Look who found a new Koch to suck.
Scott Walker says he will chair Trump's Wisconsin re-election campaign
Quote:
I'm going to help chair [Trump's] and Vice President Pence's re-election campaign here in Wisconsin," Walker said. "I want to be a part of making sure that we keep this president, this administration intact."

This is confusing. Why didn't they make the appeal to the left actually go left on the radar graph? They should've swapped "the left" with hispanics & asians, though I question the monolithic nature of that grouping as well as "the left" and "millennials" being post-racial.

That said, these seem accurate to the categories that I'm in, other than Corey Booker's alleged appeal to millennials.

Was just about to post that and this tweet, which is part of a larger thread full of things I didn’t even know about. A couple of them dont seem that bad but she’s weird as hell.




Whole bunch of likely runs leaked out today and yesterday.

Brown
Gabbard
Gillibrand
Harris
Julián Castro

That’s added to Ojeda, Delaney, Warren and apparently Jay Inslee declared a week ago and I had no idea.

That leaves Sanders, Booker, O’Rourke, and Biden.

Not sure what kind of pull Castro will have, but it sounds good to me so far:

He’s excellent. Very smart, charismatic, progressive. He and Beto may cannibalize primary votes from each other tho.

Good piece by Bruni in the Times about how the media was culpable in the 2016 election and can do better this time around.

Quote:
Thomas Patterson of Harvard’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy has been analyzing that coverage since Trump declared his candidacy for the presidency in 2015. Patterson found that for much of that year, the number of stories about Trump in the country’s most influential newspapers and on its principal newscasts significantly exceeded what his support in polls at the time justified.

And those stories were predominantly positive. “The volume and tone of the coverage helped propel Trump to the top of Republican polls,” Patterson wrote in one of his reports about the election. In stark contrast, stories about Hillary Clinton in 2015 were mostly negative.

Through the first half of 2016, as Trump racked up victories in the Republican primaries, he commanded much more coverage than any other candidate from either party, and it was evenly balanced between positive and negative appraisals — unlike the coverage of Clinton, which remained mostly negative.

Only during their general-election face-off in the latter half of 2016 did Trump and Clinton confront equivalent tides of naysaying. “On topics relating to the candidates’ fitness for office, Clinton and Trump’s coverage was virtually identical in terms of its negative tone,” Patterson wrote.

Regarding their fitness for office, they were treated identically? In retrospect, that’s madness. It should have been in real time, too.

The bigger the crowd, the better for Bernie. He's the only purity politics candidate and all of these clones of each other are going to split votes.

If the establishment wing wants a candidate other than Bernie, they better lean on some of these redundant folks to back out early before he builds a ton of momentum.

Unpledged Delegates tho. This was problematic last time and can be problematic again this time. Even with reform they are gonna be a problem for Sanders in getting the nomination if he runs.
