Seriously?

You've not heard of organ donation? Surrogacy? Bionic limbs?

Donation? That doesn't make it possible for me to sell one of my kidneys, it's illegal to sell organs. I should be able to sell them if I choose. Did you know that the liver grows back as long as you have at least 25% of it's mass? Why shouldn't I be allowed to make money off of my own organs?

Surrogacy for kidneys? Bionic limbs? Who donates a portion of their arm or legs?

Devastating news for the Bernie Sanders campaign as it fails to convince the entire state of Colorado to come his Denver rally. Should he call this thing now?
Only 10,000 showed at his rally.😏🔥🤘🏼🎊✌🏽

The new Franklin Pierce-Boston Herald poll finds Bernie with a commanding lead among New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. Overall, the survey finds Bernie with 28.5% of the vote — which puts him more than 7 points ahead of his next nearest rival, and more than 11 points ahead of the third-place candidate.

The poll results offer some more insights into the Bernie 2020 campaign’s strength in the first-in-the-nation primary state:

• BERNIE HAS A VERY HIGH FAVORABILITY RATING: 82% of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters have a favorable view of Bernie.

• BERNIE LEADS AMONG INDEPENDENT VOTERS: Bernie gets 32% of independent voters, while Biden gets 18% of independent voters. No other candidate is in double digits among these crucial swing voters.

• BERNIE LEADS AMONG WOMEN: Bernie is supported by 25% of female primary voters — the largest percentage of any candidate.

• BERNIE LEADS AMONG VOTERS 18-50: Bernie gets 34% of the vote among Democratic voters age 18-34, and 32% among Democratic voters age 35-50.

@edgarblythe,
Here is a link to all the polls from New Hampshire. Sanders is indeed leading in some of these polls. Unfortunately for him, he won 60% of the vote in the 2016 Democratic primary and he is only at a third of that level today. I think he needs to kill it in New Hampshire if he wants a real chance, so he better start hitting it hard.

@engineer,
The polls are wrong as often as they are correct. I prefer to wait for the votes to be counted. I fully expect voter suppression to alter the vote in both the primaries and general election anyway.

@edgarblythe,
Then why post "New Poll Shows Bernie Ahead In New Hampshire"? If you are going to look at polls, look at all the polls including the ones you don't like.

BERN NOTICE: 5 Things To Remember During Tonight's Debate
Here are the basic facts to keep in mind amid the inevitable garbage fire of vapid punditry, Trump talking points and dark money ads
Sep 12
Public post

If you only read the Beltway media headlines about tonight’s Democratic primary debate, you might not know Bernie Sanders actually exists. The Bernie Write Off™ has happened even as new polls in the last week show Bernie surging to the top of the field in three of the first primary/caucus states. And that boost has been fueled by months of Bernie’s policy rollouts on climate change, criminal justice, education, college affordability, credit card debt and workers’ rights — all initiatives that set him apart from the rest of the field.

The good news is that at least one publication — Slate — is seeing through spin, evaluating the indisputable data and declaring a basic truth: “Bernie Sanders Could Be The Next President.”

And with polls consistently showing that Bernie is a very strong general election candidate, the Daily Beast notes that Donald Trump is becoming increasingly nervous about the prospect of facing Bernie’s agenda. He should be nervous — especially considering recent data suggesting Bernie is the strongest Democratic candidate in the key swing counties that flipped the 2016 election to Trump.

As you watch tonight’s debate, here are five things to keep in mind:

1. Bernie isn’t just right on the issues today. He’s the only candidate who has always been right and has always taken on Republicans — even when it wasn’t politically convenient.
Now that the progressive agenda is ascendant, many candidates will tout their support for that agenda. But don’t forget: Bernie was for this agenda before it was ever considered acceptable — and he played a pivotal role in making the agenda popular in the first place, which proves he will back up his campaign promises with action in the White House. You can see it in the old clips of him during his earliest congressional campaigns:


For years, Bernie helped lead progressive Democrats’ fight against Wall Street deregulation, bank bailouts, welfare reform, mass incarceration, the Iraq War, job-killing trade deals and the bankruptcy bill — while other Democratic lawmakers broke with their party to help Republicans make those disastrous initiatives a reality.

For years, Bernie supported Medicare for All, the assault weapons ban, serious climate policy and stronger labor rights — while other Democrats stayed on the sidelines or helped Republicans try to block those initiatives.

2. Obama touts Medicare for All and calls Bernie “fearless” — after Bernie fought to pass and protect the ACA.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Biden will aim to manufacture a divide in the Democratic Party between “those who want to build on the Obama legacy and those who want to attack it.” It is an attempt to pretend lawmakers somehow can’t support the Affordable Care Act and push for Medicare for All.


Bernie has proven the opposite: The Intercept reports that as Bernie has pushed Medicare for All, he also played a pivotal role in shaping the ACA and Vox notes Bernie aggressively campaigned to defend the ACA. In opposing Medicare for All, Biden has now split with Obama — who recently touted Medicare for All. Meanwhile, Obama has said Bernie “has the virtue of saying exactly what he believes, and great authenticity, great passion, and is fearless.”

3. Americans don’t love private insurance corporations. Polls show Medicare for All is wildly popular. Polls also show majorities want Medicare for All to replace private insurance — and don’t just want tweaks to the current corporate-run system.
A new report from investigative journalism outlet Tarbell reviews how the health industry’s deceptive talking points have infected the presidential campaign discourse. The most pernicious of these is the supposition that Americans are opposed to Bernie’s Medicare for All plan. But as rates of uninsurance increase and Americans’ take-home pay is being swallowed up by health care bills, polls show the exact opposite.


A strong majority of voters support Medicare for All, according to recent polls from from HarrisX (70% support), RealClear Opinion Research (65% support), Morning Consult (55% support), YouGov (52% support) and ABC News/Washington Post (52% support).

Polls from RealClear Opinion Research, Morning Consult, YouGov, Business Insider and Tulchin Research show that majorities of all voters specifically want Medicare for All to replace private insurance.

These numbers are even more pronounced among Democratic voters: the new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows 65% of Democratic voters would be more likely to support a candidate who backs Medicare for All over efforts to tweak the current corporate-run health system. Similarly, the ABC/Washington Post poll found that 64% of all Democrats support Medicare for All even if it eliminates private insurance — and that includes 57% of moderate and conservative Democrats.

4. Bernie’s Medicare for All plan remains popular — even though front groups are spending millions of dollars on attack ads.
It is important to remember that strong polling numbers for Bernie’s Medicare for All initiative are persisting, even as the health care industry is pumping tens of millions of dollars into television ads.


Indeed, new data from Axios show that the health care industry has already spent $65 million on issue ads. Meanwhile, the insurance/pharma front group called “The Partnership for America’s Health Care” — which demonizes Bernie’s Medicare for All initiative — today announced that it will be airing ads during the debate - as part of their seven-figure ad campaign to buy the 2020 election.

5. There will be lots of populist talk about rejecting big money, but Bernie is the only leading candidate who has 100% done that — and will continue to do that for the entire election.
There has been a lot of talk about rejecting the influence of big money donors — but here is an indisputable fact: Bernie is the only candidate whose campaign is 100% funded by grassroots donors, and who has pledged to run his campaign that way not only in the primary, but also in the general election.

That is not only a principled anti-corruption position — it also is politically viable and potent because, as the New York Times recently showed, Bernie has by far the biggest donor base of any presidential candidate.
