CNN Poll - Biden 43%; Sanders 13%; Harris 12% ** Best Chance to Beat Trump **


Cf Paragraph 11

Also was reported live on CNN

*** New (B+ Rated) Emerson College Poll *** Biden 34% (up 1), Bernie 24% (up 2), Warren 14% (up 4)

Joe Biden continues to hold his announcement bounce, and has gained a point since May – now holding 34% of the vote, followed by Senator Bernie Sanders who moved up 2 points to 27%.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has broken away from the rest of those running, into 3rd place – improving from 10% of the vote up to 14%. Senator Kamala Harris comes in fourth with 7%, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is in fifth with 6%, and Senator Cory Booker follows in sixth with 3% of the vote.

All other candidates poll at 1% or lower. The data was collected June 21-24, and has a margin of error of +/-4.5% for the Democratic primary.


*** N.B. that this poll was taken during the days after the smear attacks on Biden

I am looking forward to seeing the new Morning Consult Poll - I predict that Joe

will continue to dominate...

Cory is full of it -he applauds MLK for "loving" a segregationist but is hammering Biden for working

alongside Eastland.



“Don’t be one of those people I catch calling our president nasty names,” Booker said.
“I’m serious. How can you think that you’re going to beat darkness by stealing darkness? If Nelson Mandela can love his jailers, if Martin Luther King can love Bull Connor—we’ve got to be people of love!”



Theophilus Eugene Connor (July 11, 1897 – March 10, 1973), known as Bull Connor, was an American politician who served as an elected Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama, for more than two decades. He strongly opposed activities of the American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Under the city commission government, Connor had responsibility for administrative oversight of the Birmingham Fire Department and the Birmingham Police Department, which also had their own chiefs.

Connor enforced legal racial segregation and denied civil rights to black citizens, especially during the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's Birmingham campaign of 1963. He became an international symbol of institutional racism. Bull Connor directed the use of fire hoses and police attack dogs against civil rights activists; child protestors were also subject to these attacks.[2][3] National media broadcast these tactics on television, horrifying much of the country. The outrages served as catalysts for major social and legal change in the Southern United States and contributed to passage by the United States Congress of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.[4]

African American South Carolinians weigh in on Biden's comments (Report by CNN's Martin Savidge)

Martin Savidge: "Everybody we talked to said that Joe Biden's words did not change their opinion of him..."


CNN'S Don Lemon: I understand what Joe Biden was trying to say * Video *

Don talked about how his mother believes that "the woke" will end up waking up the next morning with Trump being re-elected if they continue along this path.

He also said that candidates should be careful to not end up looking like opportunists by attacking their true allies, for political expediency, when they should be focused on the one in the White House who has proven not to be an ally...


** NEW ** Quinnipiac Poll (A- Rated) * Florida * Joseph Biden leads Trump by 9 points

In an early look at the 2020 presidential race in Florida, former Vice President Joseph Biden leads President Donald Trump 50 - 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leads President Trump 48 - 42 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Matchups between Trump and other leading Democratic contenders are too close to call:
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 47 percent to Trump's 43 percent;
California Sen. Kamala Harris at 45 percent to Trump's 44 percent;
Former Texas U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke at 45 percent to Trump's 44 percent;
44 percent for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg to 43 percent for Trump


I can't wait for the new Morning Consult Poll - I am sure that Biden will dominate...again...

Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg to debate; Warren on separate night

Former Vice President Joe Biden will face off against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the first Democratic presidential debate this month, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appearing on a different night, NBC announced Friday.
This arrangement would leave Warren as the only top-tier candidate on stage the night of her debate. She would also not get the chance to go after either Biden or Sanders.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would also be in the debate with Biden.


Howard Schultz Announces Campaign Staff Cut - and he's still eyeing Biden as his biggest competition

Howard Schultz Announces Campaign Staff Cuts, Summer Hiatus

The Starbucks billionaire won’t make a decision on running for president until after Labor Day — and he’s still eyeing Joe Biden as his biggest competition.


“While I was in Arizona, I unfortunately experienced acute back pain that required me to cut my travels short,” he wrote. “Over the following two months, I underwent three separate back surgeries. Today, I am feeling much better, and my doctors foresee a full recovery so long as I rest and rehabilitate. I have decided to take the summer to do just that.”

Early this year, Schultz announced that he was considering running for president as a centrist independent. He had traveled around the country doing public appearances and promoting his memoir ― while facing significant criticism from some Democrats who say that his run could help President Donald Trump win a second term.
