CNN Poll – Democrat Candidates: Joe Biden Gains 7%, Kamala Harris Drops 12%…

The latest CNN tracking poll shows the top five haven’t changed. However, Joe Biden increased by 7 percent from the previous poll (was 22%, now 29%); and the biggest loser is Senator Kamala Harris who dropped a whopping 12 percent (was 17%, now 5%).

Sleepy Mumbles is leading the pack nationally with 29% support.  The communist Sanders is barely holding on to second place with 15%; and is being challenged by socialist Warren with 14%.  Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris round out the top five with 5 percent each.

[Poll Data pdf Here]

The next round of democrat primary debates will take place in Houston, Texas, over two days on September 12-13, 2019. The debate is limited to 20 candidates with 10 candidates participating each night. As of August 20, 2019, 10 candidates had qualified for the debate: Biden, Buttigeg, Booker, Castro, Harris, Klobuchar, O’Rourke, Sanders, Warren and Yang.

To qualify for the September debate a candidate must: ♦Receive 2 percent support or more in four national or early state polls (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and/or Nevada) publicly released between June 28, 2019, and August 28, 2019.

[Any candidate’s four qualifying polls must be conducted by different organizations, or if by the same organization, must be in different geographical areas.]

Additionally, ♦Candidates must also provide verifiable evidence they reached the following fundraising thresholds: (1) Donations from at least 130,000 unique donors; and (2) A minimum of 400 unique donors per state in at least 20 states.  The DNC will collect and approve this data harvest.  The ‘data harvest’ is the club cost of running in the primary.

              I actually do believe some of the polls as a danger sign to POTUS. I do remember quite a few former Treepers who predicted a Red Wave. Remember? How did that work for us guys? Those of us who warned folks about the House in 2018 were called “concern trolls” and practically run off the site. It gave me no pleasure to be correct about 2018. There are warning clouds POTUS needs to be aware of. I wish he would lighten it up sometimes, joke around, play with Barron, and not punch down with losers like The Mooch. Let staff or a self a[ppointed hit dog handle these nitwits. Get out there and be positive. The July 4th visual of him, flags, flyovers, and the DC mall was awesome! It was like Reagan! His approval numbers jumped after that week across the board. That is what he needs to do to get all those suburban women who need a reason to vote for him. People love his policies but he needs to be less abrasive. Not all the time! There is a time and place for Trump to be Trump. But he has our votes. He needs more from others. I wish he focused more on the great things he is doing. Ignore the twats

                2018 losses had nothing to do with job satisfaction or popularity of President Trump. We got rid of a bunch of RINO’s who either quit or ran away from POTUS Trump.

                I Trust President Trump’s strategy completely. No need for me to second guess him. He won against all odds. He won by not listening to the RINO “experts”. He will be fine. The down ballot people – that will depend on if they embrace him or not.

I trust POTUS too, but it does not mean I am not concerned. Another come from behind win could be a helluva story. The MSM’s last shred of credibility goes out the window. Another night of depressed faces on the networks would be epic. But I think there are some warning signs.

                I like your post very much, Mr. Morales, and I agree with many of your points. I was one who completely believed in a Red Tsunami, not just a measly wave. You can imagine the cognitive disonance I experienced when reality smacked me upside my head at the midterms. Then Jeff Sessions (“the silent executioner”) resigned & with that I had to accept that my own belief system about what was going on behind the scenes in this country was altogether faulty.

                Like you, I have never wavered in my support of PDJT, but I admit that I have cringed a time or two here & there, even though I mostly love his sense of humor & I love him. So I keep my eyes on one of the more important prizes – the Supreme Court.

                I know people who dislike PDJT’s personality so much that they are falling for the negative noise more & more. So I remind them: if you love this country, if you believe our constitution is the best in the world, & if you want the United States of America to survive & thrive, you will shut out the noise and keep your eye on the prize – our last, best chance of saving the country we love . . . THE SUPREME COURT.

                It’s a no-brainer. TRUMP 2020. 💖🇺🇸 Keep America Great.

          Joe Biden is and will be the nominee. It was all pre-planned by the Dem machine. As Sundance says, its what they do. Its all they do. They do not have contigentcies. They do not regroup. They plan. They are predictable. The nominee is Biden.
          1- All of their polling indicates they need to pick up 2 states and 39 electoral votes out of FL WI OH PA MI. Biden as a “moderate” gets them there
          2- They flooded the zone with lefties to take down Bernie and give Joe a clear path.
          3- Biden needs to poll above 30% to isolate the field and secure the nomination
          4- The mega donors, insiders, and corporate elite are all on Team Joe.
          5- When he falters, Obama steps in with a Hail Mary endorsement to push him over the edge
          But Biden is finding ways to screw up. The gaffes continue. He decided to lurch left inside of staying in the middle. He has no energy. His memory is shot. And there is zero buzz in his sparsely attended speeches. The media elite sees this and is trying to warn the Dems. Hence the schism between the DNC and media. The MSM sees the handwriting on the wall and is trying to warn the DNC,. But the Dems do not change plans. They do not adapt. Biden is the plan and they are trying to desperately trying to get the media on board. The MSM clearly wants Lizzie. Biden has appeal in the Midwest that is dangerous for POTUS, but he could implode and the memory loss is scary to voters. If Trump goes hard and heavy on Lizzie he will be accused of bullying her and she gets sympathy votes. But Lizzie will not play in the Midwest. Biden is still dangerous

        The progresssive wing will come out strong for Warren but Mayor Pete’s only charm factor is being a homosexual, which will keep a part of the minority base of the Dems away from the duo. Warren is like the Ted Cruz for the Left. Polls strong with the wing of their respective party and those very engaged in day-to-day politics, but turn off the political neophytes and those closer to the center.

        Remember what Sundance said about Trump being a national candidate while Cruz was a regional candidate. Same is true for folks like Tulsi Gabbard and Gillibrand. ?If the Dems go with Warren on the top of the ticket, they’re willing to lose 5 to 15% of the Black and Hispanic votes and I know they can’t afford that in any swing states.

As for Warren, while she isn’t stupid, she’s way too far left AND her personality/voice comes across as being a scold.

    The irony is that Biden will likely lead the polling for quite awhile. If he gets the nomination it will be stunning. For a variety of reasons, one of which is that it will reveal how badly democrats don’t really pay attention to what is said in a primary race.

    If indeed Biden is the nominee…………….think how much fun President Trump will have with that. On the one hand Biden’s staff will still likely be trying to limit his exposure to the media………..who will happily comply and do all they can to ignore his gaffes, and at the same time they will be push polling trying to get the media to praise Biden as the only real choice in the election.

    And then……………….they will have no choice but to let him debate Donald J. Trump……………

      In the last 70 years, the Democrat Party has never nominated anyone over the age of 57, with the exception of their 2016 nominee – who had to be thrown into her handicap van like a sack of concrete. They’re not going to nominate a septuagenarian. That eliminates Biden, Warren and Sanders. When you’ve eliminated the impossible, whatever remains – no matter how improbable – must be the truth. It’s Harris. She checks off all of the intersectional boxes for Dems: Jewish (spouse), childless, woman, black, Indian, skank.

Your septuagenarian point is a good one, but it’s not literally impossible, and Warren doesn’t seem as old as Bernie or Biden.

      • First, let me say, I am nobody. But, since the Teddie White days, I have been fascinated by the uniquely American ritual of presidential politics.

        So, unless he falls down a flight of stairs, it’s Biden. He’s got the mega-donors. He’s got the “Super Delegates”. He’s considered “safe”, his wife said so yesterday. And, when faced with the juggernaut of MAGA, safe is exactly what the party elites want. They don’t want some wild-eyed loon to take down the entire party. They have plenty of those.

        Unless Main Street completely collapses, they’re in for a shellacking. The DemocRATS know it and they don’t want to risk their (imagined) “bench strength” to that kind of embarrassment. Recall the Walter Mondale sacrificial candidacy or the Kerry fiasco. Recall, too, that the DemocRATS’ political play book has been in place since the eighties (they called Reagan a “dummy” and “incompetent”, as well) and has proven somewhat successful. DemocRATS have elected two, 8-year incumbents in that time period and they actually had full control of government, for a, thankfully, brief period.

        In spite of the Clinton’s, the DemocRATS most recent President, Obama, is the titular “head” of the DemocRAT party. As Presidential candidate, Biden will traditionally take that mantle, win or lose, post 2020. He doesn’t want it! Post election, Biden will go back to retirement. Oh, he may hang around as a Candidate Emeritus, but he poses no threat to the Chicago cabal and their long range planning. To them, Biden is the perfect sacrifice.

        The rest of the dwarfs are running for Vice President or some such party hierarchy.

    So helpful to have side-by-sides over time — because the way I look at polls is to put a bunch together and sort of squint, the way you do to obscure dots and pixels to see the bigger picture. Then I try to apply a big overlay of common sense!

    It was obvious form the fall of 2015 that if something didn’t jolt the field — like immediate mass dropouts right at a critical time — Trump would win. His 30ish% was enduring; the conventional wisdom was once the field winnowed, an establishment candidate would beat him; but not only did candidates have no plans to drop out — the numbers among candidates in the “establishment” lane barely ever broke double digits. Meaning even if the field ever did drop — way more votes were going to Trump than the smart money realized.

    So here’s how I read the current field. And let me flaunt a little cred on this topic as a cross-over voter — I voted twice for Obama, then Bernie, then converted to Trump. You can throw fruit at me if you want — but even as a Trump convert, I still have some sense of the democrat zeitgeist. (And let me state for the record: I’m voting Trump. period.)

    This got long, so let me start with the punchline: Warren. The top 3, all known commodities with national followings, are actually pretty stable, and pulling 60 or more percent collectively. Harris or Buttigieg flirted with top tier, but even if they flick back up, the lay of the land looks set. The key question was whether Buttigieg or Harris would knock off the obviously vulnerable Biden; Harris tried and looked like she might succeed, but collapsed (probably hastened by Tulsi’s brutal takedown). The MSM makes it seem like it all could still change; but it won’t. This was Harris’s test flight — and she crashed and burned. That’s it. That’s the answer. Same for Buttigieg; you can choose among several moments his campaign was effectively over — I pick when he told an irate black constituent of South Bend he wasn’t asking for her vote. Fork, done.

    The question is how do the chips fall among the top 3. It looks like somehow The Club has sanctioned Elizabeth Warren as acceptable and in all likelihood she’ll be the nominee. Really the only way to stop her is with a new entrant. If the Club wanted to stop this clown show, it could; which is why I think it must have made it’s peace with Warren.

    Biden’s number are illusory in the sense that he won’t be the nominee. It’s not a secret he’s lost his marbles and cannot hack a general election. What his numbers actually represent is the critical mass of the establishment vote: The non-socialist, corporate-Wall Street democrat douche bag vote. Look how low that percentage actually is. Even if all the voters of the hangers-on migrated to the establishment lane — it barely gets you to 50%. This means it’s not an establishment year. It’s a faux-resistance “left loud and proud” year.

    It’s Sanders or Warren, and it won’t be Sanders. At least half the party, including all of the establishment wing, still secretly or not-so-secretly hates him. But, some establishment voters might just go to Warren. They’d prefer Harris, Buttigieg or even Klobuchar or one of the irrelevant governors. But it’s clear one of their shiny newcomers hasn’t taken off, and I think they’ve reconciled that social wokeness ala Harris or one of the 3 Bs won’t carry the day without some believable economic populism. So they’ll have to accommodate the economic/green-new-deal socialists a little bit, and they’ve decided they can work with Warren.

    Bernie and Warren seem to pull from the same pool, but aren’t actually interchangeable, because some of the SJWs hate Bernie too. Warren would get all Bernie voters, but not vice versa. Some SJWs still don’t think Bernie isn’t sufficiently woke (I know it’s hard to believe, but there’s a lingering rift from 2016 in which Hillary had the SJWs convinced that Bernie was a closet racist/sexist — the whole “Bernie Bro” thing). Warren inevitably has some of the smoldering “I’m with her” voters who would never vote for Bernie. He has a built-in ceiling among the SJW far left (as opposed to the economic far left) that Warren doesn’t have. She’s got cred with both planks of the far left, Bernie’s SJW cred is wobbly. It’s also irrational; the SJW left won’t simply default to Bernie if he’s objectively their best option; some of them simply hate him.

    Whatever noise happens over the next months, it comes down to this: Both Biden and Bernie are fatally flawed candidates, even for a primary. Just as each has a sizeable faction convinced their guy is the de facto favorite, each has a sizable faction that would cut out a kidney before going with that particular “favorite.” And they won’t get each other’s faction — no crossover there. Not so with Warren. She has her own durable faction, and can pull all of Bernie’s and some of Biden’s and some of the loser 1-5% brigade. Which puts Warren in the prime spot. The dynamic will come into focus once Biden or Bernie drops out. Which one of them will, once he realizes he’s only helping the other by sapping support from Warren. Pressure will be applied. In short, the drama of the race is a game of chicken between Biden and Bernie but ultimately Warren wins.

    At some point, Warren will have a big enough lead (at least 30-35%) to outlast a primary field of hangers-on, or even win a head to head with either Biden or Bernie. With the top 3 breaking away and the others failing to sustain any gains, it would take some new entrant — and I can’t think of who would matter — to change things.

    And I think that for the very same reasons the Club seems to have made peace with her — she won’t make a dent in Trump’s MAGA movement.

        I think that’s possibly true if neither Biden nor Bernie ever drop out. One needs to drop for her dominance to emerge, because it would consolidate Bernie’s votes and take enough of Biden’s to show she’s the front runner.

        I don’t as yet see the forcing event for Biden or Bernie to drop, but believe there will be one. If the Establishment wing wanted to stave off a socialist revolution candidate, it could have (Joe’s 30ish% shows that), but it needed to get behind a candidate that didn’t terrify sentient people. They made the same miscalculation with Hillary. They even cleared the field to up her chances — not grasping that a little-known, wild-eyed septuagenarian from the tiny socialist state of Vermont could give her enough of a run for THEIR money that they’d have to actually sabotage him. They didn’t grasp that insulting their own base and half the country would blow up in their faces.

        Joe is almost as much of an insult to voters as Hillary was. I don’t know why they keep calculating this way — my guess is they’d rather lose with than win with the “wrong” person — but who knows. I also think they’ve brought Warren under control to the extent they think they can manage her presidency.

        Joe will collapse like Jeb did when people actually start voting. That might be when he drops out.

Trump still has appeal to factions of the disaffected left — he’s pulled a lot of them, but could pull even more — and a lot of people are steaming mad that she’s gotten the same social media/MSM treatment that conservatives have gotten. If he highlighted her non-interventionist foreign policy as essentially America First, and spotlighted her censorship woes, he’d grab more of the left (not that’s that a goal — but every vote helps!) and would highlight his own commitment on those hugely popular topics as nonpartisan. (It also would be another good troll of the democrats to call out their poor treatment of one of their own ….)

    But since nearly all of the DemocRAT candidates proposals have the characteristics of the prior two statements, to me it’s purely a coin toss on any day as to which candidate can fool their base sufficiently to gain the most votes. Biden has held the lead the longest so far, but there’s a long road ahead – and many primaries – to the DemoncRAT National Convention.

    Remember that the Dems changed their rules back in 2016. Superdelegates have no power until after the first ballot. (They can only vote on the 1st ballot if the outcome is not in question.)

    I suspect none of the current crop arrives at the convention with enough delegates to win on the first ballot. Having Biden, Sanders, and Warren (and maybe Harris after California) clustered near the top almost ensures that. It’s in Dem’s interest to drag this out as long as possible. A long primary season allows them multiple candidates daily trashing and bashing the President while sucking up a lot of free media along the way.

    Besides, It’s the only way the superdelegates and the Dem elites get control back of the nomination. They might even push for a “unity candidate”, somebody not even on the current radar.

    Long time listener, first time caller!

    It’s clear as day to me that Elizabeth Warren will be the Democrat nominee in 2020.

    1) The Democrats will not, will not, will not nominate a 78y/o white man who has been in DC for 45yrs. It’s anathema to the “narrative” , it does not comply with the long game at all. They need a woman. They realize an incumbent with a strong economy has never once been defeated in American history. This is about cementing the future democrat narrative and progressive identity.

    2) The squaw has smoked the peace pipe and come to a truce with the Wallstreet donor class. The globalists no longer fear her…at all. CHECK.
    She is favored by the Seattle/San Fran tech “elite”. CHECK
    Hollywood is spreading their money around liberally at the moment, but they will coalesce around her and when they do she will be held in far higher regard than Hillary. CHECK.

    3) The squaw has no bad blood on her tomahawk. She is the only one (ONLY ONE) on stage that can unite the Clinton, Obama and Sanders wings of the party. The pow wow will be held in her big tee-pee….or nowhere at all. The fact she’s been a national figure for years yet still carries no bad blood is remarkable.

    4) Will she lose some black voters (as opposed to Biden)? Yes, certainly, but she will more than make up for it with millennial’s and suburban housewives that depend on “The View” and Yahoo News for the political understanding. The risk that this group see’s Trump v. Biden….and simply shrugs their shoulders and stay home is a far greater risk than the blacks who leave the reservation.

    She’ll be able to hold the usual 60% – 65% of Hispanics. Trump will improve on his 28% from 2016 and they know it. Nothing they can do there. She probably does better than Biden does with Hispanics in the end anyways.

    6) The squaw will retain just as many rank and file “centrists” that always vote (D) as Hillary did. She’s super organized on the ground, draws crowds (12k in Minnesota), and is actually the most likable person on that stage once you accept that Biden is a nearly brain dead relic of the 80s.

    7) Finally, that damned DNA test. They can’t stop Trump from clubbing her relentlessly over the head with it… but they’ll use that for the “racism” and “woman hating” narrative. The media will “fact check” the vast career benefits she got from it.

      Heels Up is young, unknown, already compromised, and will do as told. She’s the closest think the they’ve got to Obama, at least on paper. Don’t count her out.

      Vladimir Lenin-Sanders –
      Pitch: “workers of the world unite.” Keeping him off the ticket could be more important to the DNC Tsars than winning the WH. They HATE him. Problem is, Lenin-Sanders commands a vast mob of raving lunatics who LOVE him, as the DNC painfully learned after they screwed him in 2016.

      Besides his own party seeking to destroy him, his biggest problem is the the Trump economy. Either way, he’s gone.

      Pale Face –
      Her pitch: we need the lunatic mob to win, and I’m the rich, White, female wacko leftist for the job. After we tank Sanders, the mob will come to me.

      The more Pale Face can pull in the far left mob, the stronger she is. Right now, she is winning. But rest assured, Pale Face won’t be going off the reservation. She’s 100% establishment (look no farther than her profiting off subprime housing).

      Otherwise:

      Chasten’s Husband Peter: running for VP, a book deal, a job at MSNBC, or all three.

      Beta: replaced Williamson as the joke of the race.

      The rest: irrelevant.

    Fascinating Possibilities!
    In 2020 the Democrat national convention is July 13 – 16, so we will know who their nominee is by mid-July. The Republican national convention is August 24 – 27, 5 weeks later.

    Think about what could happen during those 5 weeks and would happen if I were running things!

    Trump’s DOJ (Barr + Durham + Huber etc.) could indict the entire slimy mob of Spygate coup plotters! (maybe even Hillary, if there is a just God in heaven) …perp walks! …4:00 am FBI raids on their homes with lots of cameras recording! …Sean Hannity + Tucker Carlson + Laura Ingraham 3 consecutive hours each weekday night! + Rush Limbaugh 3 consecutive hours each weekday afternoon! …not to ever forget Sundance right here at CTH and The Last Refuge2/Twitter! ….ALL FOR 5 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS AFTER THE DEM CONVENTION SELECTS THEIR CANDIDATE! So, from late August until election day November 3rd Republicans get to bury the Democrat candidate in an unremitting avalanche of dirt, with so many Republican TV commercials that we’ll be cheering out loud at home but also wanting to throw shoes at the TV due to the sheer volume of political commercials.

    We’re all losing patience with the seemingly endless delays / non-prosecutions of Swamp dwelling Democrat coup plotters, but the scenario above would make it all worth the wait. It COULD happen this way …….hey … dreams are still free, and still untaxed …here’s hoping!

    The REAL race:
    Biden 29%
    Hookayrs 17%
    Sanders 15%
    Warren 14%
    Buttigieg 5%
    Harris 5%
    That’s how the race looks if you combine “no opinion” and “somebody else” (not on the whole list), call that “Hookayrs”, and rank accordingly.

    This seems to be a flavor of the week poll, especially from Fake News CNN. It’s like they promote outlier polls to boost certain candidates in order to maximize data collection on each candidate which ultimately ends up in the clutches of the DNC.

    The downside of this strategy is that moderates are getting terrified of the possibilities and can’t find a candidate which represents their interests, values or preceded policies. Just saw a video from Tim Pool, moderate democrat, who is agrees with a recent poll showing 1/3 of dems (The base) fear the policies promoted by the majority of their own candidates. Absent minded Biden is their only choice… which will not due for Leftists.

    Here is my take. When the others have all lost enough ground, dropped out even, then Crazy Old Joe’s mental infirmities will become of paramount importance, and some new will step forward to save the day.
    Rules and deadlines, you say?
    Did we not just see the Democrats rig things against Bernie, in Hillary’s favor?
    Did we not see the Democrats rig things against Hillary, in Obama’s favor?

    They will do what they want to do, when they want to do it.
    They already have an anchor baby running, don’t they?

    D*mn! If those poll numbers are correct (and I have no reason to disbelieve them since they are Dems asking each other about other Dems) the field is winnowing down and they’ll have a clear winner by convention time. I was so hoping for a 3- or 4- way split at the convention

      We might be able to make a split. If Trump is unopposed, then those of us who live in states where we can vote in either primary can muck with the Dem primary and force some idiot like Marianne Williamson to win a state, and Amy Klobuchar to win another, and on and on. It would be so awesome to force the Dems to choose their candidate at the convention. They would be months behind Trump then.

    Obama won because he knew he could not say what he would do if voted in. Surveys always revealed folks liked Obama personally, NOT his policies.
    Now, these candidates are being very blunt about what they would do and Americans don’t want it.
    The last 2 Democratic Presidents had no father figure and were free thinkers with some sexual deviancy in their past.

      Don’t underestimate the MSM’s ability to normalize the Marxist platforms of the parlor Bolsheviks on the D ticket. However, that ability only goes so far, as evidenced by the 2016 election results. But it can get them in striking distance.

    Methodology seems iffy re: randomly reading candidate names to participants. Given the well recognized primacy and decency effects )cognitive biases in which the first and/or last item(s) are most readily recalled), the random method might be vulnerable to bias.

    I think I have found the “Secret Democrat Candidate”. James Comey. Now, before you laugh hear me out.

    How does he keep from being arrested? By becoming a candidate. The FBI is loath to arrest someone campaigning, generally in the months leading up to an election. Those months can easily be turned into years by a former director. How better to twist everything President Trump says and not get sued? The Resistance would continue. The election would become a jury trial in a he said/she said case.
