  • Brutal new 2020 numbers for Beto O’Rourke and Bill de Blasio

    From a distance, Quinnipiac University’s new national poll looking at the 2020 Democratic primary looks fairly familiar. There’s former vice president Joe Biden atop the field, with a 19-point lead over the next-closest candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The rest of the top tier includes familiar names, too: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Sen. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. When we look at how the top tier has evolved, though, things get interesting.

    Donald Trump singled out four of his challengers for ridicule on Tuesday, mocking Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders and predicting one of them will win the 2020 Democratic nomination. ‘Boy, you got some beauties there!’ he said during a speech in Louisiana about energy infrastructure. ‘Three hundred and fifty million people and that’s the best we can do?’ ‘It’s going to be one of these people,’ he said. So far 23 different Democratic White House hopefuls have declared their candidacies. He poked fun at O’Rourke for quickly losing what a month ago looked like juggernaut momentum....

    Elizabeth Warren rolls out federal policy to protect abortion rights By Zak Hudak May 17, 2019 / 8:00 AM / CBS News Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a plan on Friday aimed at protecting abortion rights amid mounting Republican efforts to reverse, or at least chip away at the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling. Hinging largely on the assumption of a Democrat-controlled House and Senate, Warren's proposal calls for Congress to "create federal, statutory rights that parallel the constitutional right in Roe v. Wade." Warren's proposal would also allow federal money to be used for abortions. "Our democracy should...

    As Democrats cobble on about their chances of beating President Trump, and backslap with one another about how 'beatable' the man is, here's some news to give them indigestion from Lauren DeBellis Appell at Real Clear Politics: The Center for Responsive Politics, which uses Federal Election Commission data, found that during the first three months of 2019 the number of women who donated to President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign topped the number of women who donated to any Democratic candidate running for president, accounting for more than 45 percent of all individual donations. That means President Trump had more female...

    Did Democrats learn a lesson about attacking the Hyde Amendment in 2016? A new press from conservative states to restrict abortion has led at least one Democratic presidential candidate to repeat that strategy. Elizabeth Warren declared today that abortions should get direct federal funding and that Congress should pass “federal statutory rights” to abortion on demand.You know what would come in handy for that? Medicare for all: “These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren wrote. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion and deny women access to reproductive health...

    With all the dread of a man timorously tiptoeing across a minefield, Donny Deutsch eventually made his point: Elizabeth Warren's "tone and manner" is too off-putting to permit her to win the presidency. Poor Donny was very clearly afraid of running afoul of Mika Brzezinski in particular and feminists and identity-politics fans in general. He knew the feminists think women are somehow punished by the liberal media, and lamented that this is where we still are in 2019. But after stating that Warren doesn't have the "stuff" to beat President Trump, Deutsch eventually made his point, suggesting that Warren is...

    It seemed to be more "Do as I say, not as I do" leadership from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. On Wednesday, the New York Democrat enthusiastically threw in her support for Uber and Lyft drivers ahead of a worldwide strike, but campaign finance records indicate her team has spent nearly $2,000 on ride-hailing services this year alone. The boycott was organized in response to Uber’s anticipated initial public offering this Friday for more than $90 billion – a figure drivers say comes at the cost of reduced wages and job security.THE BIGGEST WINNERS FROM UBER'S IMPENDING IPOIn a Wednesday afternoon tweet,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would be her party's best bet against President Trump in 2020 -- if only she were eligible to run for president. That was the observation of pollster Frank Luntz on Tuesday night during an appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." Luntz told host Laura Ingraham that 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez has a "genuine" quality that most of the Democrats seeking the party's presidential nomination seem to lack.

    Politico ^ | 5/13/19 | HOLLY OTTERBEIN, ALEX THOMPSON
    The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez primary is heating up. For the second time in five days, the star freshman congresswoman is appearing alongside Bernie Sanders at a high-profile event. Rep. Ro Khanna, co-chairman of Sanders' campaign, is talking with Ocasio-Cortez's staff about the primary. And Sanders' team told POLITICO that he and Ocasio-Cortez "have had phone calls.” Ocasio-Cortez's work on Sanders' 2016 campaign — and the fact that several staffers from that bid went on to work for her and the pro-Ocasio-Cortez group Justice Democrats — suggest the Vermont senator has the inside track for her coveted endorsement. But Sen. Elizabeth Warren...

    Republican pollster Frank Luntz has suggested that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would be the Democratic party’s best candidate to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020 if she were legally able to run. “The key is authenticity,” Luntz told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Tuesday evening. “You want to say what you mean, mean what you say,” he continued. “You want to be able to look straight at the camera and be yourself. And at least half of them [the 2020 Democratic candidates] are trying to be something that they’re not,” he argued. Ingraham then pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez, despite her disagreements...

    The Washington Post is discounting America’s win in World War Two because American forces were all “racists.” I guess that we now have to delete America’s part in World War Two from the history books to suit liberal sensibilities just like we are erasing statues to military people all across the nation. The attack on the Allied Forces in WWII came in an idiotic liberal article with the unwieldy title of, “Allied leaders were anti-Nazi, but not anti-racist. We’re now paying the price for their failure.” The article by a foaming-at-the-mouth lib named John Broich — who claims to be...

    Warren’s decision to snub an invitation from Fox to do a televised town hall prompted glowing headlines from The Washington Post, CNN, The New York Times and other liberal outlets Wednesday. They highlighted her characterization of the conservative network as “a hate-for-profit racket,” and noted it puts other Democratic presidential candidates who have taken Fox News up on the offer in the position of having to justify their decision. “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the...

    “Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) declared Tuesday in her explanation of why she turned down an invitation to one of the network’s town hall events. In a series of tweets, Sen. Harris attacked Fox News, accusing the network of promoting the “life and death consequences” of racism and conspiracy theorists. […] Democrats who participate in the Fox News town hall will be allowing the hateful network to cash in on their popularity, (Sen.) Warren says: “I won’t ask millions of Democratic primary voters to tune into an outlet that profits...

    Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman. Other times, the nice men running for president pat you on the head and tell you that one day you might get to play second fiddle to their greatness. In a time of extreme wokeness, a bunch of men, mostly white men, populate the top tier of Democratic presidential candidates, and all of them are embarrassed about it. The men are aware that, like leopard print paired with stripes, they’re out this season — so they’re promising to accessorize with the fairer sex.

The New York Democrat said Thursday she would like to see a presidential candidate who has “a coherent world view and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward. I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”

    Voters encountering Elizabeth Warren on the presidential campaign trail these days often seem surprised. After a packed gathering at an elementary school in Concord, N.H., in April, a 40-something woman told me she had expected Warren to be more like Hillary Clinton but found them miles apart. A college student who caught Warren’s speech in Hanover said he was perplexed to learn that a woman once described by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s political director as a “threat to free enterprise” in fact believes in entrepreneurship and markets. And at an event in a Portsmouth high school cafeteria, a retired...

    More women donated to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign than any of the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates, according to FEC data. 10,375 women have donated to Trump in the first quarter of 2019, more than double the nearest Democratic challenger. California Sen. Kamala Harris had the second highest number of female donors with 3,850. Trump’s average donation per woman donor is also much lower than his top female opponents. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s average donation was $1,321, and Sen. Harris’s average was $935 per woman respectively, while Trump’s donors average out to $141. The data, compiled by the Center...
