It just smells to me like the Dems are holding off on someone to slip in later with a staged messiah has come dance performance.

The US has been steadily rolling in this direction for decades, Republicans just got here first is all.

President Trump is packing them in at another in-your-face political rally in New Hampshire.  

Trump supporters started lining up yesterday in the rain, attending the rally as a show of voter force.

....Democrats wish they had it so good.

They will one day. Careful what they wish for - they'll have all the power they need now.

I've been saying for years that our world's political pendulums have been morphing into wrecking balls and now we're getting into the swing of things.

I AM getting to live long enough to see how it ends up after all. Got my popcorn ready to go too.

The way Sanders is discriminated against in the Democrats both in 2016 when he was robbed the nomination and this time around as well how the primary-procedure is rigged against him is another argument against having only two meaningful parties in the whole country may not be the best arrangement.

Nothing new at all....just more of the same.

President Trump doing what he does best...campaign mode:

Quote

"Will be in Manchester, New Hampshire, tonight for a big Rally. Want to shake up the Dems a little bit - they have a really boring deal going on," Trump tweeted. "Still waiting for the Iowa results, votes were fried. Big crowds in Manchester!"

Will you please f*^k off with your silly nonsense. FDR was not kept in power illegitimately by politicians.

Sure it is, anyone can clearly see Trump is practically a Founding Father.

Not only was FDR kept in power, but news media were forced to hide the fact that he had polio and used a wheel chair.

American voters were easily kept in the dark, because it was the radio age.

If you are going to worship another country's politics, try to get it right.  You only seem to like history when it is 1953.

Why shouldn't he be discriminated against? He's not a Democrat. And him as a candidate would guarantee a Trump re-election while preventing the Democrats from taking over the senate.

Biden is as good as finished. He never was of presidential calibre in the first place but now he is not even in the shape required of being president. His age is getting better of him. 

I wouldeven feel sorry for him if he weren't such a creepy snake.

I am sadly coming to agree. He's not had a good campaign. It's true that the two primaries so far have not played to his support base (almost no blacks in them) but even so he's done poorly. I mean, a gay guy beat his ass in Iowa, which is so full of religious kooks they don't even agree about evolution.

That's been exaggerated. He's just a touche-feellie guy from another era.

Sanders is as much a Democrat as Trump is a Republican. Trump is a Democrat who ran for the Republicans out of convenience. Saunders was never a Democrat. He was an independent. He only ran for the Dems as it made him more legit. Nothing in what either stands for is part of their respective party's mainstream platforms.

In the US independent politicians know if they don't join a mainstream party and hijack it, they do not get elected.

Trump, Saunders and Biden are all decrepit. they all need a diaper change.

None of these oldies will be around in 2024 when the next President is elected.

President Trump is now on a better glide path to re-election, eclipsing President Obama for approval rating at this point in their first terms.

I suspect his 'approval rating' is more a function of the shit show the Democrats are putting on, and their desperate focus on policies like slavery reparations, paying off the loans of recent college students, transgenderism, and an open border.

Maybe, but Trump has never suffered the magnitude of approval rating erosion that Obama did.   Trump's base has never abandoned him, so it is far easier to demonstrate improvement with smaller gains.

That says nothing good about the intelligence or honor of his base.

Doesn't matter...their "deplorable" votes count the same as any Trump hater, and a lot more than anyone who can't vote in the election at all.

Republicans and Trump supporters just ignore Trump's embarrassing stupid behaviour. Remember Sharpiegate? 

But now they'll get all serious with Biden's embarrassing behaviour. 

Hypocrisy is just par for the course I suppose. 

In a way you're right, they ignore it and care more about important stuff like policy.  For example, tax reform, bump stock ban, new NAFTA deal, new China trade deal, criminal justice reform, conservative supreme court judges, peace agreement in Afghanistan, etc, etc, etc.

Bernie Sanders would never win the general election, so the Democrats have finally woke from their drunken dance with "socialists" for Joe Biden, and old, white stand in for Barack Obama.

The African American voter base is the foundation for the Democratic Party, and that voter base just slapped the socialists upside the head.

And that's the prudent choice. 

Mayor Pete would have everything a moderate Dem would want. But African Americans didn't like him, but they like Biden. African Americans also didn't like Hillary so this choice is a good move to consolidate that support they lost in 2016.

With Bloomberg out and supporting Biden, Gotta wonder if the money he's been spending goes with it.

But that base cannot make up for the loss of disillusioned Bernie bros who will not turn out for Biden because of the DNC's  tactics.

...and more importantly, Joe Biden may win the Democrat delegates in southern states, but he will not win those states against Trump in the general.

Probably not until the general election.
