So the knives are out for Bernie in the DNC again. The party changed the rules to let Bloomberg into the next debate in a desperate search for a fall back for faltering Joe and the natives are NOT happy about it.

 

Democratic Party set to include Michael Bloomberg in debates with change to qualifying requirements

Coincidentally, as Bernie surges in Iowa, Hillary is suggesting that the Iowa caucuses are not legitimate.

Booker raising $6.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 is not in the same universe as Bloomberg, who might make that in a day.

I guess with the DNC money talks and color walks.

So after 76 years, the poll gets spiked, word is Bernie was doing very well and Biden was...well, not doing very well.

 

Des Moines Register abruptly cancels release of Dem poll ahead of Iowa caucuses

 

Look for the DNC to desperately try and keep Bernie below 50% of the delegates so Hillary! can arrive and win a brokered convention. :D

The DNC obviously want Trump to be reelected.

All they have to do is not be crazy and they just can't do it.

Its almost as if Trump has agents provocateur in the DNC sanctum.

 

One might think that, but I think that they are unaware of what they are doing and the results thereof. They seem very much caught in their ways and unable to change. Looking at how they have wasted the last four years not building up an actually strong candidate a nearly dead horse like Biden is dragged out as the preferred candidate. Really, the Democratic Party has about 44 million members according to Wikipedia. There should be one presentable candidate to find in that big pool of members.

IMHO, it goes back to the Clintonistas. Bill Clinton had a platform that he could triangulate with. However, in the wake of his two terms, the Dems haven't had a platform based on rational goals, its been cult of personality stuff.

Apparently the Dems White Knight is supposed to be the Bi$$ionare Bloomberg. I wonder how that will play with the Warren and Sanders crowds.

 

Some are saying he's just a stalking horse for Hillary! :o

 

If Bernie can't win the nomination on the first vote, the super delegates get to play in subsequent votes. If that happens, he'll take a payoff (house #4 isn't buying itself) and his supporters will not be pleased with the DNC.

California has this wierd election law where the top two primary candidates run in the final. Since Trump is not going to win California. I wonder what kind of mayhem can be done by Republicans for voting for the weakest Democrat?

According to Tim Pool, 10% of Dems are Never Bernies and claim theyll vote Trump if Sanders is the Dem nominee, while another 10% say theyll do the same if Biden gets the nod.

What's the demo of Never Bernies? Center-left folks with too much to lose?

The residents of the party's rich neighborhoods. That 10% Never Bernie number sounds like a reasonable estimate.

 

Bloomberg's choice of running mate will be interesting. It may also be everything.
