gotcha, agreed ;)

One of the traits I like about Kamala, she laughs easily, at herself too.

For me, Bernie isn't nearly as bad as Trump.

He's a socialist dinosaur. I don't think that's a useful set of ideas. But he wouldn't get much done. To the extent he would get anything done it would be to move things towards the centre, which is where they need to go - away from the far right where they are now.

I don't think he would sell out the US to dictators. I don't think he would lie 8,000 lies. I don't think we would need to investigate his finances. I wouldn't worry about the rule of law in the US.

A door stop, a piece of coal or a goat would be better than Trump. Mussolini would be about the same.

I used Bernie as my example of a bad candidate, who even as bad as he is, he's better than this guy. If I talked to 100 people in a park on any given day, all 100 would be better than Trump.

To me, Bernie is the flip side of Trump. Both are bad.
He would be terrible.

After Trump we really need a smart, savvy, strong, POTUS, able to put a solid team together & garner respect!

I don't really know enough about any of them yet.

From what I have heard from Warren she's brave and smart. But I think she may not come across in a way that will appeal broadly.

Any of them are better than Trump, so I would support any choice they put forward this time. Even Bernie is better than Trump.

I like her a lot more than Elizabeth Warren.
I need to hear more about her priorities & her methods.

I'm not a fan of Warren, Gillibrand, or Corey Booker, for POTUS.
Nor Joe Biden, though I'm very fond of him, he's had his chances (3) running.

Plenty of time & candidates to enter the race.
Need to kick the tires ;)

I have a feeling that she will be a very strong candidate.

Since I believe that electorates usually plump for opposites, I think this race will be won by a woman. She will likely chase the Obama coalition and that coalition will swamp Trump.

Hope she can deliver the senate and house as well. Repeal everything Trump on Day 1.

Republicans caste all Dem women as polarising. It's what they do.

I'm with your mum. Pelosi may be my favourite Democrat. Not your glib, charismatic type. But experienced, thorough and excellent.

My hope is that Kamala Harris is cut from the same cloth.

Nancy is more popular in Georgia than Trump!
that's gotta make him sick ;)

More voters in Georgia, a GOP-leaning state, view President Trump unfavorably than Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), according to a a new poll released Friday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The poll found that 55.6 percent of respondents view Trump unfavorably, compared to 37.4 percent who view him favorably.

In comparison, 47.6 percent of those surveyed held an unfavorable view of Pelosi, compared to 38.7 percent who held a favorable view of the Speaker.

Trump’s Slippage in Support is Real

The president is losing support—not just among independents, but from his evangelical and white-male base, too.
by WILLIAM KRISTOL JANUARY 20, 2019 6:11 AM

The slippage is the worst kind—the slow erosion of support from key blocs: swing voters (independents and suburbanites) and those who put Trump over the top (blue collar white men and Republicans over 60).

It’s been registering in a cross section of polling data, not just one poll. Trump’s job approval rating is down to 31 percent among independents in Gallup. His approval ratings in Rasmussen are down from the 48-49 percent range of late last year to the 43-44 percent level of the past week or so. The Marist data for PBS shows a drop of 10 percent in job approval among Republicans and a decline of 11 percent among white evangelicals and 17% among suburban men.

I agree. No one should be able to take government workers' lives hostage like this.

So many new laws and constitutional amendments needed now we know what an autocrat will do.

Another thing that's needed is non-partisan oversight in the event of one party government as the existing system has failed horribly.

This is where the House of Lords, the Privy Council and the Monarch operate in the UK system.
