Sanders. Hillary took the State handily.
This conversation about our neighbours political affairs is beginning to feel natural. Likeitsour business too.
CNN presents and repeats and repeats and repeats ....such a cornucopia , it's hard not to have a sense of events. Maybe as much as many Americans.
Fox News scheduled another GOP debate for today. The front runner declares he will not attend.
Hillary should also give her voice a break from further debates. It is just about gone.
Debates allowed the Senator to repeat his mantra over and over and pummel Hillary with innuendo while being the perfect gentleman and professing great respect. But his voice too is failing and he is noticeably slowing down.
The rigeur of the campaign would be a challenge for a man half his age.
It's too much already and punishing to watch.
Today a table of multi-million dollar figures spent by all parties on campaign advertising was published.
All over the land , facilities are being rented , people hired, signs and leaflets printed, bus fleets rented to transport followers to rallies. Such an infusion into the economy must be making a difference.
Bernie argues his money is different because it comes from small donations of $27. I wonder if he has to give it to the government if he doesn't use all of it.
Panels of political analysts and contributors never heard of before have become familiar faces and household names.
Perched on high stools, imparting selective commentary, on a process they also serve who only sit and watch and by the way, derive a comfortable living and sometimes fame and special awards.
Chris Christy, Governor of New Jersey, travels with Trump, waiting for an occasional pat between the ears.
There's a slight ebb at the moment.The pundits have turned their attention to polls that show
Trump is disliked and democratic voters like Senator Sanders better. That comedy line from the Smothers Brothers routine comes to mind. "Mom always liked you best"
It seems odd to suggest despite winning millions of votes more than the closest rival means the person who knows lots of dirty tricks and is neither trusted nor liked.
But the media only talk to each other,it's not clear that they listen and if a sufficient number repeat an unsubstantiated statement multiple times each day without challenge , it must be true. ...right.
I don't think so.
The media can make or break a candidate. In every debate, Hillary was the only candidate asked to explain why people don't like her.
It was the same eight years ago.
Her first answer to the question was the right one.
"That hurts my feelings"
Then they commented she "showed her humanity"
