Default NYT Opinion

Yeah, shocking. NYT prints someone with a non-disparaging take on Sanders.

Some thoughts:

With recent polls showing Sanders winning New Hampshire, the coronation of Warren appears to be on hold. How bad is it for Warren? She and Yang are the only 2 candidates that lose to Trump in New Hampshire.

I saw an opinion piece that at a brokered convention, Bloomberg could be seen as a candidate that the 4 major contenders could settle on. My fear is that any brokered convention would make it impossible for the party to come together by November.

I would have said that Michelle Obama could be that candidate, but that was before the rumored comments by President Obama.

Yang with more juicy donations and lots of grassroot support, but not getting the media attention he deserves.

+ YouTube Video

Gotta wonder how he'd be doing in the polls if he got the same exposure as Biden/Sanders/Warren/Buttigieg

I'd say that Sanders isn't getting the attention he deserves either, especially with MSNBC.

Are any of them getting attention? It seems like the media is fixated on impeachment and Iowa is still more than a month away.

We are looking at 4 serious candidates. Bloomberg may become the 5th - that’s yet to be determined. The others are Just running in place.

The changing Republican Party.

A majority of Republicans say President Trump is a better leader than former President Lincoln, according to this week’s Economist/YouGov weekly tracking poll.

Fifty-three percent of Republicans said Trump was a better president than Lincoln, while 47 percent chose the Civil War-era leader.

I’m sure most them were opposed to the ending slavery part.

Fifty three percent of forty percent of the electorate.

.53 X .40 = 21%. So there you have it. Not surprising that 21% of this country favors an authoritarian leader who routinely gives the middle finger to rational, scientific thought.

As we've discussed earlier, these folks have always been with us. And if we don't commit to swamping their ignorance in November '20, they will help to keep this country going in a very dangerous direction.
