Poll: Warren Blasts Past Bernie

A new Fox News poll shows Joe “The Gaffe” Biden in the lead for Democrats’ 2020 votes and Elizabeth Warren is nipping at his heels at 20 percent, just eleven points behind. As for socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, he’s falling back third place at 10 percent marking a 13-point drop since March. Should this trend continue, the progressive-but-still-establishment Pocahontas may be the DNC’s new preferred pet in lieu of the VP who is failing to gain further traction among their voters.

According to the latest Fox News poll, former Vice President Joe Biden continues to enjoy a commanding lead among Democratic primary voters. At this moment, 31 percent of Democrats say they intend to vote for President Barack Obama’s former right-hand man.

That’s the good news for him. The bad news is that these numbers haven’t improved over the course of the months. The Democratic-Media Complex has relentlessly pushed him as the inevitable nominee, but as many as 69 percent of Democratic voters clearly disagree with that assessment. For now.

Some things have changed behind Biden. Senator Bernie Sanders, long the darling of the far left, has been overtaken by Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Poll: Kamala Plummets to 6th Place

Senator Kamala Harris (CA) is failing to sell her left-wing agenda to early Democratic primary voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada according to a new Morning Consult poll, which puts her in sixth place with just 6 percent of the vote, well behind the likes of Biden, Warren, and even Sanders. Her drop of eight points is being more or less tracked back to the former California Attorney General getting called out for her marijuana arrest record by Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) on the Democrats’ presidential debate stage last month. What should really alarm Harris, however, is that she–a black woman vying for the Democratic ticket–has just 1 percent support among black Democrats. Read more…

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has continued her decline in the 2020 Democrat presidential primary race, falling to sixth place among early state Democrat primary voters in the latest poll.

A new poll by Morning Consult reveals how Harris has dropped to the same level of support among early Democrat primary voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada as candidates like South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), and billionaire Tom Steyer.

Among early Democrat primary voters, a voting bloc crucial to winning the Democrat presidential nomination, Harris polls at six percent. Across Democrat primary voters, overall, Harris trails former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), at nine percent.

Trump Raises More 2Q Reelection Cash Than Obama

President Trump and the Republican National Committee’s reelection war chest just got $105 million heavier in the second quarter of 2019, outpacing Barack Obama by tens of millions of dollars. “No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm,” President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

President Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $105 million in the second quarter of 2019, beating President Barack Obama’s fundraising efforts by tens of millions during the same point in his reelection campaign.

Trump raised $54 million and the RNC brought in $51 million, the campaign said Tuesday. The two have a combined $100 million cash on hand and have raised more money online in the second quarter than the first half of 2018.

The haul was a “massive fundraising success,” Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm,” he said in a statement.

Castro Defends Trans People’s Right to Free Abortions

Former Obama HUD Secretary defended taxpayer-funded abortions for all during Wednesday night’s 2020 Democratic debate-even for men. When asked by MSNBC moderator Lester Holt if his healthcare plan would cover abortion, Castro responded: “Yes it would. I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom. I believe in reproductive justice, and what that means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community-a trans female-is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t exercise that right to choose. So I absolutely would cover that right to have an abortion.” Read more…

Here’s more from National Review…

Julian Castro, who served as secretary of housing and urban development under President Obama, offered a vigorous defense of abortion rights for transgender Americans during the first Democratic primary debate on Wednesday night.

Asked if his health-care platform would provide public funding for abortion, Castro replied emphatically in the affirmative and emphasized the importance of facilitating access to abortion for transgender women, or biological males incapable of baring children. He presumably intended to refer to transgender men, or biological women who have transitioned.

“All of you on stage support a women’s right to abortion. You all support some version of a government health-care option. Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary?” asked MSNBC debate moderator Lester Holt.

The poll shows Warren second with 19% among Nevada voters, forcing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) into third place with 13% of the vote. Joe Biden is still clocking in the lead at 36%, though the margin of error +/- 5.1 percentage points could render the entire poll a pointless exercise. Read more…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) 2020 presidential campaign continues to gain momentum as a new poll out of Nevada shows her firmly in second place behind former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democrat frontrunner.

Monmouth University released a new poll on Wednesday indicating Warren ranks second with 19 percent among Nevada voters.

Poll: Biden Drops 7 Points

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) pulled 18 percent support followed by Senators Kamala Harris (CA) at 8 percent and Elizabeth Warren (MA) at 7 percent. According to a report by The Hill, Biden’s “commanding lead” has been ratcheting up the pressure on Democratic lawmakers to endorse him over the other candidates. Read more…

Biden Compares Illegal Immigrants to His Irish Ancestors

Joe Biden is on the campaign trail now boldly declaring that illegal immigrants abusing America’s generous immigration policies are just like his Irish ancestors fleeing the potato famine. Those ancestors were “[like] somebody coming in Guadalajara today saying, ‘You know, I got a great idea family, let’s sell everything we have give it to a coyote take it across the border drop us in the desert, place that doesn’t want us, won’t that be fun?'” He then went on to describe the illegal immigrants overwhelming the U.S.-Mexico border as the “best” of Central American countries. Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Vice President Joe Biden defended Central American migrants taking advantage of asylum loopholes in the immigration laws, comparing them to his own ancestors leaving Ireland for the United States during the potato famine.

“One of the reasons we are the nation we are is because we’ve been able to cherry pick the best of every culture in the world,” Biden said, pointing to the American immigration system.

Biden commented on immigration during a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire on Tuesday.

That’s why we are who we are, think about it, whether it was my great-great grandfather getting on a coffin ship up in the Irish Sea to come here in the middle of famine or somebody coming in Guadalajara today saying, ‘You know, I got a great idea family, let’s sell everything we have give it to a coyote take it across the border drop us in the desert, place that doesn’t want us, won’t that be fun?’

AOC Joins Bernie to Undermine Joe Biden

Vermont Socialist and 2020 presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may have found his running mate: fellow socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who joined him on stage Monday evening to get college kids hopped up on climate alarmism. During the rally, Sanders even called for a “political revolution” as the only way to “take on an industry with unlimited wealth, unlimited power, and unlimited resources.” Last Friday AOC slammed “middle ground” climate change plans, such as those offered by former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Democrats may soon be so embroiled in in-fighting that nothing will be left of them in 2020. Read more…

Here’s more from The Hill…

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was in familiar territory Monday evening, speaking to a college auditorium of liberal-leaning students and young voters.

The 2020 presidential candidate joined progressive darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to preach the benefits of the ambitious Green New Deal climate plan, at a time when climate change is rising to prominence as a top issue for Democratic voters.

“How do we take on an industry with unlimited wealth, unlimited power and unlimited resources?” Sanders said of the fossil fuel industry. “We need a political revolution.”

Speaking at Howard University, a historic African American college just a mile from the U.S. Capitol Building, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez praised the tenets of the climate action plan that in part aims to transition the U.S. economy to a 100 percent renewable energy grid by 2030 and create green jobs in the process.

Gallup: Trump Approval Reaches Record High

Gallup’s latest poll puts President Trump at a 46% approval rating, the highest level since Gallup started asking the question. Among Republicans, Trump is carrying 91%, just a point shy of his 92% record set in November. The 50-year low in unemployment and the Mueller Report release and exoneration are speculated as the driving force behind his surge from a 39% approval rating back in March.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

President Trump’s approval rating has hit its highest levels since his inauguration in a recent poll.

Trump has hit 46% approval in the latest Gallup poll, the highest level since the polling group began asking the question. His approval in the poll has been as low as 35%, but the new numbers show an increasingly positive trend for the president. In early March, before the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Trump’s approval sat at 39% but jumped to 45% in the first half of April.

The poll found that Trump carries a 91% among Republicans, close to his record high of 92% support among the party back in November.

The support might be buoyed by the release of Mueller’s redacted report, which showed that Trump did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 presidential election but made no determination on whether he obstructed justice during the investigation.
