Bloomberg is savage and is

is absolutely pummeling Trump. On air, on radio, on TV and on social media. His ads go after Trump personally. Bloomberg strikes me as a brawler. As a self made "real" billionaire my guess is he would swamp the GOP and TRUMP with relentless character and policy assasination that would be a beauity to behold. We might just need a baller in 2020. Keep it going Mike. *Since 6am I've had 2 Sanders and Biden text begging for another couple bucks)

Joe Rogan changed my life.

Joe Rogan is a good guy who just happens to have more media influence than the cable networks combined. His podcast will be downloaded 100 million times this month. Sean Hannity AND Racheal Maddow could only dream of such a following. It's funny as this Joe Rogan nonsense blew up, I was listening to 2 hours of unfiltered talk between Joe and gay strongman Ed Kearney. Joe gives a platform to everyone and allows them to talk unfiltered and it's fucking awesome. Joe changed my life two years ago. He, his guests and a brief airport encounter helped me overcome depression and health issues. I'm now fit and feeling awesome at age 47. Joe has politicians, CEO's, scientists, fitness and health experts and intellectuals along with fellow comedians and people involved in current events. His Kevin Hart podcast was gold. He allows Abby Martin to appear frequently to advocate for the plight of the Palestinians in a way she could never do on cable. He is a passionate defender of climate change and has many podcast where he talk to top scientists. Unlike cable he allows all sides to speak unfiltered. He's not corporate owned or beholden to advertisers. If you listen to him you'll clearly know he is a social liberal for the most part. He advocates for marijuana rights, gay rights and various liberal stances. To call Joe a racist is utter nonsense and evidence of your lack of listening. Joe has said some things that are crass, inappropriate and taken out context but a racist and homophobe he isn't. Joe isnt perfect and as a comedian you can go find lots of old inappropriate things from past. Joe Rogan will only flourish under this scrutiny from advocacy groups that are sometimes unreasonable. Thanks for changing my life Joe. Im.about to listen to the new Robert Downey Jr podcast while I workout.

Be careful saying 2020 will be unfair

You have the potential of suppressing voters. Will Russia meddle? Yeah. Will there be disinformation? Yeah. If we turn out, will we win? Yes! 2018 is an example. 2019 was an example.. I feel like some are already sitting up a narrative for a defeat. We learned our lesson in 2016. We turnout, in spite of, Russian bots, voter suppression attempts and social media disinformation.... We got this.

Just left our monthly Democratic Party meeting

I live in a rural area outside of Nashville. Trump stronghold. That said, we had a huge turnout. Young, old and pissed. We usually have 25-30. 90-100 attended tonight. I took a few things away. These people will support anyone. Literally anyone to defeat Trump. Consensus was not very excited about old, white people but they will support the nominee ( and this was a group of white people!). Everyone loved Pete, Bernie was a risk but they like him and Biden would probably get nomination but little real enthusiasm for him. A state party data guru was there and was very optimistic. He said Trump hasn't expanded base and He thinks a 1.5% increase in turnout will beat Trump. Just an observation from my small town.

Why doesn't our candidate's

call Trump a racist or a bigot every time they refer to him? Is it childish? Probably but Trump needs his ego bruised daily. He picks names for our candidates and belittles them daily. I get to hear Crazy Joe and Socialist Bernie on the bus daily. Why do we seem to play by rules that applied pre 2016. Beto called Trump out daily, to the camera and to his face. If you think civility will win the day in 2020, your mistaken. I would talk about his affairs, his racism, his pussy grabbing- every day. But we won't.


I'm just not sure what another debate can tell.us about these candidates. I just don't. It's like a broken record. We know where they stand, these get pathetically low viewership and it's probably not going to move the needle.

VP picks

If the primary ends up to be long and close, I could see a candidate choosing a VP early , in attempt to get some additional traction and attempt to possibly motivate a specific denographic- especially since our front runners are older and white

my fear is we have a candidate problem

Our candidates are superior but unlike Clinton or Obama, the average voter may see an election between two old white dudes. Most of the public isn't as engaged or informed as DU. Far from it. Think about 2008. Obama won in Indiana. That takes a transformative candidate to pull that off. We don't have that in 2020. We have old, career, Washington insiders. Fact. The fact that this race will be close is pretty damning. Im sorry but there is a lack of excitement about our candidates. I work in politics. A passion to beat Trump? Yes, amoung the engaged. I just don't see movement like I did with Clinton and Obama.

Census question 2020

What election cycle does the 2020 Census data effect? I've read 4 articles the last 48 hours that say states that Trump won will likely pick up 4-8 electoral votes due to population decreases in NY, CA, IL, RI and MN. Projections have TX, AZ, FL and NC all gaining. I was just curious. Upside is those states are trending Blue

Thanks Bloomberg

Trump is buying a 60 second ad during Superbowl. I want to thank Bloomberg for doing the same. Although expensive, the audience is massive. The DNC should buy one and call him a racist to his face.
