Latest 2020 Presidential Polls – 9 March 2020 – MINI TUESDAY Primary Edition

Eighteen states have voted, leaving 32 more to go, and territories, and suddenly Joe Biden is now the undisputed leader in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination. Senator Elizabeth Warren and billionaire Michael Bloomberg have dropped out of the race, leaving Biden, Sanders, and Tulsi Gabbard. However, no one is paying any attention to Gabbard, nor should they. The DOW has plummeted 3,513 points over the last month. The world continues facing a pandemic. Nancy Pelosi is still the Speaker, and Trump remains forever impeached.

So, where are things going into Mini-Tuesday?

In the delegate count, the winning candidate needing 1,991 to win the nomination, following Super Tuesday, where Biden killed Sanders winning Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, the results are as follows:

Joe Biden 681
Bernie Sanders 608
Michael Bloomberg 74
Elizabeth Warren 69
Pete Buttigieg 27
Amy Klobuchar 7
Tulsi Gabbard 2

Bloomberg, Buttigieg, Klobuchar and Cory Booker have all endorsed Joe Biden. Warren is holding her cards close to her vest and not yet revealing where she will throw her support, but following Super Tuesday she received a plethora of ugly messages from Bernie Bros, so, it would be very interesting if she gave her endorsement to Sanders.

In the popular vote totals:

Joe Biden 4,921,782
Bernie Sanders 4,016,248
Elizabeth Warren 1,798,835
Michael Bloomberg 1,726,650
Pete Buttigieg 606,864
Amy Klobuchar 384,438
Tulsi “Why are you still running?” Gabbard 102,383

In national polling, only two conducted post-Super Tuesday, Joe Biden has soared back into the lead over Bernie for the Democratic Party nomination.

In the CNN Poll, conducted from 4-7 March 2020 of 1,211 respondents:

Biden 52%
Sanders 36%
Gabbard 0%

According to the Morning Consult poll, conducted 5 March 2020, of 1,390 Democratic primary voters contacted after Elizabeth Warren had dropped out of the race:

Biden 54%
Sanders 38%
Gabbard 2%

The latest Quinnipiac poll, conducted 5-8 March 2020, places the current rankings as such:

Biden 54%
Sanders 35%
Gabbard 2%

As far as the national race for the White House is concerned, according to recent polling data available, if the election was today, odds are Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders would be the 46th President of the United States. Trump, who forever remains the third impeached president in U.S. history, will still go down as one of the gloomiest and debauched persons to ever sit in the Oval Office.

Latest 2020 Presidential Polls – 2 March 2020 – SUPER TUESDAY Primary Edition

Four states have voted, leaving 46 more to go, and territories, and suddenly Bernie Sanders is no longer the undisputed leader in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and billionaire Tom Steyer have bowed out, narrowing the field as we move into Super Tuesday! The DOW has had its worst week since George W. Bush wrecked the economy. The world faces a pandemic. Nancy Pelosi is still the Speaker, and Trump remains forever impeached.

So, where are things as we move to Super Tuesday?

In the delegate count, the winning candidate needing 1,991 to win the nomination, following South Carolina, the results are as follows:

Bernie Sanders 58
Joe Biden 50
Pete Buttigieg 26
Elizabeth Warren 8
Amy Klobuchar 7
Michael Bloomberg 0
Tulsi Gabbard 0

In the popular vote totals:

Joe Biden 323,244
Bernie Sanders 268,065
Pete Buttigieg 176,695
Elizabeth Warren 111,296
Amy Klobuchar 103,844
Tulsi Gabbard 16,542
Michael Bloomberg 4,793

In national polling, all conducted prior to Super Tuesday, Bernie Sanders continues to hold the lead for the Democratic Party nomination.

The IBD/TIPP poll, conducted 20-29 February 2020, of 908 adults contacted via mobile phones and landlines places the current rankings as such:

Sanders 23%
Biden 20%
Warren 17%
Bloomberg 13%

The latest Yahoo News/YouGov poll, conducted 26-27 February 2020, of 1,662 registered voters places the current rankings as such:

Sanders 27%
Biden 21%
Warren 18%
Bloomberg 14%

In the Morning Consult Poll, conducted from 26-27 February 2020 of 5,000 registered voters:

Sanders 33%
Biden 21%
Warren 18%
Bloomberg 14%

According to the latest Yahoo News/YouGov polling data, in the 10 states that will likely decide 2020 — Michigan, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Maine, North Carolina, and Arizona — Sanders’s lead over Trump is well within the 3-point margin of error (48 percent to 45 percent) making things very uncertain regarding Sander’s ability to beat Trump. In contrast, however, former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump by 9 points nationally (50 percent to 41 percent) and by 7 points (50 percent to 43 percent) in the battleground states.

The key element of being able to defeat Trump is the moderate Republican swing voters where Sanders is running far behind Biden. These voters switched to Democratic House or Senate candidates in the 2018 midterms after casting their ballots for Trump in 2016 helping Democrats flip 41 seats and regain control of the House in 2018. Among these voters, Biden beats Trump by 12 points (51 percent to 39 percent) while Sanders only narrowly outperforms Trump by 4 points (48 percent to 44 percent).

As far as the national race for the White House is concerned, according to recent polling data available, if the election was today, odds are Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders would be the 46th President of the United States. Trump, who forever remains the third impeached president in U.S. history, will still go down as one of the most morose and decadent persons to ever sit in the Oval Office.

Latest 2020 Presidential Polls – 10 February 2020 – New Hampshire Primary Edition

The Iowa Caucuses have come and gone, proving finally that Iowa has no business being the predictor of presidential politics. The caucuses were a shambles and it took more than a week before anyone knew what the actual results were. The GOP controlled Senate has acquitted Donald Trump, as everyone paying attention knew he would be. Of course, as OJ and Zimmerman proved, being acquitted does not mean you are innocent. Nancy Pelosi is still the Speaker, and Trump is forever impeached.

So, where are things as we stumble away from impeachment and into New Hampshire?

In the delegate count race following Iowa, the results are as follows:

Pete Buttigieg 13
Bernie Sanders 12
Elizabeth Warren 8
Joe Biden 6
Amy Klobuchar 1
Andrew yang 0
Tom Steyer 0
Michael Bloomberg 0
Tulsi Gabbard 0
Michael Bennet 0
Duval Patrick 0

In the popular vote totals:

Bernie Sanders 45,826
Pete Buttigieg 43,195
Elizabeth Warren 34,771
Joe Biden 23,691
Amy Klobuchar 21,181
Andrew Yang 1,780
Tom Steyer 413
Michael Bloomberg 20
Tulsi Gabbard 17
Michael Bennet 4
Duval Patrick 0

In national polling, however, former Vice-President Joe Biden continues to lead the pack for the Democratic Party nomination.

The Economist/YouGov poll, conducted 2-4 February 2020, of 1,500 US Adult citizens places the current rankings as such:

Biden 24%
Sanders 19%
Warren 18%
Buttigieg and Bloomberg 9%
Klobuchar 6%
Yang and Gabbard 3%
Steyer 2%
Bennet 1%
Patrick 0%

The latest Morning Consult poll, conducted 3-5 February 2020, of 2,500 Democratic primary voters places the current rankings as such:

Biden 28%
Sanders 24%
Warren and Bloomberg 14%
Buttigieg 6%
Yang 4%
Klobuchar and Steyer 3%
Gabbard 2%
Bennet and Patrick 1%

In the Harvard-Harris Poll, conducted from 27-29 January 2020 of 2,527 registered voters:

Biden 31%
Sanders 20%
Bloomberg 13%
Warren 12%
Buttigieg 6%
Yang and Klobuchar 3%
Steyer 2%
Gabbard 1%
Bennet and Patrick 0%

Moving into New Hampshire Primary, the current primary polling stands as:

As far as the national race for the White House is concerned, according to recent polling data available, if the election was today, odds are any of the top three Democrat contenders would be the 46th President of the United States. Trump, who forever remains the third impeached president in U.S. history, will still go down as one of the glummest and profligate persons to ever sit in the Oval Office.

Santorum wins Iowa?

The Associated Press is reporting that Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Ricky Santorum actually won the Iowa Caucus two weeks ago, and not Willard Mittens Romney.

“There have been two contests,” Santorum said after hearing he actually was victorious. “We won one.”

Ricky reportedly bested Romney by 34 votes in the final tally of Iowa’s caucuses.

“This is a solid win. It’s a much stronger win than the win Gov. Romney claimed to have,” Santorum declared.

Romney of course, who won New Hampshire’s primary, is attempting to call the Iowa results a “virtual tie” while Santorum’s calling it a sign that any calls for him to leave were premature.

“We feel very, very good about what this win will mean,” Santorum said of Iowa’s fresh results. “It says that we can win elections. We can organize. We can put together an effort to pull the resources together to be able to be successful in being the person who can defeat Mitt Romney. Guess what? We defeated Mitt Romney in Iowa.”

Well, it could mean that, or it might just prove that conservative Iowans are still as weird as they were in 2008 when they gave the state to Mike Huckabee.

After “winning” in Iowa, Santorum’s busy trying to build a grass-roots organization of socially conservative Republicans, including pastors, similar to the one that apparently helped him finally finish on top in Iowa; but does the news of a win in Iowa come too late to make any difference in South Carolina? Probably, but the GOTP primary clown car has been spinning wildly back and forth for months now so with the current Tea Party bunch garnering so much power who can tell?

And then there were six

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) never had a snow ball’s chance presidential hopeful Michele “Krazy” Bachman has ended her Quixotic bid for the White House; during a press conference Krazy said her last-place Iowa caucus was essentially the nail in her political coffin. Of course anyone with half a grain of common sense understood from the beginning that Bachmann never stood any chance whatsoever of winning the nomination much less the White House, she’s certifiable, and that finally caught up with her; the longer the race dragged on the more opportunities she had to let her Krazy shine through.

Of course with Bachmann gone, that leaves her supporters with only one logical choice in the continuing GOTP contest, and that choice is Ricky Santorum; the very same Ricky who’s trying to establish himself as the one clear conservative heavyweight in the GOTP race, as Mittens is not now, nor ever has been a conservative.

Santorum essentially tied with caucus winner Mitt Romney (the margin was eight votes) thus suddenly becoming the non-Romney contender for the presidential nomination. But will his rise be for real or merely the latest in a long list including Perry, Cain and Gingrich? Look for Santorum to begin to receive increased funding from the evangelical right, and to begin to draw attention to the stark political differences between Mittens and himself. Of course, odds are he’ll quickly implode now that he’ll be receiving the full media attention of a “front runner”.

As for Bachmann’s departure; at least we’ll all be spared her continually petulant whinny voice; but never-the-less we’ll miss her – to use Mitt’s word – zany antics. Good-bye Krazy, adieu, auf wiedersehen, farewell …

Latest 2012 Presidential Polls – 2 Jan 12 (Iowa Caucus Eve) Edition

Concerning the ongoing GOTP nominating circus (Iowa Caucus Edition), a new Insider Advantage poll of likely voters conducted New Year’s Day has been released:

Romney holds on to a very narrow lead in Iowa as Santorum remains strong as surprising third; Romney 23; Paul 22; Santorum 18; Gingrich 16; Perry 10; Bachmann 6 and Huntsman 2

The interesting thought is, the last poll in Iowa pitting Romney against the President found Mittens the loser by 7 points; NBC News/Marist poll of registered voters conducted 27 – 29 Nov 11: President Obama 46/Romney 39. So, there’s lots of talk in Iowa from Romney and the other six political dwarves about how any of them can beat the President in 2012, but the polling state by state doesn’t come close to bearing out that prediction; in fact current polling on state levels show the President with 338 electoral votes (270 needed to win) and Romney with 200.

Granted a lot can happen in the next 11 months, but if Romney wins the GOTP nomination he’s going to have to run to the center (flip) to win the general election, and the Tea Party portion of the GOTP isn’t going to support that; if he suddenly becomes a moderate again (flop) we may see a third party candidacy from Bachmann, Perry or any number of conservatives.

When Mitt starts trying to be a moderate candidate (flip) look for countless ads demonstrating that he’s a political chameleon – changing colors as needed to win – with no real core values whatsoever; Romney is not electable; he’s not likeable and he flip-flops more than a freshly landed trout; if he’s the candidate – barring a great depression style economic collapse – he loses, and he loses big.

Run Sarah Run?

Huffington Post is reporting that a new political ad is urging former part-time Alaska governor Sarah Palin to reconsider her decision not to run in the 2012 election. The ad allegedly from the group Conservatives4Palin pleads with Palin to “Run Sarah Run!”

Called “The Challenge,” the ad features Palin’s famous remarks against “crony capitalism” and images of tea party protesters mashed up with faded footage of Barack Obama. According to Mediaite, the ad will begin airing in Iowa tomorrow, roughly five weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses.

“If this ad is able to build some momentum for the Governor, the best way to keep that momentum going may be to commission a national GOTP primary poll that includes the Governor as one of the options,” the group said in an announcement, according to The Hill. “We’ll see if it’s possible given our resources.”

If Palin would decide to launch a presidential campaign, she would only have time to register for the South Carolina primary — the deadlines for Florida and New Hampshire have passed. Palin has already stated that she will not be seeking the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) nomination, making an official announcement in early October.

Yes, by-all-means, please run Sarah; with the probable bailing out of Herman “Pizza Man” Cain, the campaign needs additional comic relief and fo’ paws as only somewhat as excruciatingly politically, historically and economically ignorant as yourself can bring. We miss you Sarah, please run, and help Tina Fey find additional work in the New Year!

President should be impeached?


The Huffington Post is reporting that Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wanabee has been Michele “Krazy” Bachmann was working hard – on the campaign trail in Iowa Tuesday – when she agreed with a supporter who suggested that President Barack Obama be impeached in order to “get him out of the way.”

“Well, I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you, I agree, I agree. Some people are really upset,” Krazy replied to the man before moving on to meet another supporter.

Problem is the Congresswoman clearly doesn’t understand what the requirements are for the House of Representatives to Impeach the President; you don’t get to do so just because your uber-conservative white bread supporters say so.

The United States Constitution – a document Bachmann claims to have read and revere clearly states in Article II, Section 4, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

So, outside of the bizarre world uber-conservatives live in with their addled brains, having been turned to glop by a steady stream of FOX PAC and right-wing talk radio, exactly what act of “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” has the President been accused of, and most importantly convicted of? Bueller? Anyone else? Anyone at all? Outside of the collective Brain Captains convention of the uber-conservatives there is no one who thinks this. The GOTP House, controlled by Newt Gingrich impeached President Clinton and then the Senate Judiciary Committee – lead by Orrin Hatch refused to put him on trial. It isn’t an easy thing to do, so wake up citizens of obtuse land.

Krazy is now wandering around Iowa, hearing voices, and interpreting them as a command she run for the presidency while searching for a magic corn field where she can play baseball with Shoeless Joe Jackson – oh wait, scratch that, I don’t think the Kinsellas and Bachmann would get along very well; so, she’s just wandering aimlessly around Iowa agreeing with anything her supporters say, hoping she’ll win the state’s caucus and be miraculously catapulted into the GOTP nomination.

Meanwhile, back in the real world her poll numbers continue to plummet, and her staff continues to defect.
