Oh please! :rolleyes:

Did you even LOOK the stuff that's on YT alone?

- it would kill any other candidate's campaign stone dead.

It shows how desperate the Democrats are that he is still a front runner...🏃‍♂️
BS misleading cuts like Trump's BS 'reality tv' etc. If Biden was a pervert you would have known about it back in the Book of Exodus when he first got elected, and doing it on behalf of a well documented pervert like Trump is like a prostitute lecturing others about waiting for marriage.

If you want to spray the Trump turd gold, this dog doesn't hunt. Try other things that might.

Seriously what tablets are you on?

Fondling a little girls hair on live TV is not Creepy and Disturbing?

Maybe not in your eyes

- but in the eyes of many it is.

The problem in the 2016 debates was that Hillary allowed Trump's policy positions to dominate affairs - pulling out of TPP, locking her up, building the wall, draining the swamp, deporting undocumented immigrants, his tax plan, his infrastructure plan, his plans for dealinf with DPRK, China, proposing the election was "rigged", pulling out of the Iran Deal, getting NATO and Western Allies to pay their share, repealing and replacing the AFA etc etc.

If the Dems want to win next time they need to enusre that the debates focus as much around their policies as they do around their opponent's policies.
Trump had policy plans? 🤣🤣

The stupid wall (is it a fence now?) and "Lock her up" are glorified as "policy plans".
What a f*cking joke. Trump pandered to white nationalist rage and it was effective enough to squeak in.

This time he will do the same, dressed up in slogans. The Democrats need to be ready with policies, indeed, but the election will also be a referendum on Trump. Trump himself will make sure it is.

I hope you would vote for a man who goes after hair on the head before one who goes for the hair on the pussy.

But apparently not.

Trump has won as long as the Dems play his game.

You Yanks need a New Deal. Trump promised one. it was totally fake, but you need a real one.

Which of the candidates can do that? There is your answer.

Any Democrat with a primary vote will be looking at this and saying "Maybe Ol' Joe Biden ain't so bad".

This came after the debate.

Trump does not get a clear win over anyone, except the anonymous "socialist".

Biden's polling numbers have also been resilient, and have not tanked. Morning Consult poll during 1 - 7th July, ~ 16,699 Likely Voters.

Biden31%
Sanders19%
Harris14%
Warren13%
Buttigieg6%
O'Rourke3%
Booker2%
Bullock1%
Castro1%
de Blasio1%
Delaney1%
Gabbard1%
Gillibrand1%
Hickenlooper1%
Klobuchar1%
Ryan1%

Biden just shows how woeful the Democratic Party is these days that he is the best they can come up with...

A No Hoper if ever there was one...

Shhh. Joe is a great guy, will trounce Trump (like that slogan). The oldest white guy to contest the Presidential election. Multi millionaire man of the Blue collar workers. A candidate who is in politics longer than the total life of the great President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. A vote for Joe is a vote for Progressivism.

Actually yesterday's two Dem primary polls are outliers compared to last week's, and another YouGov today has Biden back at 22%, Warren at 17% and Harris at 14%.

While I would support Biden or Sanders (if nominated), there are good reason that a woman or minority candidate would suit the Democrats better.
  • It would reflect the diversity of the party, and of the party activists.
  • It would produce the voting surge they need in 2020 from younger voters, women and minorities.
  • A novel pairing (e.g. Warren-Castro) would offset the boring "two old white guys" of the Republican ticket.
1. Diversity is the wishy-washiest reason to elect someone. How it's not inverted "Old White Guy" politicking is beyond me. Harris is an excellent candidate because unlike Warren (aloof and a gaffe machine) or Sanders (old and perceived as too socialist), she seems to be both relateable and charismatic in equal measure.

2. Younger voters don't vote, plenty of women voted for Trump and minorities have nothing to gain from a Democrat President.

3. Novel pairing? America is a staunchly conservative nation under the hood. On the surface, it seems progressive and liberal but the majority of America has proven itself to be more inclined towards conservative values.

In order for the Democrats to beat Trump, they'll have to play his game. There is no "rainbow" alternative. That's California or New York. Trump will never win those anyways.

That's not America.

1. If your party, and its activist base, is mostly composed of women, young people and minorities, then running an old white guy may not be a stroke of genius. But it is mainly those activists who will choose, not you or I. If they think their old white guy will beat the other old white guy, then so be it.

2. "Plenty of women"? How long is that piece of string you are holding up? "Plenty of women" also voted Democrat, more than ever in 2018.

3. "America is staunchly conservative", as all the conservatives keep telling each other. A majority of Americas support gun control, abortion, healthcare reform, immigration reform, gay marriage, social welfare, Medicare and higher taxes on the wealthy.

If you are trying to tell me America is all about President Lardass, then you are not really convincing. Blue states run by Democrats are the wealthiest in America with the highest quality of life (but with poverty, too), many Red States are poverty-stricken sh!tholes like Mississippi with declining populations.

Why did Biden or MSM chose to omit Harris’s father Douglas (a esteemed professor of economics at Stanford) statement that their family were substantial slave owners in Jamaica. I suppose we still have a long way to go.

Since slavery ended in Jamaica in 1834, Douglas must be a very old man indeed to have once owned slaves. He did well at his age to have such a feisty daughter.

I presume he meant distant ancestors, not himself.

3 polls today showing big drops for Biden in Iowa, NH and particularly S Carolina, where he previously had stratospheric leads. Now just 6% ahead of Harris there in the latest Change Research poll, fourth in NH and joint third in Iowa.
