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...

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
