Sinking in the polls

Less than 2 minute read

A new CNN poll shows that Kamala Harris, who seemed to be rising after the first debate where she blindsided Joe Biden as a busing-opposing racist, is now sinking fast after opponents publicized her record of keeping people in prison regardless of pesky details such as their innocence when she was California Attorney General.  

This latest poll shows Harris has sunk to just 5% while Biden has regained a double-digit lead.  He’s still 10 points lower than he was a couple of months ago, but he has 29% support, well ahead of Bernie Sanders (15%) and Elizabeth Warren (14%.)

At the link, Paul Mirengoff of the Powerline blog points out that all the Democratic poll frontrunners are legislators instead of anyone with executive experience at actually running anything (Biden doesn’t count as someone who’s actually run something, having been a Vice President.)  Mirengoff surmises that this is because the Party has turned so far to the left that anyone who performed the necessary duties of an actual executive, such as enforcing laws or prosecuting criminals, would automatically be disqualified in the eyes of the leftist Utopians who now make up the primary base. 

In other words, the Democrats have drifted so far away from reality, that to their base, having qualifications for the Presidency is now a disqualification.    

A couple of other points to take from this poll are that Biden’s claim that Democrats should support him because he’s the most electable is built on a foundation of sand, and to quote Roger Miller, his poll numbers swing like a pendulum do.  You should also heed my point, made before every election and always ignored by the media, that polls this far out from an election are about as trustworthy as an email promise of $10 million from a Nigerian prince.

    The Democratic party is bringing nothing positive for the future of the United States of America. Everything they proposed so far is on how to tear this great nation and it's people down .

    Candidate Biden is probably the best thing that can happen to the Republicans in 2020. The left has been carping for so long on the evils of old white men in government and how they are responsible for all of the Nation's problems that many in the party will not be able to bring themselves to vote for the old, white man - Biden. They don't have to vote for Trump; they need only stay home or find a 3rd party candidate to split the vote with - maybe Booker or Buttigieg or Warren. The Republican electoral numbers would look much better if that were to happen.

    The far left voters now is as scary as those waiting for the Communist take overs in other countries! May God help us if Trump is not re-elected in 2020! I fear for our younger generation if we loose our Patriotic and great President Trump! ???? Pray, pray and VOTE TRUMP!??
