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.

I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

#Sanders and #Biden have both been on #Medicare for well over a decade.
Didn't they every look at what it is?
Medicare has parts A, B. C and D.
Everyone has to buy a plan in addition to what the government provides.
So this is actually exactly #Medicare--for all....
Parts A, B, C and D. Parts A & B are known as Original Medicare. This is the most basic coverage you can get. Parts C & D are available through private health plans. They're both ways to enhance your health care coverage if you want more than what Original Medicare offers.
#M4A
Medicare has several parts. Part A covers your hospital care. Part B is for your medical care or doctor visits. Part C, which is an alternative to Parts A and B covers both your hospital care and doctor visits. Part D is a prescription drug plan. - aarp.org/health/medicar…

#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.
via @MorningConsult
#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.

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%

cnn.com/2019/07/01/pol…
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.

Same rules as last night I am not numbering these tweets that would be a bit too difficult. I will try to keep the ellipsis to a minimum as well.

#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.

#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.

Long, thoughtful, fascinating exploration of #Bernie's history. This narrative makes Bernie immensely more accessible and even likeable. His long financial origin story is quintessentially American in its working-class to riches trajectory.

I've written about #Sanders over the years and like most leftists, thought his politics were an essential prod to others in Congress. But there are details of his political history here that #Bernie should be pushing instead of hiding: like that he was a Harvard fellow.

#Sanders is often presented as s spendthrift, but what propelled #Bernie from 3-term mayor of tiny Burlington into the House was his fiscal responsibility. He literally was deemed the Republican Trotskyite while mayor for reeling in spending and building the city's coffers.

#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.

1) En train de regarder le meeting de #Trump face aux adhérents de la #NRA, le lobby pro-#armes. Fascinant de le voir dérouler, tout en excès,son programme: immigration illégale zéro, repeuplement des cours fédérales de justice pour remplacer les juges "partisans"contre lui...
2)... et là, #breaking, #Trump annonce qu'il va faire 1 surprise aux détenteurs d'armes pour protéger leur droit...il dit qu'il ne ratifiera jamais le traité de l'ONU sur le commerce des #armes signé par #Obama. Il retire sa signature. Acclamation nourrie de la foule de la #NRA.
3) #Trump signe en direct théâtralement le retrait du traité onusien sur le commerce des #armes, sous les applaudissements de la #NRA et il envoie le stylo dans la foule. Quel spectacle invraisemblable... et beau symbole de la présidence US de Trump.

Lisez et relisez cette phrase (et le passage souligné en rouge) sur la campagne #Trump et la #Russie du rapport #Mueller, elle revient 2 fois dans les 15 premières pages. De la notion de "collusion" qui est d'ailleurs aussi beaucoup discutée dans les 1ères pages. #teasing
2) Après le résumé du volume 1 sur 7 pages, dont le texte précédent page 5 est extrait, le rapport #Muller narre d'abord ses découvertes sur l'opération de déstabilisation de l'élection US 2016 par l'IRA de Prigozhin, proche de #Poutine, sur les réseaux sociaux.
3) Cette partie très caviardée sur l'ingérence de l'IRA russe sur les réseaux sociaux conclut clairement: l'IRA de Prigozhin viola les lois US contre l'influence étrangère des campagnes mais les campagnes locales de #Trump contactées par l'IRA ignoraient l'origine russe (page 35)

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?

This awed tone of MSM coverage of #Sanders is so gendered.

Harris and Klobuchar are both daughters of single mothers who had to raise their kids alone after their husbands left the families.
Warren also grew up in a working class family in Oklahoma.

THREAD📌📌📌
1/
Money was a stress for these women's families as well. Klobuchar has spoken movingly of her family's estrangement from her father, an alcoholic.
But the coverage of these women not only hasn't reflected this awe of their families' struggles, but has been harshly critical.

2/
No one has situated Klobuchar's perfectionism within the well-documented construct of being the child of an alcoholic fighting chaos.

Harris and Klobuchar both had to work harder than their male counterparts to get on their college & career paths, due to their backgrounds.

La porte-parole de #Trump, #Sanders, montre ici, à son corps défendant face à Chris Wallace, pourquoi tant d'acteurs politiques ou sociaux veulent museler les journalistes. Ceux-ci rapportent des faits contrariant leurs récits idéologiques qu'ils entendent muer en réalité. RT+1
2) Car s'il faut trouver 1 sens au compte Twitter de #Trump, instrument d'abord de conquête puis d'exercice du pouvoir, ce n'est pas- seulement- en déversoir instinctif de haine contre la #presse et les médias indépendants mais comme leur possible substitut à terme.
3) #Trump a toujours été d'abord 1 fabricant et marchand de récits, centrés sur sa personne, dans les affaires puis en politique. Ses récits mirifiques sont marqués par l'exagération, l'invention pour vendre et seule 1 presse indépendante a pu rendre Trump "comptable" des faits

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Democrats and Republicans, Independents and Greens should be fully supporting Tim right now and calling out the corruption loudly if he is cheated yet again.
Canova is the singular progressive to finally fight the corrupt @DNC by calling out the voting interference for what it is & exiting the DNC system entirely. His **actions** are what strongly differentiate him from progressives like #Sanders & @Ocasio2018 who bow to the DNC.
Sick of me talking about Tim Canova? Sorry, almost no other journalists are giving his campaign coverage, and it is the single most important 2018 race - regardless of your political affiliation. (Which is why it is blacklisted from MSM discussion while other races are reported)

Opinion: The Death Of Hope And Why It Is Crucial For An American Awakening

disobedientmedia.com/2018/08/opinio…
"The death of hope can push us into a very dark place, but that darkness is the birth canal of real change."
"For some people, hope came in the form of a red hat, with stenciled letters embracing their foreheads promising to Make America Great Again. My hopes were pinned instead on #BernieSanders."

2/x @nra but now, having said that, can we dig deeper beyond the NRA, the american left has NO Democratic Party opposition to war. the fake Wakanda domiciled liberals and progressives have been manipulated to allies of the military-industrial-complex
3/x #nra Democrats who wore kente cloth and/or boycotted the State of the Union cannot find their voices to object to America’s bombing of Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, or Somalia. hmmm
