"WASHINGTON – Sen. Bernie Sanders finished ahead of Joe Biden in the first major national poll of the year that did not find the former vice president leading the pack of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

When asked whom they would support from a list of 20 candidates – including "someone else" – 29% named Sanders, and 24% named Biden in an Emerson College poll released Monday. They were trailed by South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who was the pick of 9% of likely Democratic primary voters.

California Sen. Kamala Harris and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke each came in at 8%, and 7% picked Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro got 3%, as did entrepreneur Andrew Yang. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker got 2%, and the rest of the field got 1% or less."

So WHEN Bernie wins the Democratic Party nomination will he get support from the Greens? or will they put Jill Stein up to divide us?

Re. Bernie & Biden - ''Here’s how the DNC plans on cheating Bernie in the primaries'' ...

Many can't afford their monthly bills.

"The economy may be chugging along, but many Americans are still struggling to afford a basic middle class life.

Nearly 51 million households don't earn enough to afford a monthly budget that includes housing, food, child care, health care, transportation and a cell phone, according to a study released Thursday by the United Way ALICE Project. That's 43% of households in the United States."

From heartbreaker of an article by CNN no less:

https://money.cnn.com/2018/05/17/news/economy/us-middle-class-basics-study/index.html

If CNN is willing to report how bad it is out there you know it's actually much WORSE!

Humming economy for the wealthy and corporations, suffering for the masses.

Time to wake up people. Joe Biden is NOT the answer.

The electorate can only get younger. And, as it gets younger, it gets more accepting, and even demanding, of a diverse and more equal society.

"Younger generations narrowly outvoted baby boomers and older generations last November for the first time ever in a modern midterm election, according to an analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center."

''Indoctrinated by Econ 101'' by John Warner:

So, tho' the ''analysis by the Pew Research Center provides evidence against the long-held notion that younger generations in the U.S. don’t turn out to vote'' (from your link) ... before they do .. HOW MANY HAVE BEEN ''Indoctrinated by Econ 101''?! And now from my link, consider ...

''What if instead of Econ 101, we’d all taken the media literacy in politics course which would’ve allowed more people to more forcefully challenge the narrative that drove that debate?

''What if we’ve allowed generations of students to be indoctrinated into a belief system in ways that – as even many economics professors now believe – were fundamentally flawed?''

fiat lux!

''The White Man’s Biden'', by William Rivers Pitt:

From which ... ''Biden, who apparently hasn’t met a vicious conservative he doesn’t like and respect, stepped on a whole series of rakes over the last several days, and his standing as the establishment pick for the nomination is setting the party up for another calamity at the polls.

''Biden attended a big-dollar fundraiser at the Carlyle hotel in New York on Tuesday, one of several he graced with his presence that day. While unspooling his boilerplate spiel about “civility” and working with hidebound Republicans who are really great you guys, trust me, Delaware’s erstwhile favorite son got lost in the weeds of history, white supremacy and institutional racism.''

''Biden was in New York for one reason: To get money from rich people and as many Republican donors as he could corner during cocktails. During the event at the Carlyle Hotel, Biden promised the wealthy assemblage he would not “demonize anybody who has made money.”

“You’re not the other,” Biden told the room. “I need you very badly. I hope if I win this nomination, I won’t let you down. I promise you.” This was a reprise of the refrain he unspooled in March, when he said, “I love Bernie, but I’m not Bernie Sanders. I don’t think 500 billionaires are the reason why we’re in trouble.”

spero meliora!

Biden's subtle racism. Will it be overlooked with a younger electorate voting every year? I think not, and if he is the Dem candidate, ultimately, he will lose to Trump despite what the polls say right now imo.

"And then, there is the matter of “boy.” When used against Black men, “boy” is a racist pejorative slur meant to insult and diminish their standing as a free adult. When used against white men like Biden, “boy” is merely a noun with no ghastly history attached. Joe Biden missed the point completely, again."

Corp. Dems crave political suicide! The Dirty DNC have the rare ability to take a good idea & a popular idea such as health care for everyone & muck it up into a hot mess - until they're now on the defensive about something that should be a stone cold winner for them! Fkn Idiots!! Also, please try to consider...

Marianne Williamson's truth bombs at the Democratic Debate were fantastic! I had no idea what to expect from her but see them here:

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/6/28/18961296/marianne-williamson-democratic-debate-oprah-meme-twitter

In very few words she called out U.S. foreign policy in Latin America as the true cause of the "migrant" problem. She called out big pharma, she cited New Zealand as a beacon of hope (they are focusing now on wellness instead of profit). She backed the Green New Deal for jobs and the environment and she cited a lack of understanding of American history as a place to focus for overcoming racism.

And, yep, only the Dems can take something that the large majority of Americans want - healthcare for all! and muck it up!

(edit) She could be good advisory council to Government - but I don't see Her as being a good president.

Just like other candidates "could" make good administrators of certain Institutions/agencies that does not mean that they would make for being a good president.

Edit:

Marianne Williamson's truth bombs at the Democratic Debate were fantastic!

Good choice to head up Health & Human Services? (if she is for real?)

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (22885) 3 weeks ago

Totally agree. I don't think she will or should ever be President. I think she was there to say her truth bombs which she did well.

Heck, the American people need to hear certain things. I think that if she's for real head of HHS is not a bad idea!

Heck, the American people need to hear certain things

& often times they will only stumble across it by accident. It's why I see what I can do to perhaps catch someone who stops by these individuals twitter accounts as well as elsewhere. They certainly are NOT gonna hear or see most of what they need to hear & see from corporate owned & operated Media.

And, this forum is still important imo.

''Michael Moore on the Democrats" ...

So whyTF are U fixated on Stein & US Greens - when the clear & present danger for #Bernie2020 is

coming from right inside the rotten guts of U$A's Democraps?! The answers U seek, are in the short

video above. Welcome to The Real World as, IF DNC/2016 happens again - it will be 3rd Party time!

"History Shows Joe Biden 3.0 Is a Bad Idea!" - by William Rivers-Pitt:

It is pure propaganda to give credibility to Biden who cannot beat Trump and the Trump forces know it.

CNN & entire establishment fear one person: Bernie Sanders. He is the target because he represents

their worst nightmare - a democratically representative POTUS, with USA's 99% in his mind and heart.

Any true liberal/progressive/leftist will NOT be conned by Democraps or the Corp. CON-troll-ed MSM!

caveat emptor!
