Paul Begala on CNN just made an interesting point about Biden "collapsing":

He said "back in April when he announced, he was at 28, today he's at 28. Everyone's waiting for Biden to collapse, it isn't happening."

(not a word-for-word quote)

Actually the numbers are slightly different:

On April 24 he was at 29.3, his closest rival was at 23.0
Today he's at 28.3, his closest rival is at 20.6

In April BS was in second place, today Warren is in second place. But he's actually extended his lead from 6.3 to 7.7.

To think just over the weekend some here were saying his campaign was collapsing and he should drop out. Ooops!

I remember when we nominated Kerry because he was safe and Dean wasn't electable.

Going with who can get elected is good. I just don't know a better way to see who that actually is without going through the process.

That some folks seem to be trying so hard to push this theme, indicates to me a sense of insecurity in the candidate they are supporting

5. As usual, Begala is not reliable

 

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html

Begala is comparing figures to just before Biden announced - when he was not an official candidate.

After Biden announced, he got a big bounce through May, June & July where he was roughly +15 or so.

Since then, it has narrowed to the point where Warren caught him and then fell back some since in part due to Warren's position on M4A.

I like Joe & Elizabeth. Joe's campaign has had some significant problems - beyond fund raising.

It may be why Bloomberg is jumping in and Holder is thinking about it.

8. The claim about those numbers is false

 

Again, the first numbers were cherry picked from polls before Biden announced and was a candidate
Look at the graph in that link of what happened after he announced.
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html
And that is not one outlier poll - it is all of them.

Biden may yet prevail. But he is not nearly in as good a position as he was.
His poor 3rd qty fundraising tells us that. And so does the narrowing of these polls.
He's slipped to 4th in Iowa. (In April Biden led Warren 25 to 7)
He's second to Warren +4 in NH. (In April, Biden led Warren by 13)
He's losing to Warren in California. (In April Biden led Warren 26 to 7)
A month ago, Warren had caught him over all.
This race has significantly tightened up.

In January 2008, Hillary had a 21+ point lead.
Nearly three times the lead Biden has now.
How did that turn out?

This primary is far from over.

13. She caught him by point 2 of a percent in an aggregate that ignored one important poll's results

 

or had miscalculated it—which is why her lead did not last. She has only begun to be challenged.
As to fund raising, Biden’s October was terrific.

He’s leading in the states that matter. He’s leading in the national. He’s leading in national match-ups with Trump.

15. Hillary was in a much stronger position than Joe on Jan 2, 2008 +21.6

 

She had held a commanding lead over Obama and everyone else since the outset of the campaign - back to 2006.

Just 40 days later, on Feb 13, 2008, Obama gained 21.9 points and passed her for good.

A key was Obama winning Iowa. That got him more air time and national media notice, etc. The rest is history. Warren, Sanders & Buttigieg are all looking like they will beat Biden in Iowa. They seem better organized there.

I do not see an Obama in the field. Some might

but relative to the leader, Warren is much better positioned at this juncture than Obama was

Biden is down to a 7.7 point lead more than two months sooner than Hillary - before the voting has even started. That's a lean - not likely or safe.

I think the world of Joe. But this primary is a long way from being over. He's far more vulnerable than Hillary was in 2008.

20. In early 2008, Hillary had significantly more support from blacks than Obama

 

CNN did a segment on it in January 2008.
But then they flipped to Obama. They were a significant segment of the 22 point swing.

This time around, black leaders have cautioned that black support is fluid.
They have said the other candidates are starting to interest them.

Sanders has very good favorability numbers with blacks - just not as good as the Clintons or Biden.

But some of the fluidity is starting to show:
Elizabeth Warren endorsed by group of black women activists
https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/07/politics/elizabeth-warren-endorsement-black-women-activists/index.html

If Eric Holder joins Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, that is going to siphon away some black support - as blacks get aware of their candidacy. Many blacks do not know them yet.

This is a real horse race. Biden is in the lead but there is a long, long way to go.

21. Yes, she is endorsed by "black Womxn for," a very progressive activist group of black trans,

 

non-binary, non-gender specific women who, although they represent not only their own community’s concerns, but those of the larger black communities, are not that larger electorate Warren needs far greater support from.

And no, Bernie’s AA support is not at all as good as Clinton’s or his CURRENT rival, Biden’s. I do not find that surprising. He has not worked at building relationships with black leaders and communities. Neither has Warren.

Everything is fluid at this point.

Black voters certainly know Corey Booker and Kamala Harris.

24. You are being too dismissive of Warren

 

The primaries are a dynamic process. Things change.

Compare the polls done by Quinnipiac or ABC/WaPo from last April 30-June 2019 to their most recent.
Look at Warren's numbers with blacks. They're up dramatically. At a glance, she's taken a bunch from Sanders and maybe a little from Joe.

I'd go so far as to say: if Sanders has another health issue and drops out (I like Bernie so I do not want that to happen), I think Warren would take the lead.

If Bloomberg joins in, I think he'll draw more from Joe - who enjoys support from older folks - and that will tighten things up.

Those are just more examples of how volatile this race could be.

46. I truly like and support all of them

 

No one would be any happier if Buttigieg took off from Iowa and won like Obama. I'm very impressed with him. But if we're comparing to 2008, Warren is in Obama's polling position more than Pete is. Warren is making inroads with winning some black support. Pete not so much.

Pete's my favorite but I have to try to keep it real. He's kind of leading the second tier of candidates and in need of some media magic. Today's media is too fractured and messed up to have high expectations that he can pull off what Obama did - starting from a weaker position at this point. He's a very capable speaker and has a wonderful mind and attitude but he's not the great orator Obama was. I'm hoping for the best but realize this may not be his year.

47. I supported Bernie in 2016 - I'll like him forever

 

Bernie and Elizabeth seem to be fighting for a bunch the same voters.
Both have the support of youth.
Elizabeth seems to have taken a bunch of Bernie's support from blacks.

If they consolidated the support they both have (maybe by one of them dropping out - I'm not suggesting that - just kicking thoughts around), they could beat Biden in the primary.

But Biden has stronger support with the 50+ crowd. For the general election, Bernie or Elizabeth might be better off with a running mate that appeals to the 50+ folks to compliment and augment their appeal. Joe's already done that job so I doubt it would appeal to him.

Biden with Elizabeth as VP would be a heck of a team following that thinking ... they compliment each other demographically pretty well.

49. If Joe were younger, he'd do it for the country

 

He's a patriot.
I think he was the best VP of my lifetime.
He wasn't a lapdog. He challenged Barack debating issues.
But he found a wonderful balance between his policy positions, his loyalties, his values and friendship to best serve his country.

There isn't a President who sat in that Oval office who would have been ill served by someone like Joe as their VP.

Elizabeth or Bernie would be very lucky to find someone like that.

If Joe took the job, the only way it would not end well would be due to his health - that he developed some problem.Joe would put the country first like he proved with Obama. But he's been there and done that. Someone else deserves a shot ... to groom them to take over in 8 years

59. So far, Biden isn't even set to win IA (tied for 3rd) or NH (tied for 2nd) based on current polling.

 

Which could set him up to losing SC as well. If polling is correct, Warren will win NH and IA which sets her up well for SC, NV and the Super Tuesday states.

60. And so you hope. Personally, I don't know how much SC voters will be guided by IA or NH results.

 

As progressives remind us, the political landscape it is a changin’, and that means rising awareness that two little white states do not represent our electorate’s diversity, so don’t deserve to be regarded as bellwethers anymore— if they ever did.

42. I much prefer that Biden has 8 years of excellent

 

experience as a valued Vice President under President Obama.

And, he's the best one to beat trump and that is Priceless!

43. Yes, there is that little item on his resume, not the winner of 23 primaries, but a heartbeat

 

away from the presidency for eight years, during which time he gave such impressive service to Obama (and the country) that our best-loved president awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom with distinction.

45. Well put! I like what you you

 

said about ".. a heartbeat away from the Presidency.." That certainly does put it in perspective and President Obama knew that, too.. he chose his VP wisely and was not disappointed.. Obama would not have awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction if he did not think Joe Biden had earned it.

41. Biden has much better experience and more qualifications

 

to be President than BS.

That's what counts.. and Biden is by far the better candidate to beat trump.. and that's another thing that counts the most.

40. So?.. since then as you may have heard he's

 

been a valued Vice President under President Obama and accrued years of excellent, invaluable experience, and qualifications to be President.

57. Not logically relevant

 

in any given election, the people running are different. One could equally say Bernie lost once, why wouldn't he lose again.

56. Yes. Pushing this "collapse" theme is an agenda identifier for most.

 

Sure, some honest sources feel they have to use it in headlines because it is prevailing, but all who don't follow that with honest coverage we know by their actions. At best venal, but most are trying to keep Republicans in power and make money.

And, of course, there are the LW radicals and scorpions who prefer to lose everything rather than allow mainstream liberal Democrats to win.
