The lazy way that ‘working class’ is thrown around to mythologize candidate backgrounds is a tell-tale sign of someone who wants to believe in someone as opposed to looking at the facts. Keep running around calling rich people Oligarchs, see how far that gets you messaging wise (it won’t get you far) and watch as half Read more

There is an alternative theory, even if it’s one you don’t want to hear: Large numbers of black people (right now) think that if Biden continues to falter, that Mike Bloomberg is the best chance to beat Trump. People are willing to hold their nose and vote for a known racist in order to get a white nationalist out of Read more

Bloomberg is terrible for lots of reasons. Some of which are generally known, some are not. But here’s the question: Why are black voters moving (thus far) from Biden to Bloomberg and skipping over Bernie Sanders? Railing against me for writing about the numbers that exist, or implying that black people are stupid may Read more

Well, first I was never a Democratic Pollster. Second I make it pretty consistently clear on T.V. that I’m not a Democrat. Second, Sanders inability to routinely earn more than about 20% of the black vote is a problem.

Did you not notice that we actually LIKE Cheryl? It’s Taylor who’s a problem

There is not one reputable poll in America where Bernie Sanders leads with black voters 18-49. That’s not even a typical age break down.

Deval Patrick is actually in the race, and we’ve included ‘possible’ candidates before, like Stacey Abrams. Last week we added Bloomberg

Honestly. Like, what good to you accomplish being unnecessarily rude and abrasive online? I don’t know you, have no ill will towards you, but you were clearly wrong, you ignored the criteria in order to make some attempt at a ‘dunk’ and then you were wrong again, because - stay with me here - you didn’t pay attention Read more

Will be writing about it next week. I will say, that it came as surprise to a large number of staff. Beto had events scheduled already and just dropped new policy

I was pushing for a Hunger Games type of screen with names disappearing but graphics didn’t have the time to put it together LOL !

So are you too stupid to read or are you intentionally obtuse? The FLEX criteria clearly states that external polling is only one criteria for the rankings. Do I show up at your house, ignore the “Please take of your shoes” sign at the door then walk in the house and complain about the muddy carpet?

Either you don’t know how to read or choose to not read. We clearly explain every. single. week. that Polling is only one factor in making the weekly rankings. Weekly. As in we look at each week in the campaign as a discrete entity. The alternative of just being a slave to each candidate’s history and polling every Read more

And who exactly are these “Real” black people that you supposedly know ?

LOL naw Zerlina is pretty even keel and wouldn’t lock me up in a basement no matter what my opinions are. The rankings are a group effort, I just compile the opinions and write it all down, so it’s full of competing ideas every week.

We’re hoping it’s not a Madden Curse Power Ranking. Julian Castro and Cory Booker were both number #1 within the last month or so, and somehow they managed to stay in the race even though I think they probably have less money than Beto.
