Democratic debates: And then there were ten.

Before I even link to the article here are the only candidates who qualify for the next debate in September: Biden, Cory Booker, Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Sanders, Warren, and Andrew Yang.

Courtesy of CBS:

On the day of the deadline to qualify for the next two 2020 Democratic presidential debates, two new polls indicated that no new candidate has reached the polling threshold required. This means that will be only one debate with 10 candidates on stage for the September and October Democratic debates.

A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll shows Joe Biden with a double-digit lead over the rest of 2020 contenders. Biden, who has been pushing with ad buys in Iowa this past week, attracted 32% support, up two points from the previous USA Today/Suffolk poll in June.

In second is Elizabeth Warren with 14% support, with Bernie Sanders close behind, at 12%. Warren’s support jumped four percentage points since the June poll.

Warren was also a strong second choice for voters — 17% of voters polled picked her, more than any other contender. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg was the third choice with 12%.

All I have to say is “It’s about damn time!” 

I take this shit seriously and I do not want to waste my time listening to people who have no fucking shot at winning this nomination. 

In my opinion there is nobody who was cut who should have been allowed on the debate stage in the first place. 

In fact among those remaining I think Andrew Yang is taking up space unnecessarily. 

To be honest the only ones I want to see debate at this stage are Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders. 

I think it might be of some interest to hear what Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Amy Klobuchar have to say, but I am likely going to hit the mute button for the rest. 

Besides according to a new poll most of the top Democrats would handily beat Trump in the general.

Courtesy of Newsweek:

All of the Democratic Party’s top 2020 contenders would defeat President Donald Trump in the general election, according to hypothetical head-to-head match-ups surveyed in a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and independent Senator Bernie Sanders would handily secure a victory, according to the poll, earning 54 percent and 53 percent, respectively, of the popular vote. These margins, at 16 points and 14 points, respectively, represent some of the most decisive wins for the Democratic Party’s 2020 lineup in Quinnipiac University’s polls.

Senator Elizabeth Warren similarly earned a wide showing of support against Trump, at 52 percent to 40 percent. Her Senate colleague Kamala Harris achieved practically the same margin, and at 49 percent, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg was leading Trump by nine points.

“In hypothetical matchups between President Trump and the top five Democratic presidential candidates, one key number is 40,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow. “It’s the ceiling of support for Trump, no matter the candidate. It hovers close to his job approval rating, which has stayed in a tight range since being elected.”

I actually think that just about any of our candidates could beat Trump, but I want to spike the football in the end zone so I want our best and our brightest. 

Elizabeth Warren, I am talking to you.

    Kirsten Gillibrand has already announced that she is dropping out.

    Good.

    I would rather not see Bernie at all, thank you.

    I agree 100% Jesse (including Yang). The other ten just made it a clown show, and I am relieved none of them will be wasting our time next month. I can’t forget, however, that Hilary was predicted to win over Trump (and would have), but the interference wiped out that possibility. Let’s just hope enough is done between now and 2020 to prevent a repeat. It’s so easy to tamper with the voting machines.

    If you didn’t see this, possibly up to ten machines flipped votes in this Mississippi election. A couple voters got it on their cell phone cameras. I think every one of us had better take our phones into the voting booth, document any irregularities, and raise holy hell if we see it happening.

      I could be wrong, but in MI they don’t allow cellphones in the voting booth.

    I like Joe Biden, but I can’t help but wish he’d give it a pass and throw his support behind one of the others. He’s twice the man Dolt 45 will ever be, but the verbal gaffes and stumbles are not going to help, especially when he’s competing against a dirty player like Donnie.

      I honest to God do not know why they’re even trying when it’s already been called
      Oh, that’s right……$$
      PLEASE vote state and local levels.
      They’ll ask for your wallet as well. Let them get there on their own accord and merit.

      “We are all too familiar with the stories of welfare mothers driving luxury cars and leading lifestyles that mirror the rich and famous,” The Family Support Act.

      “As one 1984 Washington Post piece noted, it was a tax bill, not welfare, that was allowing “business mothers,” not welfare mothers, to purchase Mercedes.”

    Russian State TV Laughs As ‘Trump Sings To Putin’s Tune’

    Russian State TV’s “60 Minutes” airs a mashup of Trump singing a love song to Putin while the Russian premier plays piano.

      Ra$$ian State TV is having a ‘field day’ with Donald Trump’s sycophancy toward Vladimir Putin.

      On Monday they aired a mashup of Vladimir Putin playing piano (really) then mashing up multiple Trump speeches to make the so-called president sing

      “I love it when you call me senorita.”

      They continued to mock Trump’s weakness as he petitioned the G7 to let Ru$$ia back in and blamed Barack Obama for the invasion of CRIMEa.

      You don’t need to know Ru$$ian to know how weak Donald Trump is in the eyes of Ru$$ian State Television.

    The best shot any of these folks have is a major recession, which isn’t really something anyone should hope for.

    The FEC is looking into 69 pages of potentially illegal contributions to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign.

      Maybe since daddy has been anointed King of the Jews, Vanky thinks she’ll replace Pence on the ticket and become the Crown Princess.
