    Sanders would beat Trump by 7 pts in Pa?


    Pocahontas would beat Trump by 3 pts in Pa?


    I think Joe would win Pa. By double digits?

    Nope. If everything went well for him I could see him winning by 3 or 4., however.

  2. Bitterlaw says:

    I think Trump is in trouble in PA. Biden would win it by 5. Sanders? Too close to call because hatred of Trump in the suburbs is still white hot but Sanders is a kook. The rest? Trump wins by less than 100,000 votes.

  3. CG says:

    HHR Rule-

    Disregard any poll that does not have both Sanders and Biden running against Trump! If Sanders is not nominated, he is going to run third party! Biden might do the same if he loses the nomination! Trump is untouchable!

  4. From the last thread, Planned Parenthood is heavily involved in politics, including donating to political candidates. And yes Democratic politicians would encourage business owners to contribute to it. The vast majority of its donations go to Democrats. From NPR:

    “Deirdre Schifeling, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, which along with Planned Parenthood Action Fund constitutes Planned Parenthood’s political operation, says the group has committed an initial investment of $20 million to be used mostly on Senate and gubernatorial contests in eight states.
    “We will be supporting candidates who support reproductive rights,” Schifeling says, adding that such rights are “really at stake in the country, especially this year.” She says “we support candidates who support access to Planned Parenthood and who support women and all people making their own health care decisions without interference from politicians.”

    Parody City two days in a row ^

  6. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    3. Am curious CG, what makes you think that Biden may run third party?

  7. CG says:

    Like many politicians, including Ronald Reagan and both George Bushes, Mitt Romney changed his position on abortion from pro-choice to Pro-Life over a period of several years. Romney, (whom of course was also a businessman during his 1994 U.S. Senate run) cited specific policy matters years later that led to an evolution in his thinking.

    Donald Trump had a similar change as soon as he became a candidate for President. If genuine (which I doubt), then good, but now we are being presented with the theory that Trump was always Pro-Life and simply claimed to be pro-choice for “business reasons.”


  8. CG says:

    I don’t think Biden will run third party. I was trying to demonstrate how that concept is just as dumb as the one you presented that Sanders might run third party if not nominated or that scores of liberals would refuse to support Biden as the nominee. I wish there was a “sarcasm font.”

  9. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    8. Sanders is not even a Democrat. He is an independent and self proclaimed socialist. He was elected to the Vermont Senate seat as an independent. He has no loyalty to the Democratic Party. We will see what happens. There is no comparison with a life long Democrat like Biden. Unfortunately, you often attempt to belittle people that disagree with you.

  10. CG says:

    Sorry, it’s a dumb theory. I even said “many apologies” yesterday when blasting the dumb theory because I did not want to hurt your feelings, but it is a very, very, very dumb theory.

    Sanders might attack Biden during the primaries. He may even say something like “I can win better than Biden can and it will be a mistake not to pick me”, but I promise you that if Sanders is not nominated, he will support the eventual nominee, be it Biden or whomever, and so will the overwhelming vast majority of “Berniecrats.”

  11. “but I promise you that if Sanders is not nominated, he will support the eventual nominee.”

    You may be right, but I question your certainty. You cannot make this type of promise as you don’t know what is going on in Sanders mind. Only Sanders does.

  12. CG says:

    It seems to be SDC that you just wanted to throw your theory out there, even though nobody in the political world is suggesting that Sanders running third party in 2020 is an even remote possibility, because you and your fellow “Trump is untouchable” cohorts want to be able to claim that any poll showing any sort of general election trouble for Trump is moot and should be “tossed” because they are not including the possibility that the two Democrat frontrunners are somehow *both* going to run against Trump and that the anti-Trump vote among the committed left will be split between candidates in November.

    Is there *anyone else* out there who thinks that Sanders might run third party if Biden is nominated? (For one thing he wouldn’t have ballot access in just about every state due to “sore loser” laws. No different than the 2016 GOP candidates who were upset about Trump.)


  13. CG says:

    100 percent certainty.

    Whatever he might wind up privately thinking about Biden after the primaries will not matter. He is NOT going to run third party and I don’t care how many “woke” young San Diegoans you are running into at hipster coffee shops a la Jacob Wohl, if they are liberal and they hate Trump, if Biden is the nominee, they will vote for Biden in November, and be EXCITED to do so.

  14. Wes says:

    I’ve finally figured it out:

    Everything SDC posts is a passive-aggressive pro-Trump diatribe.

    Make the case for why Trump will lose.

    SDC will declare you can’t see the future.

    Make the case for why Trump is a guaranteed winner.

    SDC conveniently says nothing.

    Point out polling along with Dems’ actual history of primary results indicates Dems are most interested in beating Trump and thus willing to nominate someone nominally less liberal over an overt socialist.

    SDC creates some lunatic Rube-Goldberg Scheme wherein brainwashed millennials will somehow rush to the aging Bernie Sanders riding in on his white horse to run as an Indy in the election and cost a nominally impure candidate the election, thus giving Trump four more years in Washington. Never mind the fact that Sanders has already filed for reelection to the Senate and knows he holds his seat only because the DPVT lets him be it’s de facto candidate—a status they would quickly revoke if Sanders helped reelect the President the Dems most hate.

    The sheer mindlessness of SDC’s recent analysis makes me hope he’s posting parodies and not being serious.

    Sadly I think he 100% believes the inane drivel he’s spouting regarding the upcoming election.

  15. CG says:

    I do think there is a possibility that at a debate, a moderator will ask for a show of hands as to who is not willing to commit to supporting the party’s nominee, no matter what.

    A crusty old, far-left Senator might raise his hand and say not he.

    But that will be Mike Gravel, not Bernie Sanders.

  16. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    For those who were certain that Trump would lose in 2020, these must be difficult times, particularly after the Mueller report. Trump’s upturn in the polls only aggravates the sense of uncertainty and disappointment.

    By saying we do not know what will happen in 2020, and whether Trump will be re-elected or not, am obviously offending those who are 100% certain Trump is doomed. Sadly many Democratic pundits share my uncertainty. Am feeling like I have taken away Linus’s security blanket.

  17. Wes says:

    Your profession of uncertainty would be more believable if you didn’t apply it strictly to declarations that Trump will lose. That you never apply the same logic when Marv, Gameboy, and Phoenixrisen declare Trump will win re-election casts your motivations into doubt.

    That you had to concoct a Byzantine scheme that reads like the plot of a John Frankenheimer or David Lynch movie whereby Sanders throws away his political career on a q u ixotic Indy bid that will only reelect Donald Trump is quite revealing about your thoughts regarding the 2020 cycle.

  18. CG says:

    I don’t believe anybody on here has ever said that Trump is “certain” to lose in 2020. Perhaps SDC himself back in December when he went on for a few days about Trump being a criminal whom should be removed from office by any legal means necessary and then prosecuted. He quickly got over that though. He blamed it on being given “bad information.”

    Some people though simply want the “security blanket” of thinking they can “toss” any poll that does not look good for their guy, hence SDC holding out hope that all polling is irrelevant because Sanders might run third party.

    The denizen of HHR even attacks the webmaster these days for publishing polls.

    it is unwise to think successful people have no core … both trump and romney have had decades of success … that is not random chance

    both also have apparently well adjusted children, you cannot hide that in a child. there is a reason the kennedy children were all basket cases

    what is their core?

    romney i would guess, and it is a guess, believes he is a faithful mormon. i think he believes trump is not a faithful mormon.

    trump i would guess, and again it is a guess, thinks he is an alpha-male pragmatist, of the 1950’s variety. in his younger years i would guess he wanted to be steve mcqueen … basically screw around with a bunch of pretty women, while still protecting his children


    doing what is necessary to get ahead in business.


    later in life … when he could no longer get playboy bunnies, settling on a trophy-wife who he probably has an arrangement with and is now focusing on trying to do something before he dies.

    think don draper in mad men.

  33. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    33. “romney i would guess, and it is a guess, believes he is a faithful mormon. i think he believes trump is not a faithful mormon.”

    Romney reflects Utah’s dislike of Trump — Mormon voters in particular find him vulgar and coarse. In 2016, Trump only pulled 14% of the vote in the Utah primary; in heavily Mormon Utah County Trump only pulled 9% of the vote.

    Also Utah does not have the economic issues that attract a lot of voters to Trump. The middle class is thriving in Utah, and the economy is booming.

    Tech is particularly doing well. The estimate is 116,100 people work directly in tech in Utah, and their average salary is $102,000. Tech is growing at over 5% a year and now constitutes about 15% of the economy. Other sectors of the economy are doing well too. Even with a high birth rate, it is still a challenge to graduate enough kids out of Utah colleges to fill the jobs.

    By the way, a lot of Utahns consider Romney an Easterner. He never really connected with the state until he ran the Olympics. In his campaign he emphasized “Utah values” in his adds to make up for his being from out-of-state.

  47. dblaikie says:

    The Rasmussen poll has dropped over the past 3 days. It could just be just noise in the rolling average but let’s not go down that road and assume the poll is accurate. If that is true it proves that Trump’s approval is tied to the economy. The large one day drop in the stock market but more importantly fears over a trade war with China led to concern about continued economic growth and that lead to a drop in Trump’s approval.

    The obvious lesson is that in 2020 the economy is all important. If the economy implodes with our fight with China, Trump would pay a steep political price and even with this weak dem field he could well lose which means I will lose to Wes. If the economy stays strong Wes is going to send me a delicious bottle of Highland Park Single Malt.

    Still waiting on sheotholes like Philly, Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, etc to do the same.

  49. NYCmike says:

    -It looks like someone is aware of the role Congress plays in regard to spending.

    “There’s plenty of blame to go around for the spending orgy. Politicians on both sides of the aisle like nothing more than boosting federal spending — particularly when it appears to come at no cost to taxpayers. That’s why talk of the Trump administration cutting a deal with Democrats on a $2 trillion infrastructure spending spree is so troubling.”

  50. NYCmike says:

    All the Republican Congress had to do, whenever they were in power, was limit the amount of the increase in spending to a smaller amount than everybody wanted, and we would be in a much better situation.

    Alas, Trump.

    Of course, I am not sure how to explain the first 16 years of this century, but people like Wes and Bitterlaw don’t care about it anyway.

  51. mnw says:

    This fascinates me, but probably nobody else:

    KISS lead singer Gene Simmons went to the WH today & gushed love all over PDT!

    I had wrongly assumed that Simmons was a cookie cutter leftoid, because back in the day, he used to end KISS concerts by shouting, “There are no borders! There are no walls! There’s only ONE nation! And that’s KISS nation! Goodnight everybody!” …(pardon me while I barf)

    I knew his family included Jewish refugees from the Nazis, & that some of them were concentration camp survivors. He used to be a HS history teacher.

    The lesson he seems to have drawn from the experiences of his grandparents’ generation appears to be, “Military preparedness is a VERY good thing, & that young leftists hating on ‘the Israeli govt’ is… alarming.” He also dropped by the Pentagon today… to say ‘thanks.’

  52. Wes says:

    Mnw, Gene Simmons was a lifelong liberal until recently. He voted for Obama in 2008 but recanted and endorsed Romney in 2012 and Trump in 2016, citing each man’s business acumen in his endorsement.

    He’s still probably notionally liberal but because of his concerns with the minutiae of business dealings seems to have concluded having a business-oriented Republican serve as President is preferable to having a Dem who’s probably closer to him on social issues reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

  53. Wes says:

    Heh. Mikey thinks a Republican Congress with a big-spending President of either party on one side and media eager to dredge up sob stories about people cut off from their government goodies on the other is going to unilaterally cut spending.

    Ironically Republicans mostly held the line on spending when Bill Clinton—one of the Presidents most reviled here on HHR—was President.

    GWB, Obama, and Trump of course never even considered working with the congressional GOP on spending cuts. (Remember the caterwauling over cutting $61 billion out of the budget and the sequester in 201?)

    With no backing from even Presidents in their own party, somehow congressional Republicans were supposed to get everything done.

    That’s Mikey logic anyway.

    Maybe we should install a Clinton clone as President with a more media-savvy Gingrich as Speaker to return to the lacyon days of the mid- to late-‘90s.

    Damned if spending didn’t come under control for the first time in decades back then with a booming economy as a side benefit.

    You see Simmons’ turnaround a lot differently than I do. I don’t think it has ANYTHING AT ALL to do with the “minutiae of business dealings,” and EVERYTHING to do with the fact that he’s a Jew & concerned about Israel & the leftwing drift toward anti-semitism.

    What the hell does his visit to the gd PENTAGON today have to do with the “minutiae of business dealings”? (correct answer? nothing whatsoever)

    Wow! Unlike me to get excited over polling but… ultra-lib Daily Kos Pollster Civiqs

    Biden 48% Trump 44% (against the run of all other polling) demographics in the poll “Blacks Trump 18%” ! (Question #11)

  63. Wes says:

    Mnw, while I’m sure Israel was a factor in Simmons’ recent move to the political Right I can only use his own words to describe why even before Donald Trump he began to shift to a pro-GOP stance:

    “Hindsight is 20/20,” he said. “I have some real issues with the economy and how it’s being done. America should be in business and it should be run by a businessman.”

    This is from his 2012 endorsement of Romney. Clearly economics is important to Simmons and has been a substantial factor in his political evolution.

  64. Wes says:

    Simmons also had this to say about Trump in 2017:

    “A lot of people are unhappy, perhaps rightfully so,” Gene begins. “But the Dow Jones Industrial (average is) 26,000 or so, job rates are down to 3.9 percent, the economy is booming like never before. The rest of it — politics. You like the guy, vote him back in. You don’t like guy, just make sure nobody votes him back in. My assessment is very clear — unless he’s impeached, if there are no more big wars, and if the Dow approaches 29,000, which it may, not only will President Trump be re-elected, but it’ll be a landslide.”

    Simmons continues, “Families only care about two things: Is my family safe? Which means war, police, things like that. And can I feed my family? Do I have a job? Am I getting paid well? The rest is politics. If you’re going to after President Trump for having an affair, you have to go all the way to George Washington and [Justin] Trudeau’s father, everybody. You have to go after men. The tendency to wander.”

    Since Simmons makes no direct mention of Israel and once again focuses on economics I’m going to take him at his word and assume once again his principal concerns have to do with the state of the economy.

  67. mnw says:


    I seem to constantly have to post here, to prove the incredibly, blindingly OBVIOUS. I wonder if you even read what Simmons SAID yesterday? I suspect you did not:

    Summarizing from the USAToday article about his visit to the WH on Thursday:

    “Simmons choked back tears as he described his mother having been sent to a Nazi concentration camp at the age of 14; surviving the camp; giving birth to him in Israel; & then coming to America. ‘For the first time in our lives, we were safe. Believe me, America is the promised land for everybody,’ Simmons said. He then thanked U.S. armed forces veterans for their service after he spoke.”

    Yes, clearly, “the minutiae of business” was his principal concern! /s

  68. Wes says:

    Wow, Mnw!

    A little testy today?

    I posted direct quotes from Simmons predating anything he said yesterday explaining his support of both Romney and Trump.

    I even acknowledged while Israel is a concern of his it was not at all what he cited in his shift away from the Dems. You still feel some need to argue.

    Have fun with that.

  70. Wes says:

    I wasn’t trying to create any controversy. I posted Simmons’ own statements explaining his support for Romney and Trump. Mnw seemed to take it personally because I dared point out what Simmons himself said explaining his support for the last two GOP presidential candidates. How that equates to my trying to create controversy I have no clue.

    Of course Mnw didn’t have to damn near give himself a heart attack because of outrage at what I said, but each to his own.
