Tulsi Gabbard (D - HI) now officially runs for president


Gabbard took aim at America's foreign policy establishment in her campaign announcement Saturday, blaming politicians in "ivory towers" for U.S. involvement in costly armed conflicts abroad.

She faces an uphill battle against candidates with established support from other members of Congress, some of whom have already expressed skepticism towards Gabbard's presidential ambitions.

Elections ahead in #Nigeria


He accused Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Party, APC, of bringing in machineries from Niger Republic to manipulate the election.

“Atiku will rescue Nigerian from poverty, hunger and mass killings. The governor, David Umahi is the best governor and I know that you are going to vote for him again.

“We ask INEC to disqualify Buhari for bringing in machineries to influence the election. INEC better be warned that you cannot rig this election. We have already won this election. Atiku believes in the youths and women, that is why they are always trouping out massively to welcome him anywhere we have gone”, Secondus said.

Underdog likely to win in El Salvador's elections appointed on Sunday


The ruling Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN), needs a massive upset if the leftist party is to cling to power. Its traditional rival, the conservative Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA), also lags well behind Bukele, who belongs to a smaller right-wing party called the Great Alliance for National Unity (GANA).

To win outright, he must secure more than 50 percent of the vote or face a run-off against his closest rival on March 10. About 5.3 million Salvadorans are registered to vote.

Kamala Harris runs for president in #Election2020


The South Carolina electorate seems ready-made for Harris as, historically, African-American voters cast more than half of all votes in Democratic presidential primaries in the state. Then-Sen. Barack Obama scored a crushing victory over Hillary Clinton in South Carolina in 2008, a win that gave his candidacy a jolt of momentum heading into a series of caucuses in February 2008 that gave him a delegate lead he never relinquished.

Judge strikes Wisconsin #GOP's lame-duck session bills


The push from Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled legislature was designed to curb incoming Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’s power in office and potentially make it harder for Democrats to get elected in the future.

Among those changes included cuts to early voting times, limiting them to two weeks across the state, as well as requiring a two-year expiration date on student IDs being used for voter identification at the polls. The changes would hit hardest in Wisconsin’s most liberal cities like Milwaukee and Madison, which offer prolonged periods of early voting and have bigger student populations.

How #Trump's stubborn consistency could affect his 2020 election outcome


Even during the 2016 Republican primaries, a majority of voters opposed deporting all undocumented immigrants in all but two of the 20 states where exit polls asked their opinion. Yet the minority of voters that supported deportation backed Drumpf in such preponderant numbers that they provided a majority of his votes in all but two of the 20 states.

The same pattern was evident in the general election. In the exit poll, just 41 percent of voters supported Drumpf’s border wall, while a solid majority of 54 percent opposed it. Yet Drumpf won a much higher share of the wall’s supporters (85 percent) than Hillary Clinton did of the wall’s opponents (76 percent). Roughly one-fourth of the wall’s opponents either voted for Drumpf (16 percent) or drifted away to a third-party candidate (8 percent).

In the exit poll, 18 percent of the college-educated whites who oppose... show more
 

Beto O'Rourke speaking with from near the border in unusual situations


Introducing viewers to Diana, his dental hygienist, O’Rourke asked her what she wanted people to know about the border, as President Donald Drumpf continues to press for funding for a border wall.
“It’s a beautiful community,” the woman said. “We all support each other. We love each other. And it’s not what everybody else thinks badly about us. It’s actually a wonderful place to live and grow up.”

Elizabeth Warren starts presidential campaign race in #Iowa


During a Saturday morning event in Sioux City, audience members were given the chance to ask the Massachusetts senator questions. The first? A query about her decision to take a DNA test and release the results on her Native American ancestry.

After the question from the audience member, Warren on Saturday told Iowan voters that the test wasn't meant to show any claim to a tribe and said she understood and respected the difference between ancestry and tribal citizenship. She said after the attacks she merely just wanted to "put it all out there."

Elizabeth Warren candidates for presidency in 2020


Others, including some of Warren’s fellow senators, are also getting ready to make announcements of their own, and some are expected within days, according to the Washington Post.

I hope that the others are going to announce their candidacy soon as well. The sooner you start to gather money and sound for your election, the better it is. They are going to face an important election, they will have to kick out the orange buffoon and tidy up the mess the toddler with a constant temper tantrum has created.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others, who work just as hard, slip through the cracks into disaster,” Warren, 69, says in the video. “And what I’ve found is terrifying: these aren’t cracks families are falling into, they’re traps. America’s middle class is under attack.”

#Democrats arm up for campaign rallies


All four are likely to spend considerable time and money in 2019 competing with one another to answer the strong yearning from Democrats for new leadership, and they don’t want to lose a step to a rival fresh face, such as Representative Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas Senate candidate who has been the focus of intense speculation in recent weeks as a potential presidential candidate.

But still, he's not the strongest potential candidate for the Democratic presidential candidate, just saying. He's the third strongest, behind Joe Biden and someone completely different.

And they might well scramble the early polling leads held by Mr. Biden and Mr. Sanders, who benefit from strong name recognition but would be in their late 70s by Election Day 2020, at a moment when some in the party are agitating for generational change.

We need younger candidates!

What do #Democrats want?


Landing at the top of the list of 11 options was “someone entirely new” – perhaps a prospect not on the political radar screen yet. Nearly six in 10 of those surveyed – 59 percent – said they would be “excited” about a candidate like that; only 11 percent said they’d prefer that a new face not run.

To say that you wanted someone entirely new, but were unable to drop a name of this someone, is like not saying anything without expressing exactly this. Just saying…

That said, close behind was Joe Biden, the opposite of someone entirely new. Biden, now 76, was a veteran senator from Delaware before he served two terms as President Barack Obama’s vice president. He’s weighing whether to make his third bid for the Democratic nomination; 53 percent said they would be excited about that, while 24 percent urged him not to run.

So, at least this was nothing new. But som... show more

#Israel heads towards electiosn on April 9., 2019


A 2019 electoral campaign was inevitable, in fact. Netanyahu’s four-year mandate runs out in November 2019, but Monday’s unforeseen move became inescapable when Netanyahu was unable to muster the necessary votes to pass a popular law levying heavier fines against orthodox Jewish seminary students who dodge Israel’s otherwise universal draft of 18-years-olds on religious grounds.

Hm...

#California prepares for general election in 2020


It’s fueled by perceptions both inside and outside the state that California’s brand of unapologetic progressivism has moved into the mainstream of the party after years of being dismissed nationally as a zany laboratory for far-left dreamers.

Doesn't sound like something to complain about, I must admit. I like California, although it was once governed by an Austrian whose most famous role was as a murderous cyborg with a southern Bavarian accent.

“For the first time in a major way, Latinos have a real opportunity to play a huge role in deciding early who the Democratic nominee will be,” de León said of the early maneuvering. “Midwest and East Coast candidates will be forced to brush up on their high school Spanish very quickly. West Coast and Southwestern candidates can have an advantage if they play it right — but it’s not automatic.”

#Senate about to read the report on Russian trolls colluding general election 2016


"The first objective of the Russians was to sow doubt, discord and discontent in this country, and they've succeeded to it fairly well -- capitalizing and exploiting the polarization and divisiveness in this country," Clapper said.
[...]
"They had messages for everybody in the campaign, whether it was Black Lives Matter, white supremacists, gun control advocates, Second Amendment advocates," he said. "The Russians are always looking for issues to exploit to their advantage."

Good to know that we finally have a report stating the same thing that every regular internet frequenter could have told you if he didn't jump upon the #Trump train already. But well, the senate relies on verified data, so that was merely a formula necessary to seal everything.

Joe #Biden most preferred #Democrat, Bernie #Sanders runner-up


Outgoing Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate race last month, is in third place, at 11 percent. Slightly behind him are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth #Warren at 8 percent, and California Sen. Kamala #Harris at 5 percent.

In the end, Beto O'Rourke might be a little bit too progressive, too idealist, without a major hinge of realism. This is where Bernie Sanders is a bit ahead, and Joe Biden is a man of experience, he has a long time of working as a politician. I don't know how much this applies to Mr. Sanders, he is a classical Socialist, if you want to call it like this.

Oblivious elections - part III: #Armenia


#Pashinyan’s party is expected to get a majority in the new legislature, allowing him to push ahead with his campaign to reshape the South Caucasus nation’s political landscape and spark an “economic revolution”.
Last week, Pashinyan – who is acting prime minister – promised “the best elections Armenia has ever seen”, without ballot-stuffing or voter intimidation.

At least there are examples of elections that don't end up in a massacre on the voters, such as it happens in Afghanistan, where the votes are still not counted to the end, including all the flaws of the election, the corruption that runs through it. In Armenia, this doesn't seem to have happened, although believing that no new crooks would fill the space is naive.

The #US elections are corrupted, no matter what you think or say


North Carolina law requires two witnesses to sign the envelopes of the absentee ballots. Usually, those witnesses are family members or friends. Investigators in North Carolina are looking into allegations that Dowless' group picked up unsealed ballots and either witnessed them and turned them in or threw them away.

So, therei s a possibility that those voting aides simply threw absentee ballots away? For God's sake, how dare they? Elections are flawed, we would better revolve the idea of a state to assure safety for its people, and general order. People are responsible enough to care for themselves alone, we don't need either one, neither a state, nor hierarchial companies that oppress you and force you into work. Thanks a lot for your efforts.

All the work for nothing


Election boards across the state have been using voting machines to recount ballots this week, with some of the larger counties working all day and through the night. The Senate and agricultural commissioner races are now headed to hand reviews of overvotes and undervotes, a more narrowly circumscribed but also potentially volatile pool of votes.

And the worst of it all is that you still have to hear those whiny snowflake asses of the right that say that the Democrats had corrupted the election by filing lawsuits to add votes that didn't exist, although any of them possibly has never volunteered in vote counting. But hey, badmouthing without evidences has gained their favoured president the White House, so what?
