    Sanders Leads/Buttigieg Surging in NH

    In the end Pete Buttigieg may not actually win in Iowa as originally thought, but the thought that he might have won has seemingly helped him into a solid second place in New Hampshire in the latest tracking polls from Emerson College and Suffolk University.

    PRESIDENT – NEW HAMPSHIRE – DEM PRIMARY (Suffolk)
    Sanders 25%
    Buttigieg 19%
    Biden 12%
    Warren 11%
    Klobuchar 6%
    Gabbard 5%
    Steyer 4%
    Yang 2%

    PRESIDENT – NEW HAMPSHIRE – DEM PRIMARY (Emerson)
    Sanders 31%
    Buttigieg 21%
    Biden 12%
    Warren 12%
    Klobuchar 11%
    Gabbard 5%
    Yang 5%
    Steyer 1%

    The Emerson poll was done February 3-5 and the Suffolk poll was done February 4-5, both among 500 likely primary voters.

      Does 4th place for Warren here knock her out? I don’t know which state she can point to and say, “I can win xyz”.

    3. PresidentPaul! says:

      DNC wants recanvass of Iowa lol.

      3 weeks after they have already decided the nominee, Bernie will finally find out he won Iowa so he can give his victory speech.

    4. JulStol says:

      Buttigieg vs Sanders vs Bloomberg is the Democrats Kobayashi Maru.

      Buttigieg can’t win (won’t get the numbers he needs with blacks and hispanics and will not get the WWC to abandon Trump.

      Sanders can’t win (weaker than average with black and hispanic voters, too old, will send suburban Romney Republicans fleeing to Trump. They will not tax themselves out of their McMansions)

      Bloomberg can’t win (same problems as Buttigieg but for completely different reasons).

      This is absolutely beautiful. Iowa made President Trump’s re-election fait accompli.

    6. Phil says:

      I think as of right now we are looking at a late spring three way race of Bernie, Bloomberg, and Buttigieg. I don’t see Biden hanging in there….nor is Warren going to last.

    7. mRviTO says:

      Now that it looks like Bernie might win they want to recanvass, huh?

      That’s the only thing that changed since last night.

      “This is absolutely beautiful. Iowa made President Trump’s re-election fait accompli.”

      -Confidence is good.

      Acting like Wes isn’t.

      Don’t ever go full-Wesley!

    9. Phil says:

      Yep, keep counting until you get the desired results.

      They expect Bernie to just lay down for all this.

    10. Wes says:

      Now, Mikey, I know you’re an idiot. You make that ridiculously apparent in every post. What were you saying about NO posters saying Trump would definitely win re-election?

    11. jason says:

      I agree with this. Romney shouldn’t be expelled from the Party. He should be vilified for being a scumbag media whore.

      Both can be true.

      “We have often heard Republicans claim that impeaching Trump is about overturning the 2016 election. But if Trump’s supporters truly believe that, how can they justify their new demand that Romney be expelled from the GOP? Surely that repudiation of the will of Utah voters would be just the same as that which they say Democrats are trying to do to Trump?

      There’s a broader concern here: the nature of the GOP as a party. The Grand Old Party is not the Trump Old Party. It was formed 92 years before Trump was even born. To, therefore, assume that disloyalty to Trump is cause for party expulsion, as the #ExpelMitt movement necessarily assumes, is to forget history and heritage. More than that, it is to subjugate the party to the whims of one man and his family. That is a presumption at once autocratic and absurdly un-American.

      By all means, passionately oppose Romney’s vote. By all means, don’t invite him to the Conservative Political Action Conference. By all means, organize a primary challenge against him in 2024. By all means, don’t vote for him ever again.

      But don’t expel him from the party. He has every right to be a member.”

    12. Wes says:

      I agree with Jason.

      Romney committed a foolhardy, egregious act. Expelling him from the party for it is not the way to handle things. Rather, the GOP should vilify him and miss no chance to point out his sanctimonious, self-serving apostasy at every turn.

    13. jason says:

      NYC is at war with himself again?

      jason:

      Ohhh, puhhhleeze no, don’t move to PA.

      I am sure the first thing NYC would do is to apply the Mikey Maneuver to Pat Toomey.”

      NYC:

      “I can’t imagine a state where “limited government Republicans” think it is a good idea to limit the amount of locations to buy alcohol!”

      jason:

      Translation: let’s Mikey Maneuver the state because the chances of eliminating state owned liquor stores will be so much better with liberal Democrats.

      NYC:

      Someone tell jason that a United States Senator usually doesn’t get involved with local politics”

      Summary:

      I bring up Toomey, he brings up liquor stores, I respond on liquor stores, he tells me Toomey is not involved in liquor stores.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

      wes is right, the stupidity is just astounding.

    14. SweatyToothedMadman says:

      I concur with Jason and Wes. Romney’s political career is that of a rank opportunist.

      But the GOP still needs him to keep Senate majority, confirmations, etc.

      Sorry meant to say 30000!

      LOL

      Must have attended the Kommie Kory School of Math.

    19. Phil says:

      Agree about not kicking Romney out of the party. His sanctimonious speech on the senate floor turns my stomach, however. Essentially telling the rest of the Republican Senate he’s somehow morally superior and that he’s the only one measuring up to standards of character.

      The speech read like one of Corey’s posts on this site.

    20. jason says:

      Bonchie at Redstate has Romney figured out perfectly:

      “This guy is just insufferable. This was a political process and Romney is presenting it as a religious rite of passage…

      ..But the one thing that will get his religious convictions going is the orange man or something. Come on. Anyone that buys this is a total sucker. Romney loves how this is playing out. He loves the attention, he loves the media praise, and he loves being the finger wagger at his own party. That’s what this was always about.

      In the end, I’m less concerned with Romney’s actual vote (it’s one vote, who cares?) than the immense amount of gaslighting going on about Romney’s motives. I’d have more respect for the guy and his defenders if they just admitted the obvious.”

    21. VictrC says:

      Agree wholeheartedly on not kicking out or recalling Romney. The people of Utah voted, for a narcissistic, jealous scumbag, but they voted for him.

      There is also room in the party for him. I love how he touted voting 80% with the President as if it was something to be proud of. Romney votes with Trump as an expected percentage of his victory on the state at a rate less than Feinstein and Cardin!!!! As well, Sinema and Manchin voted with Trump 54% of the time, so not that much different than Romney.

      Regardless, he should stay in the party, he should just never be trusted again in a situation that is vital to the party and the interests of the american people

    22. jason says:

      “He loves the attention, he loves the media praise, and he loves being the finger wagger at his own party. That’s what this was always about.”

      I have been saying this since Romney wrote the despicable self serving trash talking WaPo Op-Ed.

    23. NYCmike says:

      Ann Coulter, and many other voters, said that about Romney a longggggggg time ago……….yet the “smart” people here mostly ridiculed them for having such an opinion.

    24. jason says:

      Essentially telling the rest of the Republican Senate he’s somehow morally superior and that he’s the only one measuring up to standards of character.”

      Yep, the 195 House Rs (and 2 Dems) and the 52 R Senators who saw through this farce are all wrong.

      But he, and his MSM masters and Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, THEY are right.

    25. NYCmike says:

      Primary him at the first opportunity. Until then, keep him out of any leadership positions.

    26. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      If a candidate does not get at least 15% of the vote in a congressional district in New Hampshire, they are considered not “viable” and will not get delegates. Believe the 15% rule also applies to delegates awarded state-wide.

    27. Wes says:

      We already know you’re an idiot, Mikey. You needn’t remind us in every post.

      Ann Coulter endorsed Romney early in the 2012 primaries.

      Most people on here who supported Romney did so because he was the least likely candidate to damage GOP chances downballot. Most of us also expected him to lose to Obama.

      Only Corey has had some kind of weird fixation on Romney over the past decade or so. We all knew he was an out-of-touch elitist who would struggle to connect with voters. We supported him strategically against his completely unelectable primary opponents.

      All that said, Romney did the best anyone could have expected against Obama in 2012:

      He kept the race relatively close and set up Republicans for the 2014 and 2016 elections.

      For that he should be commended. It makes him no less of a self-seeking ass who cast an unforgivable vote and earned all the philippics hurled his way in the aftermath.

    28. CG says:

      “The speech read like one of Corey’s posts on this site.”

      You just made my freakin’ year!!!

    29. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Romney has been a solid Republican vote in the Senate, and likely will remain so. Everyone knows he does not like Trump; but the impeachment fiasco is now over and I think he will return to being a solid Republican vote. Give it a rest.

      Besides it is important to have someone who is “profoundly religious” among a bunch of infidels.

    30. John says:

      29
      That’s exactly what Mitch McConnell said on Hannity’s show last night…there are several big votes coming up with the Senate and he is counting on Romney’s vote…

    31. Scooterboy says:

      CNN Headline.: “ Trump vindicative & vulgar in his impeachment celebration speech”

      I didn’t see the speech. What was vulgar about it?

    32. John says:

      Wow. Just watched Trump’s ‘victory lap’ speech/bitch-a-thon.
      He completely had this coming enduring the crap for three years now and he deserved his chance to air it out.

    33. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      20. “This was a political process and Romney is presenting it as a religious rite of passage…”

      It was a strange speech.

      Utah is a vibrant state with the youngest population in the country. It also has a vibrant economy, and heavy into tech. A new generation of young Republican office holders is coming. Romney deserves admiration for many of the things he did in the past, including saving the SLC Olympics; but he is beyond his expiration date.

      He may have ran for the Senate because he thought Trump would crash and burn politically, and he could be a possible replacement. It is possible it is one reason he made the speech he did. From the tone of his Washington Post editorial, he seemed to be competing with Trump. I don’t think he will run for re-election.

    34. GF says:

      31-Scooter, he used “BS” in his remarks, but spoke it out in full.

    35. jason says:

      Yeah, the Dems can say “impeach the m’fer”, but Trump can’t say BS.

      CNN might try to milk a few town halls with the socialists, but now that the impeachment farce is over they are going to be even less relevant.

    36. NYCmike says:

      https://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/143697-coulter-nominate-christie-because-romney-will-lose

      -Wes, if I am stupid, you ain’t smart.

      Coulter only endorsed Romney after the primary, because she knew the bigger problem was Obama.

      Stop making it so easy to show how silly your arguments are.

    37. Phil says:

      LOL.

      Forgot about the Impeach the MF quote. Yeah, good thing CNN is around to protect us from Trump’s vulgarity.

      CNN becomes a bigger joke by the day. What’s so funny is they are so wrapped up in their bubble that they are oblivious to what they have become. You’d have thought that their ratings would have been a big red flag for them, but they just cluelessly keep marching merrily on – right off a cliff.

    39. Bitterlaw says:

      Did I miss anything since I posted on Tuesday?

      I wish Romney had voted with the rest of the GOP Senators. He did not. I can live it. I listened to his speech. He seemed genuine in his given reasons. As somebody who hated the choices for President in 2016, I can relate.

    40. jason says:

      SDC, Romney is a sad and pathetic figure. He got what he wanted, lots of attention from the MSM, and even from us here.

      Really, really, despicable people in the MSM and in the Dem party are out there praising him. People who truly despise him and everything he could possibly stand for, especially the religion he claims motivates him. Yet he basks in the glory of their praise as if he believes they really admire him. They don’t. They think he is a useful idiot to be discarded like a used diaper at the first opportunity.

      The Never Trumpers are full of love for him, I am surprised Jennifer Rubin has not announced she is glad she was alive for his speech yet.

      But in the end, he will have no friends on either side. The people who he should want to be his friends, his fellow Republicans and conservatives, will shun him. The people he is seeking adulation from, actually hate his guts and always will.

      He knew both charges were garbage. He accepted one of them and not the other. A weak, weak, weak man.

    41. DW says:

      There is the old proverb, “Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan”

      At the SOTU speech, there was a sea of ‘fathers’ on one side of the hall, cheering the speaker throughout the speech, while behind him sat a bitter, spiteful orphan left to mumble to herself.

      I thought he oozed insincerity.

      “Genuine” would be the last word I would use. Fake. Self-serving. Hollow. Feigned. Dissimulating.

      Those are the words I would use.

      Will have to disagree with my fellow A-hole on “genuine”.

      Before some a-hole says that I am saying that scumbag Romney cares about HHR, I mean on social media in general.

    49. jason says:

      “CNN reported on Tuesday that among the people who watched President Trump’s State of the Union address, the vast majority (76 percent) had a “positive” or “very positive reaction.”

      The network’s instant poll showed that 59 percent of speech watchers had a “very positive” reaction, along with 17 percent who reported a “somewhat positive” reaction. Only 23 percent said they had a “negative reaction.”

      Of course, their analyst then tried to water this down by saying probably the viewership was “favorable to Trump”.

      “There were tears in my eyes, and there are again as I hear him say those words, but what I thought is I would really like my four children to be like that,” he said on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront…

    59. Phil says:

      Look, as to Biden, he was the leader for all these months for one reason and one reason only. He was viewed as the candidate who was perceived to be able to get enough blue collar support to win back the crucial midwestern states of Pa, Michigan and Wisconsin. He did the best in the head to heads vs Trump. He could win.

      After watching him on the campaign stump and especially in Iowa Democrats’ perception of him as the strongest candidate has been blown up. Without that perception as the strongest GE candidate he is not in the least attractive.

    60. Phil says:

      Pocahontas quitting would be a huge boost to Buttigieg.

    61. Tina says:

    62. Phil says:

    63. jan says:

      Went out to b’fast with a friend this morning. She surprised me by saying her husband – who doesn’t like Trump – was favorably impressed by his SOTU speech. I think trump made some positive inroads last Tuesday.

      Also, I’m taking back my comment about wishing I hadn’t voted for Romney. Like Jason wisely inferred, the alternative to him was much worse. However, I continue to disrespect him for his impeachment decision. As a private equity guy who disassembled businesses, or someone who was pro choice or pro life, depending on which side was more beneficial for him to support in order to be elected, I find him searching his conscience for Godly direction disingenuous, at best.

    64. VictrC says:

      The irony in Biden’s standing can not be overlooked.

      Looking at the polls he could conceivably fall to fifth in NH after a weak 4th place finish in Iowa. A 4th followed by a 5th is not someone who can win the Presidency.

      One of the major contributors to his fall is, to go along with his poor stump performances, impeachment. He was exposed during impeachment. Many who didn’t know the underhanded and shady dealings of his family finally were exposed to it, and it hurt him. Badly.

      Wouldn’t it be even more ironic if the impeachment that was meant to take down Trump, took down Biden…which is what Trump allegedly wanted from Ukraine anyway.

      Last point. Those who thought Biden might actually be the weakest candidate instead of the strongest were actually proven right. Trump would have defeated him in November. Can anyone imagine him campaigning 18 hours a day for 90 straight days in the Fall?

    65. Paul says:

      60: I’m worried that Warren’s voters might go to Bernie. Keeping the far left divided, would hopefully help a moderate to take the lead.

      62: I agree. Bloomberg posts and articles have been all over the place this week. I kind of like Bloomberg. But, it does feel like he’s the vulture circling the scene of carnage in Iowa.

    66. jason says:

      Finally, but too late….

      “Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Thursday declared victory in the Iowa caucus before the final results were published, saying the media are wrong to treat Pete Buttigieg as the winner.

      “I think it is fair to say that we won the caucus,” the presidential candidate said, claiming a “very significant victory” after being projected to win the popular vote of Monday night’s caucus.

    67. jason says:

      I don’t want Bloomberg. I think he could be the most dangerous to Trump (I used to think it was Biden).

      And he is no moderate.

      Expert thinks there are actually 50,000 new coronavirus cases a day

      https://metro.co.uk/2020/02/06/expert-thinks-actually-50000-new-coronavirus-cases-day-12194129

      An infectious disease expert says that the true scale of the coronavirus isn’t being reported by Chinese officials and claims that around 50,000 new cases are emerging in the country daily. Professor Neil Ferguson, director of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, says that the number of cases is ‘going up all the time’. To put things into context, he said that only 10% of all infections in China are being detected at the current time. He added that the rate of detection was better overseas, but even then only a quarter of infections were being discovered.

      “It was politically driven, it was driven by people who are not looking for the truth, they hate Trump, they were going to impeach him the day he got elected and if you can’t see through this, your religion is clouding your thinking here,” added Graham, who also acknowledged that he has “always liked” Romney.

      80. Meanwhile, for those who though Trump was pulling out of Syria. Guess again

      “Last week, Amb. James Jeffrey, US Special Representative for Syria Engagement and Special Envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, speaking to reporters, confirmed that Washington is not “planning any withdrawal of US troops from Syria in the near future.”
      “Their mission is ultimately the enduring defeat of ISIS, and that,” he said, “will still take some time.”
      * * * *
      In fact, the SDF official said that the US military presence in the northeast of Syria, in some respects, is now stronger and more muscular than in the past.
      “Heavy military equipment has been deployed to the region, and it is not only the air force,” he stated. “There are important bases in Deir ez-Zor, Hasakah, Qamishlo and Derik.””

      Trump did maybe slightly better than Romney but not really. Hillary underperformed Obama by 5 million votes.

      These are just base elections. There is almost no such thing as a swing voter other than just alienated certain portions of your base like Bernie supporters or Ron Paul supporters or some other part.

    111. mRviTO says:

      So, to summarize, the Dems sat on the numbers they said they had all day, without saying why, and released them just in time for Pete to walk up to the town hall and be told he won at the town hall in front of viewers…

      despite errors that could change the margin of 0.1% SDEs and a clear popular vote victory for Sanders.

      As for Bloomberg himself..

      “New Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is well-known for his advocacy of abortion rights, and a new report says he often opens his wallet for pro-choice causes.

      Bloomberg’s nonprofit, the Bloomberg Family Foundation, donated $13,962,000 to Planned Parenthood Federation of America between 2014-2017, according to research by Newsbusters.

      Now let’s see anybody deny Romney is a media whore.

      “As the junior senator from Utah, on Wednesday, Romney voted to convict and remove President Trump from office, becoming the first senator in U.S. history to vote to remove a president of his own party. To hear some mainstream journalists tell the story, Romney’s years of opportunism just melted away, replaced by a profile in courage.

      “A profile in courage,” declared the Washington Post.

      “A profile in courage,” declared the Atlantic.

      “A profile in courage,” declared CNN.

      Romney meticulously prepared the media rollout of his new profile in courage. Before he announced his intention to vote against Trump, he arranged for interviews with the New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic, and Fox News — all embargoed until he made his decision public on the Senate floor.

      “Romney’s media plan around this is really a wonder to behold,” noted BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith.

      One of those pre-interviews was with the New York Times’s podcast The Daily. Romney conceded the charge of political opportunism in the past. “My guess is that I was influenced in some cases by political benefit,” he said, “and I regret that.”

      Hi Marv, Thanks for the use of the jet as always.

      At Paladin Polling, we strive to save money, and as everyone knows how costly it is, we trimmed our Purple State Initiative down to just the remaining viable Democratic Party candidates. Biden has no path forward. Sanders is strong, and for now, so is Buttigieg. Bloomberg, due to his money is still a wildcard for now, but may be dropped soon if he fails to gain traction. Warren is going nowhere so she was dropped too.

      182, Today’s Emerson and Suffolk tracking polls in New Hampshire shows Biden has fallen to 4th in the primary, with only 11%. His campaign is reportedly out of money, and he is pulling adds out of South Carolina to make what may be his last stand in Nevada. The only question is will Biden or Warren be the 1st to withdraw their candidacy.

    186. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Should note Trump’s polling today:

      Hill/Harris 49% Approval 51% Disapproval
      Rasmussen 49% Approval 49% Disapproval

      These are two of his most favorable polling firms; but in others, such as Gallup, he has risen as well.

      Agree with those who say this might have been Trump’s best week — impeachment was a horrible blunder by the Democrats, which may ironically have helped destroy Biden; and add the Iowa fiasco to it.

      Napoleon never said this, nor has it ever been attributed to him: “It was worse than a defeat, it was a blunder.”

      It was Talleyrand, the French foreign minister, who supposedly said that ABOUT his boss, Napoleon, concerning the assassination of Bonaparte’s political opponent the Count d”Enghien.

      Going from memory, what Talleyrand is supposed to have said was, “It was worse than a CRIME. It was a blunder.”

    207. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      215. “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% now.”

    208. janz says:

      The optics of not only Romney’s vote, but also revelations of his pre-vote actions – a slew of interviews and letters – just make him look worse and worse.

      Messy, Romney’s vote didn’t change the conviction outcome of the vote. What it did impact was the Dems ability to crow it was a “bipartisan” impeachment, which only succeeded to taint Trump, and give Romney the ability to separate himself out, morally, from the rest of the R senators which also subtly tainted them too. Nothing was gained by Romney’s action, and, IMO, he put unnecessary shade over the whole event.

    223. Bitterlaw says:

      I see it another way, Janz. Romney showed that it was the Democrats who were the partisan hacks with 100% voting in lockstep.

To me Romney’s rogue vote was purely a self serving sanctimonious one.

    228. janz says:

      Sondland, who has served as US ambassador to the European Union, announced his dismissal Friday evening in the following statement:
      “I was advised today that the President intends to recall me effective immediately as United States Ambassador to the European Union.
      “I am grateful to President Trump for having given me the opportunity to serve, to Secretary Pompeo for his consistent support, and to the exceptional and dedicated professionals at the U.S. Mission to the European Union. I am proud of our accomplishments. Our work here has been the highlight of my career.”

      Bernie is Bernie. He hates peoole who’ve succeeded.

      Biden has disappeared completely. When he talks he sounds as if he’s not 78. He sounds 90. Poor guy. He’s actually a decent man.

      Any if these are going to have difficult times in November. I’m beginning to think Bloomberg will get the nomination which will be interesting. He’ll draw in Never trumpers but how will he do with with blacks and Hispanics. Not well I think.

      After the debate all the candidates hugged and shook hands except Klobuchar who took off without saying anything to anyone.

      I didn’t see the earlier part so maybe someone attacked her.

      “In case you missed it, majority doesn’t always rule in this country,” Tur whined in the 2:00 p.m. ET hour. Relying on a Washington Post article, she then explained her declaration: “Forty-eight senators voted to remove the President from office. Fifty-two voted to acquit. But the 48 actually represent 12 million more voters than the senators who decided to keep Donald Trump in the White House.”

      This sounds Ohio Kim, who said R votes from “big counties in Ohio like Cuyahoga” shouldn’t count in the primaries because they were “liberal counties” and contrary to the R vote in “small conservative counties”.

      Did she forget Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer attend and address?

      “Tonight, Elizabeth Warren nodded along and smiled as a questioner slandered AIPAC as “an unholy alliance” of “Islamophobes,” “anti-semites, and white nationalists” that perpetuates “bigotry”

      Without blinking, Warren then agreed to boycott next year’s AIPAC conference”

    282. jason says:

      Btw, Scooter, Kim’s lawyers have subpoenaed the video from the A-hole kitchen cameras, but Bitter is confident it will show you didn’t ask Kim for more than hot chocolate. Either that or he has confidence in the people who edited the video.

      word is that DNC is going all in on Mayor Pete. They know Biden is sinking and can’t handle the rigors of a campaign (fully in evidence last night as he faded badly) and are terrified of Bernie, hence the loaded question of can a socialist win.

      Klobuchar is auditioning for VP, no way she gets top of the ticket.

      Expect everyone to attack Bloomberg as trying to buy the election once Sanders and Warren are eliminated, leaving either Mayor Pete, or someone inserted at the convention. Problem is both are going to have problem with minorities in a big way.

      Supposedly the WH is be snubbed by most network’s Sunday shows. In this way they can subdue too many kudos showing good news from the previous week. Amazing how much the news organization’s POV, and which party most align themselves to, plays into the game of public perception.

    293. Scooterboy says:

      James Woods-“just for giggles, imagine this. The Iowa caucuses were not a snafu, but an engineered cluster muck to keep the Democratic field wide open. The impeachment scam was a way to air Biden’s corruption. The chaos leads to a brokered convention. Guess which drunken hag saves the day?”

    298. jason says:

      Dang, if Mayor Butt is the nominee, Trump can save that money and just keep running that ad.

    299. Waingro says:

      #300, my hope is Mayor Pete wins NH. Bernie ekes out NV. And Biden wins convincingly in SC. Absolute chaos after that will ensue.

    300. Scooterboy says:

      Devastating ad.

      But with Mayor Butt rising, doesn’t attacking him only help Sanders more?

      I thought that was exactly the opposite of what the establishment Dems want to happen.

      I don’t think people are gonna leave Mayor Butt and run to Biden.

    301. Tgca says:

      It is silly to think a brokered convention will allow Hillary to step in and be nominated. Bernie’s significant base would revolt and AOC and her chick click would go full assault on the Dem nominee since they support Bernie. The outcome would be disastrous and ironically Hillary would be labeled with stealing the nomination and not the people’s choice. The Dem party would be torn apart and Dem youth would stay home or vote 3rd party in spite. Bernie folks will not let him be denied a 2nd time by insider deals.

    302. dblaikie says:

      I was just wondering if my friend Wes has changed his opinion about Trump’s chances in the election? Just wondering.

    303. Phil says:

      They PARTICULARLY won’t allow Bernie to be denied by HILLARY again.

      In short, Bernie’s people would go nuts.

      The revelation of the video surveillance system at the A-hole Clubhouse has caused a lot of rumors about the contents of the videos. I can assure that some of those rumors are completely untrue. The rest are open to interpretation.

      Probably one of the best campaign adds I have seen. I don’t understand why the Biden campaign does not focus on its media campaign, and minimized Biden’s speaking engagements — just have Biden do meet and greets and shake hands with people.

      the point of the school is that now the girl can go to the CHRISTIAN school if she wants.

      the charter school she is in is free (to her)

      but now she can go to the private school

      which is “school choice”.

      i disagree with school choice, and we can discuss that, but trump did not mean she now could go to a charter school, he meant the private school

      4 day surge has begun.

    314. Phil says:

      Her only shot is maybe being selected as VP and it’s her only realistic goal now. Coming in 5th last week in a neighbor midwestern State finished any long shot dreams she had of getting the nomination. Looking at a ceiling of 4th in NH. She is on track to finish down the list in SC and Nevada as well. Super Tuesday Bloomberg is on the ballot pushing her even further down the pecking order.

    315. Skippy says:

      Klobmentum will be finishing 3rd in NH. She now finally has the oxygen she needs to compete all the way through Super Tuesday and eventually become the compromise candidate at the contested convention in Milwaukee.

      It’s happening.
