Establishment Democrats Panic as Bernie Sanders Opens Up Sizable Iowa Lead

Sanders is polling strongly in early primary and caucus states.

Establishment Democrats are panicking as Vermont socialist Senator Bernie Sanders opens up a considerable lead in early primary and caucus states, such as Iowa.

A New York Times poll taken earlier this week for the first-to-vote Iowa caucus revealed Sanders has opened up his strongest lead thus far in the campaign in the state, leading neoliberal centrist Pete Buttigieg by a solid seven percentage points. Sanders took first place in the poll with 25%, with Buttigieg behind in second with 18%.

Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren came in third and fourth respectively with 17% and 15%.

The strong poll is the latest development fueling a general feeling of consternation among establishment Democrats who oppose Sanders’ candidacy.

Fake “conservatives” who have taken their place in the Democratic Party in the Trump era are also voicing their displeasure with the possibility of their new party nominating Sanders, presenting a presidential election in which traditional liberal centrist politicians are not nominated by either major American political party.

President Obama himself has been rumored to be nervous about the prospects of Sanders’ candidacy, and reports have surfaced indicating that the Democratic Party kingpin would be willing to make a statement with the intention of kneecapping Sanders.

Although many conventional conservatives appear to dismiss Sanders’ prospects in a general election, President Trump himself is more prescient of the aged socialists’ populist appeal. The President has spoken of Sanders’ resonance on national trade policy, an issue both men have championed with great appeal to American workers.

However, the President believes that the Democratic establishment will likely take measures to rig the primary against Sanders, as it did in 2016. Considering the DNC’s track record of corruption, it’s far from a distant possibility.

A Trump vs. Sanders general election would likely be determined by whichever candidate can effectively channel the populist energies that fuel their respective political bases. Both candidates haveĀ  strong trade track records. Sanders has the potential to appeal to working class voters on issues of income inequality usually dismissed by Republicans, but he’s also completely powerless to criticize globalist mass immigration policies that have fueled a cheap labor workforce for the corporate elite.

A general election between the two populists would be unlike anything in recent American political history, and judging from Sanders’ hot polling, it very well could be in the cards.

NEW: Trump Ad Breaks Down Consequences of “Defund the Police”

Half of Democrats support defunding the police.

Published

A new Donald J. Trump for President campaign ad breaks down the implications of the national “defund the police” movement, pointing to the considerable share of national and congressional Democrats who would push to defund law enforcement in the event of a Joe Biden victory in November.

The ad features an automated 911 call system replacing an emergency dispatcher, with a recorded voice explaining that the revocation of police funding eliminated the 911 operator. The caller is told to press an appropriate key to report a rape or murder, with the emergency phone line resembling a corporate customer service phone line designed to avoid the time-consuming process of an in-person human conversation.

Watch the ad here:

Due to defunding of the police department, we’re sorry… But no one is here to take your call.

Polling reveals that around 50% of Democrats support the movement to defund the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd and nationwide race riots. City officials in Minneapolis and across the country have already organized plans to neuter their municipal police departments, with councilors in the former pledging a wholesale abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department.

Biden himself has proved reluctant to endorse the police defunding movement, but it’s all but guaranteed the elder Democrat would be compromised by liberal radicals. Municipal councils that want to defund their police departments wouldn’t stand to lose any federal funding as a result of the delinquency in enforcing fundamental law and order in a Biden presidency, opening the door for liberal cities to move forward with a rejection of law enforcement entirely.
