Spartacus is on the TV, promising basically everybody everything, obviously a few things that make sense but they tend to be lost in all the other crap.

Everybody gets Healthcare, everybody gets Citizenship, everybody gets everything.

Equal Pay, I thought that was a law.

A lot of it is contradictory, he is going to pass the Equality Act but does not seem to understand the consequences.

Will be defending human rights around the world.

Gift to show their misogyny, I presume.

I do not watch Fox but will take your word for it. She is to be fair a very easy target.

I personally hope she becomes massively a bit more realistic/less naive.
I appreciate her passion to help people but as Pelosi said, she needs votes, not Twitter followers.
She's easy on the eye too.

(Quite partial to the fruits of my own hard earned labor though. Plans for them.)

Apropos of a conversation in another thread ...

Politico did a decent article explaining how the DNC plans to manage the debates with the 12,000 Democrats who have announced their candidacy:

Bill Maher tickled me recently when he said the Democratic nomination was no longer a horse race so much as the running of the bulls. What are we up to now, 25?

With de Blasio we are up to 24, I think.

A number of people have said to me that they think none of the current pack has a chance and that the winner has yet to enter.

That wouldn’t surprise me. I haven’t seen anyone thus far who would be a credible threat to Trump so long as the US economy keeps growing

Perhaps you should pay more attention to polls. This exerpt from todays Washington Post might enlighten you. Trumps previous support is fading fast and hard.

"All of this should worry the president, since the Fox News poll finds that Biden would trounce Trump in a general election, 49 percent to 38 percent. Sanders has only a 5 point lead, which is close to being within the margin of error. Interestingly, in none of the head-to-head match-ups listed in the poll (vs. Biden, Sanders, Harris, Warren or Buttigieg) does Trump get more than 41 percent of the vote. If that remains his ceiling, he’s in deep, deep trouble.

Speaking of Polls, it looks like the polling industry has finally woken up and smelled the coffee ...

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...n-race-1335087

Fewer Americans than ever are willing to pick up the phone and talk to pollsters, sending costs skyrocketing to roughly double what they were four years ago. Despite enjoying a largely successful 2018 election, pollsters are furiously experimenting to fill the void left by the slow failure of the telephone poll, looking at everything from internet-based solutions to snail mail.

How can this be a 'discovery' in 2019? I don't know anyone who still answers the phone to strangers (unknown numbers). Surely that fact alone should make pollsters realize they aren't getting a good 'cross section' or 'random' sample.
