This might put a fright in Trump who is obsessed with poll numbers.

A new Public Policy Polling survey found that every potential Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential election — announced and unannounced — would beat President Trump in a head-to-head contest.

Biden 53%, Trump 41%
Sanders 51%, Trump 41%
Harris 48%, Trump 41%
O’Rourke 47%, Trump 41%
Warren 48%, Trump 42%
Booker 47%, Trump 42%
Gillibrand 47%, Trump 42%

The first thing to recognize is that polls mean very little at this point in time, however, it does provide some insight into Trump’s diminishing popularity and suggests that a Democrat with a little star power would quite literally destroy Trump in the next presidential election. 

Looking forward to that.

    OT? CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that he can’t figure out why some of the more than 800,000 unpaid federal employees need to rely on food pantries…

    ““Well, I know they are but I don’t really quite understand why because … the obligations that they would undertake say borrowing from the bank or credit union are in effect federally guaranteed,” Ross responded. “So the 30 days of pay which some people will be out ― there’s no real reason why they shouldn’t be able to get a loan against ~IT~.””

    “WILBUR ROSS downplays 800k workers missing checks as “a third of a percent on our GDP. So it’s just like it’s a gigantic number.”

    ROSS then says this about fed workers going to homeless shelters to get food: “I don’t quite understand why.”
    Says they should just go take out loans.

    ps. In February 2017, Forbes magazine reported that Ross has a net worth of $2.5 Billion. However, financial disclosure forms Ross filed after his nomination for Secretary of Commerce showed less than $700 Million in assets, and Forbes removed him from their billionaires list in November 2017.

    Why Trump Reigns as King Cyrus? Good Question. build a “beautiful wall”… Trump is elevating a personal political problem into a national crisis…The Republican Party has transformed itself into a political force that prioritizes its own power over the sanctity of electoral democracy.
    The authoritarian tendencies of Trump as President added to this rampant Republican electoral cheating threaten to create a national crisis.
    An early highlight of Republican disregard for our normal democratic process was their refusal to consider President Obama’s appointment of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in March 2016. While Mitch McConnell is often linked personally with this unprecedented action, all 11 Republicans on the Judiciary Committee said they would ignore any Obama nominee.
    Now he is considering using the President’s emergency powers, when our elected Congress thwarts his will. If Trump wins in 2020, the statute of limitations of five years for such federal offenses will run out while he is in office. But if he loses, he may face prison time.
    2020 qualifies as a personal emergency for Trump.

    “According to the Bible, Cyrus the Great, king of Persia, was the monarch under whom the Babylonian captivity ended. In the first year of his reign he was prompted by God to decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt and that such Jews as cared to might return to their land for this purpose.”

    “He’s been dismissed as a buffoon, a small-time tyrant who ruled in the shadow of Hitler and Stalin. But in the world of twentieth century dictators, Benito Mussolini was a pioneer. He created fascism, a movement that would plunge most of Europe into darkness.
    From undermining judges to indoctrinating children, he pioneered key tactics that other dictators would use to seize power.”
    “He connected with the public at mass rallies—and through the power of a new technology, radio.”
    “Italian Fascism glorified the notion of a “pure Italian,” evoking an ideal world where men were warriors and women were devoted mothers.”
    ” Fascism also glorified ancient Rome, with the promise to return the country to the glories of the past.”

    What I think is interesting in these results is that Donnie Dotard is constantly at the 41- 42% number no matter who he faces. Does this mean that 42% is his high point? If so (many polls have shown that 50+% of voters have said they would not vote for Dotard under any circumstances), then it looks very good for a dem, unless a strong third party candidate runs.

    Placing smaller coal plants in these same areas would “just exacerbate that problem,”

    Donald set a new low for the standard of becoming president. It seems like americans love them some crooks and liars. Too much reality shows make it hard for the average american to differentiate berween whats real or not. Donald is not real folks. You have been had.

    At 8:30 yesterday morning, as I was typing this essay, The New York Times emailed me. The subject line was “Ethics Reminders for Freelance Journalists.” (I have occasionally published essays and reviews in the Times). It informed me, inter alia, that the Times expected all of its journalists, both freelance and staff, “to protect the integrity and credibility of Times journalism.” This meant, in part, safeguarding the Times’ “reputation for fairness and impartiality.”

    I am prompted to issue my own ethics reminders for The New York Times. Here they are: You were partly responsible for the election of Trump because you are the most influential newspaper in the country, and you are not fair or impartial. Millions of Americans believe you hate them and that you will casually harm them. Two years ago, they fought back against you, and they won. If Trump wins again, you will once again have played a small but important role in that victory.
