Biden: Trump down by 15
Sanders: Trump down by 15
Warren: Trump down by 7
Harris: Trump down by 7
Buttigieg: Trump down by 4

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/democra ... d=65415134

For reference, here is how the ABC News Washington Post did with respect to the past four Presidential elections:

That poll's point estimate was within 2 percentage points with respect to the margin all four times. If you look at something like Biden and Sanders being up by 15 over Trump right now in that poll along with Warren and Harris being up 7 and think "the polls are wrong" you are kidding yourself. If Trump was running against any of those four candidates right now he would lose the popular vote.

I also think it's unlikely he'd win the Electoral vote. Especially against Biden or Sanders. It is theoretically possible for a candidate to lose the popular vote by double digits and win the Electoral College but I sure wouldn't bet on it.

And that is a good thing. He never was a Democrat, he is a Socialist, at least Warren claims to be a Dem, even though she is probably as much as a Socialist as Bernie.

Why not give the Socialists a chance at running the country? They couldn't possibly do worse. All we've heard for decades is how we need a bidniz man to run the country like a bidniz. Thank the gods we won't have to listen to that silly-ass shit anymore.

What do you mean? I've been pleasantly surprised by how well things have gone under Trump. I'm no fan of Trump but I prefer the last 2+ years to the previous 16.

God Klobuchar is so goofy and awkward I feel sorry for her in the way I feel sorry for the little girl who forgot her piece at a piano recital

She’s the least furthest to the left of any of them though. And she’s not willing to “evolve” the way Biden is

If I could pick the one among those in the Democratic Party primaries race that I would find most acceptable as President she would be it.

Define “egregious”. :roll:

He supports (and has a very detailed plan for) a universal basic income of $1,000/month for every adult over the age of 18.

Sorry but that’s a deal killer for me.

Worse than Medicare for all?

Yang makes a very libertarian pitch for UBI. It has some predictable disadvantages but overall Yang articulates it convincingly


You should check out his policy positions - his biggest liabilities are over things that can’t happen... like Medicare for all-

On trade policy he came right out and said he wouldn’t immediately drop the tariff on China

On foreign policy he’s noninterventionist

TBH, I think Yang is too smart for the electorate he’s trying to woo

If I were a Republican she'd be the one I'd consider a dangerous sleeper. The awkward-as-a-bear cub facade conceals a work horse and don't forget her smackdown of Kavanaugh - she had that sissy bitch sniveling on national TV.
