    Didn't notice the page turner.

    Egad, 215 sample size?!

    The polling age distribution definitely would answer why Klobuchar did "well' in this poll.

    bigger poll:
    Senator Bernie Sanders has a commanding nineteen point in the Nevada caucus, with 35 percent of likely caucusgoers supporting him. He is followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Former Vice President Joe Biden who are all tightly clustered at 16, 15 and 14 percentage points, respectively.



    Data for Progress conducted a poll of 766 likely Nevada caucusgoers from 2/12/2020 through 2/15/2020. Likely caucusgoers were identified from the Nevada voter file and weighted to a likely electorate. Our margin of error is +/- 3.4 percent.

    “If you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95, we should say ‘go and enjoy, have a nice day, live a long life.’ There’s no cure and we can’t do anything. If you’re a young person, we should do something about it,” said Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Does it? 95 and chemo?!

    I disagree with "we can't do anything". They can, it is "make their last days comfortable". We can't "cure" them, but it doesn't stop there.

    I think it's possible he was trying to communicate an idea about quality of life but just did it terribly.

    Yep. Most physicians wouldn't wish on their worst enemy what they are required by law to do to the rest of us.

    Heh ... we can dramatically reduce health care costs by mandating palliative care for anyone over thirty.

    But then you stop and ponder, but if someone is okay with Trump, but supports Klobuchar over Trump... does that mean crossover back to the Democrat in the General Election votes?

    If 22% of a candidates's supporters approve of the current president, it's harder to get them to vote for his opponent. It's not game theory, it's ideology. Klobuchar appeals to people who approve of Trump because she is running on a conservative platform.
