  2. I did that yesterday and got Warren, Bernie, Yang nn. It's inherently biased because of the questions (i.e. there are only 20, a ton of issues aren't included, a lot of the results depend on whether candidates are "considering" something rather than any hardline positions). Bernie's position on the gun question was surprising, but I still plan on voting for him (at this point).

    I only agreed with Biden on three things, which is...terrifying.
     
  3. Warren 18
    Sanders 14
    ...



    Biden 3.....

  10. Eh. That poll seems kind of weak. Online? And it has a margin of error of 5 percent?

    Though if there's one thing to be scared about in that poll it's Bloomberg at 9 percent. Just from advertising. Which has been wild--WaPo was practically unreadable for me the other day, he had so many ads taken out on the site. Sis has money.

  11. Me when Bloomberg used his Scrooge McDuck treasure vault to finally make our alma mater need-blind & increase the generosity of our financial aid packages, dramatically increasing the % of students coming from lower middle class & working class backgrounds:

  12. YouGov and Morning Consult are also online, to clarify.
    It's a pretty mundane sampling. People will decry the influence of independents, but each pollster has its own bias and the key is to compare the trend amongst the pollster itself.

    Knowing how lots of independents in America vote, it's not shocking how an increase in coverage for Joe Biden's desire cut Social Security and Warren's... whatever she was trying to do sees such a change.

    For example, it won't be shocking if YouGov, another online poll, sees an increase in Warren this week given that it oddly, for some reason, significantly oversamples Hillary Clinton voters of all things. The bad part of that though, if she does gain in it, is that YouGov has had Warren significantly higher than her national polling average all election cycle and even showed her gaining while the national trend was her collapsing ddd.

    The poll mainly reiterates something fairly well-known - that these kind of strategies tailor-made to win the Democratic primary by galvanizing certain key sections of the diehard Democratic base are more-often-than-not toxic to how independents view Democrats.

  13. I think part of Bernie's strength with independents is that he identifies as an independent himself. He's not formally associated with the Democratic party or brand, so it allows him to reach voters who otherwise might not be turned off by the Democrats but are interested in progressive policies

    It's part of a strong case why he'd be the most electable candidate.
     

  14. One for the ages
