Stunningly damning piece with some data about #Biden even I was unaware of. Marcotte makes some critical points here about Biden and his birth control history.
1/
It's not just one gaffe: Joe Biden can't be counted on to fight for reproductive rights salon.com/2019/06/14/its…
The most crucial point in Marcotte's exegesis is that #Biden has always stood up for right wing Catholics and evangelicals over women on repro rights and she outlines specific instances including as VP that are quite disturbing.
2/
And it IS telling that the small percentage of pro-#Biden poll numbers among women are all post-menopausal age. Which is cringeworthy when you think about it. Choice has to be protected for all women and girls. So as Marcotte notes, the nominee must be all in for women.

Well as someone with #cancer, I must say, this sounds great. But didn't Obama put #Biden in charge of curing cancer in a "moonshot" in 2015? How did that go? Because we never heard a word about it.

Biden: If I'm elected, we're going to cure cancer cnn.com/videos/politic…
So first #Biden tells us that when he's elected all the Republicans are going to have an epiphany because Trump is a #GOP anomaly (he is not), and now he's going to cure #cancer.

Amazing what plummeting poll numbers will do for a campaign.
As someone who is currently very sick who hasn't been allowed to eat food for several days, and has been too sick to even be on Twitter in days, I'm just going to say that if #cancer were that easy to cure, 17M Americans, myself included, wouldn't have it.

#Biden has always been a disastrous candidate for women and thus far is performing badly as ever.
Biden's rollout in majority black Philly was small, majority suburban and male.
Biden has zero policy, but much baggage.
Biden is NOT our future.
The future is female.
I know no one who is pro-Biden.
Not my MIL who rolls her eyes over Biden but likes Warren nor a single other family member, friend, colleague or neighbor, whether boomer, gen x or millennial.
Polling has been limited and 67% say they are still looking while Biden's numbers drop.
This long, well-researched piece on Biden by @rtraister is the story of Biden & women. It clarifies why he's not the choice for an electorate that has moved left & younger. The excitement is for the women & younger men. Debates will shift the narrative.

#Biden slumps, #Buttigieg soars, tied with #Sanders and #Warren, #Harris next in benchmark #Iowa poll thehill.com/homenews/campa…
Critical point here is that the MSM is claiming that #Sanders "came within a handful of votes" of #HillaryClinton, when he lost in a landslide of 4M votes, 1k pledged delegates (not SDs) and a dozen states.
2/
This false narrative harms #Sanders--it's meant to highlight how badly he's doing in 2020 and prop up #Biden. But Sanders is actually doing better than in 2016. There are just more players. And Biden is being replaced by a younger centrist, #Buttigieg.

Is #Biden even still running? Didn't show in California. Where is he?

Response to #Biden skipping the California Dems is scathing.

Biden's "refusal to show up only reinforces the idea that he’s an elitist and he is more interested in collecting big checks in CA than being in genuine touch with grassroots activists."

#Buttigieg and #Warren took Biden on.
Buttigieg said that "the riskiest thing we could do is try to play it safe.... In these times, Democrats can no more promise to take us back to the 2000s or 1990s than conservatives can take us back to the 1950s.”

usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
#Warren: “Some Democrats in Washington believe the only changes we can get are tweaks & nudges.If they dream at all, they dream small.Some say if we’d all just calm down, Republicans will come to their senses. Our country is in a time of crisis. The time for small ideas is over.”

#Warren, #Harris and #Castro had previously called for #impeachment weeks ago.

More Democrats Are Calling For Impeachment After #Mueller Said He Could Not Clear Trump buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
A week ago both #Beto and #Buttigieg had joined the impeachment calls.Today #Booker, #Gillibrand and others added their voices for impeachment and #Sanders said he would support whatever Pelosi chooses to do, but said it seems time to examine the issue.
The outlier among the frontrunners is #Biden, who took a wait-and-see attitude. In his
statement, #Mueller declaratively punted the ball to Congress.

Dems in March when #Bernie was frontrunner: "We have to accede to his voters' every whim."

Dems in May now #Biden is frontrunner:"Screw everyone who doesn't want Biden."

Dems in June after both are destroyed in debates: "#Harris & #Warren can draw young voters AND beat Trump."
Just saying that in January 2017 I wrote that barring another #Hillary run, the best ticket was #Harris/#Gillibrand or Gillibrand/Harris. From a policy POV, still true, but Harris/,#Warren or Warren/Harris works just as well. Each would obliterate Trump and energize voters.
Make #Gillibrand Sec of Defense (it used to be a civilian post), Booker Sec of Ed, Inslee Sec of Interior, have Buttigieg head a new post for #LGBTQ issues, bring Castro back for HUD, make Williamson the chaplain. Biden can be SoS. Klobuchar as AG.

It's a great Cabinet.

So we seem to have stopped discussing electability when #Bernie started slipping below #Warren and #Harris's favorables topped #Biden's.
Huh.
Maybe women ARE the ticket for 2020.
#Campaign2020
A month from now when the main debate stage is Biden, Bernie, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Beto, Klobuchar, Booker, Inslee, Castro and maybe Yang & Williamson, there will be more shifts in the polls.
One issue that will be raised is age.
No one will need to say it--we'll see it.

Calling Pennsylvania "#Biden's home state" as an excuse for why his base of operations isn't Delaware, where he was senator for THREE DECADES, ignores that he's trying to deflect from what Delaware stands for and what he did there when #Warren is going to hammer him on it.
#Biden never lived in #Philadelphia, ever.
He was born in Scranton, a white town upstate that is diametrically oppositional from Philadelphia which is majority black and the poorest big city in America.
Biden moved to Delaware from Scranton, PA when he was TEN.
It's fine to decide to distance yourself from the place--DELAWARE, not PA-- you lived for SIXTY SIX YEARS & where you grew up, got married, raised your kids & grandkids. But don't pretend it's because you are FROM Philadelphia when you just want our votes & your state is tiny.

My poll to address the fake poll on Monday that gave #Biden a 32pt lead but then turned that just mean 180 people has closed. The poll was for 50 and under.

Here are the results:
Harris 39%
Buttigieg 38%
Warren 32%
Castro 23%
Klobuchar 21%
Beto 18%
Bernie 16%
Biden 13%
1/
The poll is still up so you can see the results.
Just under 24k people voted.
There were several hundred write-ins, nearly half of which were @AndrewYang. Also getting write-ins: Inslee, Tulsi, Swalwell, Williamson, Gillibrand, Booker.
It was a good poll.
Thank you so much.
2/
The function was to point out that people 50 and under who mostly do not have cell phones are not being repped in these national polls. And also that those small samplings of 400 or 50 people are not representative.

What's #Biden's policy?
At the rallies he has given thus far it has been "my buddy Barack."
NPR ran a feed this morning, and that was it.
Today #Harris is unveiling education, #Buttigieg prison reform and
#Gillibrand got the Secretary of Defense to address sexual assault.
There is plenty of time to choose a candidate from among the 24 running.
If you don't have a landline, no one is polling you. That doesn't mean your choice is invalid. It means pollsters don't know what year it is.
In my informal polling, only one in every 30 people has a landline.
All but one respondent was over 50.
None was for Biden.
So there's your poll.

New evidence suggests #Ukraine played a key role in creating Trump-#RussianCollusion narrative at the behest of @BarackObama officials
theepochtimes.com/joe-biden-obam…
As #Ukraine underwent dramatic changes in 2014, then-VP @JoeBiden played a critical role in the @BarackObama admin’s involvement in the revolution that ousted #Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Following the revolution, Biden would use his influence to help force the…
… creation of the troubled National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU). Notably, during the 2016 elections information leaked from NABU on Trump’s campaign manager #PaulManafort that helped to create the false #RussianCollusion narrative.

So last month the MSM was treating #BernieSanders like the nominee.
Now they're treating #Biden like he's the nominee.

THE FIRST VOTE IS NEXT YEAR.

It's two months till debates. But if other candidates are shut out of coverage, how many will be allowed on the stage?
Where were
#KamalaHarris, #ElizabethWarren, #AmyKlobuchar, #KirstenGillibrand, #JulianCastro,
#CoryBooker,
#Beto
and
#Buttigieg--the remaining top ten candidates--campaigning Monday? Because all we heard about was #Biden in #Pittsburgh.
In an interview on @AC360, Sanders was asked about Biden only. Sanders said he was running against 19 other candidates.

He's right. The MSM is wrong.

#BernieSanders draws sharp contrasts with #JoeBiden on voting records on trade, Iraq War, more.
Bet Sanders is glad he was in the House during #AnitaHill, though... cnn.com/2019/04/29/pol…
The one really irksome quote from Sanders in this interview--because he's right about pretty much everything he says here--is that he wants an "issue-oriented campaign" &"no personal attacks." Sanders personally attacked Hillary in 2016 & he has personally attacked Democrats now.
But these issues #Sanders raises do matter to millions of voters, particularly the more progressive Democrats and Independents. #Biden will have to address these issues if he ever decides to campaign anywhere where it's not just other older white men in the crowd like Pittsburgh.

Writing about #Biden's role in mass incarceration this week.
Congress's mandatory sentencing laws during the Reagan-Bush years were the most Draconian in modern US history.
That's something Biden will have to explain if he ever campaigns outside white working class enclaves.

When I was teaching literacy in prisons & halfway houses while in the domestic Peace Corps in Louisiana & Pennsylvania, every one of my students was functionally illiterate. That means unable to read above a 5th grade level, the level deemed able to function as an adult.
2/
These men and women were unable to read the instructions on a medication bottle, a food preparation label, a street map, an employment form. Imagine not being able to read how to prepare your child's meds or food, or apply for a job? Where does that leave you in adult society?

#BREAKING JOE #BIDEN raises $6.3 million in first 24 hours since launching 2020 campaign—outpacing every other Democratic candidate in the race. And the average donation was $41. @JoeBiden is off and running 🏃!
@JoeBiden You can tell Trump's worried about Biden entering 2020 race because he's back defending Nazis as "very fine people" in Charlottesville. A real winner, Donald. Please proceed 🛣🚴‍♀️
@JoeBiden #Charlottesville UVA Prof @LarrySabato gives Trump the facts: He heard "NOT ONE SINGLE COMMENT ABOUT ROBERT E. LEE." But did hear plenty of racial slurs & Nazi chants—"Jews will not replace us!" "Into the ovens!"—from those "very fine people."

Trump lies to defend Nazis, still.

Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.” 3)

As someone whose country was at the core of the creation of the neologism "Balkanization," which I btw hate, this is an absolute dealbreaker for me too.
