Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
We here at the Campaign Update have consistently noted that Democrat voters love being lied to, and they appear determined to prove us right. If you hadn’t already picked up on it, the biggest surge in the Democrat nominating race over the past couple of months has not come from Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has settled into polling consistently in the 7-8% support range. While that’s fairly respectable, we might have expected a little better performance from a guy who has received tens of millions of dollars in free, fawning air time from our fake news media since March.
No, the biggest surge has come from exactly the source we should have all anticipated, the life-long human fraud who has gotten everything she has achieved in life by lying. This is a woman who doesn’t just lie about economics, not just about the law, not just about public policy; oh, no, that’s not nearly enough. Elizabeth Warren is a woman who has spent her entire adult life disgracefully lying about who she even is as a person, pretending to be of American Indian descent in order to move ahead in line for plum jobs, to obtain licenses to practice law, and even to get elected to the United States Senate.
Making things even more hilarious – and thus making her even more appealing to liar-obsessed Democrat voters – Warren had become so bought into her own line of BS that she even resorted to taking a DNA test to prove her life of lies last year. When the test came back with the finding that she might – maybe – have 1/1024th native American blood in her stream, she immediately paraded around on a public “victory” tour. Only the loud objections from several Indian Tribes put a stop to that nonsense.
But why would it surprise us that her initial reaction to having been publicly proven to be a heinous, life-long fraud would be to stage a celebration? After all, this is a woman who wants to be the Democrat presidential nominee, and while she’s a horribly dishonest individual, she isn’t stupid. She knows what appeals most to her party’s demented voter base, and that DNA test was proof she had the main qualification to win their support.
You have to think like these Democrats think, folks. I know it’s hard, but once you do, everything they do makes perfect sense.
Anyway, getting to the point here, we’ve had a spate of new polls of the Democrat race released in the past few days, and they show a clear Lieawatha surge, one that well outpaces the little boomlet Mayor Pete’s enjoyed. Quinnipiac, which showed Warren getting just 4% support in March, now has her at a very strong 15%, just 4 points behind the Commie. Economist/YouGov, meanwhile, has her at 16%, 4 points ahead of the old Bolshevik, and just 11 points behind Creepy Uncle Joe.
At the state level, a new Des Moines Register poll has her surging to 15% support in that state, in a virtual tie with the Commie and 9 points behind Biden. In Nevada, another key early caucus state, a new poll by Monmouth shows her firmly in second place at 19% support.
And a note about Warren consistently now getting at or above that 15% support level: That’s the level of votes a candidate must attain to win delegates in the party’s new proportional system for 2020. Thus, Lieawatha now joins Biden and the Commie as the only candidates consistently breaching that key threshold.
Little Mouth Always Running’s recent surge, along with her solid fundraising efforts, have now clearly established her as the strongest woman in the race. Kamala Harris, who all the “experts” believed was the odds-on favorite to be the main challenger to Biden back in January, continues to struggle and her polling numbers have settled into an essential tie with Mayor Pete. Although she on the surface seems like a female carbon political copy of Barack Hussein Obama his own self, she so far simply lacks Obama’s ability to connect with voters.
In other words, Kamala is just a lousy candidate. Who knows – maybe if she made up a back story about how her great grandmother always told her she was a space alien, that might be an obvious-enough lie to steal voters away from Fauxcahontas. Do lies about Aliens trump lies about Indians in demented Democrat thought? Hard to know until it’s been tried, Kamala.
In any event, the math on this race is becoming increasingly clear as the contestants lurch towards their first debates later this month. We have a top tier of contenders that consists of the Creepy Uncle every family wants to hide in the basement, a Commie trying to pretend he’s merely a socialist, a fake Indian, a modestly unsuccessful mayor of a mid-size city most Americans have never heard of, and a Senator who advanced her career by having a years-long affair with a power broker twice her age. The other 20 or so candidates need to devise better sets of lies if they want to move up the pecking order.
Way to go, Democrats!
That is all.
