In a brand-new poll shared with The National Journal‘s Hotline, Joe Biden leads President Trump and Rep. Doug Collins will maybe head to a runoff with Sen. Kelly Loeffler. The poll was conducted by Public Policy Polling (538 rating: B) for End Citizens United. In the presidential matchup it’s Biden’s 49% to Trump’s 45. The
A massive study of Democratic primary voters from Monmouth University finds decent support for Stacey Abrams as Veep nominee. The study was a follow-up to more than 14,000 interviews of likely Democratic primary voters, with 2,240 of those participants taking a second round of online interviews giving a primary post-mortem. But, this is the real
In Sunday’s New York Times there was a bit of clarity in the Veepstakes: it remains muddy as ever. There does seem to be a greater push for Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. According to the Times, how Mayor bottoms handled the Covid-19 outbreak and civil unrest in Atlanta has elevated her profile. Bottoms and
A few thoughts that stand out from yesterday’s election: How swift and broad Gwinnett’s seachange is continues to astound me. By now I’m sure everyone’s seen that there were some 30,000 more votes cast in the Democratic Presidential Primary than Republican. And Georgia’s longest-serving school board member is likely going to lose her reelection bid.
Among the flood of Stacey-Abrams-Veepstakes articles, two this week caught my attention. First was Marc Thiessen’s column in The Washington Post comparing Abrams to Sarah Palin. No one doubts that Georgia House Minority Leader to VP is a big jump. But it’s hard to compare a ticketmate who’s greatest was the sheerest of veneers hiding
Yesterday Georgians thought the Vernon Jones cancer might finally be exorcised from our body politic. Well guess what: we were fools think Rep. Jones (D-Slimeball) would go out gracefully. He should just switch parties at this point. He fits in believing he’s a victim and with his thought-free flipflopping.
Less than 24 hours after supporting Governor Kemp’s decision to reopen Georgia, President Trump now “totally disagrees” with Kemp. Speaking at his daily supplication fest Covid-19 briefing, President Trump said: “I told the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, that I disagree strongly with his decision to open certain facilities.” Meanwhile Trump’s AG says he’s willing
This is your last chance to get on the Stacey Abrams for VP bandwagon before you become a bandwagoner (“I was with her before she sold out”). In a wide-ranging feature in Elle magazine, Abrams explicitly makes her case: I would be an excellent running mate. I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating
Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Slimeball) has carried a cloud of controversy over Georgia politics for 20 years with no signs of letting up. Today he endorsed President Trump (R-Slimeball) perhaps for all their similarities: ALLEGED sexual assault, being unfit for public office, rampant attention whoring.. I mean, you name it and they’re peas in a pod!
I suppose the real news here is Congressman John Lewis saying Joe Biden should pick a woman of color as his runningmate. It would be good to have a woman of color. It would be good to have a woman. It would be good to have a woman look like the rest of America —
