Former VP Joe Biden Still Leads the Democratic Primary Race

-Let’s get to the news. According to a new poll,
former Vice President Joe Biden still leads the Democratic
primary race, despite the best efforts
of this man. [ Laughter ] “The New York Times”
is reporting that former Vice President
Joe Biden is trying to reduce
his number of gaffes by using a teleprompter
for speeches. Unfortunately, he’s already been
caught on camera massaging it. [ Laughter ] The Trump administration has
announced starting in October, immigrants applying for
a green card will be subject
to a wealth test. It will look something
like this. [ Audience ohs ] According to fact checkers, President Trump
has called someone good-looking or great-looking
in speeches or tweets 35 times since he took office, and still,
no one’s said it back. [ Laughter ] “You’re very good looking.” Thank you. [ Laughter ] “Do you have anything
you’d like to add?” [ Laughter ] Goodbye. [ Laughter ] Officials at Hong Kong
International Airport suspended flights
for the second day in a row after political protesters
took over the terminal, and LaGuardia suspended flights after a rat
was seen working at Cinnabon. [ Laughter ] Officials at a wildlife
rehabilitation center in Arkansas have developed
a specially designed wheelchair to help a baby raccoon
learn to walk. “Cool, cool,” said people
without health insurance. [ Laughter ] And finally, a German man
has raised over $700 on a GoFundMe page to help pay
for his rehabilitation from a potentially
life-threatening erection. Said the man, “With your help,
I can beat this thing.”

Pause at 0:00 – no he fucking doesn’t Seth. By absolutely no measure is Biden ahead of Sanders. Sanders has raised more $ from more individual donors. Stop repeating this bs, Biden had a hot second and then the actual data came out: https://boingboing.net/2019/08/11/36m-from-746k-donors.html

Maybe take a ‘closer look’.

This is crazy. Democrats complain about old politics and want to elect an elder out of date. Let’s choose someone young!

Joe Biden is such a bad candidate if he wins, democrats deserve to lose(they of course should not)
because if they get any of the necessary new voters the lack of new solutions will make it seem to be in spite of the bad dem candidate, and against donald trump, not because people have any chance for a better future.

This is the ideocracys tendency towards self destruction, culminating in a Biden or bust mentality.
Especially among those personally supporting Biden or any other non progressive candidate.
Going against left wing policy for century's meant going against science, evidence and ethics, and was almost always proven wrong by history. (from wars to financial crises to all the common social crises only plaguing one of the industrial nations(USA))
Denial of reality is the brand of trump/nationalists but the denial of reason, with public support, was introduced and is being practiced all around the world by conservative(including centrist) governments. (Poland/UK/USA/Hungary/Germany/Italy/Japan etc.)

My wish:
Could those of you that cannot overcome basic human fallacy's, or cannot stand true to there own ignorance and do not accept already working policy of other nations please stop calling non centrists unreasonable? There are many reasonable centrists out there my anger about you makes talking with them difficult.*

*I cannot claim that i am reasonable because it would always seem that way to oneself.

I don't think you should be talking about politics. Maybe you should stick to comedy. This is a comedy show, isn't it ? It makes me think that the people who are paying you to do comedy are actually more interested in controlling the public's perspective on politics and who to vote for …

Of course Biden is still in the lead. The corporate media behemoth is behind him, excusing his gaffes and making sure everyone is laughing at his opponents. This happens every 20 years or so, when our rulers decide we need a less horrible frontperson for their swindle. Eight years of Bush, that's enough money made for now with the useful idiot, throw the peasants an Obama, then punch them in the nuts again with a fresh Republican Nazi useful idiot after two terms.

Seth should be ashamed he keeps pushing the corporate agenda that Joe Biden is the front-runner. He's not. He never has been. He's a corporate shill.

I've been a registered voter since Bush Sr… Not once have I ever been polled… No one in my family has ever been polled… No friends of mine, whom I might add helped campaign for Bernie Sanders, and then voted for Trump in 2016 have ever been polled. Co-workers have never been polled… So I'm starting to really wonder… How the hell exactly does these polls work? Corporate doners? Where does this information come from? Has anyone ever been polled?

It's disappointing to me that Biden is the front runner because why?
Why when change is DESPERATELY needed do people keep going to what's familiar? Warren has been consistent in her plans and what she thinks needs to change to better the government and quality of life even before she announced she was running. Sanders has been consistent. Harris, O'Rourke, and Buttigieg are also good to have in the race. Change and different perspectives
But no, another old white guy (who probably is wealthy) who makes countless dumbass comments or gaffes. Who has his own scandals and controversies

Non-partisan post: Now that a new election cycle is upon us, a plethora of political groups are seeking donations, including obscure, even nefarious, organizations. When every dollar counts, it's crucial your gifts directly benefit your party. To that end, consider donating directly to your party's official National Committee. Also, remember to contact your county Elections Office to register to vote and to arrange to vote by mail or in person.
