WSJ/NBC Poll: Hillary With Wide Lead Over All GOP Opponents.

It's 1 poll, but a good one for Hillary Clinton:

Looking ahead to the general election, Clinton also leads Bush by eight points (48 percent to 40 percent), Rubio by 10 points (50 percent to 40 percent) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by 14 (51 percent to 37 percent).

Clinton is supported by 75% of Dem voters in the primary race, with Sanders at 15, Webb at 4, and O'Malley 2.

    "The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations."

    The party that welcomed with open arms Strom Thurmond who campaigned on lynching black Americans and who's hero Ronald Reagan was against civil rights and ending voting discrimination in the south. The very same president who kicked off his campaign in Philadelphia MS as a message to the segregationists that he stood with them.

    I love how you guys want to pick and choose some stupid event but ignore the GOP's 50 year love affair with segregationists and racism. You can't erase what you've done. The only thing you can do is admit what you've done, ask for forgiveness for those you wronged and lied about and move on. You are going to be perpetually stuck in hell of your own making until you can do that.

    He spoke to a crowd of about 5500. So there will soon be quite a few Bernie Sanders bumper stickers showing up.

    We got there about an hour early and the gym was already about a quarter full. The pre-speech music was all Neil Young, all the time. And the speech was all red meat. If they do a "Carnivores for Sanders" bumper sticker I might consider giving my baby her very first bumper sticker. Actually, the first ever sticker on any of my cars.

    Probably that particular bumper sticker wouldn't go over really big in Boulder, though.

    by KeysDan on Tue Jun 23, 2015 at 11:46:08 AM EST
    "clown car" is not just a joke, it is descriptive.  Clowns occupy it, although that may be clown libel.   Whatever demarcation chosen--reason v insanity, 50 shades of oligarchy, lesser of two evils, there is a difference for America in the result and our future.  

    And, the difference is great; the stakes are greater.  A look at the Republican candidates' performance ranges from not-ready for prime time to appallingly not ready for any time. It took the high rollers choice, Jeb!, a week to decide if he would invade Iraq knowing what we know now. Rubio did not understand the question.  Walker could handle ISIS because he crushed teachers and government workers retirements and their opportunities to negotiate. His campaign experience is now broadened by attacking his enemy, the University of Wisconsin.

    Upholding the Constitution will be difficult for them to subscribe to when they claim, as Jeb did last week when he told the "Faith and Freedom Coalition" that the debate over marriage equality should continue "irrespective of what the Court's say."  What Jeb! said, for the rest, in one way or another.

    And, of course, in the wake (literally) of the murderous terror attack in Charleston killing nine black men and women at prayer, and a suspect who posts a racist manifesto, wants to start a race war, has racist flags, and tells a survivor that they must go--- the candidate's theme was that this was an attack on religious liberty, a loner looking for Christians to kill.

    And, then there is that treasured Republican bauble, the Confederate flag.  The first admonition was that it is not THE Confederate flag, it is a battle flag.  OK. Thank you.  Now how about that battle flag, or whatever, flying high?  Should it go?  Inquiring reporters want to know.

    The lot of them did not know whether to call a meeting or call a cab.  Most looked for a cab.  Then saved by the meeting of the high rollers-- Mitt surprised not only because of his tweet, reiterating what he said before, but more so, because he did not flip flop.  Yes, take it down. See, aren't we decisive.  Reason v. insanity. Presidential or Clown?  Take your pick.

    somewhere down the line Hillary should signal that an important, high-ranking position is being reserved for Congressman Sanders in her administration. (Can't make it politically too obvious.)

    She has to dispel the idea that's being circulated these days that she's only tacking left because of the pressure Bernie's bringing. A Cabinet Post (not sure which one) would go a long way to knock out that idea, AND, what better way to signal the Country that there's a new sheriff coming to Town!

    Personally, my dream is for Hillary to show, once and for all that:

    A. The country made a huge mistake in the 2007 Primaries, (experience does matter.)


    B. How much can be accomplished in spite of an intransient, anti-American, insanely obstructionist, Republican Party.

    enough that Clinton can't sidle and slide back to the right and has to actually run on the more leftward positions she's taken as a result of his presence, and the desire to capture what I will call Elizabeth Warren voters.

    For Clinton to dog-whistle a Cabinet position for Bernie would be pretty much the height of queenly entitlement and inevitability, at least at this stage, and the media would savage her for it - as would a lot of Sanders supporters.

    I still think she's got a ways to go on some issues.  Let's get detailed on trade, on privacy rights, on the stranglehold the national security industry has on information, on the financial industry and accountability, on social safety net programs.  If she's going to insist that Edward Snowden in a criminal who should be brought to justice, that we need to "fix" Social Security, if she's in favor of fast-track and the TPP, as well as the Trans-Canada pipeline - to name a few - she's not getting my vote.

    I'll vote for Bernie in the primary and see where Clinton is if she wins the nomination; chances are pretty good, though, that I'll be voting Green again.

    I know quite a lot of people, who, if you told them Bernie Sanders is a Socialist, would respond: What? A Socialist? That's it! No way that bum gets my vote! As he waddles back to the bar, a shitt-eating grin on his face, so proud of his "clever" retort. But, ask him if he knows what a Socialist is, and that smirk suddenly disappears, replaced by a more natural, baboon-like expression, as he ponders whether he should scratch his head, or pick his nose.

    Just can't be exorcised. The dictionary doesn't seem to help. Getting them to understand that their military is a very socialist system so they already have socialists in power doesn't seem to help. Pointing out that other first world countries are having a great life and have socialist parties and socialist representatives doesn't help. I'm tired at that point, it's a paper demon that cannot be shredded. We are brainwashed from the cradle to the grave that we have no socialist aspects to our government or economy and if we knowingly introduced anything like that to our system Murika would implode.

    Runs for president

    The announcement was almost as surreal as Trumps.   This one really just gives me the creeps.

    You're not supposed to make fun of someone's looks, weight, height, etc. So, freaken sue me already. I can't stop, and, I won't stop.

    And, now, I get it, the whole creation thing. This cat, Jindal, no way was he born through the normal biological forces. He really, really looks like an attempted creation-gone-very-very-wrong.

    Also, back to the pc factor for a moment. Were Jindal even a shadow of a functioning, empathetic, Bio-Blob, sometimes referred to as a "human," I'd hold back a little. So, do yourselves a favor, dear readers. Just do a little Google with this guy (it won't take long to make my point) and try to figure out how America could possibly have gone so very, very wayward that, with 20, or so, wom-bats already in the ring, this guy is so delusional as to think he's got even a one-in 20 billion chance? And, there are real people with real money backing this thing that moves, and makes grunting sounds.

    I'm speechless, bye, bye, for now.

    coated in fried cheese.

    That smile make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

    I suspect he might be running for VP.  But still.  Who would do that.  He has 27% approval in his own state.

    want him as their VP? He might make the GOP lose LA he's so unpopular. You know, give the voters of LA one last chance to express their displeasure.
