In a matter of weeks the Establishment went from singing New York governor Andrew Cuomo's praises to tossing him to the curb. Pale stale males still have tactical uses, but they're expendable. No position is too ensconced, too high-ranking, to protect them when the decision they've outlived their usefulness has been made. Obstacles occupying spots... Read More
The following graph depicts immigration sentiments by various demographics as measured by doubling the percentages who want immigration "increased a lot", adding to it the percentages who want it "increased a little", subtracting from that the percentages who want it "decreased a little", and finally subtracting from that twice the percentages who want it "decreased...

In a week we will have confirmation that January 2021 was the best month for American incomes in history, surpassing the old record set in April of 2020 at the epidemiological nadir and economic zenith of the Covid crisis. This miraculous feat will occur in spite of record trade deficits and weekly jobless claims being... Read More
TomSchmidt suggests a spot check for circumstantial evidence of Dominion Voting Systems chicanery in New York: Both counties broke Democrat in 2016 and 2020. In 2016, Clinton won Westchester by 33.7 points; in 2020, Biden won by 36.3 points. Democrats improved 2.6 points there from 2016 to 2020. In 2016, Clinton won Nassau by 6.2... Read More
The results from the annual Gallup survey of the top 10 men and women Americans admire most tracks fairly closely to the demographics of the country itself. Blacks are overrepresented, Hispanics underrepresented, whites and Asians proportionally so. If we count Pope Francis as white, which we probably should since he is a second-generation Italian immigrant... Read More
At the time of his first inaugural, president Obama had a net approval rating of +54. That is unthinkable today. When president Trump was sworn in, by contrast, his net approval rating was -2. We may have entered a stage in our terminal national decline where no president will ever enjoy positive net favorability for... Read More
Respectfully disagree. As long as the dollar doesn't break, the system is sustainable. There has been a consolidation of power by the neo-liberal corporate wing of the Democrat party over the last four years. This is a reality that goes widely unnoticed and unremarked upon, but it is undeniable. Bernie Sanders got 45% of the... Read More
Google Trends search interest three weeks after the 2016 presidential election Donald Trump won: As lame duck, Barack Obama generated a small fraction of the interest the incoming president did. Trump's opponent couldn't hold a candle to him, either. Three weeks after the 2020 presidential election he appears to have lost, then, we would expect... Read More
If House votes determined which presidential candidate won each state, the Electoral College map would've looked like this: North Carolina is only blue on account of its 12th district. Incumbent Alma Adams ran unopposed, but if a Republican sacrificial lamb had received even half the paltry vote the 2018 challenger did, North Carolina would be... Read More
It wouldn't be a return to normalcy without a reassertion of the neo-liberal establishment's neo-connery: The presumption is a China-friendly/compromised Biden administration wouldn't contest a Chinese conquest--or reunification, opinions differ--of Taiwan. Maybe not. Then again, maybe so. Time isn't on the American empire's side. If it's not there, it'll be somewhere. One thing certain to... Read More
Though the corporate media won't have Donald Trump to kick around much longer, he's still giving them black eyes on the way out. After five years of portraying him as a misogynistic racist relentlessly implementing white supremacy to benefit white men at the expense of everyone else, Trump improved his electoral performance among women of... Read More
The corporate media is in collusion with the Biden campaign--it's hard to describe Biden reading from a teleprompter during media interviews any other way--so it's safe to assume the former vice president had the questions ahead of time. Biden delivered his rehearsed answers satisfactorily to a general audience and extremely well to people who think... Read More
Though the betting markets suspect it will be Joe Biden: The people expect it to be Donald Trump: This result comes from a sample supporting Biden by 9 points over Trump. Not only is Trump's party more certain of his impending triumph than Biden's party is of his, independents find a Trump victory more probable... Read More
Trump is the war weary end of an increasingly war weary Republican electorate; Biden is the war waging end of an increasingly war mongering party: With propitious prospects for Biden in November, the late John McCain is smiling as he gazes upward. He may be gone, but the warfare state he championed indefatigably lives on... Read More
Democrats are destined to dominate the mail in vote: Many of those ballots will not have been received and processed by election night. When the time comes to start calling states, will the corporate media extrapolate the results of the yet-to-be-received votes based on the mail in ballots that have been counted up to that... Read More
The following graphs show the perceived sentiments of Joe Biden and Donald Trump towards various major demographic groupings by partisan affiliation of those doing the perceiving: A few noteworthy things: - That Democrats perceive evil orange man as caring about whites, men, and the wealthy does not reflect positively on Trump, it reflects poorly on...

The extent to which the preference of older black Americans override the preferences of the many other factions of the Democrat electoral coalition is difficult to overstate: It's not predominantly the party of working people or the party of immigrants or the party of government or the party of peace. More than anything else, it... Read More
Sleepy Joe is soporific. It's directionally good but weak, the phoning it in nickname. Creepy Joe sounds nefarious. There is something attractive about a highly successful super villain. And it's been a meme for years. People are already aware. Honing in on the cognitive decline saliently manifesting itself every time Biden speaks publicly is an... Read More
White progressives like pointing out that by nominating Biden over Sanders, the party has ensured no one is going to vote for the Democrat presidential nominee. Instead, they'll vote against Trump. Well, that ignorance is spoken from a place of privilege. It otherizes the lived experience of black bodies that have been eager to support... Read More
Kamala Harris is the people's choice: Her advantage over Elizabeth Warren runs the demographic gamut. The only exception is among voters under thirty years of age, a notoriously unreliable cohort. Harris even beats Warren among Democrat primary voters who self-describe as politically liberal. Harris has a huge advantage over Warren among Hispanics (37% to 16%),... Read More
UBI, junior addition, is wildly popular: The senior addition is pretty popular, too: Republicans, led by the president, initially got to the left of Democrats with the onetime payout to all tax-filing American adults. As the extent of the economic carnage comes into public focus, congressional Democrats are pivoting past the ground the populist wing... Read More
What other than Who? Whomism? could explain why 54% of Democrats say if allegations of sexual assault against Donald Trump are proven, they disqualify him from the presidency while just 30% of Democrats say the same regarding Joe Biden? A subconscious conversion of "if allegations against X are proven true" to "do you think the... Read More
She, not he--I mean Michelle rather than Barack, I don't mean that as we're a serious outfit, not tabloid trash!--is the most broadly popular top tier contender. It's not even close: Obama is the only one in positive territory among both the general public and among independents. She's wildly popular among blacks
Or Who? Whom? part XXVIII: Though "credible" means "able to be believed", the question would've gone from good to great if it had asked "Do you believe Tara Reade's allegation of sexual assault by Joe Biden?" This isn't precisely the death of #MeToo, just its total enslavement. The movement has fully capitulated to and been... Read More
The following graph shows the percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who say if the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden and/or Donald Trump are proven true, the guilt of each "disqualifies him from the presidency": Inconsistency in verdicts in consequences are almost exclusively partisan in nature. To make these distinctions clearer, the next... Read More
Bernie Sanders supporters are right now as angry and uncooperative as they're going to get. Time heals all wounds and in seven months most will have remembered nothing is more important than defeating Donald Trump. After all, that's what Sanders kept telling them--when he wasn't talking about how great a guy his good friend Joe... Read More
