Emerson New Hampshire poll

Sanders Slips in New Hampshire; Biden, Warren Take Lead

The Emerson New Hampshire poll should make Democrats (and their stooges in the fakestream media) shake with fear and bring joy to Trump supporters. The poll shows that Trump beats Warren by 2 points. This is in a state that Trump lost to Hillary in 2016, and is next door to Warren’s home state of Massachusetts and shares the same media market.

Yet it looks like Democrats may very well be stupid enough to give the nomination to Warren. Warren is the favorite at prediction markets, probably for the reasons I previously stated (regarding Biden’s predicted fall).

  1. I’m not following it closely . But I have heard them all speak. I’d say Warren comes fairly well (just in her mannerisms–not in what she is actually saying). Harris seems like a scolding shrew. Biden seems to be not dealing from a full deck. Sanders seems like a crazy old man yelling at people to get off his lawn.

    So I would think Warren would have the best chance. Glad to hear she is polling behind Trump.

    There has been so much Trump derangement syndrome I think a lot of people would be afraid or embarrassed to admit to a pollster that they plan to vote for Trump.

    • I have always been impressed by Warren as a shrew and hectoring. The fact that she wears these granny 3/4 length sleeves doesnt help. She would wear out her welcome with the public very quickly on their tv’s day in and day out in the general election.

      Harris comes off to me as more cogent and intelligent. But her campaign got killed with the split screen with Gabbard: not only was Gabbard correct about Harris’s lies about her record but the two side by side made Harris look old and angry. She isnt going to be able to recover from that unless the top three get hit by oldness.

      Still hoping for a Trump abdication….

  2. OT, there is trouble in leftoidland.

    Deray McKesson wrote a long thing slagging Shaun King, a male Rachel Dolezal SJW:

    View at Medium.com

    This is great:

    “One of the things that was brought to my attention was that Shaun fundraised for The North Star, in part, by saying that white supremacists were hacking the website but this, in fact, was untrue. Instead, the site had been built poorly and just needed better technological infrastructure.”

    • Shaun King is not a male Rachel Dolezal. While Dolezal claimed to be black while actually being completely white, King obviously is part black.

      • Has King taken an ancestry test yet? His mother is white and the man who is listed as his father on his birth certificate is white too. King claims that his mother was schlonging a light skinned black man on the side, or something. He looks white to me.

      • Imagine forming and explaining your personal and professional identity on the basis of your own mother’s infidelity.

        Imagine hectoring white Americans publicly, knowing a white man became your father, when your colored father wouldn’t do it. Imagine being that ungrateful. If you can.

  3. I think it’s the opposite. The base Dem voters like Warren because she’s selling what they want, ie, socialism plus eat-the-rich. Free healthcare, free education, higher taxes.

    Dem insiders like Warren because they see polls like this and realize she’d lose to Trump. So they’re pulling hard for Biden.

      • Because older people have responsibilities, pay taxes. Young people like Bernie for the freebies he is throwing at them.

  5. I haven’t been following closely, but from what I’ve seen, Warren is much more likable than Hillary.

    I actually didn’t even get why Hillary was always rated as not very likable. She seemed OK to me. But in comparison, I sort of can tell I guess. Warren just seems (I’m not really sure why) more likable for some reason.

    Don’t know how much that plays into people’s votes. There is a tendency I think to rate voters as dumb and basing their vote on dumb stuff like that (which I tended to agree with), but Trump seems to have won based on his unique policies. (Or maybe it was because people actually liked his crass style. Who knows?)

    But anyways, Warren kind of scares me as someone with more possible broad appeal than she’s generally given credit for. (Or maybe deep down people really do hate socialism and aren’t just saying it ……and wouldn’t vote for her based on that.)

    • Trump won because he said he was going to build the wall. He won the nomination because Republicans have come to see that the Country Club Republicans, “Tru-cons”, and Neo-cons are worthless and not working in their interests.

    • I agree, Warren is much more likable than Hillary. This is independent of actual policy. Hillary was not a likable candidate.

    • Hillary’s voice is approximately 2 SDs more cacophonic than the mean. Listening to it raises the hairs on the back of my neck. Warren’s voice is not far from the mean.

    • Warren isn’t as shrill as Hillary but I don’t see her having any prole appeal. I don’t think she could win the rust belt.

      As for her policies I read something yesterday that made me kind of like her. This was disturbing to me because I am a Trump supporter and I don’t want to like Warren. During the financial crisis a decade ago she strongly opposed Obama bailing out the big banks and corporations. Very few politicians, especially Democrats, were against the bailouts and I really like this about her. Sure the economy could have crashed and burned all the worse without the bailouts but I wanted a reset. Through the bailouts we maintained the status quo and ended up blowing up the same bubbles as before.

  6. As a black man, the only candidates worth voting for me are Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. Everyone else is not qualified to be president because they are the wrong race. When was the last time a black person won the Oscar for Best Actor? When? This country has so many racist issues.

    • I’m a black man, really black, and I am not interested in Kamala “lock you up for weed, while I smoke it” Harris, and Corey “Drama Queen” Booker.

      Sorry, black faces in high places, don’t produce change in the black community due to being able to “live vicariously”…I would vote for Trump if we promoted the policies I wanted to see. We need to stop getting caught up in appearances and hold people accountable to policies. Nothing in Harris’ record suggest to me she will do anything for black people but sometimes call herself “black”…when it is convenient. Cornball Booker (trying to be a cross between Mandala and Obama) is obviously not going to make it.

      Most black folks don’t agree with you, I’m sure you know that, most people are going for Biden, especially the old heads…because they may like Warren, but don’t believe she can get elected and if she did, get anything done. That might change though if she wins Iowa and New Hampshire. Biden will win South Carolina…then all hell will break lose.

      I’m leaning toward Harris., although I think any of the top 4 democrats can win against Trump is the economy tanks and lay-offs stop before the election, if not, I think even Biden (the great white hope) will struggle to win against Trump. Keep in mind though Trump barely won the last election. It doesn’t take much to flip Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. Still, it’s hard to unseat a sitting president.

      • As a black man, I can’t believe you would disown black bros and hos like this. Seriously. What the hell?! Obama was the greatest president in US history but his vice president is NOTHING compared to the glorious Corey Booker. Kamala Harris has never done drugs and even if she did, I would support her because she is black. Hopefully Corey and Kamala can get married and run together on the same ticket. America NEEDS diversity.

      • There are so few genuinely black people reading my blog and willing to write non-angry comments, maybe we shouldn’t respond to them with that sort of satire.

      • Social Justice Warrior: Now I know you are not black, your trolling, we don’t even talk like that,and if you are black you have no connection with the community, with the culture…you clowin’ and buckdancin’. Stop playin, I ain’t the one “bro”…if you are gonna pretend to be a black foil for white conservatives, at least know your role a bit better.

  7. Many black folks don’t like Kamala – https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/a-few-liberal-activists-challenged-kamala-harriss-black-authenticity-the-presidents-son-amplified-their-message/2019/07/07/f46c4b8a-9ccd-11e9-85d6-5211733f92c7_story.html

    I agree with Lion, Warren will get the nomination. It will be very interesting to see who she picks for VP.

  8. The below white law professor would be tthe perfect President for black people. Here he is complaining about a 3rd Strike sentence where a brotha sucker-punched another brotha and broke his jaw. The professor’s position? Well, since the vic says he really doesn’t want his attacker to go away forever, the Asian judge who wrote the opinion is mean.

    • The best paragraph:

      Maybe — maybe — I’d feel differently if the guy had committed three prior murders or stuff like that, and the instant offense is proof positive that it’s just a matter of time before the guy impulsively kills again.
