Quinnipiac University Poll: "Florida Republicans have won the last five major statewide elections, all by very close margins, but Sunshine State Democrats see these very early numbers as a sign that their losing streak might be coming to an end," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "President Donald Trump trails both former Vice President Joseph Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders in general election matchups and basically ties other leading Democratic challengers," Brown added. "While most Florida voters are feeling better financially, President Trump remains underwater with a 44 percent job approval rating and a 51 percent disapproval rating."

"The former vice president leads Trump among Florida voters by 50 percent to 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll published Tuesday ahead of the president's campaign kickoff rally at Orlando's Amway Center.

Trump also trails the Vermont senator by a 6-point margin, 48 percent to 42 percent, while head-to-head match-ups pitting the president against other top-polling Democratic rivals are "too close to call,"

Has Bernie re-joined to the Democratic party yet? That's a key part of getting the nomination.

Or is he running as an Independent this time? He's a shoo-in for that.

This kind of thing confuses me as to where he stands when I bother to look:

His party status became ambiguous once again in March 2019 when he signed a formal "loyalty pledge" to the Democratic Party stating that he is a member of the party and will serve as a Democrat if elected president. He signed the pledge the day after he signed paperwork to run as an independent for reelection to the Senate in 2024.

I'm not sure what to make of that. He'll be a Democrat if he wins but if not he's outta there?

But Biden record of voting On the War on Terror, Biden voted in favor of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 and the Patriot Act of 2001.

also that he was a champion of mostly GOP-supported legislation in 2005 whose aim was to make it more difficult for hard-pressed families to discharge their credit card debt in bankruptcy.

all this doesn't confuse you?

Canada, or at least Quebec, is making progress on one problem.

"New Quebec law stresses migrants' skills, thousands must reapply.

The Quebec provincial legislature on Sunday approved a controversial immigration bill that will replace a first-come, first-served standard for accepting migrants with one tied to an applicants' skills.

The law is similar to a proposed plan from US President Donald Trump that would shift his country's visa system from family-based immigration towards bringing in more skilled workers.

The law will attempt to more closely match the skills offered by would-be immigrants with the needs of the labor market in Quebec, Canada's second most-populous province.

Under the new law, some 18,000 applications now on file will be shredded, affecting as many as 50,000 people, many of whom already live in the province."

But voted like a repub on serious issues such as the crime bill that locked up more African Americans than Bush Reagan and Nixon combined, voted to make bankruptcy harder for the average American to vote on a law that was favored by the Banks and the Repub party but mostly voted against by the Dem party he also voted for Bush for the Iraq war.

I am sorry your too much of simpleton to understand the issues it seems you only understand labels, what a shame.

But don't worry when Bernie Sanders wins the Presidency he will win as a Democrat and be a Democrat President.

""New Quebec law stresses migrants' skills, thousands must reapply."

I have known and worked for French Canadians here in S. Florida. They are probably the most racist group of people in N. America. The preservation of their French culture and language makes them even consider secession from Canada. Laws like that are designed to keep out "undesirables." Same thing Trump wants to do here. I, for one, know that my ancestors were probably considered "undesirables" when they landed on our shore from Ireland. I can honestly say that the several generations of my family since then have contributed to our society in many ways, have fought for our country and none, to my knowledge, has ever been a criminal nor spent time in prison. There is no good reason for me to think that those who desperately feel the need to come here to escape gangs, etc. are any different than my family.

That isn't an exoneration. As much as I appreciate Kerry providing testimony regarding his experience in Viet Nam he is pro-war. Clinton is pro-war. Biden, guess what - he also has contractors and lobbyists money because he is pro-war.

I really, really, really despise the comparison. Bernie has never been pro-war.

The lies told by BushCo were obvious, the Democrats were following the leader, not making critical decisions based on anything less than judging the invasions popularity.

Anyone who claims that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11 never had any intention on not voting for the illegal invasion of the nation that did not attack us. Remember the neoconservative list of nations? Venezuela and other petro-economies were their targets.

Around the turn of this century, an arraignment was being made for all air traffic controllers in the world to speak English.

All nations agreed, including France...

The people of Quebec, however, forced Canada to deny the agreement.

In other words France wasn't French enough for Quebec.

By intel you mean the lies and propaganda the Bush admin created.

Problem with democrats, especially the ones that voted to go into Iraq, is they are always so afraid of being labeled by their political enemies and their propaganda outlets. In this case they would have been labeled "anti-American". So being the political cowards they are they voted to invade Iraq even though most knew it was the wrong thing to do.

The question you should be asking is - has the democratic party rediscovered its principles of fighting for the working class against the plutocrats. That's when bernie will rejoin.

Interesting. If that's true, then how did they still come to any conclusion that involved Iraq whatsoever? From what everyone was told all of the skyjackers were Saudi, not Iraqi and that their leader Osama was maybe someplace in Afghanistan.

So what made the Iraq invasion necessary? We now know that WMD's were a blatant lie, the "evidence" of mobile chemical weapons manufacturing improperly labeled and "General" Powell's yellowcake was a total lie.

Where did Iraq fit into this scenario? Other than the administration prior when Dick Cheney used millions of taxpayer dollars to project the savings in contracting out an invasion if Iraq. Pure, unrefined happenstance, I know.

Congresscritters didn't have any impetus to read about a war because they were relaxing in the aftermath of the twin towers? Who didn't read what? Where do you get your information? Seriously, you believe what any corporate politician tells you as fact?
