July 21 Poll Report

 

            Good morning everybody.  Yesterday’s poll involved two candidates a little below 1% and two candidates around 3%, so there was not a lot at stake in that contest.  The two "serious" candidates, the three-percenters, were Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke.  Gillibrand stole ten percentage points from O’Rourke’s expected vote share to win the day:

            Gillibrand was also in the old poll, removed from the data, the poll of May 31; the removal of that poll also helped her a little, so she was the day’s big winner.   Since yesterday:

            Kirsten Gillibrand is up 16 points as a result of the combined effects of yesterday’s poll and the removal of the May 31 poll.

            Michael Bennet continues his charge, moving up another 13 points as a result of the removal of the May 31 poll from the data considered relevant.

            Cory Booker is down 11 points as a result of the removal of the May 31 poll; however, Booker is doing very well in the poll which is currently running, and will probably be back up tomorrow.

            Beto O’Rourke is down 12 points as a result of his underperformance in yesterday’s poll. 

            Did any of these guys appear on the Sunday morning shows?   I missed those shows this morning; went to church.  I guess I’ll see them on the clips.

            It is a shame there isn’t anyone named "Rhodes" running for the office; we could have the Gravel-Rhodes ticket.  Thanks for reading.

Did he over pronounce his words back then as well?

We shouldn't be too hard on Booker though. He is pushing the Green New Deal to save the world. You know, like how the brave souls who confronted the Nazis in World War II saved the world.

If nominated I'm sure the media will tell me how "gifted" a politician Booker is.

I served on a charity board with Booker. He is a smooth guy with a titanic ego and worse temper. He was busted for manufacturing stories from his past "google "T-Bone" and left Newark, where he was mayor, more of a shambles than he found it, which you would think was utterly impossible.

Once scrutinized, he certainly will be an anvil around the neck of the Dems, whether he leads a ticket or is Veep, in the rural and suburban areas of the battleground states.

The campaign is very important for Booker, being a matter of good versus evil. Last year he said he told Brett Kavanaugh:

“You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it.”

Booker even got his Spartacus moment wrong. The documents he said he was disclosing against the rules had been approved for release. A Bush representative told him at 4 am that morning that the documents had been cleared.

Whoever wins next year, we’ll still be stuck with a grandstanding demagogue.

The fact that we don't see an Obama-like talent hiding in the crowd doesn't mean he or she isn't there. We could easily miss it with this many candidates.

Glad to know about Booker on Face the Nation. He is over-performing quite significantly in the poll which is currently running. That probably explains it. Thanks.

Cory Booker was on Face the Nation and State of the Union. I only watched the Face interview; it was mostly about Trump v The Squad.

Steve Bullock was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Bullock is left-center, pushed back against Medicare for All, giving unlimited health care to illegal immigrants and decriminalizing border crossings. I've said it before; Bullock would beat Trump handily. He's 53 years old, good age for a candidate. Dems are missing out by not taking a closer look at him.

For whatever it's worth, two of the last three Democratic Presidents have been governors of red states that were relative unknowns 16 months before the election (Carter and Clinton). The other (Obama) was an extraordinary political talent. I don't see any Obamas in this crop.

Bernie Sanders campaign after campaign workers demanded to be paid $15 per hour:


"...we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked."


And who said Bernie wasn't a capitalist?
