I think, the truth is, Bernie relatively easily wins a 1-on-1 primary against anybody. Probably Clinton-Sanders levels at the least.

Facebooks policing of free speech would probably be a liability for him

I'm pretty sure he has to do that in countries like Germany, where hate speech and pro-Nazi speech is illegal.

And that's not even talking about places like Russia.

As for whether he has a path, it's a similar path to Trump, just he has to spend a lot more, and he might have more trouble in the general, especially if Trump is still on the ballot as Trump supporters probably will turn out against a rich Jewish guy like Zuckerberg.

Turn out against a rich Jewish guy? Idk I don't think Jared and Ivanka depress turnout. And hating on the Jews seems to be a big thing on the left now with the anti-Israel rhetoric and pro-Islam tendencies

It's definitely there on the Left, though it manifests itself around Israel, not religion. The GOP is a religious/theocratic party with an anti-non-Christian Evangelical base.

I will say that with public transit in and around NYC coming to a breaking point, and with angst among Democratic voters about lots of things in NYC, a primary challenge could be potent.

"Progressives" will never rally around a woman to challenge a centrist man, not seriously (if she even runs to the left).

Teachout though?

IIRC, that was like a 3-week protest movement. Never treated seriously.

Meh kinda yes kinda no. Cuomo ran ads for the primary, especially for his LG but for himself as well. She also got some union, activist, and elected official endorsements. Overall got 34% against his 62%.

I think he wants a path to the nomination appear and will run if it does. He's not my preferred candidate right now, but I want to say this: for those who don't want him to run, just defeat him in the primary. But let's not be offended by anyone's mere looking at the 2020 primaries yet. We have this tendency in the left to try to pre-litigate and destroy potential candidates and it's horrible.

If Warren or Sanders get the nomination, I stay home on election day.

Don't be like that. People died for the right to vote.

To be clear, is TONIGHT at midnight, "THE" big vote on Trumpcare?

Maybe. We've heard Midnight and We've also heard 3 AM. We'll just have to see.

Right, regardless of timing, is this THE bill though?

41  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democratic Primary Fight: Bernie Sanders vs. Joe Biden on: July 27, 2017, 05:20:47 pm

My best guess:
Green = Sanders
Yellow = Biden

Sanders victory

This plus Ohio and maybe Arizona

Possibly. I think Bernie 2020 could be like Trump 2016 in the sense that lots of other good candidates run too but at the end of the day Bernie basically runs away with it

Bernie defeated his primary challengers and general election challenger overwhelmingly

What pushes me to ask this question is his staunch support from those who purport to be pious.
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Is Donald J. Trump fundamentally a good person? on: July 26, 2017, 05:33:41 pm
...based on whatever your definition of good is. I think the answer is obvious. A lot of my GOP friends who voted for him acknowledge he's fundamentally a terrible man.

What time is the vote expected today for the MTP. Then, when doe debates/speeches start? Then, when is the actual vote for this filth bill?

In Review: 2018 Midterm Elections


Senate: Democrats gained 2 seats and Republicans gained 0 seats. Democrat Jackie Rosen defeated Republican Danny Tarkanian who defeated incumbent Sen. Dean Heller in Nevada, and Democrat Mark Kelly defeated Republican Kelli Ward, who defeated incumbent Republican Jeff Flake in a primary.

House: Democrats won 23 House seats and lost 1 House seat, with a net gain of 22 Democratic seats, falling just short of winning the House. Trump and the GOP promoted this result as a victory.

Gubernatorial: Democrats won gubernatorial races in GOP-held or open seat with a GOP predecessor in: Maine, Maryland, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, New Mexico and Kansas.

**I'm happy to provide specific info on any race**

NEXT POST: Election results!
