The chairman of the Democratic Party in Iowa has quit over the caucus fuck up.

I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by
What a waste...

Bernie wouldn't want him killed, but the Bernie Bros would be in favor of tossing the guy into a gulag.

I usually only post the RealClear Politics average of the 50 national polls monthly but there's been a dramatic change recently so I'll at least provide some numbers.

In the past two weeks

Creepy Joe went from 29% to 19% and straight down, off the cliff sort of change.

Grandpa went from 19% to 23% and is now in the lead.

Pocohontas went from 16% to 12% and is now in 4th place.

Boomburg went from 5% to 14% proving once again that "money talks". I read that she isn't really trying to become president, but just saw this as an opportunity to "make statements" ... and push her agendae.

Butt-leg went from 6% to 10% and is now fourth, though she is actually ahead in delegates, so officially she is the front runner.

Clutch-bar is still down there in the under 5% muck area, she went from 3% to 4%, but did much better in both Iowa and NH.

So the landscape has definitely changed and what looked like a "shoe in" for Creepy Joe is now anything butt. Hard to say what will happen. This is perhaps the most "interesting" residential campaign we've had in decades.

But if I was bettin at this point, I bet on trumpf, because dee muc rats don't seem to have made up their minds on a strategic direction yet. There're like two parties running under one roof it feels like.

Trump might shoot himself in the foot (again) but the economy is a real powerhouse right now.

If the Dems nominate Bootyboy there will be many Dem interest groups that might just stay home.

You may just THINK that the powerhouse economy is a plus for Trump, but Nancy Pelosi would say that you are wrong.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is looking to make a sharp pivot ¨from the heated politics of impeachment and lash President Donald Trump in another key area: the economy.

The speaker is eager to hammer home the message that the economy isn’t actually as strong as Trump claims.
Such a move would be like the Polish General Staff in Sept. 1939 declaring "The German Panzer forces are weak. We need focus our counterattacks on their Panzers"

The consumer confidence index is at an 18 year high. :-)

We are having trouble finding skilled workers in Calif.

The problem with trying to convince people that the best economy in 50 years is actually bad is that PEOPLE WHO HAVE JOBS KNOW THEY HAVE JOBS!

So you can talk till you're blue in the face about how this economy doesn't work for bi Latino cross dressers or some other approval seeking micro group but each individual knows how the economy is working for them and all the propaganda in the world isn't going to change that.

This is proof of utter desperation. What's next, "The sky isn't really blue" strategy?

Here's a thought, Democrats:

How about you try something really radical like picking a quality candidate with some popular and workable policies that appeal to the average American instead radical Leftists? Just a thought...
