close friend and ally of the people on the anti-Trump side, turned loose with an unconstrained mandate to find something–anything–on Donald Trump, with an unlimited budget. How could he fail? He could fail because there was no collusion. The idea that Trump colluded with Russians was ridiculous from the start. And the public didn’t care about much else associated with the faux investigation.

    I am not up on the stages of grief, but the Democrats are in one of them, grieving through their loss of the belief that Robert Mueller would deliver them from the illegitimate Trump presidency. They can’t quite give it up. Thus, when they view the slightly-redacted Mueller report–far less than one percent is blacked out, and Congressmen can view the unreacted version at their leisure–they are like the boy in the old joke. They are convinced there must be a pony in there somewhere.

    Happily, as it turns out, there is no pony. Hence the wailing and gnashing of teeth that we see in the press today.”

  118. jason says:

    Messy Moron is so upset there was no collusion and her “verified” dossier was a fake and a fraud that she wants to impeach the AG.


  119. Wobbles says:

    I don’t care that fake news is not selling, I am still watching.

    “CNN’s prime-time ratings dropped a whopping 26 percent in April compared to last year, according to Nielsen Media Research.

    MSNBC’s ratings were down 14 percent in April 2019 compared to April 2018, while Fox News’s ratings overall were flat.”

    The sharp decrease for CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total viewers since October 2015.

    Biden just announced, and already he has made a gaffe. Romney called him on it.

    “Former Vice President Joe Biden expressed his lack of concern over China as a global competitor to the U.S. at a rally on Wednesday, prompting a grim response from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.

    This will not age well.
    Replying to @sgrubermiller
    Biden is skeptical of the threat of competition from China.

    “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man.”

    “They’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us.” #iacaucus

  130. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    In 2012 Biden challenged Romney’s attack on Russia. He was positively gushy in speaking of our relationship with Russia. Maybe FakeTrump/Paul should ask Mueller to investigate if there was collusion.

    “Romney famously declared Russia as the “greatest geopolitical foe” to the U.S. during the 2012 election.”

    “He acts like he thinks the Cold War is still on, Russia is still our major adversary. I don’t know where he’s been,” Biden said back in 2012. “I mean, we have disagreements with Russia, but they’re united with us on Iran. … One of only two ways we’re getting materials into Afghanistan to our troops is through Russia. They are working closely with us. They’ve just said to Europe if there is an oil shutdown in any way in the Gulf, they’ll consider increasing oil supplies to Europe. This is not 1956.”

    “Once a state whose roads and sidewalks were paved with gold, California has become a state whose roads and sidewalks are coated with feces and whose politicians have learned to scoop up the feculence and serve it with ‘feelings’ to the voters.

    The other polls are also reflecting a bounce in job approval too, generally speaking.
