IBD/TIPP Poll: Elizabeth Warren Edges Past Joe Biden; Trump Continues Gaining on Both

Cornpop-pop is fading. Liewatha is rising.

Elizabeth Warren had the support of 27%, with Joe Biden backed by 26% and Bernie Sanders a distant third at 10%. Support for South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg climbed to 7% from 5%. No other candidate polled more than 3%.

...

Meanwhile, Joe Biden is lagging in fundraising, attracting just $15.2 million in the third quarter. Elizabeth Warren raised $24.6 million and Bernie Sanders $25.3 million.

...

Biden remains the top-tier Democrat with the best chance of beating Trump, but his lead narrowed to 7 points from 12 in September. The October poll showed Biden beating Trump 51% to 44%. He led 54%-42% in September.

Sanders led Trump 49% to 45%, unchanged from September.

Among independents, Trump led Warren, 49% to 43%, and Sanders, 48% to 44%. Biden had a narrow 46%-45% edge, but that was a big comedown from his 55%-37% lead among independents in September.

The Morning Consult poll, however, shows Joe Biden regaining his lead, up 33-21 over Warren.

Update: The new RCP average puts Warren up over Biden:

244 That any of these dumb freaks can be within 2O points of Trump is a reminder how degraded and idiotic the country is overall.


And the even more pathetic thing about the CA idiocy is that now, people like CA's majority [also applies in many other states] are *so* dumbed down that, even when they suffer, badly, from the idiotic policies they support/don't block, they *still* won't learn. No learning curve. No backlash. No system correcting itself. Just a spiral, downwards.

They have less awareness of cause and effect than a planarian fucking flatworm. These are people who destroy their own communities and then flee, and destroy new communities with the same behavior.

They will launch a thousand new crusades against everyone else, because of that time their power was out for a few days because of coal power from red states that warmened all the globals Trumpwise or something. They will never ever ever learn.

Absolutely brutal.

Given that your inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, or even the most elementary due process protections, the executive Branch cannot be expected to participate in it. Because participating in this inquiry under the current unconstitutional posture would inflict lasting institutional harm on the Executive Branch and lasting damage to the separation of powers, you have left the President no choice. Consistent
with the duties of the President of the United States, and in particular his obligation to preserve the rights of future occupants of his office, President Trump cannot permit his Administration to participate in this partisan inquiry under these circumstances.

Krazy Konspiracy sites say that all of this is about a land grab. The (convoluted) gist of it is that land burns, it becomes "unihabitable" and that the government et al can buy it for nothing. That then will force people to live in cities, with the goal of turning the US into a nation of 13 or 11 mega cities where people will live in tiny spaces and be controlled. "Agenda 21."

All that blacktop and those houses could just combust if you look at them wrong.

Fuck you PGE, fuck you. And fuck CA. This is going to screw me in a huge way since I do contract work. Now I get to work all freaking night to try to get a project done before they shut me off.

They want to avoid the last one. Since they do no fire mitigation (e.g., tree cutting, slash removal, etc.) along their high-tension lines for a variety of reasons (including, with dripping irony, environmental protection), they're de-energizing them in preparation for strong winds so they don't start another gigantic fire in the tinder boxes their high-tension lines traverse.

They want to avoid the last one. Since they do no fire mitigation (e.g., tree cutting, slash removal, etc.) along their high-tension lines for a variety of reasons (including, with dripping irony, environmental protection), they're de-energizing them in preparation for strong winds so they don't start another gigantic fire in the tinder boxes their high-tension lines traverse.

I've got a bunch of friends who are Firemen, one of them a Captain (now retired) and was one of the go-to guys for wildfires. For decades they've been telling me exactly what the problem is - which is easily solved. But hippies. Better people die horrible deaths and hundreds of thousands of acres burn out of control than we clear out a bunch of dead brush and scare owls. It's insane.


Oh, and a lot of the fires are started by the homeless and illegals. They find tortilla irons at a lot of these mystery fires. But that never gets mentioned. I'm guessing it's so out of control at this point, the infrastructure so bad - they don't know what else to do, but would rather a bunch of their brown or homeless pets start the fire than a Chinese transformer.

But I don't see her giving up 4 years of her life to be a political person. She has too many outside interests, too much life to live, and hasn't been real political, except when she endorsed Barry.

A man who took something that should have stayed buried deeper than a pharaoh and he decided to make it the number one political drama of the fall season, guaranteeing that everyone everywhere is going to be digging on all things Ukraine.

437 Dead thread, but going to say it anyway.

If Trump is leading with Independents, then he is leading period. There is no scenario where Trump wins Ind and doesn't win the election.

Someone's model is off.

438 What is this thing with the 'wine mom'? I drink wine, am a member of two wine clubs one an excellent California winery. I also drink beer and will crawl over glass to vote for a Rep or a conservative over any Dem. Not that it helps in some cases, but I will never in a million years vote for someone like Oprah. I have thoroughly despised her for many years for her duplicitous attitude.
