    So we should just become slaves to the nasty right wing Oligarchs who convince idiots like boontard and yourself to constantly vote outside of your own best interests. Lets face it you will never inherit daddies fortune like your Orange god. Fucking morons.

    The dems need to field someone who can upset Trumptard. Getting republicans wound up is easy, they have dozens of candidates who can do that.

    Just find one who really pisses the Trumptard off big style, and watch him shoot himself in both feet. Once he loses it in public, he’s gone.

    No one is urging Bush to run. Bush is urging Republicans to run against Trump.

    Trump's 2020 map from hell



    Recent polling in a slew of states that carried President Trump to his thin win in 2016 show him starting 2020 in a deep hole.


    What's new: Based on demographic changes, Republicans for the first time have authentic worries about Arizona, Georgia, Texas and other states they once took for granted.


    Why it matters: Trump's margin for error this time is much smaller, because he's being squeezed from the north and the south.


    From the north: Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are harder this time because Hillary Clinton, a turnoff for many working-class voters, won't be on the ballot.

    From the south: Demographics are making North Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Arizona more competitive, and realistically in play.

    That's part of the reason for the fascination with more centrist Democrats like Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Beto O'Rourke and Joe Biden: The states that Trump won, but could easily lose, are swingy — not super-liberal.
    Among the holes in his 2016 map:


    In Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote after a statewide poll in January that Trump "has a precarious path to victory," based on the facts that his job approval was just 44%, opposition was more intense than support, and Democrats were more unified than Republicans.

    In Michigan, the Detroit Free Press reports that Trump faces "serious headwinds": "Less than half of likely voters believe he’s doing a good job, according to some recent polls, and many, if not most, plan to vote for someone else."
    "Pennsylvania meltdown triggers Republican alarms," Politico wrote after the midterms. "A GOP collapse threatens to torpedo Donald Trump’s re-election prospects."

    In last weekend's Iowa Poll, 67% of Republicans said they would definitely vote to re-elect Trump, while 27% said they would consider someone else or definitely vote for someone else. 40% want a GOP challenger.

    But Trump allies tell me their 2016 upsets reduce their current worry:

    "He’s basically where he was and, depending on the poll, possibly better than where he was going into the 2016 general election," a current adviser said. "I wouldn’t say this is a bad place to be."

    "Democrats will go through exactly what Republicans did in 2016," added an alumnus of Trump's campaign and White House. "The question is where they can coalesce around a single candidate — not sure that’s possible with all the differing factions."
    Be smart: "I’d sooner be the Dems than Trump," David Axelrod, Obama's campaign architect, told me. "He drew an inside straight in 2016 with narrow wins in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. He is vulnerable today in each, with no obvious prospect of adding a state to his column in 2020."


    But Axelrod added: "[P]residents often run better against an opponent than they do in the abstract, and Trump does have a kind of feral genius for caricaturing his foes and dominating the media."

    It’s a concern that, while the Republicans have only one obvious candidate, the Democrats have a bit of a mixed bag of offerings, with no clear and obvious champion.
    Trump is certainly a serious liability for the country, but his media savvy, however desperate, marks him out with most of the electorate who are able to get themselves to the vote.

    The strategy is obvious. Line up as many contenders as possible to methodically slice off bits of flesh from Trump's carcass. They have so much ammo to use against him. It will be great to watch.

    beto raised over $6 million in the 24 hours after he announced he was running.

    that's obviously a shitload of money for one day....his supporters are all in.

    How Democrats can beat Donald Trump in 2020

    2020 US Presidential Race-9118982-3x2-940x627-jpg
    John Podesta was the chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 election campaign

    "I think that what the Democratic candidates need to do is two things:

    • one is to continue to make the case that [Donald Trump] is temperamentally unfit and unqualified to be president, that he's made bad judgments, that he ran as a populist but he governs as a plutocrat … I think it's kind of easy in his case because he proves it every day.
    • Then you have to a provide a positive alternative, that you can get the economy going for the middle and for the bottom … But ultimately I think what Democratic voters are looking for is 'who can take this guy on?', 'who can get him out of the Oval Office?', who can get the country back on the path of inclusive values, and we have some exciting candidates who I think are going to be able to do that."


    "I would say right now there's sort of three tiers of candidates.
    You have at the top Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, they both suffer from the fact that Biden's 76 [years old] and Bernie's 78 … There's another group that have sort of busted out of the pack as it were, Kamala Harris, Beto [O'Rourke], they've added a lot of excitement to the race.

    I'd put Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker probably in that tier.
    Then there are a lot of people [who] are accomplished, people like Kirsten Gillibrand, Governor [John] Hickenlooper, Julian Castro the former successful mayor of San Antonio — but they're all kind of sitting around one per cent in the national polls and in the state polls."

    I don't think there's any point in worrying about who is leading the polls now.

    ^ Sorry Harry


    Poll: Sanders, Biden tied for first as O'Rourke gains among Dem voters




    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden are the top choices among Democratic voters, with former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) getting a bump after announcing his White House bid, according to a new Emerson poll.




    Sanders and Biden each garnered 26 percent in the survey conducted March 17-18, a 9-point bump for Sanders since the February poll and after his official campaign announcement.

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) followed with 12 percent, and O'Rourke had 11 percent, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) rounding out the top five at 8 percent. O’Rourke’s support is also up from February, increasing 7 points.

    Sanders leads among both 18- to 29-year-olds, with 42 percent, and among 30- to 49-year-olds, with 30 percent support.

    Biden, meanwhile, leads among respondents 50 to 64 years old, with 39 percent and among those 65 or older, with 33 percent.

    Sanders has just called for the US to follow the NZ example and ban semi-autos etc. a commonsense move that would save countless lives...

    So it'll probably cost him any election. Because the US.

    Crims ain't turnin' their guns in. They're called criminals for a reason. They don't give a shit about laws. You think all those guns disappear when Congress passes a law?

    Thank you for parroting NRA Talking Point #12.

    Meanwhile... 'Since 1970, more than 1.45 million people have died from guns, which is more than in all the wars in American history (1.4 million). Every day in the US, another 100 people die from gun violence and 300 more are injured, and the country now has more guns than people'.

    That's what decisive action and real leadership looks like.
