Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Racist Abortion Position

But instead of that being an argument in favor of abortion, they say that eugenics is evil and therefore abortion is evil and the Dems are the real racists. LOL.

Biden is not Jeb Bush

with 20 comments

Jeb Bush may have been favored by the party elites, but he was never strongly favored in any polls. He polled around 15% before Trump took the lead in July of 2015.

Biden consistently polls 35% plus with no other candidate anywhere close to him. So Biden far out in the lead is a very different situation than Jeb Bush being in the lead (by less than 3 percentage points over Rubio and Scott Walker) in 2015.

* * *

Let’s rephrase this:

In 2015, Trump was the first Republican candidate to pull out far in front of a crowded field. People said Trump can’t possibly win because blah blah blah blah. Trump won anyway.

In 2019, Biden is the first Democratic candidate to pull out far in front of a crowded field. People say Biden can’t possibly win because blah blah blah blah. What happens next? (And unlike Trump, Biden has the full support of Democratic Party leadership.)

Emerson NC poll

Biden has a dominating lead. Among black voters, Biden polls at 59%.

In head-to-head matchups against Trump, white male candidates, even gay white male candidates, beat Trump, but Trump beats the women.

People keep saying that Biden can’t win, but when is there going to be a poll showing him not winning?

Latest Morning Consult poll

with 28 comments

https://morningconsult.com/2020-democratic-primary/

Biden is way in the lead at 38%.

The anyone-but-Biden vote coalescing around Bernie who has 20%, the only candidate other than Biden in the double digits.

There doesn’t seem to be an anyone-but-an-old-white-man movement yet.

Only 7 candidates polling above 1%, but at this point it’s hard to see how any but the top 5 have a chance at winning this. The top five would be: Biden, Bernie, Pocahontas, the gay mayor, and Kamala Harris.

Andrew Yang has dropped to 1%. I guess Democrats aren’t ready for an Asian man. Democratic voters must be racist against Asians.

Liberal lies, conservative lies

with 125 comments

I saw a tweet (which I lost so I can’t repost here) which said something to the effect that people become red-pilled or alt-right because they learn the truth about a big lie perpetuated by the liberal fakestream media.

I agree with that, but it then occurred to me that this runs in both directions. Perhaps one of the major things pushing millennials away from conservatism is that they discovered the truth of the big conservative lie, that the Bible is really a bunch of hogwash.

I can hear people insisting that belief in the Bible isn’t officially a part of conservatism, but culturally it is. According to a recent Pew survey, 70% of white Republicans “believe in God as described in the Bible” compared to only 32% of white Democrats.

Biden killing it in the polls

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/

Biden even leads Bernie by 18 points in New Hampshire, Bernie’s strongest state after Vermont, where he clobbered Hillary by a huge margin in 2016.

If this keeps up, Biden can’t be stopped. Or I should say that only Biden, himself, can stop Biden. He would have to blunder incredibly badly in the debates or something like that. Or some horrible new #metoo stuff comes out.

How could I have been so wrong, a month ago, to predict that Bernie would win the nomination?

This post, and others like it, are not an endorsement of Joe Biden, just an observation.

Yes, Biden can get the nomination

I saw an article with the headline of Why Biden won’t get the Dem nomination. That’s what they said about Trump. Even though he’s ahead in the polls, he can’t possibly win the nomination. And unlike Trump, Biden doesn’t have the hatred of the mainstream media.

I think it’s crazy that someone as old as Biden is likely to win the Democratic nomination, but is that any less unlikely than Trump? I don’t think so.

It comes down to no one else having enough name recognition, likeability, and gravitas to win the nomination. As I wrote on Saturday, this situation happened because the media stopped giving attention to normal Democrats, and instead has been focusing on the crazy people in the party like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.

Holy ****, Biden is skyrocketing in the polls

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/

Looks like Buttigieg had his gay day in the sun, and now it’s time for voters to get serious and elect a heterosexual white man.

But why does the heterosexual white man have to be so damn old?

I just came up with a theory for that. In order to win the nomination, a candidate needs NAME RECOGNITION. But who is getting all the name recognition in the Democratic Party these days? The answer is crazy divisive toxic people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Biden retains his name recognition from the days when normal people in the Democratic Party could get media attention. But there’s no younger generation.

Joe Biden soaring in the polls

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/

Wow! Looks like I was totally wrong when I predicted that Bernie would win the nomination.

The only thing that can stop Joe Biden is himself. There’s still a decent possibility of that happening.
