It looks like Hillary is losing her shine with the DNC.

Her campaign can spin all day long but they understand trajectory as well as anyone else. That's why the DNC is floating Biden and Gore trial balloons. So, her support is and has always been: 1) Yellow Dog Democrats, 2) the DNC Party Machine, and 3) Wall Street. Yellow Dogs and Wall Street will continue to back her but when 1/3 of your support is sniffing elsewhere AND your trajectory continues in a sharp, downward motion, you're in serious trouble.

It's not about how smart you are or nice or able...it's a popularity contest. Being boring is about as bad for electability as being rabid. (Droolers don't get elected.)

If Hillary can't help but be boring and unlikeable and cold...she's already lost. Hard truths being what they are. You can't win the Presidency and be Hillary...you've got to be Bill or Barack or...cripes I hate saying this...Dubya. People have to like you; find you warm and caring and fun; and be interested in you.

5. I seriously think only the MSM and the Republicans

are interested in that issue. I don't think it's a factor in the primaries. If she were to get the nomination; however, it's all anyone would talk about. I think that's part of the reason the DNC is looking elsewhere. She's not looking quite so "inevitable" anymore.

Several people control the DNC and they decide who/how much support they're going to give to what candidates. DWS is the face they put on it and Hillary is their candidate, well, at least for the moment. Neither Biden nor Gore seems to have garnered too much excitement so far so I think she's safe for now.

The results from the outlier New Hampshire poll would be "purty" if the rest of the nation was as homogeneous as New Hampshire but alas it isn't. I just got back from seeing "Straight Outta Compton" in suburban Los Angeles. There were more non majority people in the theater than in the entire state of New Hampshire.

I told Liberal Stalwart this story. My gf and I rented a room from a woman who had a home in Van Nuys. Her daughter was a friend of O'Shea Jackson, Ice's son and the man who played him in the movie, when they were in high school together. She went to a Lakers game with him and said the security was massive. She also met Ice Cube and asked him if she could call him Cube. He said "call me Mr. Jackson."

.

Most Jewish retirees retire to Fl's east coast and most are Democrats. Most WASP retirees retire to FL's west coast and most are Republicans.

Also, FL is only 3.3% Jewish so it isn't as if they are a large voting bloc.

Hillary Clinton is just Machiavelli all up in this shit.

She managed to rig the debate schedule to stop Bernie Sanders from getting his message to the people.

She sent those fake BLM activists to his event to crowd Bernie Sanders off the stage.

She keeps calling his house and asking if "Lou Zer" is there.

I think I even heard a Bernie supporter accuse her of throwing a flaming poop bag through his window.

Seriously, I like Bernie Sanders--he's everything a liberal should be and I think that if he's President, it would really suck to watch him realize that Congress will never, ever work with him to accomplish anything important.

I don't think anyone claimed that Hillary "rigged the debate schedule." What happened was the DNC scheduled the debates WAY later than in previous presidential years. The late scheduling was a device the DNC is using to give voters less time to consider lesser-known candidates over the better-known candidate. It wasn't Hillary interfering but the DNC interfering on her behalf.

The rest of your post has a bit of spittle on it so I don't think I'll touch it.

33. The poster to which I was replying stated this:

"She [Hillary Clinton] managed to rig the debate schedule to stop Bernie Sanders from getting his message to the people."

I pointed out it that the accusations have not been that Hillary rigged the debate schedule but that the DNC scheduled the debate late to benefit their candidate.

26. Here are three definitions of the term "Yellow dog Democrat"....

Please tell me which, if either, or all three, apply to Senator Booker:

Someone (generally from the South) who would vote for a yellow dog if it was a Democrat. Alternately, someone who would rather vote for a yellow dog than a Republican. The term probably dates back to the 19th century and gained national recognition in the 1928 Presidential election. Today, used most often as a term of approval or self-identification.

My daddy was a yellow dog Democrat and my granddaddy was a yellow dog Democrat — I’ll never vote Republican.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Yellow+Dog+Democrat


or

Yellow Dog Democrats was a political term applied to voters in the Southern United States who voted solely for candidates who represented the Democratic Party. The term originated in the late 19th century. These voters would allegedly "vote for a yellow dog before they would vote for any Republican".[1][2] The term is now more generally applied to refer to any Democrat who will vote a straight party ticket under any circumstances.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_dog_Democrat


or, maybe:

Yellow Dog Democrats

After Republican President Abraham Lincoln defeated the Confederacy, many Southern Democrats said they would rather “vote for a yellow dog before they would vote for any Republican.”
Today, the term refers to loyal Democratic voters who vote the straight party line.

57. The list of Senators who have endorsed Clinton is actually longer -

- Elizabeth Warren has signed a letter urging Clinton to run and another Senator (forget who it is, but I'll find it!) just announced that he's endorsing Clinton.

So, of 44 Democratic Senators 32 of them have endorsed Hillary Clinton, including your highlighted Patrick Leahy, Sanders' fellow Vermont Senator.

You can also add the current Governor of Vermont AND the current mayor of Burlington along with former Vermont Governor, Howard Dean.

Yeah, the DNC is abandoning Hillary Clinton!

The Democratic Party was taken over by the Third Way Corporate "Democrats" during the Bill Clinton Administration and they haven't let go. Hillary is their candidate. Hillary will do the bidding for Big Business just as she did their bidding when she was SOS. The DNC let Bernie run on the Democratic Party ticket thinking he wouldn't have a chance. They badly misjudged Bernie's candidacy as they've badly misjudged so many other things and now they're trying to figure out if there is another more palatable candidate they can back.

25. I support Clinton, but still I would feel better if there were a legitimate backup candidate in case

she falters. I would be happy with any of Clinton, Sanders, O'Malley, Biden, or Gore as president. But the key words are "as president."

Right now, the only declared candidate with any real chance of becoming president is Clinton. Sanders would get crushed in the GE, and O'Malley is polling within zero of the margin of error. I actually agree that the DNC is probably floating trial balloons, and that's probably a smart thing to do. Either Biden or Gore would make for a strong backup in case Hillary falters somewhere down the road.

Personally, I think Gore would be better than Biden. I like Biden but don't think he would make for a great top of the ticket. But Gore could win.

Here's a site that has general election matchups. You have to select Sanders and Clinton yourself, I can't link to them directly.
http://www.270towin.com/2016-polls/2016-general-election-matchups/

The most recent Sanders matchups are from Quinnipiac, which has Sanders behind Walker 37-42 and Bush 39-44. That same poll has Clinton 41-42 behind Bush and 44-43 ahead of Walker. The most recent Clinton matchups come from Morning Consult, where she is ahead of the whole GOP, including 44-41 over Bush and 48-35 over Walker.

That site also shows polls with Sanders beating Walker (CNN 7/26), and within margin of error against Bush and Rubio. Hardly getting "crushed" as you put it. And this is a year out when there are still tons of people who have not even heard of Sanders, or heard enough to form an opinion of him. (Something that could be said about many of the Republican candidates as well, I admit.)

All that said, those national polls are meaningless, because it's all about the electoral college, and many states are going to go one way or the other no matter what. What will really matter are how they match up in key states. Unfortunately there are few, if any polls showing how Sanders matches up against the Republican lineup in, say, Florida or Ohio.

Play variations of that in commercials over and over again. From the end of August 2016 to November 2016.

Talk about the failures of North Korea, the USSR, how China and Vietnam are becoming Capitalist, etc.

50% of America won't vote for a Socialist. Sanders is thus 50% down as a high watermark after all of that.

That would be one of the easiest campaigns for a Republican candidate in history. They wouldn't even have to work for that one.

she is trying to hide something or cover it up with some vagueness. And, that is going to linger. And to the information limited they will likely not change that perception. It's the old psychological primacy principle at work. What goes into ones mind first often leaves last.

62. Polling outfits not willing to remove Bidens name is because of the DNC.

 

Flat out tin foil. All the way around. Link to the DNC floating Gore?

66. I don't think there is evidence of DNC floating anyone

I believe that that is conjecture on the part of the OP... that if things about alternative mainstream Dems start appearing in the press, the DNC must be behind it.

As for what is being said about Gore, it is summed up here:

73. It'd be nice if the DNC tried to promote the Democratic Party

 

If she wins the nomination, the GOP wins their only chance at the White House. If she wins the general election, the GOP wins.

She is damaged goods, represents the highest bidder, and has never provided leadership on any progressive issue.

If the DNC is floating trial balloons for alternatives who will promote their corporate agenda, that's good. It means their great white hope ain't, and their iron grip over the message is loosening.

87. Huummmmm, it doesn't look like Bernie's shine is increasing in the DNC, other names added to the

possibilities of entering the race says to me that they are not overjoyed with Bernie, so as I have stated several times, if Hillary drops out of the race there is several more possible candidates who can jump in, Bernie will not be the DNC nominee.

88. I think we can all agree that

Bernie was never going to be the DNC pick. They let him in thinking he didn't have a chance and to give the appearance of competition. As has often been the case, they underestimated him and never even factored in the festering anger of the 99%. Apparently, none of them have ever actually cracked a history book.

100. The festering anger is not including the 118 current members in Congress and the 15 former members

who have endorsed Hillary. I think the festering anger of the 99% is over estimating.

97. Whoever they choose, their candidates will be Third Way right centrists spouting phony

populist rhetoric in an effort to convince gullible people that they actually care about their concerns.

They couldn't care less, Third Way centrists don't give a rat's ass about the problems of the 99%, unless addressing the concerns of the 99% will in some way benefit the global Military Industrial Financial Complex.

The DNC has been exposed, and whichever Third Way corporate puppet they choose to run against Democrats will be scrutinized thoroughly, and their lies will not be able to stand in the light of day.

95. the official faction of the party gets as much money if they win or if they lose

they've been long used to being able to fudge primaries and torpedoeing even the challenger who's ahead of the Republican

they really don't know how to campaign anymore, least not in the primaries: they have "listening sessions" then jet off to meet with the big doners; then they're supposed to just promise the moon and stars, with the important caveat that any details will be hammered out January 2017

131. HRC has been a lifelong Democrat and built her coalition within the Dem party

Bernie said he decided to run "as a Democrat" because he needed the Democrat primary and caucus system, even thoughhe has described both the GOP and the Dems as corrupt. Bernie doesn't have a Dem coalition and it is impossible to get anything within building consensus and coalitions. So in all of Bernie's realness and truthfulness, he decided to run as a Democrat because he needed the infrastructure of the Dem party to make a realistic presidential bid. I hope I will not have to hold my nose and vote for Bernie. I'm working hard to make sure he is NOT the Dem nominee for 2016.

132. I am right there with you

If I knew how to post pictures I would post one that tells independents how to register as Democrats so they can vote for Bernie. I would say more but Bernie fans are everywhere and I keep getting my comments removed because the jury is stacked with his supporters.

Since juries are anonymous, how would you know a jury is "stacked with his supporters?" Sounds a little paranoid to me.

137. Interesting

I have never had a problem until I reply to Bernie fans. It's like you guys are on the constant watch for anything to rate down and since this and other sites are overwhelmingly pro Bernie it seems to makes sense that the jury would be loaded with Bernie fans.

Now there you make another interesting comment. I called a Bernie fan delusional and had my comment hidden. Then on another I called Bernie fans "Berniebots" and it was hidden. You just called me paranoid. How is that different? Oh, and just because you are paranoid it doesn't mean you are wrong.

134. HRC is the front-runner in the Dem Party.

She has the support of the majority of Democrats.

But despite this undisputed position, the DNC has allegedly decided to press Biden and Gore into the race, in order to "save" the Party from the embarrassment of already having a candidate that polls higher than any other Dem in the race, and any Klown Kar occupant.

Yes, of course - this makes SO MUCH SENSE. I'm so glad you figured it out.

Now can you provide the evidence that the DNC is "floating Gore/Biden trial balloons"?

I know you must have said evidence. Surely you wouldn't think of posting something this ridiculous if you didn't have the facts to back it up.

I await the links that will undoubtedly support your assertions.
