That really doesn't look to good for comrade Sanders. From 2017 till now his overall support has actually declined (see their graph) and this poll has significant oversampling of women voters. Tyler pointed out similar oversampling errors in polling in 2016.

From this post to God's ear.

MSM is gearing up for more Tulsi bashing...more proof that regular citizens are not the one's who choose who they want...corporations do...sick

I was never sure if Trump's anti-interventionist rhetoric during the campaign, was just empty promises, but he's been pretty disappointing on that count.

Gabbard is different. Her entire campaign is based on ending the regime change wars. I'd be surprised if she backed off those promises.

I wonder if Bernie would ever consider putting her on the ballot??

She'd make a nice replacement for Pence too!

ISL yesterday - "If Trump goes after Tulsi the way he went after Jeb Bush, I expect it will backfire. Godspeed Tulsi!"

She must surely be the most bullet proof candidate. The Russian stooge angle has already been tried and failed and in any case Trump would scarcely use it. The (alleged) connection with the BJP would surely be of little interest to the average voter.

On Israel? If an American Presidential candidate is not solid with AIPAC then the campaign funds and the media are difficult. If not solid with the Scofield Bible then many voters are. Is her stance sufficiently pro? Not for the Likudniks if they're as vocal as they are in England, that's for sure.

Anti-establishment - has spoken out against the Washington bubble and also against the financial cronies. But an "F" rating from the NRA, and though on outsourcing she has called for ending tax breaks for corporations that do it, it doesn't seem to be the central issue it was for Trump 2016.

Back at that time the Outsider family held their own caucus over here. We settled on backing Bernie if he got to be candidate, otherwise Trump. Agreed, some psephologists claim that that uneasy coalition had nil influence on the result, especially since most of the family welched on the deal later. Never trust a Democrat, even in England.

But I was told later that the American branch of the Outsider clan had arrived at much the same conclusion. Seems party labels don't have the pull they used to, not any more.

At least if this latest long shot were to succeed Trump might have broken the Beltway in for her, just a little. And she looks to be about the only sane American Democratic hopeful solidly against the Neocons and their regime change obsessions. So with ISL, but from too far away to be of the least consequence, we say "God speed Tulsi!"

Fred,

Things could not be going better for comrade Sanders. Why do you think the Iowa results have not been released? I will tell you why - because Bernie won.

Bernie and Buttigieg are clearly leading the pack at this point, and Biden and Warren have slipped well behind. Some polls have Biden coming in fifth in NH! Buttigieg is popular with liberal costal elites, but he is polling under 1% with black voters and nobody gets the D nomination without their support.

Fred

JamesT,

Iowa? Just imagine how the Democrats will run health care. Things are great for Bernie? Why is he polling lower in NH than two years ago? Buttigieg? I know mayor bottom wants to be on top but I don't think America will put him there.

Bernie just won NH. Bernie is to 2020 what Trump was to 2016.
