Larry Hogan should join the race in the next week or so. I think he will do very well in a two or three-person race.

New Hampshire poll taken after DeSantis dropped out. Trump was 11 points ahead of Nikki Haley before the DeSantis dropped out now he's 27 points ahead. There's a huge pressure on her to just drop out entirely.

This is how the odds have changed since the Iowa caucus



On the day of the caucus they were Trump 37 and Biden 29.

Trump's odds go up almost daily now. This is two days later from the one I posted above and Trump has gone up in every one of these oddsmakers predictions. They all have him 40 and above now. After the New Hampshire primary tomorrow look for him to go up even higher.

This is fascinating. The above was from yesterday and the one I'm posting now was on the evening of the New Hampshire primary and look how much Trump has gone up in just 24 hours. Nothing has even happened and look how things changed since yesterday. After the primary it'll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow.

I'm surprised Obama is not getting a bump. I'm seeing many stories from both the left and right speculating about her jumping in. The stories are fed by rumors that she and her husband have been meeting with their high end donors. The (conspiracy?) theory goes like this:

Biden, citing health reasons, will drop out of the race in May. Why wait until May? The theory says this would minimize Biden's time as a lame duck while still giving his replacement time to optimally rearrange the pieces on the game board heading into the summer convention season and the general election beyond.

With Biden out, Obama rides in to the rescue. She declares that, although she never intended to seek office, the terrifying evil must be defeated and the country must band together and yada yada yada. The press and the people then cheer her bravery as she charges into the arena, defeats the orange dragon and we all live happily ever after (at least for the next eight years). The end.

Does this sound like a possibility or a pipe dream? Despite its unprecedented nature, in this crazy century I won't say it's impossible. In fact, it might even work. As things stand now, however, I can't bet on her. Consider all the obstacles that need to be overcome and the people that would have to play ball and step aside including a sitting Veep and POTUS himself.

Still, this story does have the look of a trial balloon intentionally leaked to see if it floats (and easily denied if it doesn't). If people read the rumor tea leaves, look at Obama's current odds and decide she's worth betting money on, I wouldn't call them crazy.

There is a missing piece here. By May primary season is effectively over. Meaning an old-school floor fight. How important are the superdelegates these days? I heard they were cutting them back but have heard nothing sense. The Obamas would need to convince that Michelle is the future and not the past.

An outside chance but in this day and age who knows.

You mean, with the Democrats? After the complaints by the Sanders supporters that the Superdelegates had too much influence in getting Clinton nominated in 2016, the rules were changed for 2020; Superdelegates are not allowed to vote on the first ballot for President, unless it is clear that their votes will not change the result.
Also remember that there aren't that many of them - you have to be a Democrat who is any of:
* a member of the Democratic National Committee;
* a sitting member of Congress;
* a sitting Governor;
* a former Speaker, House Minority Leader, or Senate Majority or Minority Leader;
* a former DNC chair;
* President Biden, and former Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Carter;
* Vice-President Harris, and former Vice-President Gore
According to the 2024 Call to the Democratic National Convention, there are 3770 "pledged" delegates and 749 Superdelegates as of March, 2023.

749 of about 4500 is actually quite a lot. They are the de facto tiebreaker.

Of course, that assumes that, if there is no majority on the first ballot, the parties that be don't go into some back room at the convention center and work out a deal to make absolutely sure there is a nominee on the second ballot - otherwise, they might as well declare Trump the President then and there.

Even this assumes that they don't have a plan where, if there is no guaranteed winner on the first ballot, they have enough minor candidates officially withdraw (which "should" release their delegates on the first ballot; it depends on the state) so that one can be arranged, as even having to go to a second ballot may send the message, "We can't choose a Democrat to be President; why should you?"

That I do not see the logic in.

If there is an old school floor fight, is any Trump voter going to vote for Trump more?

Is any Democrat going to vote Trump because of it? OK, I will concede some will stay home, but that is in a more normal election. Everything about Trump breaks all convention, no pun.

Mr and Mrs average voter are usually so uninformed they will think "floor fight" is a WWE PPV event.

I think that if the Democrats can't select a nominee in two ballots, then a lot of the undecided voters are going to think long and hard before voting for whoever the party chooses. Not everybody who voted for Biden in 2020 is necessarily a "Never Trumper."

They were either Nevers or just (D) voters. Biden has the thinnest support base since probably Carter. Clinton kind of got elected without such a base, an accidental POTUS. But he built some over time. I am drifting towards a warning here so lets get it back to the numbers. A floor fight could drift some supporters to a Nader-style 3rd party type. Been a quarter centurt subce we gave had one of those. IOW, anyone under age 35 or so does not remember how they draw votes off. So one could catch.

I'm not going to do that, but if she DOES win POTUS, or at least the nomination, I'm going to come back here and say to everyone, "I told you so!"

If she doesn't I'll just admit I was wrong.

Haley is obviously a longshot but one worth taking a close look at. As the only remaining alternative candidate on the right, should Trump be forced out of the race she would have the strongest claim to the nomination.

The rumors for Haley are that her campaign will be kept alive by left wing donors. The idea is that she'd stir up dissent on the right and also act as a last line of defense. If the left is going to lose, they want to lose to Haley who is moderate and even sympathetic on some issues the left holds dear. Well, that and she isn't Trump.

Betting on Haley, however, really comes down to if you think Trump will make it unscathed to election day.

you might be right but I think she may be way more popular now than 4 years ago

I don't remember her endorsing Biden in 2020 - but I think it might be a bigger thing now

Biden is trailing - I believe he was well ahead in the polls in 2020

and if the Chiefs win the SB with her boyfriend - and she's there - she might become even more popular - if that's possible

What amazes me is how the MAGA movement is focusing on her. A few years ago, she asked her fans to register to vote, and supposedly, 35,000 did in a very short time. Why pick a fight with someone with such a popular following? It's another circular firing squad.
I spent about six hours driving to western New Mexico and back yesterday. There aren't many English language radio in that region, so I listened to talk radio. Two different hosts proclaimed the fix is in. Kelce will win the MVP, propose to Swift, and she'll request a Spring 2025 wedding at the White House, which is only possible if the current occupant is still there. There was even bizarre speculation on why the game is being held in Nevada. Some nutjob called in to say the plan was for an Obama/Swift ticket, and the host took him seriously. There was also speculation that the Baldwin prosecution is designed to fail while giving him street credibility for a future run for office. I can only imagine what a steady diet of that hoey can do to a person.

Heh heh. They're like like gateway drug wagers designed to get Swifties into sports betting.

Biden is trailing - I believe he was well ahead in the polls in 2020

link to original post



Someone find a trump v. Biden poll from 2/1/20 and fact check this post.

Edit: did it myself.

link to original post


don't wanna make a big deal out of this
but per the link - Pew Research
Biden was ahead 52% to 42% with one month left to go in 2020

You are comparing apples to oranges.

Itís February of this election year. Youíre talking about a poll done in October of that election year.

Taylor Swift has giant arena concerts in Miami, New Orleans, and Indianapolis in late October and the first weekend of November 2024.

If she were to make a political endorsement, it would probably be at one of them.

Naw. If she endorses him, it will be in the Rose Garden, at a huge media event that Fox won't cover. Some talking heads are threatening that an endorsement will ruin her career. It's as if they are pushing her into doing it.
We are living in an interesting time.

The South Carolina primary for Democrats took place over the weekend. Biden won with 96% of the vote. Voter turnout was 4%. Make of that what you will.

Nevada holds it's primary tomorrow. Republicans will also hold a caucus on Thursday. A candidate may only enter one or the other. The caucus will deal out the delegates. The primary gives nothing. Trump has entered the caucus. Nikki Haley has entered the primary. Make of that what you will.

A recent Quinnipiac poll of registered voters has Biden leading Trump by 6 points. A recent NBC poll has Trump leading Biden by 5 points. Make of that what you will.

This is after the New Hampshire primary.

Here's today's...

Trump steady. Biden down. Both Obama and Newsom ticking upward.

What's fascinating about this election is that you have no idea if the two main candidates--due to legal and/or health reasons--will even make it to election day. We're down the rabbit hole.

Interesting. So the 5 Democrats lead Trump by 6%. So more likely to be a Dem than Trump. As Iíve been sayingÖ

Will you commit to giving me $5k if she wins the Presidency? I mean, your post implies she has ZERO chance, right? So if she has ZERO chance you have no risk, right? Or DOES she have a chance? And you wonít make that commitment?

So which is it?

If Biden is even on the ballot in November. Lots of Insiders on both sides keep saying there's no way Biden's going to be the candidate after the convention. It certainly won't be Michelle Obama, she has said in no uncertain terms that there's no way she's running. The dark horse is Kennedy, nobody knows how many votes he's going to pull away from the Democratic candidate.
