Even though jb isn't my choice, he would likely be better than what dt has been, but maybe more importantly, what dt will be in a second term. I can't even begin to image how reckless dt will be when he has no reelection concerns.
 
Biden appears to think he can also be a revisionist. Trump wasn't working the pile at Ground Zero. There weren't any Muslims dancing on their roofs or in the streets celebrating the planes hitting the WTC.
So Biden got caught multiple times by fellow debaters ,the moderator and the public in general,the look on his face when a young pretty black woman read an ugly racist quote from him he was generally stunned.
Ramos from Univision read multiple lies Biden told and instead of Biden questioning the validity of the claims he just smirked.Ramos asking "why should we trust you now?" and Biden' s inability to respond probably meant Joe was wearing his lucky Hillary T-shirt underneath his suit.
If anyone else had a chance to come towards the center they didn't do it last night. Free school, complete debt forgiveness,ditching private health insurance,monthly payments for every American...way too far left for most. But the nuke was suggesting that the government go on a AK47- AR15 confiscation campaign was applause worthy but I don't think it will equal votes
 
It's great to see these GOP lapdogs be in the pinch they are in..re-gun control/UBC. If they support these, they get smacked by their knuckledragging base..of they don't, they get smacked by the YUGE moderate middle. BUT...a big we'll see..I doubt McConnell, trumps biggest, sad faced hinge-neck, will put GOP senators on tne spot and on the record, with a vote..McConnell, like trump and guys like Cruz, need to go..

For right above..GM strike..maybe Herr trump will call out the national guard...
 
If the dept of labor kept in and out statistics on unemployment we would all be better off. Watched " American Factory " on Netflix and a few people interviewed on film said similar things about the workers way of life. Working on an auto assembly line,union benefits package, @$28-40 per hour wage,decent conditions and high expectations for the health and safety of workers. The film details a Chinese company tooling up and building automotive glass products in the US w American workers and Chinese management and Chinese workplace philosophies.
Most workers were making @$12-14 dollars an hour and the Chinese management personnel had high expectations for the workers.
dept of labor statistics show full time employment but don't reflect the 30-60% wage decline and loss of benefits and increase in workplace pressure.. In my opinion they should track the person's wages and benefits when they became unemployed and see if they reentered at a wage higher or lower.

Interesting (huge) difference for Sanders, but also interesting that Warren is second at 25% in both age groups. I'm surprised that Buttigieg and Booker aren't up farther with the under 35s, and surprised that Yang is that high.

Can I conclude that Warren will pull this because of her support from all ages?

As always, I question polls for their accuracy/validity for many reasons but...
 
I wonder if Trump can really interpret the action by the Fed.? Multiple members voting to lower the rate. Just @7 weeks after the last slash. One urging a 1pt cut.
What does this select group that do nothing other than pour over economic everything..what do they see? Why 2 actions in less than @2 months? What are they afraid of?

Yang and Sanders high with the youths, obviously the Joe Rogan effect.

Currently, I think Warren has a lot of second place votes on people's ballots. So, if the field is winnowed quickly, I think she has the advantage. I don't think her voters and Sanders voters overlap as much as the conventional wisdom suggests, but I think there is enough split vote that Biden still has the clear advantage if there is a 3 person race through Super Tuesday.

Trump held a press conference that was both in and out of sequence at the same time,his normal. He listed things he thinks of significance about the US military machine. Weapons of every shape and size. Tanks, planes,drones,missile systems,submarines!!
He has over these last days integrated Saudi Arabia into his lengthy praise of joint ventures involving armaments.
All this hardware is in place as the Saudis crashed into the World Trade Center. The Saudis have miles of our military hardware in place but it did nothing when a tiny strategic strike took out the Saudis oil supply.
So if an argument was ever needed for increased in diplomatic relations and intelligence gathering it's now. Over and over we have listened to the rant about the significance of the US - Saudi relationship. We here little about Qatar and Turkey..both have received or dished out disrespect toward US cooperation.
Israel and anyone else can have nuclear weapons that are unusable for protection either before or after an attack.
We needed a strong team..for everything. Now is Trump wants to take on everything,everyone Arab,Muslim or non European he is going to lose..we are going to lose. America can't defeat Iran,period, sure a guaranteed win in a battle but no way in a war.
The U.S. should listen to itself. As the Saudis display unmistakable metal objects originating in Iran as proof, too many other people in the region and beyond can show similar metal fragments..Made in the USA,..Yemen,Libya,Lebanon,Syria and all over the place.
If Trump doesn't think a war against Iran won't endanger our bus load of troops in Afghanistan he is higher than normal. This guy is trying to kill Americans, air,water and weapons,big and small.
If Trump could learn anything from Putin ask him why he left Afghanistan..
