New Alabama Senate and Presidential polls

Here's the Republican primary Senate polls. Looks like our best hope at winning, Roy Moore, is way behind:

And here's the General Election polls, against Doug Jones:

Alabama Senate - Sessions vs. Jones: Sessions 54, Jones 41 - Sessions +13
Alabama Senate - Tuberville vs. Jones: Tuberville 50, Jones 42 - Tuberville +8
Alabama Senate - Byrne vs. Jones: Byrne 51, Jones 42 - Byrne +9

Not looking good at all.


Now, here's the General Election President's race polls. Not for the faint of heart, although Bloomberg does best:

Alabama: Trump vs. Sanders: Trump 60, Sanders 37 - Trump +23
Alabama: Trump vs. Buttigieg: Trump 58, Buttigieg 37 - Trump +21
Alabama: Trump vs. Bloomberg: Trump 54, Bloomberg 40 - Trump +14
Alabama: Trump vs. Biden: Trump 58, Biden 38 - Trump +20
Alabama: Trump vs. Warren: Trump 62, Warren 35 - Trump +27


Bernie Sanders projected to win New Hampshire primary: NBC News

Bernie Sanders will win Tuesday’s New Hampshire Democratic primary, NBC News projected, setting him up near the top of a fractured presidential field.

The Vermont senator will edge out former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota will come in third, according to NBC.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Vice President Joe Biden were vying for fourth place as final results came in. Neither candidate will reach the 15% threshold needed to win pledged delegates, statewide and in both of its congressional districts.

The victory gives Sanders an early boost in the push for the Democratic presidential nomination after he left the Iowa caucuses with the second-most pledged national delegates in the field. The process now enters a series of generally larger, more diverse states, where the Vermont senator has outperformed Buttigieg and Klobuchar in polls.

Congrats to Bernie. Pete and Klobuchar did excellent as well.

Let's say John Roberts stays on as Chief Justice another 16 years

Entirely possible, since he’d be 81. Well, if he does last that long on the Court, that will mean that we would have a Right-Wing Chief Justice for 50 freaking years!!! Are we kidding? As it stands now, it’s been 34 years of Rehnquist/Roberts as Chief Justice. Ridiculous!

FiveThirtyEight now says Sanders has a 49% chance of winning the Democratic nomination

Interesting. In second place is Biden with a 17% chance.


John McCain's mother Roberta McCain turns 108 today

This is actually quite incredible. If she lives another two years, she will join an elite crew known as supercenturions. Even as it is now, she is probably one on the top 500 oldest humans on the planet. Not sure of her politics, but wishing her a happy birthday. Many more.

Pelosi rips up Trump speech at conclusion of State of the Union

Source: The Hill

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump's prepared remarks at the conclusion of his State of the Union address.

As Trump finished speaking and most lawmakers stood to applaud, Pelosi stood, took the printed copy of Trump's speech and tore it in half. She placed the shredded copy in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress.

The moment capped a tense address from Trump that started when the president appeared to snub Pelosi's offer of a handshake.

Pelosi largely seemed to avoid looking at Trump throughout the address, instead reading from his prepared remarks and scanning the room.

Nancy just motioned something to her right

I’m not sure, but it looked like she was telling someone to stop? Happened roughly 3 minutes ago. It was when Trump was talking about appointments my Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

Iowa Democratic vote-reporting meltdown hands opening to Trump

Source: CNN

The Democratic 2020 crusade to oust President Donald Trump could not have got off to a more disastrous and embarrassing start.

The party couldn't even deliver a first-in-the-nation election night winner after a vote-reporting debacle in Iowa — where candidates spent months and millions of dollars vying for a glittering opening prize in their nominating duel.

"Iowa, you have shocked the nation," said former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. It was a bold attempt to declare victory in the absence of a result, but the 38-year-old inadvertently cast an ironic judgment on a political train wreck.

The big Hawkeye State miss will be agonizing for whoever comes out on top but for any candidates who under performed -- perhaps former Vice President Joe Biden -- it might turn into a priceless lifeline.

I have never seen anything like this. Hopefully, this all gets sorted out by later this morning at the latest.

Derek Jeter, Larry Walker elected to baseball Hall of Fame

Source: MSN

NEW YORK (AP) -- Derek Jeter came within one vote of being a unanimous pick for the Hall of Fame while Larry Walker also earned baseball's highest honor on Tuesday.

The longtime New York Yankees captain appeared on 396 of 397 ballots cast by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, falling just shy of the standard set when longtime Yankees teammate Mariano Rivera became the first unanimous selection last year. Jeter's 99.7% moved above Ken Griffey Jr. (99.3%) for the second-highest.

"I was speechless when I got the call," Jeter said. "Quite frankly, I was pretty nervous, and when I got it I really didn't know what to say."

It was not immediately known which voter didn't choose Jeter, who was listed on all 219 ballots made public before the announcement. The BBWAA will release additional ballots on Feb. 4 of writers who chose a public listing.
