Caught a clip this morning where Pete says "I was driving to work last week in my Chevy...."

Nothing wrong with that, but it's so cheesy that it brought the Lulz. I uhhhh, would also like to express my fondness of that particular beer. 

If Pete's serious about winning this nomination he needs to dump the Chevy and buy a Harley.

Yikes 

 

Biden is just praying that he can count on SC to buoy him and hope he pulls out a miracle on Super Tuesday. Bernie's got a good number of volunteers already on the the ground there.

Prediction:

Bernie

The Rat

Kloby

Pow Wow

Biden

 

Interested to see how much smaller a margin Berns wins NH today compared to 2016.  not that it matters.

The tweeter is a Trump supporter out of Dallas, I suspect there is more to that video than meets the eye. Any negative Democratic video out circulating, whomever the candidate, I am skeptical upon viewing.

of course.  but you see, "she didn't have a reservation".

I cynically laughed at the cute, albeit insensitive, joke at her virtual expense at a somewhat uncomfortable few moments for some of the people there.  Look at those rubes at the big table.

That probably set a few folks on edge, but I'm certain she could find all the states on a map. Get back to me when she is in Missouri or Kansas and we'll see how things are then.

They have a point.  Bern got 60% of the vote with 152K votes in 2016.  Granted, that was a two way race but he needs to start doing better than 25% tonight and in some of these polls to convince people he's viable.  Turnout tonight will be interesting.

If turnout is flat like Iowa was and Bern comes in at 25%, that's only 61K votes.  That's a loss of 90K votes over 4 years.  We keep hearing about all of these new voters he's brining in but at some point, we need to start seeing it.

Get used to it.  The democratic party didn't want Bernie in 2016 because the thought was he's too far left to win the general election.   I don't think anything has changed in that regard.  They do not want Sanders on the ticket.

That's not how it works.

I'm glad people are noticing that there's basically zero difference between the corporate class that runs the DNC and their mouthpieces in the media.

More and more people are saying it.

I wasn't paying that close attention. Until it became noticeable even to me w/o trying all that hard. They don't like the progressives much. The problem with the other centrist candidates is like deciding between Hellmann's or Miracle Whip when you make deviled eggs so the media is waffling between them all plus Bloomin' Mike. Oh, and those of you that mentioned Smarmy Pete? He does give off the vibe of high school's 'vote for me k thanxx bai,' sometimes. I thought perhaps I was being old and harsh, but I've never gotten that vibe from say AOC or other young pols as much as him. He can be an incredible speaker and I don't care at all about someone's sexuality-it is a nonissue for me, but he treads very very close to a Dem version of Ted Cruz wherein I am observing someone who is clicking through a mental file on what to say regardless of the truth. (he's not Ted, not saying that).

Dear Mass Media "Journalists",

People fucking hate you and they can see through your bullshit.

 

The last comment on this tweet, maybe not the last by the time people read through them, mentions something about Sanders not releasing his health records/reports since the "heart attack".  Anything to that?  I didn't realize it was a thing.

Not sure what "records" actually means here in the context of candidates. What's the normal stuff?

I’d say 1 in 6 chance that one of the nominees croaks between the convention and Election Day. With Biden sanders and trump in the mix that sounds about right.

In all seriousness, what happens when Bernie bites it right before the election? Simulation goes to overdrive.

Inspiring. 

 

Update:  Joe Biden is now changing his itinerary to visit Peaceful Waves Retirement Village in Palm Beach.  He is all-in on the Florida primary now, so much so that he’s actually setting up camp and moving in to the retirement village.  He said he still remains mildly hopeful that he can pull off the win, but later clarified that he was referring to the upcoming shuffleboard tournament at the village and not the primary race.

We're supposed to start seeing results between 7pm and 8pm I think or will we only start seeing results after ALL polls close at 8PM?

Take these with a grain of salt but MSNBC had an exit poll saying the electorate older and more moderate/conservative than in 2016.  (Young voters were down over 2016.)  Also, 50% of the respondents said the Friday night debate was a big factor for them.

Early exits in 16 Underestimated youth turnout by 3 points. So meh

I found the debate impact piece interesting.  Conventional wisdom was Klobs did well with that.  Her closing statement was money, I'll give her that.

Turnout here going to be higher with youth than 2016 if you look at his feed.

They also scrolled an exit poll that said the vast majority decided who they were voting for before January.

One I saw was about half and half.  That could have been the one from 2016, which they also had.

I believe NH changed a law that essentially made it more difficult for younger/newer voters to register.  That was the storyline on CNN earlier...
