ONE NIGHT IN TEXAS: Biden Braces for Attacks, Warren Takes Center Stage, Bernie’s Last Chance?

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.12.19

The top ten Democratic presidential candidates will finally share the same stage in Houston, Texas Thursday night; ending months of back-and-forth jabs between the top-three challengers.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren will have a chance to press each other for the first time in the 2020 primary process.

“Despite the miles traveled, the tens of millions of dollars raised and the ceaseless churn of policy papers, the Democratic primary has been remarkably static for months with Joe Biden leading in polls and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders vying to be the progressive alternative. That stability is under threat on Thursday,” reports the Associated Press.

“All of the top presidential candidates will share a debate stage, a setting that could make it harder to avoid skirmishes among the early front-runners. The other seven candidates, meanwhile, are under growing pressure to prove they’re still in the race to take on President Donald Trump next November,” adds the AP.

The debate marks the first time Sen. Warren is widely seen as a potential frontrunner; rising in recent polls that has her tied at 26% alongside Joe Biden.

“For me, this is just a better chance to talk about why I’m in this fight,” Warren told reporters, adding “the way I have all along. And that is, I’m someone who will fight for your family. I’m not here to fight for the rich and powerful.”

APOCALYPSE NOW: Bernie Says ‘Climate Change’ Bigger Threat to Americans than ‘ISIS or al Qaeda’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.12.19

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders told a crowd of supporters in Iowa Sunday the changing climate poses a bigger threat to Americans than international terrorism and jihadi ideology.

“Four years ago, I came here to Iowa and I was asked, ‘What’s the major national security issue we face? ISIS or al Qaeda?’ The answer that I gave in terms of national security is climate change,” Sanders told the crowd.

Sanders continued his calls for free college and universities across the USA this week; admitting the proposal may “cost a little bit of money” but ultimately asking, “So what?”

“One of the things that we’ve got to just keep doing is thinking big and not small… There’s no reason why we don’t make these colleges and universities tuition-free. Costs a little bit of money, but so what?” Sanders told a crowd of supporters.

Sanders published a list of “rights” all Americans are entitled to “regardless of income” over the weekend; demanding “decent jobs,” free healthcare, and affordable housing for everyone living in the United States.

“Every American, regardless of income, is entitled to:

The right to a decent job that pays a living wage.
The right to quality health care.
The right to a complete education.
The right to affordable housing.
The right to a clean environment.
The right to a secure retirement,” posted Sanders on social media.

Recent polling from the key primary state of New Hampshire may spell big trouble for Joe Biden, with Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren making major gains months before voters head to the polls.

According to the latest survey from Suffolk University-Boston Globe, Biden leads the Democratic field with 21%, followed by Sanders at 17% and Warren at 14%.

That’s a 5% bump for both candidates since the second round of presidential debates.

BAD NEWS FOR BETO: Beto O’Rourke Polling at 0.00% in Latest New Hampshire Poll

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.16.19

Former Democratic superstar Beto O’Rourke’s poll numbers plunged in recent weeks; with new data showing the Texan hovering at 0.00% in New Hampshire just months before primary voters cast their ballots.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden has a narrow lead over the field of Democratic contenders in New Hampshire, but Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have surged into contention for the top spot in the first-in-the-nation primary state, according to a new poll released Monday,” reports The Hill.

“Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) fell to zero percent support in the latest poll after coming in at 6 percent in April,” adds the website. “The Saint Anselm College survey of 352 likely Democratic primary voters was conducted between July 10 and July 12.”

The survey comes in the wake of O’Rourke’s controversial comments on the campaign trail; telling immigrants that the US was founded on “slavery” and “white supremacy.”

“I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” he said, according to the Tennessean. “And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy.”

O’Rourke spoke with supporters in Mexico last weekend; meeting with rejected asylum-seekers hoping to enter the United States.

“According to a pool report put out by the O’Rourke campaign, the candidate spoke to a group of asylum seekers in Spanish for about 15 minutes at a restaurant in Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from O’Rourke’s hometown of El Paso. The candidate then traveled to a shelter for migrants run by the Catholic Church, where he met around a table with migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala who told of being denied entry into the U.S. and returned to the Mexican border city while their asylum claims were being processed,” reports Fox News.

“Sunday’s visit represented a bid by O’Rourke to re-establish his credentials on the immigration issue after clashing with fellow Texan Julian Castro during Wednesday’s first presidential primary debate in Miami. Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary and mayor of San Antonio, chided the ex-congressman for not being willing to fully decriminalize illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border,” adds Fox.
