  • Folks Biden is not the answer he is not the best person. Too many gaffes and too long of a public record that can bite him the GRU has files on him. We need a fresh new young face hopefully that will happen……And no Bernie and Warren are not the answer we did to rally behind one of the new folks. We as demos should not waste time trying to win back Trump voters that is a lost cause. Harris and Beto are the best we have and there are enough votes in our nation to get them elected.

  • Fabricio Larios says:

    Neera Tandem should not be given a platform. She punched Bernie Sanders campaign manager because he asked Hillary about her vote on the Iraq war. Neera is a child and can't stand she supports hugely unpopular establishment candidates, she is a joke.

  • Todd Schneider says:

    Don’t believe these polls. I was called last week and I lied. I said I was for Biden but I will be supporting Bernie

  • Nera, how did cheating Bernie out of the nomination in '16', work out for you corporate democrats?
    Sad part the corporate democrats don't want Bernie & Warren. Biden is status quo.

  • Lisandro Esterga says:

    The GOP needs to be annihilated for their decades of crimes, culminating into the delivering of the Trump plague on the country!!!

  • Yes! We Democrats, Social Democrats & Independents sure do want someone who can defeat SpankyPants & destroy the Repugnant RepubliKKKans. Preferably any one except Ole Uncle Joe please!

  • *JOE "I need Medicare" BIDEN
    *BERNIE "Lose Again" Sanders
    *BETH "No Relation Pocohantas"
    *#BETORefund Stops Campaign
    *BUTTIGIEG: "Anthony's Weiner"
    *BOOKER: "Literally a Bonehead"
    *deBLASIO: "Nobody wants me"
    *BALANCE: 2%, 1%, 1/2%, 0%.

  • Just look at Trumps crowd sizes. Just like 2016, massive and shows you who is REALLY AHEAD IN POLLS.

    Use Independent Media for Real News

    The Google elites are really a mob. Rational Americans desperately need to view the distortion of events as the primary enterprise that Google provides. Has the public already forgotten that the RussiaGate hoax was promoted by the likes of Google?

  • Biden needs to take his marketing staff and get off the stage, and Larry, MSNBC- whose poll, what data? polls – depends on who is paying for them it seems….. like so much else, can be swayed to reach a desired conclusion…for messaging purposes. and let me guess. Landlines again?

  • Jovon BlackPixel says:

    fake polls… I hadn't seen a poll request. Have any of you??? They probably did the poll with their employees "facepalm"

  • Why do you still have this woman, Neera whatever her last name is, on? She’s a liar & a war head, part of the Crooked Hillary click.

  • Biden the spearhead of the democratic party…are you kidding me ..as a dem reg voter I think I gonna pass that time they are all a bunch of meshugene SMENDRIKHS mitn SEKHL in di tokhes.!!!!!!
