Who Beats Out Sanders Other Than Biden?
A Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday found that 25 percent of Democrats said they would back Michelle Obama in the party primary over nine other declared or potential candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas). 5% error in Democrat only questioned.
Cited reasons for her being a top choice? She is mostly an unknown, never a candidate, never been on a ballot, avoided a candidate’s public scrutiny, always seems nice, etc. People love her for who she has been, what she has said, and what she exemplifies. There is nothing bad about her. The closest to her, Biden is a real trip and has been in the pocket of Delaware Bankers forever. He personally sponsored bills which have created much of the student loan debt issues today and he comes right out and says it is the student’s fault. The old “I got mine, now you get yours” routine. Biden is as bad as the Bush’s for politics and being beholden.
Hell, I would vote for Michelle.
“She is mostly an unknown, never a candidate, never been on a ballot, avoided a candidate’s public scrutiny, always seems nice, etc.”
So, I should run for president?
Was Trump ever any of those?
She wouldn’t have to go far to find experienced advisors. That puts her one step above the other candidates.
Too soon to commit; let it play out a while.
In ’20 I will not vote for an incumbent, Michelle Obama is too close to incumbency.
Rule 1. Checks and balances on presidential power.
Rule 2. Term limits.
Rule 3. Ban on gifts, emoluments, and other ways of foreign powers exerting influence on domestic and international policy.
Rule 4. No dynastic presidency.
As time goes by, I just cannot wrap my head around any of these polls. The idea that Biden is near the top of these things means to me that they are almost worthless.
I simply cannot believe he could win the nomination under any circumstances. Unfortunately, these polls might convince him to run and that is not a good thing for anyone.
I believe both he and Bernie need to step aside and allow the next cadre to come into being even if it is a Warren who I believe is better in the Senate. I was thinking of someone more like Tony Lip who seemed to understand the down and out. 🙂
