The suspended Bernie Sanders campaign slammed the decision by New York election officials to cancel the state’s presidential primary election on Monday, which the state is justifying on the basis of the coronavirus epidemic.

The state had previously been planning to hold a primary election on June 23rd. While Sanders is being stripped from the state’s primary ballot, two-thirds of the state’s counties are conducting primary elections for local offices on the same day that won’t be cancelled.

Sanders campaign advisor Jeff Weaver slammed the decision by election officials to prevent millions of New York Democrats from exercising their democratic franchise.

Today’s decision by the state of New York Board of Elections is an outrage, a blow to American democracy, and must be overturned by the DNC. Just last week Vice President Biden warned the American people that President Trump could use the current crisis as an excuse to postpone the November election. Well, now he has a precedent thanks to New York state.”

Sanders dropped out from the race earlier in the month, but still hopes to marshal his delegates to influence the Democratic Party at the planned August convention. Governor Andrew Cuomo dismissed his concerns in a radio interview Monday, pointing out he suspended his campaign weeks ago. State primary elections have almost always included ballot selections for candidates who have dropped out of primary elections, and it only became legal for New York to boot Sanders from the ballot due to byzantine language slipped into this month’s state budget.

The primary had been originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was initially pushed back to June 23rd when New York became the epicenter of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

The Democratic Party should be renamed at this point.

Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast

This race is getting hot.

New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.

Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.

Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.

Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.

Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
