And in what world should a possible president commit to never deport anybody ever? A ridiculous position.

A ridiculous answer to an impractical, loaded question.

Bloomberg Takes Untested Path to 2020, Skipping Key Contests

 

Quote

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s late entry into the presidential race highlights the deep philosophical divide animating the Democratic contest – putting his experience, his reputation and his fortune behind the argument that a pragmatic centrist pledging competent government is what’s needed to take down an unconventional president.

 

Quote

Bloomberg has added another layer of complications, saying he doesn’t plan to compete in the early nominating contests like Iowa and New Hampshire and will focus on delegate-rich California and other states voting on the March 3 Super Tuesday contests and beyond.

 

I feel Giuliani competed like this, but as the article states, Giuliani didn't have the money Bloomberg has.

Also, it doesn't look as if any of us posted this: Bloomberg apologizes for Stop-And-Frisk

 

Quote

In the days since Bloomberg said, “I was wrong,” for pushing stop and frisk, Peart, 31, said he has heard reactions from elected leaders, community activists and civil liberties lawyers, everybody except the people who have actually been stopped and frisked.
 

What’s missing from the discussion, Peart said, is the ongoing impact the policy had on people like him.
 

The birthday stop wasn’t Peart’s first stop and frisk encounter. His scariest moment came in 2011 when he was stopped outside his Harlem apartment while he was on his way to the store. Two cops jumped out of an unmarked car and ordered him to put his hands up against a wall. Then they pulled his wallet and keys out of his pocket before asking him what building he had just left.

One of the officers asked which of the keys opened his apartment, where his 18-year-old sister was inside with two younger siblings. When the cop tried the key, his sister called him, but the police had his phone, and he couldn’t answer. Meanwhile, Peart was cuffed and searched and asked if he had marijuana. After a while, they explained that someone who fit his description was ringing doorbells in the building where he lived. They let him go.

 

Quote

“You don’t stop crime by stopping someone who has no intention of committing a crime,” Peart said. “Stopping someone on their way to work, on their way to school, on their way to the gym, that’s not stopping crime. You can’t stop someone for wearing a red hoodie. I can’t just be going to the supermarket?”

Is there are reason for Warren's drop over the last couple of months? She went from tied with Biden for the lead on 10-8-19 to 11 points behind and below Sanders today. We are pretty much back to late August numbers for the leaders.

She's gotten some critical coverage, and it turns out she's not Bernie without the socialist label, and there are dumber centrist candidates to hitch yourself to if you are ok with that

There have also been no primaries/caucuses, which will turn all those national polls on their head.

 

Currently, it's Buttigieg-Warren-Sanders-Biden in Iowa as far as leaders, with Klobuchar a distant 5th.

Well the dream was nice while it lasted (both America as a whole and Warren as a candidate):

 

Warren tanks and Buttigieg surges. Biden stays in lead.

 

Quote

Biden: 24% (+3)
Buttigieg: 16% (+6)
Warren: 14% (-14)
Sanders: 13% (-2)
Harris: 3% (-2)
Klobuchar: 3% (-)
Yang: 2% (+1)
Booker: 2% (+1)
Castro: 2% (+1)⁰
Gabbard: 1% (-)

 

And bad news for M4A and progressive politics as a whole:

 

Quote

Medicare for All has grown increasingly unpopular among all American voters, as 36 percent say it is a good idea and 52 percent say it is a bad idea. In a March 26, 2019 poll, 43 percent said good idea, while 45 percent said bad idea. The highest support came in an August 3, 2017 poll when voters said it was a good idea 51 - 38 percent.

 

As the Democratic candidates debate over the direction of the party, only 14 percent of Democrats and independent voters who lean Democratic say that President Obama was "not liberal enough," while 80 percent say he was "about right."

 

The right-wing infobubble (fueled now in part by Russian subterfuge implicitly supported by the right-wing) is basically impenetrable. Man, the US is really fucked.

I can't decide which is more shocking.. Biden going up +3 somehow or that Buttigieg is actually in second place nationally in this poll.

It's been a 4 way race for a couple weeks already.

 

Also, M4A used to be vague. Now it's seen as clearly single-payer. It was bound to lose support.
