Most recents (24)

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.

One viral image being shared on social media used a bit of reverse psychology, asking what Americans would think if the details of this story involved the #tRump family rather than the #Biden family. #GreatWhiteHunter

A viral image being shared on social media uses reverse psychology, asking what Americans would think if the details of this story involved the #tRump family with its #GreatWhiteHunter sons rather than the #Biden family with its "great white" son, Hunter.

#HunterBiden was a senior VP for financial services giant #MBNA — an arrangement that drew criticism during the 2008 elections for potential conflict of interests.
As senator, #JoeBiden spearheaded legislation that would have affected MBNA’s business. cnbc.com/2014/05/13/bid… #DNC

#Warren said she was Native American & was listed as Harvard's 1st female "professor of color". Test proves she has only 1 NA ancestor 6-10 gens back, evoking outrage over the lie. But #Trump is held to a lower standard of truth because the public knows he lies about EVERYTHING.
Genetic testing shows I am 1% western African. Based on Warren's standard of truth, I could claim to be African-American, giving me preferential minority status and special assistance. She & her team are trying to deal w/ this issue in anticipation of a matchup against Trump.
I've exchanged messages with black family history researchers who have been surprised to find that we are blood relatives. I'm proud to have that DNA connection to Africa, but I don't use it to claim that I'm African American.

1) Recap of last night's democratic debate:

The Chairman of the Democratic National Committee funneled four pots of coffee before taking the stage and nearly has a heart attack while screaming about the republicans.
2)The quote of the night is already, "Climate change threatens our universe."
Never change, Tom Perez... Never change.

The moderators are introduced.
We have three hours of tonight's debate featuring ten candidates talking for seven minutes each divided into segments of four
3) I'm already confused.

ONE?! Only one of these jobbers has dropped since the last debate? How is that possible? I'm looking directly at you, Beto.
The national anthem is sung and shockingly, all the candidates remained standing and no one took a knee.

#KamalaHarris's support is almost evenly split between women and men. The same is true of her support from voters with and without college degrees. Her support from black voters is equal to Biden's and support from Latinx is higher.

#LizWarren's main support is from women at 60%. Warren's support from voters over and under 45 is almost evenly split, unlike any other top four candidate. And she has nearly equal support among college and no college voters.

via @MorningConsult
The evenness of @KamalaHarris's polling between women and men and voters of color and white voters versus the other top four candidates is significant and bolsters her electability argument.

I ask you to get a better team that can frame your strategy in 45secs max and is about what you can do for voters, not about folks you think don't like you when it's actually Liz Warren and her proven policy they fear.
What #Bernie should've done is show how his signature issues have been incorporated into the Zeitgeist. This looks old, with clips from debates he lost. Plus SURELY there's a CEO who's not Jewish? This has an unpleasant " rich Jews run the world" vibe he should have seen.
2/
Also, none of these people even says they hate #Bernie. These are such tepid call outs when he claims they "hate" him. They have called out Liz #Warren viciously, but not Sanders, which makes this feel even more irrelevant. And Greenspan retired in 2006! Why is he in here?

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.

As I first wrote several weeks ago would happen, the Democratic debates have restructured the polling, putting, as I predicted, @KamalaHarris and @ewarren within striking distance of @JoeBiden.

Biden 22%
Harris 17%
Warren 15%
Sanders 14%
Buttigieg 4%

Months of assertions that #Biden was "inevitable" have been eviscerated. Unable to stand up to #Harris at the debates, Biden appeared tired, confused and unprepared, despite having been kept away from major events for weeks by his handlers. Harris has been campaigning daily.
#Warren won the first debate handily, with only @JulianCastro and @CoryBooker offering any other strong moments in the two hour debate.
The new rankings put #Harris and Warren in the lead for most electable and many are already talking about Harris/Warren as the 2020 ticket.

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.

#Rational thinking is the ability to consider the #Relevant variables of a situation and to access, organize, and analyze #Relevant information to arrive at a #Sound conclusion. Confine oneself to the facts as they are. Do not add to it with your #Bias.
@TulsiGabbard was referring to this one incident only: at a fundraiser in New York on Tuesday night June 18, 2019, Biden tried to back up his claim that one of his greatest strengths was to “bring people together.” 1/
Biden then used an extreme example of people with whom he had major disagreements but still “#GotThingsDone” within the Senate. But today DEM and GOP Become enemies. 2/

#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.

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.

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.

#BREAKING
And then there were a bazillion.
#JoeBiden is running. As he does every few decades. He's announcing next week AFTER everyone does the @CNN debate/town hall event, because how better to diminish everyone else's hard-earned press with your own?
theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
As @IsaacDovere notes: "[Biden’s] decided he isn’t too old, isn’t too out of sync with the current energy in the Democratic Party, and certainly wasn’t going to be chased out by the women who accused him of making them feel uncomfortable or demeaned because of he’d touched them."
Now that Biden is in, he'll have to actually present a platform. Joking about sexual harassment isn't one, nor is complaining #AnitaHill should just get over herself, nor is "I was Obama's VP!"
The question is, who's Biden's base? Not millennials, not Gen Xers.

So per @NBCNews, these are the latest fundraising rankings.
These are significant because #Warren is after #Sanders and #Harris in the polls where they rank 1st and 2nd (not counting Biden since he's not in) but her fundraising is below #Booker.
As these money rankings stay, Warren is in trouble for the debates like Castro and Gillibrand are because of the rules on how fundraising numbers = viability. Not making the debates would be terrible since #Warren & #Gillibrand are the most progressive & #Castro the only Latinx.
Also, these daily totals are averaged, but they aren't representative as a metric because all these candidates entered at different times & Sanders never stopped fundraising from 2016.
The question is, how much is no big donors hurting #Harris & #Warren?

#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.

I was attacked viciously by Democrats last year for saying that #Avenatti was not only not presidential material, but dangerous for Dems to tie themselves to, that he had questionable history with clients and contractors and women.

I was the 1st journalist Avenatti blocked.
1/
Hundreds of Democrats, including some prominent Twitter voices, claimed he would be our best choice for 2020 and excoriated me for "being divisive."
Avenatti tanked the fight against #Kavanaugh by bringing in a questionable witness who gave the #GOP an excuse to ignore Ford.
2/
Many of the #Avenatti fans are now pushing #Biden, which I have also said is a huge error in judgement.
Just as I warned #Mueller was not going to save us.
My point is simply that some of us have been covering politics for decades and doing it without fealty to individuals.
