    President Trump could be the unlikely benefactor of Andrew Yang ending his White House bid — a new poll finding he is the second-most popular alternative among the Yang Gang. Of the 200 Yang supporters surveyed in the hours after the businessman threw in the towel at Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, 11 percent of people said they would now support re-electing Trump, the Stanford University/Reality Check study obtained by The Post found. Democrat socialist Bernie Sanders was still the preferred alternative with 33 percent of the disbanded “Yang Gang,” but the survey showed supporters of the zany tech entrepreneur were...

    I traveled to New Hampshire to check on the opposition 2020 candidates. Biden, Klobuchar, Yang, Tulsi. On Saturday the 8th. 4 was enough. Meet & greet events in small venues. YouTube videos, links below. Yang is impressive ... better with these local events than he is on TV. The DEMS should back him with the future in mind, but they're too stupid to appreciate his talent.

    ...“Oh my gosh,” Yang responded. “One reason I am pumped to be here in New Hampshire is you all are gonna vote Feb. 11, and you know when we’re gonna find out the results? Feb. 11!” ...After laughter and applause from the audience, Yang explained what the Iowa debacle will mean for voters... "[I]t’s going to be harder to convince Americans that we can entrust massive systems with government if we can’t count votes on the same night in a way that’s clear, transparent, and reliable.”

    NBC News ^ | 2/3/2020 | Ben Collins
    Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Andrew Yang pushed false conspiracy theories on Twitter over the weekend tied to the canceled Des Moines Register poll, effectively commandeering a trending hashtag to convey the idea that their candidates are more successful than the public has been led to believe. The Des Moines Register poll, a closely watched indicator of the Iowa race, was canceled after at least one interviewer apparently omitted Pete Buttigieg’s name from the randomized list of candidates the surveyor read. The political website Axios reported that the reason for the error was that an interviewer increased the...

    TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Three days after President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) won a landslide victory in the Taiwan presidential election on Saturday (Jan. 11), Taiwanese-American presidential candidate Andrew Yang failed to join 41 other American congressmen, senators, administration officials, and rival presidential candidates in congratulating Tsai on Twitter, or any other public platform. Since Tsai's record win of 8.17 million votes, the leaders of over 60 countries have publicly congratulated her, much to the chagrin of Communist China. In the U.S. a total of 23 congressmen, 15 senators, three current and former Trump administration officials, two Democratic presidential candidates, and...

    CNBC displayed the wrong photos Monday of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Andrew Yang and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on its "Squawk Box" program. The error came as the show was discussing fourth quarter fundraising numbers. Redpoint Ventures founding partner Geoff Yang was shown in place of Andrew Yang, while Gabbard's photo was that of former 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), which quickly got the attention of Yang supporters on social media. SNIP

    On Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang argued Democrats should not be treating President Donald Trump as the cause of all problems. Yang said, “To me, it’s clear the reason Donald Trump is our president today is that we automated away 4 million manufacturing jobs that were primarily based in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Iowa, the swing states he needed to win.”

    In his opening statement during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on PBS, businessman Andrew Yang took a few swings at the media for being untrustworthy and smearing good Americans in their pitiful explanations for why Donald Trump was elected president. “It's clear why Americans can't agree on impeachment, we're getting news from different sources and it’s making it hard for us to even agree on basic facts,” he declared. “Congressional approval rating, last I checked, was something like 17 percent, and Americans don't trust the media networks to tell them the truth.” He then pointed out that the media couldn’t accurately...

    Long-simmering tensions boiled over at Thursday night's 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate in Los Angeles, as a blunt one-on-one sparring match erupted between Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren over their fundraising -- just minutes after businessman Andrew Yang slammed Democrats' "obsession" with President Trump and impeachment. Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, began the fiery exchange by criticizing Buttigieg's recent lavish fundraiser in Napa, Calif., saying he was cavorting with "billionaires in wine caves" -- prompting Buttigieg to retort that Warren, a multimillionaire, was a populist in name only. "You know, according to Forbes magazine, I'm literally the only person...

    PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff mistakenly referred to Andrew Yang at the beginning of Thursday night's Democratic debate when she was seeking to ask a question to rival candidate Tom Steyer. The confusing moment came as Woodruff was asking the candidates how they'd convince more people to back the impeachment of President Trump. “Mr. Yang, what more,” Woodruff began her question about President Trump’s impeachment while looking at Steyer. “I’m over here,” Yang responded. He then began clapping and appeared to ask “Judy?” before Woodruff corrected herself and directed the question to Steyer. SNIP

    Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang could get more airtime than ever to introduce themselves to America with just one more poll — or they could spend the December debate sitting at home. For both Gabbard and Yang, being excluded from the debate stage could starve their long-shot campaigns of the oxygen that comes with the nationally televised platform — which has helped sustain their small-dollar fundraising and marginal poll numbers — as the rest of the field continues to winnow. But if one or both qualify, they are likely to get greater shares of the speaking time than ever before....

    Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said Tuesday that he’d like to sit down with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to explain the Freedom Dividend, the universal basic income proposal that’s the cornerstone of his campaign for the White House. "I haven’t sat down with Alexandria. It could just be politics. I’m very optimistic that if she understood the Freedom Dividend, she’d be excited about it," Yang told Fox News after a campaign event at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H. "She’s demonstrated openness to universal basic income in the past and I think she’ll be very excited when she sees what...

    In a bid to outflank his Democratic presidential rivals, entrepreneur Andrew Yang vowed to “severely curtail the consumption of meat” and “do away with privately owned and operated automobiles.” Yang contrasted “my honesty with the deceptive presentations of the other Democrats running for president. Their implication that all it will take to battle climate doom is to tax the rich and tout this as the height of virtue won’t cut it. There isn’t enough money in the hands of rich people to pay for the kind of gut-wrenching changes in behavior that are required. Ninety-nine percent of the population is...

    With all the problems in the world, Democratic presidential candidates are focusing on — meat. During a climate change forum hosted by MSNBC on Thursday, longshot candidate Andrew Yang was asked by an audience member about “what policy adjustments” he’d make to “curb expansion and reduce the environmental impact of the cattle industry” in order to “reduce demand.” “Cattle is very energy-consuming and energy-expensive. And if you project forward on what we would need to do to reduce emissions, you would want to modify Americans’ diets over time,” Yang said.

He told MSNBC host Ali Velshi that "we might not own our own cars" by 2050 to wean the United States economy off of fossil fuels, describing private car ownership as "really inefficient and bad for the environment." Privately owned cars would be replaced by...

    Presidential candidate Andrew Yang said on Twitter that he will sit down with ousted "Saturday Night Live" comedian Shane Gillis. The entrepreneur tweeted that the two will be "sitting down together soon" after the comedian reached out. NBC's "SNL" decided not to hire Gillis after a video of Gillis using a racial slur against Asian people resurfaced last week, in addition to a podcast where Gillis called Yang a derogatory term. Variety also reported that Gillis used anti-gay and anti-Muslim language on his show. The remarks sparked outrage, but Yang said Gillis should keep his job. "We would benefit from...
