Sanders Surges Into Tie With Biden in SC

If Joe Biden is hoping South Carolina will be the state that finally launches his campaign ahead of Bernie Sanders, he might not like these latest numbers from Change Research where Bernie Sanders is now tied with Biden for the lead.

PRESIDENT – SOUTH CAROLINA – DEM PRIMARY (Change)
Bernie Sanders 23%
Joe Biden 23%
Tom Steyer 20%
Pete Buttigieg 15%
Elizabeth Warren 9%
Amy Klobuchar 8%
Tulsi Gabbard 1%

This poll was done February 12-14 among 1015 likely primary voters. Michael Bloomberg is not on the ballot in South Carolina and was not included in this poll.

    The Wizard is on a tear. New thread after new thread.

  4. GF says:

    How rich would it be for Biden to limp into SC expecting a bounce into ST only to find that Steyer leapfrogged him into second place while Bernie narrowly wins? I’d love to see Uncle Joe get whacked from behind like that.

  5. Phil says:

    Hoping for a narrow Biden victory in SC – one that keeps him in the game on Super Tuesday ( to divide the vote that day with Bloomberg). Bernie getting a strong second in SC to at least get roughly the same number of SC delegates as Biden. That would be a win win going forward for Bernie.

    As always, every success for Bernie in the Dem primaries is a win for Trump.

    Feel the Bern.

  6. VictrC says:

    GF
    No. We want Biden to hang on as long as possible, keeping those “ahem” “moderate” voters split.

    BTW WTF is up with Steyer being that high. Did I miss something? Is he from SC??

  7. Proud Obamacon says:

    Biden was always the weakest candidate of the bunch. Even when he was supposedly the front runner, it was obvious that he wasn’t going to be the guy. He’s the weakest and LEAST electable, always was! Bye Joe!

    A winning message in November! Bernie will win 35-40 states. Trust me.

  11. Phil says:

    Nate Silver’s current projection of delegates following March 3rd Super Tuesday:

    Sanders 608 (41%)

    Blloomberg. 273 (18%)

    Biden. 270 (18%)

    Buttigieg. 157 (10%)

    Warren. 127 ( 8%)

  18. NYCmike says:

    https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2020/02/impeachment-was-good-for-usa.html

    -“In turn, impeachment is good for America because anything bad for Democrats is good for the USA. Impeachment exposed Democrats for who they are. Impeachment provided the clarity needed for the cleansing. We now see that the ABCs of the Democrat Party are it is abusive, bitter, and communist. Gone is the mask that hid their incrementalism.”

    More wisdom from Surber, whom Robbie guffawed at back in 2017.

    If only he and “CG” had listened more, and “known” less…..

  19. Wes says:

    Dems will be in panic mode if Sanders is the nominee.

    Comparisons to Trump in 2016 go only so far since Trump tapped into a niche the GOP had exploited in the 2014 elections and, aside from the neoprotectionist angle of his platform, tried to run as somewhat of a generic Republican.

    Bernie is going to run as avowed Socialist. That will attract some voters but, as I noted on the previous thread, won’t play well with large swathes of suburban voters who like their retirement accounts and company insurance plans.

    Trump will simply relish making Sanders give muddled obfuscations trying to explain the exorbitant cost of his proposals to the American people. All the gains the Dems have made by running faux moderates in places Trump is unpopular in will go away quickly.

    That’s why establishment Dems are starting to cotton to Bloomberg—Who has his own issues but enough money to at least partly offset them. They know Bloomberg is less likely to hurt them in the suburbs than Sanders.

  20. NYCmike says:

    “neoprotectionist” = Thank GOD companies started getting out of the communist h*llhole called China as they are thugs, criminals, and mass murderers.

  21. Phil says:

    Yep, Sanders will run weaker in the suburbs than HIllary did for the exact reasons cited by Wes. That and a marginal increase in Trump’s share of the black male vote seals the deal in November.

    Book it.

  22. Tina says:

    Increase likely in Hispanic vote too, Phil.

    I think his approval among Hispanics in Nevada is 40%, or close to it.

    Plus some 2016 never trumpets that are now on board.

  23. NYCmike says:

    “Book it.”

    -Uh oh……Trump’s in trouble……every time Phil goes full-Wesley (see Harris, Kamala), bad things happen!

  24. Phil says:

    Agree, Tina. I expect Trump’s share of the Hispanic vote rises a full five percent vs Bernie over his share vs Hillary. Hispanics have benefitted from the Trump economy both in employment and rising wages. That’s a fact.

    You want some proof that Bernie would ensure Trump’s re-election? Please see the way Chris Mathews has been freaking out over the last few days. Want more? Jenny Rubin perhaps the most vocal Never Trumper literally begging Democrats to reject Bernie and turn to her new savior Mini Mike.

  25. Phil says:

    Yep, I dropped the ball on Harris as I’ve acknowledged on multiple occasions…but if you think I have no credibility fine. Listen to Wes. His track record is sterling…or just listen to Chris Mathews, Rubin, Kristol, and James Carville all squealing like pigs.

  26. lisab says:

    what happens if bernie does get the nomination as a full leftist

    and loses badly?

  27. Wes says:

    Don’t worry, Lisa. Bernie will try to run as a leftist, but Chuck Todd and company will assure the electorate that Sanders is really just a harmless left of center moderate.

  32. NYCmike says:

    “but if you think I have no credibility fine.”

    -Joking around, Mr. Phil.

    I should also say – I enjoyed your joke…..”Listen to Wes. His track record is sterling…”.

  33. VictrC says:

    It’s started already. The left is releasing articles about Trump cheating to win in November because they are less than confident about the prospects of their flawed candidates.

    To wit, the Atlantic is running with the “he’s cheating” because he’s buying ads that aren’t truthful. One example. “Trump is taking credit for Obama’s economy”

    Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Had a very liberal friend , on queue this morning, message me the same thing. Obama had 1.5M more jobs created his last three years than Trump did his first three years (of course that stat was from an article that cut off the :job creation” in July of 2019 for Trump), not a full three years.

    Next is that growth was higher for Obama in his last term than Trump despite the fact that they can easily go to the dept of commerce website and see Obama averaged 2.2% growth in his last term, with 2016 coming in a paltry 1.6% and Trump averages 2.7% with growth of nearly 3% in 2018.

    Writing is on the wall if they lose in November.

    BJ,

    Wait for the coming 40% drop and then scoop up the S&P ETF. No way this is a buyer’s market.

    Extremely low rates, all this QE – that only happens when the economy is struggling, not when it’s supposedly “booming.” The game is just about up.

    Melt ups are not booms.

  51. Phil says:

    Bubble? There won’t be a bubble. Once President Sanders takes office there will be a HUGE surge in the stock market as the masses invest in private businesses and corporations. The Sanders increases in business and corporate taxes will result in incredible investments….uh, maybe not.

  119. CG says:

    My goodness, if a Boy Scout like Mayor Pete could get a reaction like that from Klobuchar in a debate, Democrats should shutter to think what would happen if Trump goes at her. Maybe he reminds her of a young staffer and her natural instinct is to hurt him.

    I appreciate the smug, arrogant contempt that Mayor Bloomberg holds for the other people on stage. It reminds me of how I usually feel on political blogs.

    Biggest takeaway so far:

    Stop & frisk and harassment/NDA’s were **OBVIOUS** lines of attack.

    Bloomberg’s answers on both were beyond weak. Meandering, passionless, unconvincing.

    Striking. People were banking on him to be the savior?

    End of Round One: Sanders is winning because he is ahead & nobody has really hurt him. Warren on fire. Biden & Buttigieg very good. Klobuchar bad & dome for. Bloomberg awful but still rich. #DemDebate

  122. BayernFan says:

    If tulsi were there she would excel compared to these bozos.

  123. CG says:

    No guarantees he is right, but Bloomberg is betting that the people on Twitter, especially the left-wingers care about stop and frisk and NDAs but that there are a whole lot of other people who simply want to beat Trump and don’t care about anything else.

    These people are going to continue to cannibalize each other and Bloomberg will have the money to scorch the Earth against whomever is left standing (probably Sanders) once the full panic sets in.

    So, at the half-way mark, sure seems to me that Sanders is biggest winner in this debate. Bloomberg gets taken down and all the non-Bernie candidates continue to fight and split the vote.

  136. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Are you watching?

    Bloomberg just said that Sanders ideology will elect Trump. He said the world already tried communism and it failed.

  137. Tina says:

    No bl, the massive crowd in Arizona is way more impressive.

  138. Cash Cow TM says:

    Wonder which candidate is getting the most minutes of talk time?

    ____________________________
    I bet Bloomberg is thinking to himself what a mistake he made to spend all those hundreds of millions of dollars that resulted in his getting enough % of support in polls to get on the debate stage in NV where he is not even on the ballot.

    His massive media ad buy campaign was too successful too early.

    Now he had to step out from behind the curtain and have to have the spotlight shined on him and participate in the circular firing squad.

  139. Bitterlaw says:

    BOOM. Bloomberg rips the leader of Socialism in America for being a millionaire with 3 houses.

  151. VictrC says:

    Bitter. Sorry, Bloomberg tonight revealed himself to be someone who feels he’s above everyone else.

    You might not like Trump, but I don’t see Bloomberg lifting their spirits by buzzing a car race, or running the pace car. Some might think that this is just pandering, but you know what, it makes American’s feel good, it lifts their spirits, and there wasn’t one person on that stage who would go out and praise America, lift America’s spirits or put America First.

    Trump might say stupid things, and he may have been all the things people said he was (I was one who attacked him in 2016) but he’s better than anyone of these clowns, especially the smug Bloomberg

  152. Cash Cow TM says:

    The good news is that if Trump loses the election in 2020, we will no longer have to put up with Trump.

    The bad news is we will have to put up with one of the idiots on the debate stage tonight.

  153. NYCmike says:

    “Bitter. Sorry, Bloomberg tonight revealed himself to be someone who feels he’s above everyone else.”

    -None of you were paying attention for 12 years when he was Mayor of NYC??

    While it doesn’t quite compare to the honor of being compared to Mitt Romney, being compared now to a billionaire Jew is indeed a thrill. I can tell my parents I made it. I am slightly taller than Mayor Bloomberg though.

    I would have had him a bit better prepared for tonight, but yes, I can relate very much to the smug condescension he was unable to hide for the five socialists or desperate quasi-socialists he had to share a stage with. Yes, I often feel that way about others I see arguing on political blogs, both here and the left-wing one I post at. I am sure we could all shake hands at the end though, right?

    For Bloomberg, the fact is he will still have the money to destroy Sanders on the airwaves once the full fears of electability kick in.

    If the Democrats really get panicked and want to nominate a successful businessman and executive without any fears of NDA or mistreating women, they can maybe turn to Mitt Romney on the 9th ballot in Milwaukee.

    He and Bain Capital have a great record of rescuing failing enterprises.

    Romney is the leader of a party of one, himself.

    Romney will never lead the Republican Party, Trump or no Trump. Mr. I was for abortion when it would get me elected until it wouldn’t. Mr. Romneycare was good, but then it wasn’t. Sorry, this man, just like Trump, has no moral compass other than the one which would best suit him. Republicans see that. He is not the leader of anything, he exposed himself during the hearings.

    To quote a phrase, Romney couldn’t get himself elected dog catcher anymore. His career is, thankfully, finished.

    This coming from someone who worked and supported financially in 2012. He didn’t have the heart to close the deal then, and he has no heart now.

  199. CG says:

    I don’t see how Warren wins back the Bernie people. The only one she can really hurt is Klobcuar, but those people already had electability concerns about her.

    Right now, the main battle is between Buttigieg and Klobuchar, trying to survive, in the hopes that Bloomberg completely flops, and they are the last one standing against Sanders.

    I think Biden will come in third in SC at this point. It will be his best ever showing in a Presidential contest, so he can leave national politics on a high note.

  200. CG says:

    Mitt Romney, like Ronald Reagan, and both George Bushes, was once pro-choice and then had a conversion to Pro-Life. I certainly think he was genuine in that. People who are Pro-Life (unlike jason) should welcome converts.

    Trump also had a conversion apparently on that issue. Why would it be ok for him not for Romney?

    Of course, deep down we all know that Donald Trump will never be close to half the man Mitt Romney is, on Romney’s worse day

  203. mRviTO says:

    Washington Examiner: Bernie Sanders’ Democratic rivals make clear they’re hoping to take him out at convention

    “NBC’s Chuck Todd asked a straightforward question of all six candidates on stage: If at the end of all the primaries none of them receive the an outright majority of the delegates needed to clinch the nomination on the first ballot, should the candidate with the most delegates be the nominee?

    Sanders was the only one on stage who said that he believed the nomination should go to the candidate who wins the most delegates, which signals his increasing level of confidence ahead of another expected win in Nevada that should cement his frontrunner status with Super Tuesday quickly approaching.”

  204. CG says:

    The Buttigieg vs. Klobuchar fights were really something. She totally let him get under her skin. They are fighting for the same sliver of votes.

    She attacks him for wanting to declare the Mexican Cartel a terrorist organization and he attacks her for thinking English should be the official language…

    I missed the Bloomberg vs. Sanders, “you have three houses” fight. I just found it amusing earlier when two old guys were fighting over who had the worse heart.

    Sanders is clearly hiding something but not releasing his medical records. I can say he is the only elderly Jewish person I know of who doesn’t want to go into great detail in talking about all their health issues.

  205. VictrC says:

    CG

    There is always room for people to convert to pro-life, just as there is room in the Republican Party for those who are pro-abortion, though I question their commitment to morality.

    As to Romney’s conversion, I don’t feel it is genuine, I think it is expedient. And whereas I think Trump’s was the same (as was the Bush’s expedient rather than real, Reagan truly believed in life) at least Trump would go out and rally the movement unlike any other before him. You wouldn’t catch Romney speaking to the Right to Life March in DC ever.

    Trump, for all his vitriol, arrogance, pettiness, etc at least he has the uncanny ability to rally people in a way that Romney and Never Trump crowd can not fathom. He makes people feel good, believe in their cause and believe in America (even if we all think its fake, they don’t)

    Americans are tired of being told they are no good. That they are the cause of the world’s problems. That their history is awful, and that they are awful people. At least Trump is making them proud to be American again. And yes, they may be stunts like buzzing the NASCAR race, or speaking at the Right to Life March, or riding in the pace car, but it still makes people feel good about themselves and about America.

    Combine that with a good economy, great judges, great foreign policy, great taxes, great unemployment, and I will take that over Bloomberg or any other of the Dem posers any day.

  206. VictrC says:

    CG. – your last line made me laugh. My stepfather was Jewish from New York, so I know the drill.

    The three houses comment actually backfired on Bloomberg, there was a palpable gasp from the audience. I’m surprised Sanders didn’t reply, well you have 45 houses.

    Regardless, I think Warren did better than expected. I think Biden did Ok though he seemed to get lost in some of his answers, but I dont think he convinced anyone to vote for him. Mayor Pete got some shots in, but showed himself to be petty and inexperienced. Klobuchar and Bloomberg were wounded th most tonight and Sanders won.

  207. CG says:

    It might not have any impact on left-wingers, but I like how Bloomberg said “I am the only one here who has started a business, right…” and looked down the line at all the others, and it was complete crickets.

    Three cheers for Bloomberg for at least trying, slightly, to stand up for capitalism.

    As for all the NDA stuff, Bloomberg should have admitted he used to tell off-color jokes and he feels embarassed badly about that now, but say the other 70 somethings onstage (and Trump) have been even creepier.

  208. CG says:

    As a leader in his Church, long before he got into politics, Romney counseled women into not having abortions.

    I think we all probably would have to admit to ourselves that Trump has likely paid for a few of his own.

    My hunch is ppl are using AI to manipulate this market. There are new studies that show humans can’t distinguish between a human shltposter vs an AI bot (even watching them on video let alone just a chat blog.) Once it becomes difficult to discern whether reality is real in a mostly digital age this makes it hard for humans to compete. Ppl used to have to open accounts, pay fees and commission, then choose stocks and wait for them to fill the order whenever they got around to it. Moving it in and out wasn’t an option on a draw.
    Now with robinhood and some others we get some news or a hot wsb-meme tip- then sell and buy in an instant. They have made pack based investing possible.

    This pack based investing can actually be harnessed by artificial intelligence.

    202. “Mitt can be a Senator from Utah as long as he wants. The recent polling data there indicates that, but not a surprise.”

    Romney’s polling has drop significantly in Utah since his impeachment vote. The irony is that Trump’s popularity is now higher in Utah than Romney’s.

    “The UtahPolicy.com/2News poll from Y2 Analytics finds 36% of Utah voters say they approve of Romney’s job performance, while 49% disapprove. In a previous survey from October of last year, 46% of Utahns approved of how he’s handling his job while 51% disapproved.
    Romney’s net approval has dropped in the ensuing months as well, from a net negative of -5 to -10 now.
    Romney’s drop primarily comes among Republican voters. In October, 40% of “strong” Republicans said they approved of his job performance. Now, just 29% feel that way. His support among moderate Republicans dropped 18 points, 71% in October to 53% now. Even independent voters who lean toward the Republican party have softened their support for Romney from 49% in October to just 37%.”

    https://kutv.com/news/local/romneys-job-approval-from-utah-voters-drops-significantly-during-impeachment

    My guess is 3 1/2 years for Stone who will file for a re-trial.He will be pardoned a day after the November election.
    Flynn’s case will soon be dismissed or he will be immediately pardoned by the President.

  229. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    Bloomberg won. He was like a boxer who, though bloody and puffy, survived the grueling 15 round fight. He also had the best two lines of the night. To wit:(1) telling Bernie Sanders that “only in America can the leading political Socialist have three nice homes and be a millionaire”,and(2) asking,to complete silence, which of his competitors have ever started or owned a business.

    In all candor, the debate participants and topics covered were vomit inducing.

    Trump’s Phoenix rally was more entertaining and substantive.

  230. Tina says:

    Sheeple did you notice how the Connecticut Senator, who was caught violating the Logan Act, defended himself?

    I have made this point many times here.

    I don’t know of anybody, or heard anybody say they know anybody, who voted for Trump in 2016 and are not voting for him 2020.

    Now that might not be enough to win, but Trump’s base is rock solid.

    Didn’t watch the debate. At the urging of my wife, I watched some highlights just now. And dayum, what a beatdown suffered by Bloomberg.

    Big Joe

  242. DW says:

    248 – same here. The only ones who voted Trump in 2016 but won’t in 2020 are Trump voters who have died in the last four years.

    I do know of some who did not four years ago, but will vote Trump in 2020.

    It still may not be enough, and Trump will put Carville’s maxim to the test.

    Translating for Tina, if it weren’t for Trump’s stupid trade wars, manufacturing would be really going gangbusters.

  253. DW says:

    I have been saying all along this is Sanders’ nomination. I am 99% certain he arrives at the convention with the most delegates, but probably short of 50%. So the only question is whether or not it will be taken away from him.

    Bloomberg’s entrance in the race only served to finish off Pony Soldier, Fauxcahontas, Mayor Butt, and Klobber.

    In fact, if I was a moderate Dem given to conspiracy theories, I would say Trump hired Bloomberg to enter the race to ensure Bernie got the nomination.

  257. jason says:

    I…. err… invested in The Bulwark.”

    I am sure the Bul part is true…

  258. jason says:

    Sister Toldjah points to the Never Trumpers as the biggest losers of the debate… she may have a point.

    “But Sanders seeming victory in the aftermath of the debate had to be a major blow to the Never Trump contingent, who have repeatedly tried to insert themselves into the Democratic nominating process by promoting other so-called “moderate” candidates like Joe Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) Buttigieg, and Bloomberg. Last night, Biden survived the debate but didn’t have any stand-out moments at a time when Sanders has lapped him in Nevada polls. Klobuchar and Buttigieg mostly cancelled each other out last night with their back and forth attacks against each other, so they didn’t do themselves any favors, either, in the run-up to the Saturday Nevada caucuses.

    Sanders is the Democratic candidate that Never Trumpers like Jennifer Rubin fear the most. The fact that he emerged from the debate mostly unscathed (outside of Bloomberg’s attacks on his socialism) at a time when he’s surging in both state and national polls spells disaster for the efforts of Never Trumpers.

    In fact, the world’s smallest violin is playing for them right as this very moment. Bless their hearts.”

  259. DW says:

    Matthews is an idiot, and of course he is engaging in extreme hyperbole. The country that gave Nixon all those states in 72, and Reagan all but Minnesota in 1984 no longer exists.

    At least 25% of Americans now want to throw away all we have so we can relive the bread lines of the Soviet Union, where we all pretend to work and the government pretends to pay us and feed us and give us assembly-line health care, and if you speak out against it, you end up jailed or worse.

    Even in the best case scenario for Trump in the general election, where everything goes his way, and the Dem candidate absolutely implodes, there are simply no mathematics that can gave give Trump DC, HI, CA, MA, MD, VT, NY, IL, NJ, WA, RI, or CT.

    NM, OR, DE, CO and VA are all within reach, but only if everything falls into place. And those would only be barely flipped, if at all.

    Back in 1984 Reagan took CO 63/35, DE 60/40, HI 55/44, IL 56/43, MA 51/48, MD 53/47, NY 54/46, OR 56/44, RI 52/48, VT 58/41, WA 56/43, WI 54/45, and noting how much WV has changed, WV only 55/45.

    Those numbers are no longer possible.

  260. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

    My father and I both voted 3rd party in 2016 and we will both be enthusiastically voting Trump in November. I know a few others who will too. I dont see his 2016 support decreasing one hair, no matter who they pick.

  261. Ben says:

    I don’t know why the comparison to 1972 keeps coming up. Mondale (the moderate) lost just as badly in 1984 and Dukakis (tank man and poor death penalty answer and liberal) lost in a landslide too! This ain’t the year for a change candidate! Not that type of election.

  262. jason says:

    DW, I think NJ and CT might be viable for Trump (My theory is anywhere he got over 40% against Hillary gives him a shot against Bloomberg). That is why I think 40 states is viable. Will be fun to see.

  263. jason says:

    The Dems will REALLY have to swallow a turd sandwich to nominate Bloomberg..

    “In another occasion, the lawsuit said, Bloomberg berated a female employee who had trouble finding a nanny. “It’s a f—— baby! .?.?. All you need is some black who doesn’t have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building.”

  264. mRviTO says:

    That’s just an off color joke, jason. Geez.

  265. jason says:

    Bloomberg wants everyone to drop out…

    “If Biden, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar remain in the race despite having no path to appreciably collecting delegates on Super Tuesday (and beyond), they will propel Sanders to a seemingly insurmountable delegate lead by siphoning votes away from [Bloomberg].”

  266. jason says:

    That’s just an off color joke, jason. Geez.”

    It actually sounds like a mixed metaphor off color joke.

    Want to know how the debate went last night? Read supreme Never Trumper Jennifer Rubin’s tweets last night and this morning. Compare with her tweets over the last week. She was all in on Bloomberg’s candidacy as the guy to take out Trump. After last night she has thrown in the towel on Mini Mike. Admitted he was horrible. She’s back in on Biden as the great stop Trump hope. She’s mad at Warren for not attacking Sanders exclusively. She’s furious in fact. Angry that Democrats aren’t uniting around Biden or Mayor Pete. She knows Sanders will get creamed and for the last three months has been imploring Democrats to nominate someone who can best her enemy, Trump. A full frontal attack on Sanders didn’t happen last night and she is beside herself.

    I was a Democrat for 20 years. Voted straight Dem for 20 years since 1996. Voted Hillary in 2016. I promised to give Trump a chance.
    I watched as the Democrats lurched left in 2017 and the Media outright lying in 2017 and had enough. Switched my registration in April 2017 and voted straight Republican in 2018. Where I’m from (NE-02) which is becoming swing-y, there were some weird picks. We had basically a Bernie socialist (Kara Eastman) vs Don Bacon (moderate Military guy) and Bacon won by like 6000 votes. Way too close. Now the Democrats are fighting for control, moderates vs conservatives. Fun to watch.
    Anyway, I’m voting for Trump in 2020. No one from the Democrats I’d every vote for. No one. They’ve gone way to far in economics and social politics I have no choice but to vote for the Party that wants to maximize freedom. Democrats do not.

    Wow, what a Wisconsin poll. That’s literally all he needs to hold the Presidency along with his his states sans PA and MI.

    BTW, does anyone here think that Klobuchar or Mayor Butt or Warren could defeat Trump in a general.Klobuchar almost had a breakdown when challenged by Mayor Butt, I swear she had tears in her eyes.Imagine Trump? Butt, hell never get enough Hispanic and African American vote to win in WI, PA and MI.

    Biden…IM THE GUY!!!!! (Caps intentional). That’s literally all he can say. IM THE GUY WHO….insert OBama era policy.

    Bloomberg. Please. Let Trump run against him. I don’t care how much money he injects into the campaign, last night was probably his high point in a debate, I bet he gets worse. Does his rolling of his eyes remind anyone of Bush and the watch in 92? (And Bloomberg rolled his eyes so many times). He has the personality of stale toast.

  292. VictrC says:

    Ironically I just did a quick 270 to win with WI going to Trump and PA, MI to the Dem. With Maine 2 vote going to Trump that would make it a 270 – 268 win.

    Mini-Mike tries to be one person in his commercials, and then people see him for the little Napoleon character he is in real life.

    “Many pundits thought…..”

    -They try to set narratives more than they think.

    Q polls suggest that WI continues to be the tipping point state. Eyes on AZ though.

    WI seems like it continuing to trend red (similar to OH and IA last cycle).

    If those were the actual results, only Bernie and Biden would be divvying up the 415 pledged delegates.

    A big field of candidates helps The Bern.

    in 2016, trump got 57% of whites and 21% of non-whites

    in gallup today, his approval is 58% among whites and 32% among non-whites

    that’s an 11-point surge in raw support among non-whites

    unprecedented to see shifts that large in a single election cycle

  324. Big Joe says:

    Follow up to #333. Some candidates could grab a few delegates even if they finish below 15% statewide, but those would be negligible.

    Well the “gold standard” PPIC poll has Bernie up by 15-18 in CA…

  326. NYCmike says:

    Makes sense for California Dems to want Bernie……they are so selfish, they want the rest of the country to experience the nightmare that is their once-upon-a-time Golden state.

  327. Tina says:

    Agreed.

    A lot of Democrats who watched the debate last night probably realized — maybe for the first time — that Trump’s skill level is other-worldly. They watched Bloomberg die in a debate trap of the sort Trump escaped with the famous “only Rosie O’Donnell” move. It wasn’t luck.

    Holy bat crap crazy…
    Nearly 20 million watched the ‘Bloomberg Bomb’ last night.

    Trump being positive on gallup for first time.

    Is it just the economy?

    Or has Trump made a substantive change in the news cycle etc and his management of the WH that has somehow changed?

  333. NYCmike says:

    “Vic – Why are you addressing me. I did not say Bloomberg won. Do you think I support any of the Dems?”

    -Was this Bitterlaw?

    I thought it was “Elena” Klobuchar whining again.

    As seen on Instapundit:

    “LARRY TESLER, PIONEER WHO INVENTED ‘CUT, COPY AND PASTE’ FOR COMPUTERS, DIES AT 74. Larry Tesler, pioneer who invented ‘cut, copy and paste’ for computers, dies at 74.

  335. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is how California will choose its 416 “pledged” delegates.

    271 delegates will be determined by the primary voters in each of California’s 53 congressional districts. Each district will have between 4-7 delegates that will be distributed proportionally. To receive delegates, a candidate must receive at least 15% of the vote in the congressional district.

    90 delegates will be determined by the statewide primary vote, and be distributed proportionally. To receive delegates a candidate must obtain at least 15% of the statewide vote. 54 of these delegates will be selected from categories of elective officials and political leaders who are pledged to a particular candidate.

  336. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    343. “Trump being positive on gallup for first time. Is it just the economy? Or has Trump made a substantive change in the news cycle etc and his management of the WH that has somehow changed?”

    Its none of the above. Trump is the default choice now because the Democrats are unraveling and appear to have gone bonkers.

  337. Phil says:

    I maintain that if Bernie can garner a double digit plurality of the California state vote (say win by 10 or 12 pts) regardless of how it is distributed the sheer math will practically guarantee him the most delegates when he gets to the convention.

    At that point the Democratic establishment will have to take the nomination from him and hand it to someone else. It will be bloody and it will fatal for Democratic prospects in November. In other words, die with Sanders leading the ticket or die by denying him the nomination. Pick your poison.

  338. Phil says:

    Late afternoon tweet from our gal Jenny Rubin. She is still furious at Warren for attacking Bloomberg last night and not going after Bernie, Rubin is desperate to see Democrats dump Bernie and nominate someone she thinks will actually win. Such is her red hot hatred for Trump. She can’t understand why Democrats don’t snap out of it and listen to her.

    Well, Jenny, maybe it is because they don’t give a crap what you Never Trumpers think. Idiots like you and your hero Romney are useful but only to an extent. You are nothing but a useful idiot to them.

  339. Phil says:

    ….and Bill Kristol’s take on the debate last night? Well, according to Kristol in today’s Bulwark article he isn’t happy. Still holding out hope of a Bloomberg resurgence on Super Tuesday, but admits Bloomberg was awful. His bottom line is his “hope” that non Bernie Democrats overlook Bloomberg’s bombing last night and still unite behind Mini Mike against Bernie out of a desire to save America from Trump.

    Bill, like Jenny Rubin, just can’t understand why Democrats don’t fall into line like Never Trumpers want them to.

  340. VictrC says:

    Phil, the question is why do they think Bloomberg is the savior for the Dems? Do they think Dems on the left are go into get excited to vote for him? Do they think Republicans are going to abandon Trump to vote for Bloomberg.

    The guy showed himself to be who he really is, “Little Napoleon.”

    He literally looked as if he had no use for the others on the stage, he has contempt for the average person not living in NYC or LA, he doesn’t play with minorities and he has no charisma or personality.

    Like him or hate him Clinton had a certain aura. Like him or hate him, Trump motivates his base (which is bigger than Bernies base).

    How is Bloomberg going to beat him. Despite his Billions Trump will have a lot of money to run ads too
