It’s almost Super Tuesday, the Amok Time for poll-watchers, and Greg Dworkin will not disappoint those wanting polling and analysis today. But first there is Nevada, which isn’t a primary, it’s caucuses, but not as confusing as Colorado.
Bernie Sanders is swimming against the tide, with a tsunami coming. Greg sends his condolences in advance. Will single women be the key to Democratic success?
Donald Trump is doing well. Is this as yuge as he can get? Or is his ceiling the classy, vaulted kind? For instance, how is he getting so many of Cruz’ evangelicals? Is it the authoritarianism, stupid? Or are there many, many reasons why Trump just can’t? Anyway, the Republican race is down to the final three, and maybe another guy, but that’s all. If the race comes down to Rubio vs. Trump, GOP voters can tell us what they think it means to be American. Ted Cruz finally found out who was lying in his campaign.
