Has JoeJimmySaville died or something because he has faded away. I know ye yahoos will be heartbroken but I told ye, he was a non entity and The President would wipe the floor with him
Biden does seem to have dropped out of the news cycle. But this is the phoney war before the real one in the primaries and election. Still think that a Kennedy/Gabbard or Gabbard/Kennedy ticket would be a good one for the Dems. However, the Dems might be still influenced by the Clintons and will want to refight the last election against Trump.

Let's call a spade a spade. Me and you are a few levels above most posters here and called it from the start. JoeJimmySaville is a total and utter buffoon and will not feature at all..
Gabbard, Yang, Beto and Butthole are worth watching.

Buttigieg said to be trying to stop tapes coming out about his firing of a police chief. Rumours of racist language by white cops on the tapes.

Spoke to friends in the States who are Bernie supporters, apparently Warren has very little support which I find surprising given the impression I had formed of her, admittedly from Ireland.

I do not know why you would be surprised because she is both a fake and a joke who could not get elected in Oklahoma where she is from.
Contrast that to the Bernie supporter who can justly say that even if you disagree with Bernie, he is genuine and was beaten and arrested in the 1960. The two are as different as chalk and cheese. Bernie's time may have passed but at least he is a real contender. The Fake Indian would be destroyed by the smarter President Trump and she will not even get to Iowa imho.

USC/LA Times (who consistently had Trump with his nose in front in lead up to 2016) have tonight handed Trump, to the best of my knowledge the lowest approval rating of any poll of his Presidential term, just 34%
MAGA, so much winning

Compared to her influence on policy and her ideas, Warren is behind where she should be. Here is someone who has spent much of her career defending small consumers from rapacious financial institutions, and whose work is being undermined by Trump's pro-plutocrat Administration.

With the media of course, it is not about policy and influence, when it is a woman it is all about "likeability". :rolleyes:

Looks like three Democratic candidates (Sanders, Harris & O'Rourke) just released their tax returns.

Kamala Harris Releases 15 Years Of Tax Returns

Bernie Sanders and Beto O'Rourke release decade worth of tax returns

This time four years ago, the plonker in the White House was promising to release them "after the election".

Here we are, nearly 4 years later, and Old Gropey is deploying a top-dollar team of legal eagles to prevent the American people from verifying he is the crook and the liar they suspect he is.

You are not too good at reading smoke signals, I told you she was a joke and would not even get to Iowa before quitting.

Ballsy and fiery
FOX Fluffers out of their depth with a real heavyweight.
Bernie has a real serious shot at the whole title

And the exquisite knowledge that Trump was sitting in White House watching and fuming.
"Get me Sean and Tucker on line now, how did this guy get on MY network"?
Fox News' Bret Baier gets bombarded by furious Trump supporters for giving Bernie Sanders a town hall

As expected Trump and his demented followers are going ape with their Propaganda channel FOX, for allowing Bernie airtime, treating him with respect and even impartiality.
Bret Baier the FOX host being lacerated for not allowing a more normal FOX routine of calling him crude and insulting nicknames and generally lying through their teeth.


Bernie supporters ecstatic today, feel it may be a pivotal moment for him.
Going in to lion's den and performing. It was a brave move and not without risks but looks like it has paid off.
Trump might BS about "Crazy Bernie and his wacky socialism"
But if lower income Trump supporters can switch off the incessant noise, lies and BS of their POTUS, they will see "Crazy Bernie" is far from crazy, especially for lower waged people like themselves.

A Dem candidate that can make even small inroads into Trump's base will score big time
Part of Biden's appeal to Dems is he is likely the only candidate that can get at Trump's older white cranks.
Bernie now, may have opened up a route to get at lower waged cultists (if they are in fact capable of actually listening)

Will it be enough? the danger is that they will fight the last war and ignore the majority of voters leaving a gap for an independent.

Neither of those two old men,boring hacks, will get anywhere.

Trump won because he pretended to be a revolutionary, if the Dems want to win they got to do it for real.

The Americans had one revolution, they don't want another.

I feel unless someone else makes a significant move in polls in next 2 months, one of these men will be the next POTUS

Why haven't Kamala Harris and Beto in particular not made any move in polls as yet?
Because all internal and external polling for Dems is telling them number 1 issue is "removing Trump
Biden and Sanders at present are the only two doing just that.
If a real Dem revolution is coming, Dem voters are saying it can wait till 2024

I feel neither will be

In the feelings game who cares? :)

Did you not get the bit about how Trump won by pretending to be a radical? There is a thirst in the USA for something new, Trump was not that, and neither is Biden or the other old ****.
