TEXAS BERNING! Bernie Sanders Jumps to First Place in Latest Primary Polls from Texas

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.17.20

Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders took the top spot in recent polling coming out of Texas this week; raising alarm bells among establishment Democrats the self-described ‘socialist’ can clinch the nomination.

“Sanders had the support of 24% of the self-identified Democratic primary voters in the poll, up from 12% in October. Sanders passed both former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the two leaders in the October 2019 UT/TT Poll. Early voting in the Texas primaries starts on Tuesday; election day — Super Tuesday — is March 3,” reports the Texas Tribune.

“The field of candidates has changed since the earlier survey. Beto O’Rourke, who was third in October, has dropped out of the race. And Michael Bloomberg, who entered the contest late, landed fourth in the newest poll, ahead of Pete Buttigieg and U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the second- and third-place finishers in this week’s New Hampshire primary. Warren finished fourth in that contest, with Biden fifth,” adds the website.

“Most of the movement has been Sanders and Bloomberg, with Biden [holding] still,” said Joshua Blank, research director for the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “To be unable to increase his vote share is pretty telling for Biden.”

"SNL" tears apart Iowa caucus at Democratic debate in New Hampshire

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.09.20

The cast of SNL parodied the Democratic candidates in their opening skit over the weekend. While the show typically goes easy on Democrats, they went for the jugular this time. As the old saying goes, “there is a grain of truth in every joke.” The truths that this skit points out highlight many of the major weaknesses in the Democratic field of candidates.

The parody kicked off with an announcer stating, “Let’s meet our future MSNBC contributors.” Jason Sudeikis, playing the role of Biden, said, “Joe Biden is going to do what Joe Biden does the best, creep up from behind. Just when you think your lead is safe, my numbers are going to come up and surprise you with a nice, sweet kiss on the neck.”

The live audience erupted when the Saturday Night Live cast members pointed out that Bernie Sanders has spent over one million dollars flying on private jets. Larry David, portraying Sanders, said he likes to fly privately to avoid annoying the flying public with his loud chewing and frequent trips to the bathroom.

BERNIE ON ‘FREE’ PROGRAMS: ‘It Costs a Little Bit of Money, But So What?’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.12.19

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie 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.

“Sen. Kamala Harris is in fourth place at 8 percent support, followed by South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 3 percent. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is at 1 percent support and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke registered zero percent support,” reports The Hill.

The survey comes days after another national showed Biden maintaining a healthy lead over his Democratic challengers.
