    • The Colorado GOP is lying to itself, tbh.

      There are some Republicans who are a bit more realistic.  David Flaherty, who runs Magellan Strategies, surveyed unaffiliated voters.  There, he found (my bold):

      • The Democrat Party has a net positive image rating among unaffiliated voters. 45% Favorable, 31% Unfavorable
      • The Republican Party has a net negative image rating. 25% Favorable, 53% Unfavorable
      • Donald Trump had a negative impact on all Republican candidates in Colorado, with 34% of unaffiliated voters saying they were less likely to vote for a Republican candidate because of his influence.
      • President Trump’s job approval among unaffiliated voters was/is toxic.  31% Approve, 62% Disapprove (48% Strongly Disapprove)

    Biden Tells Elite Donors He Doesn't Want to ‘Demonize’ the Rich

    “Remember, I got in trouble with some of the people on my team, on the Democratic side, because I said, you know, what I’ve found is rich people are just as patriotic as poor people. Not a joke. I mean, we may not want to demonize anybody who’s made money,” Biden told about 100 well-dressed donors at the Carlyle Hotel on New York’s Upper East Side, where the hors d’oeuvres included lobster, chicken satay and crudites. 

    “Truth of the matter is, you all know, you all know in your gut what has to be done,” Biden said. “We can disagree in the margins. But the truth of the matter is, it’s all within our wheelhouse and nobody has to be punished. No one’s standard of living would change. Nothing would fundamentally change,” he said.

    No one’s standard of living would change. Nothing would fundamentally change,” he said.

    We will do more of them We will do them better. And, most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything.

    ‘We got things done’: Biden recalls ‘civility’ with segregationist senators

    The Democratic presidential candidate, who has led his competitors in early polls of the crowded nominating contest, briefly imitated the southern drawl of the Mississippi cotton planter, lawyer and lawmaker. “He never called me ‘boy,’ " Biden said. “He always called me ‘son.’ ”

    Biden’s campaign didn’t immediately return a request for comment about why it would be notable that the Dixiecrat — who thought black Americans belonged to an “inferior race” and warned that integration would cause “mongrelization” — didn’t call Biden “boy,” a racial epithet deployed against black men.

    Everytime I talk to a trumpette, I get those terms confused.
