Most recents (20)

In data from @FiveThirtyEight and GDELT tracking, #Biden is leading TV mentions. This is pushing down poll numbers for other candidates.

Biden - 4,317
Sanders - 461
Warren - 1,090
Harris - 146
Buttigieg - 88
O'Rourke - 118
Booker - 142
Klobuchar - 47
Yang - 41
Castro - 21
These numbers should embarrass the MSM. #Harris is polling 4th yet she has less than 2% of #Biden's mentions, only 10% of #Warren's. #Buttigieg is polling right behind Harris and he has only half her mentions. Yet #Booker is almost equal to Harris. While #Castro--almost nothing.
The week showed a big drop in mentions for #Harris and #Sanders, despite high profile appearances for both on major TV shows. The disconnect is striking, particularly since both have rolled out new policy and important changes in their campaigns.

While appearing on FOX NEWS, #TulsiGabbard, who has no experience in foreign policy unless you include chillaxing with mass murderer Bashir Assad, claims
#KamalaHarris ‘not qualified’ to be commander-in-chief because she has no FP experience.

This seems a good time to remind everyone that #TulsiGabbard's history of #homophobia is long and damaging. Her blaming her father when she was casting votes against #LGBTQ people in the HI state legislature is deceptive af.

In the state legislature when she was fighting against same-sex marriage while #KamalaHarris was marrying gay couples in San Francisco, Gabbard said,
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."
On. The. Floor.

HUGE.
#Biden & #Bernie continue to plummet. I wrote last month that #Buttigieg was the natural inheritor of voters divesting of Biden. #Warren is the natural inheritor of the left vote. #Harris, still the most charismatic candidate, has now tripled her Iowa standing since June.
This is the Democratic field. The debates both winnowed the field and reshuffled the deck. Despite massive help from MSM that included two full hours on Chris Cuomo in prime time, much spent attacking Harris and progressives, Biden fails to move his campaign forward.
Sanders has released a couple of videos vomosring himself to FDR, who was president when Sanders was born in 1941. Both Biden and Bernie focusing on the past while Harris and Warren roll out forward-thinking policy almost daily.

This is why the polls are shaking out as they are.

The Democratic field is effectively #Biden, #Warren, #Sanders, #Harris, and #Buttigieg

#DemDebate2
To clarify, I'm going by poll averages over the past few months. I don't think the debates have materially changed the dynamics of the race or altered the top tier.
That said, I think Biden's recent downward drift and Warren's rise will continue.

@RawStory Admitting Depression, #Buttigieg Says U.S. Had a Homosexual President
South Bend, Indiana, Mayor #PeteButtigieg says he’s certain that one or more of the previous 44 presidents before Trump, was, like Buttigieg, a gay man.

@RawStory Did you hear about this in school?
Was #AbrahamLincoln a Gay American?
"For homosexuals, there was a cloud over them but it seldom rained."
People, Ms. Baker noted, "were accustomed to these friendships between men."

#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.

@PeteButtigieg really can't afford to play to #misogyny when the majority of Dem voters are women.
This was an ill-considered cheap shot at his competition when EVERY senator running called--rightly-- for Franken's resignation.
Stop blaming women for men's actions.

Unsurprising that Matthews is fixated on Franken two years later. He has issues.

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.”

#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.

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.

This story I covered this week flew under the radar. It shouldn't have, especially not the week Trump attacked #LGBT people. And the comment I got from Trump's team was...telling.
1/
#Buttigieg targeted by right-wing operatives in antigay sex-assault smear epgn.com/news/national/…
Trump's team is worried about #Buttigieg rising. And they will be more upset now that the Buttigieges are on the @TIME cover because we've never had an out gay candidate in US history. (The not-so-veiled #homophobia from self-styled allies over it has been distressing.)
2/
Trump and Pence have been ginning up their "Evangelical" base with anti-#LGBTQ rhetoric and policy. So Burkman, whose firm reps the Family Research Council (Betsy DeVos's dad's anti-gay hate group)doing this smear was quite the suspect timing.

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.

.⁦@TwitchyTeam⁩ says ⁦@bigleaguepol⁩ is “disreputable.”

Weird.

They’ve gotten a ton of traffic out of our (quite reputable) reporting on Ralph Northam and Justin Fairfax. 🤷🏽‍♂️ twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/…
Aside: Tips have flown into my DMs about #Buttigieg all morning.

Following up on those as we speak.
Blogs like @TwitchyTeam that don’t do any original reporting should maybe shut the fuck up about what’s “reputable.”

Keep aggregating our work, bitches.

#warren/#buttigieg 2020. Tell me why I'm wrong.
I was really hoping to elect a person of color, and I still have some interest in Harris. But she's getting too much heat for her prosecutor background. Besides Warren has the most policies that align with my view of America, AND she knows how to make those goals achievable!
And Buttigieg... I'm still learning about his ability to govern, but I'm continually impressed by how worldly and hella SMART he is. and he's obviously had some inside experience of oppression as a gay man from middle America.

In his book, #Buttigieg recounts growing up listening to his father & other liberal faculty members complain about Reaganites & extol the virtues of a lifelong Marxist named Hobsbawm.
In 12th grade, #Buttigieg won a “Profile in Courage” essay contest & an all-expense-paid trip to DC to receive the award by writing about the (then) ”obscure Vermont Congressman” #BernieSanders, who’d ”been re-elected for years as a socialist.” #ShortestWayHome THREAD
#Buttigieg: After Trump elected POTUS, “I added to our mayor’s office to-do list the creation of a phone tree in the event of immigration raids.”
