Greg Dworkin presents a potpourri of politics and polling for your perusal:
Not so good news for Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee, who now move to the kid's table. Lindsey Graham and George Pataki are not invited at all. Jeb Bush, who is still running for president, probably wishes his dad and brother would quit talking about old times. Although fun to watch, the Republican debates move few people outside of Republicans. Insiders are pretty certain Ben Carson can not win, but do think that Marco Rubio might.
All politics used to be local, but lately all politics are turning national. This change is still not enough to help David Vitter, with prominent Republicans endorsing the Democratic competition, and with even Gumbo PAC running ads against him.
Being an Oath Keeper is keeping a lawyer from keeping his attorney oath.
Louisiana police say they were exchanging gunfire with a suspect (they weren't) when the suspect was backing his car towards them (he wasn't) and then multiple police bullets killed a 6 year old boy (they did).
Armando gives his personal South Florida, Miami-Dade county, Cuban perspective on the various lies and re-lying of Marco Rubio.
