In a perfect world, all those Democrats running for President would be currently running through the cornfields of Iowa and grabbing every hand, kissing every baby and milking every cow for support next Monday. Yet in the nonperfect political world we live in, the four Democrats who also happen to be United States Senators are stuck in Washington D.C. living their non best political life due to impeachment.
You fine folks can thank Nancy Pelosi for that.
With the Iowa caucuses, just a mere six days away time is precious and four United States Senators are not chilling on the campaign fields and barns but away from the local action for the national embarrassment. Senators Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar and Bennet are all stuck out of the fray while Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg run around the state like it is their own personal playground.
According to website 538 it is getting competitive with time running out.
We’re now less than a week away from the Iowa caucuses, and the contest there can best be described as a four-way race. As of Tuesday morning, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren were all clustered within about 8 percentage points of each other in our average of the state’s polls, with Sanders and Biden at 22 percent, Buttigieg at 17 percent and Warren at 14 percent.
Given just how close things are in Iowa, our forecast doesn’t give anyone more than a 36 percent chance of winning the caucuses next week. This got us thinking: How unusual is it for the field to have this many candidates within a few points of each other? Answer: It’s pretty unusual.
Warren can not take advantage of her BIG endorsement from the Des Moines Register while sitting admiring Jay Sekulow break down Adam Schiff’s crap case. Bernie Sanders has to rely on his “bros” to get the word out for him as he is stuck wondering who let Alan Dershowitz into the chamber. Sen. Klobuchar and Bennet aren’t going to benefit from all those free buffet meal tickets that expire on Monday being they are going to be stuck wondering why they even decided to do this.
All these Democrats have Nancy Pelosi to blame and on the flip side, Joe Biden should send his fellow pro-abortion catholic friend a box of chocolates. Pelosi delaying sending the articles over to the Senate for a month put them in the place and they are now in and screwed sitting out of the first in the nation election. They might also miss New Hamshire.
I would believe Sanders particularly is steamed being he was screwed last time he ran by the DNC and Clinton and now he is getting it again because of Pelosi playing dodge-em with Mitch McConnell. That Biden and Sanders are this close gives Joe plenty of time to rest and cut down the chance of screwing up. Iowa caucuses goers are notorious for changing their minds at the last moment and without Sanders being there to present his case this gives Joe a clear shot of taking the state.
So enjoy the next 6 days of watching 4 Democrats squirm in their seats while events unfold in Iowa and if you listen close enough you might hear quiet sobbing from all those peeps who are missing the action because of Madame Speaker.
