I never told you guys about my friend who was on vacation in London-when his mother in Law fell and broker her hip. They’re all pretty left leaning and we’re singing the praises of the care she received under the NHS

That is until they arrived back in Boston and went to the doctor. Well the “free” surgery was a dogs dinner and whole thing had to be undone and redone. The poor woman hasn’t been right since

No wonder you hate data so much. You have an unverified anecdote for everything.

It actually happened, as did the conversation with the Harvard professor.

Doesn't take too much these for someone to call "homophobia!". Somebody missed the obvious point that half of Americans have no testicles at all...

Doesn't looks it's Bernie's year.

I’ve seen it said in Twitter that if he wins the “popular” vote in the primaries there’s no way they can deny him.

He knew the score beforehand.

And he is as free as everyone else is to try to woo both pledged AND superdelegates after the first round.

In reality, I would think if he is close to a majority of pledged delegates, he'll win it on the second go.

If he is at 30% or something, then I'd imagine they'll coalesce around one of the more moderate candidates.

What does "win the popular vote" mean?

A majority? Or just the most.

Unless its the former or close to it, forget it.

Delegate count:
Buttigieg 22
Sanders 21
Warren 8
Klobuchar 7
Biden 6
Bloomberg 0

Betting odds for 2020 winner:

Trump 8/13
Sanders 4/1
Bloomberg 9/1
Biden 20/1

Bloomberg took a hiding last night. He was like a duck out of water. Warren obliterated him. Will be interesting to see how that affects the polling numbers over the next few days, and if his high burn rate can take the bad look off it. I just wish he'd get out of the race and put his money into something useful like flipping the 4 senate seats we're going to need.
Odds update:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 7/2
Bloomberg: 8/1
Biden: 22/1

Bernie's odds moving in the right direction. Biden, not so much.

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 1/1
Bloomberg: 4/1
Buttigieg:8/1
Biden: 9/1

Update:
Delegate count:
Sanders 31
Buttigieg 22
Warren 8
Biden 8
Klobuchar 7
Bloomberg 0

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 3/1
Bloomberg: 10/1
Biden: 25/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 5/6
Bloomberg: 4/1
Buttigieg:11/1
Biden: 11/1

Interesting that Chrome still thinks "Buttigieg" is a typo.

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 29/10
Bloomberg: 10/1
Biden: 28/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 4/5
Bloomberg: 4/1
Biden: 10/1
Buttigieg:12/1

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 3/1
Bloomberg: 12/1
Biden: 12/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 10/11
Biden: 4/1
Bloomberg: 11/2
Buttigieg:20/1

Bloomberg and Buttigeig getting it tight.

Bernie's odds are slipping slightly in the general election, but he's still the favourite to get the nomination.

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 10/3
Biden: 9/1
Bloomberg: 12/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 10/11
Biden: 13/4
Bloomberg: 6/1
Buttigieg:20/1

This stock market crash might throw a spanner in the works. It was this kind of October surprise that worked in Obama's favor in 2008 when "the fundamentals of our economy [were] strong" until they weren't. Trump might cruise to reelection if the economy stays strong, but the coronavirus could change all that.

Get in there Bernie!

According to the stable genius, the 15% drop in the stock market is because of the Democrats and the media.

Yes. Did you hear about how he blamed Monday and Tuesday's losses on the Democratic debate that happened on Tuesday night? That's no joke.

Will the Dems get the blame for the funding cuts to the CDC, their pandemic planning and their testing labs if they're found wanting in the response to this outbreak?

Perhaps Mike Pence can pray that it won't come to that.

Apparently Rush Limbaugh has been telling his listeners "its just the common cold folks!" and that's its all a conspiracy to bring down Trump.

I guess he's a little confused by the fact that some causes of the common cold are also coronaviruses.

In other right wing science news, a man-eating tiger and a domestic kitten are both "just cats".

Rush is so wrong about the corona virus that even the lunatics at Free Republic criticized him for it
