Published

A failed U.S. Senate candidate from Texas is polling well among Democrats for a potential 2020 bid for president.

“[State] Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) is considered one of the top Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020 even among more well-known potential hopefuls, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill,” according to The Hill. 

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, the Latino who wasn’t, is tracking behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) According to the poll, Biden leads among Democrats with 28 percent, Sanders is at 21 percent and O’Rourke is at seven percent.

The report said that Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Corey Booker (N.J.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) “polled in the low single digits.”

O’Rourke is seen by many as a prototype of President Barack Obama. He is relatively young, charismatic and progressive. Others see right through the charade, like they did during the Obama presidency. He pitched himself as a populist Democrat, though his father-in-law is a billionaire.

Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti garnered just two percent in the poll.

O’Rourke’s Senate campaign spent a historic $80 million dollars – granted some was allocated to assisting the migrant caravan that attempted to illegally storm the U.S. southern border – only to lose to incumbent Sen. Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-Texas), an actual Latino.

Obviously, any polling at this stage is uncertain at best, but O’Rourke appears to be a genuine contender.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November

They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.

Published

New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.

Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.

While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.

Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.

With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.

The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
