Elizabeth Warren now making significant gains against Joe Biden.

Does anybody else hear Helen Reddy music playing in their heads when they read about Elizabeth Warren, or is that just me? 

Courtesy of Newsweek:

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been the early frontrunner of the 2020 Democratic primary for president, but the latest polling shows Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is not too far behind.

CBS News/YouGov Battleground Tracker found that Warren has gained territory on Biden in an estimate of Democratic National Convention delegates. The former vice president had 600 delegates, compared to Warren’s 545. Bernie Sanders rounded out the top three candidates with an estimated 286 delegates.

When it came to specific early voting states, the tracker showed Warren to be slightly ahead of both Biden and Sanders in New Hampshire. But she was behind her male counterparts in Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada.

But Warren has benefited the most when it comes to voters switching alliances from other candidates. Twenty-nine percent of former Kamala Harris supporters switched to Warren, while Biden only gained 15 percent of former Harris supporters.

An Economist/YouGov weekly tracking poll from September 4 showed Biden leading Warren by just 4 percentage points. The former vice president led the field with 26 percent support, followed by Warren’s 22 percent and Sanders’ 14 percent.

A Monmouth University poll released in late August showed a virtual three-way tie nationally among Biden, Warren and Sanders. Warren and Sanders each had 20 percent support among Democratic voters, compared to Biden’s 19 percent. Biden’s support had declined 12 percent from when the Monmouth survey was taken in June.

The thing that keeps catching my eye is that while Biden holds onto his tenuous lead and Sanders numbers remain relatively consistent, it is Warren who seems to make steady progress with each poll. 

She just keeps plugging away and slowly moving through the pack until evetnually I think she will take the lead and then hold onto it until she is the last survivor on the island. 

That last part is wishful thinking of course because to be honest it is still too early to predict the outcome. 

But I have a good feeling.

    I keep hearing that she has a very good chance at winning the Democratic nomination if Biden fazes out, but when it comes down to her chances against Trump, he would beat her in the general election. In any other country the thought of Trump actually winning another term would be ridiculous but this is the United States of America we’re talking about. Wish I could be more optimistic.

      Margaret Trudeau>”I think he is one of the world leaders who can bring the world around to peace, and talk and work together in a democratic way—and there’s not that many of those kinds of leaders left.

      Former “That photograph was cute, but it was one flash, one moment. A picture tells a story but doesn’t tell the whole story. Donald Trump was right in front of Melania. She was getting ready for a cheek-peck I guess.” “Trudeau “cannot imagine” what it must be like to be married to President Trump.”

      “Does she think her son will win a second term? “I don’t know. Who am I to predict?”

      Yes, unfortunately the USA is “not ready” for a woman president, we really are not that progressive, heck women still don’t even get equal pay.

    How ~IT~ Happened

    “Trump had told an adviser that Gingrich’s vetting packet was terrifying. The dirt Trump’s people had dug up on Gingrich “makes mine look tame,” Trump told the adviser.” – ” it was a previously unreported threat from Pence’s political brain trust that would land him on the ticket and ultimately lift Trump over the finish line months later, changing the course of history. ” – “didn’t particularly like Pence. To Trump, he carried the whiff of a loser.”

    “Trump pollster Tony Fabrizio saw something beyond Pence’s job prospects; Pence was the only candidate he’d run the numbers on who helped lift Trump with evangelical voters and conservatives. ” – “Pence said it was because “God has a plan.” Whatever God’s answer was, Pence would be OK with it.”

    ” Cardwell, a small-business owner for decades, remembered that he was talking with a businessman, so he made a finer point, which played to Trump’s ego and inclinations: “The two of you would be the best public-private partnership in history.” Trump smiled and asked for Cardwell’s cellphone number.”
    “Cardwell said. “The family was all on board with Newt.” – ““That’s the night a flat tire changed the course of American history.”

    “Trump looked at Pence and held up his cellphone. He had several missed calls from Christie. “I need killers. I want somebody to fight,” Trump said in a conversation recalled by Obst. “Chris Christie calls me nonstop about this job. He calls me every 10 seconds; he’d do anything for his job. He is dying to be vice president. And you, it’s like you don’t care.” He reiterated: “I need killers! Do you want this thing or not?”

    “Look, Donald, if you want somebody to be a killer, if you want somebody to be a constant attack dog, I suggest you go find someone else. I’m not that guy.” – “All Trump could say was: “Wow.” He seemed genuinely surprised that a man he had thought of as a loser—a man who also wanted something from him—appeared so nonchalant.

    After Trump and his family left, Obst looked over at Pence. “What was that? That was awesome!” Pence smiled.”
    ” “I haven’t made my final, final decision,” “I’ve got three people that are fantastic. I think Newt is a fantastic person. I think Chris Christie is a fantastic person.” – Trump asked if a tweet would do it. “Yes!” they screamed.”

    A Moody’s analysis found that Trump’s trade war has already cost 300,000 Americans their jobs, with another 500,000 to lose their jobs by the end of 2021 if Trump wins reelection.
