Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Trump by 13 points nationally, according to the latest Quinnipiac University survey. In a national head-to-head matchup, the poll found Biden taking 53 percent against 40 percent for Trump, with the poll's assistant director describing it as a "landslide" margin.

Five other Democratic contenders also lead the president: Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hold healthy leads over Trump, with Sanders up by 9 points, Harris ahead by 8 and Warren leading by 7. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) lead Trump by 5 points, with each posting a 47 to 42 split.

“It’s a long 17 months to Election Day, but Joe Biden is ahead by landslide proportions,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

whoda thunk it?
Looks like it's all over for the Trumpster.

What do polls even matter? Vote for who you want to win.

That hasn't happened since Reagan. Now it's forced to vote against who I most want to lose. Kinda like a choice between a no anesthesia colonoscopy and being flogged.

My guess is this is what members mean when they post "butt-hurt"

If you recall the dynamic of that election Iran was holding our folks hostage and the people had lost faith that Jimmy was strong enough to resolve the situation. Reagan talked tough about Iran right up until the election and that, as much as anything else, got him elected. Iran released the hostages right before Reagan took office

I remember something about bush the first over in France fixing the problem for his team. Too many years ago to remember much. I hate most all the mass murdering presidents equal.

They were released right after Reagan was inaugurated. Within minutes.
That was the deal the Repukes made with Iran, Iran got what they wanted later on...
1980 Carter vs. Reagan[edit]
Main article: October Surprise conspiracy theory
In the 1980 presidential election, Republican challenger Ronald Reagan feared that a last-minute deal to release American hostages held in Iran might earn incumbent Jimmy Carterenough votes to win re-election.[3][4] As it happened, in the days prior to the election, press coverage was consumed with the Iranian government's decision—and Carter's simultaneous announcement—that the hostages would not be released until after the election.[4]

It was first written about in a Jack Anderson article in The Washington Post in the fall of 1980, in which he alleged that the Carter administration was preparing a major military operation in Iran for rescuing U.S. hostages in order to help him get reelected. Subsequent allegations surfaced against Reagan alleging that his team had impeded the hostage release to negate the potential boost to the Carter campaign.[5]

After the release of the hostages on January 20, 1981, minutes after Reagan's inauguration, some charged that the Reagan campaign had made a secret deal with the Iranian government whereby the Iranians would hold the hostages until after Reagan was elected and inaugurated.[4]

Gary Sick, member of the National Security council under Presidents Ford and Carter (before being relieved of his duties weeks into Reagan's term)[6] made the accusation in a New York Times editorial[7] in the run-up to the 1992 election. The initial bipartisan response from Congress was skeptical: House Democrats refused to authorize an inquiry, and Senate Republicans denied a $600,000 appropriation for a probe.

Eight former hostages also sent an open letter demanding an inquiry in 1991.[7] In subsequent Congressional testimony, Sick said that the popular media had distorted and misrepresented the accusers, reducing them to "gross generalizations" and "generic conspiracy theorists". Sick penned a book on the subject and sold the movie rights to it for a reported $300,000.[8] His sources and thesis were contested by a number of commentators on both sides of the aisle.[9][10]

Abolhassan Banisadr, the former President of Iran, has also stated "that the Reagan campaign struck a deal with Tehran to delay the release of the hostages in 1980", asserting that "by the month before the American Presidential election in November 1980, many in Iran's ruling circles were openly discussing the fact that a deal had been made between the Reagan campaign team and some Iranian religious leaders in which the hostages' release would be delayed until after the election so as to prevent President Carter's re-election."[11]He repeated the charge in My Turn to Speak: Iran, the Revolution & Secret Deals with the U.S.[12]

Two separate congressional investigations looked into the charges, both concluding that there was no plan to seek to delay the hostages' release.[4]

Iran later gets a crap load of military supplies...and gets out of a sticky political situation while sinking Carters career.

Please let it be Trump vs Biden in 2020:

That would be epic!

Sadly though, I think Trump will be running against Bathhouse Barry's husband.

That will be disgustingly awful and hateful.

Still waiting on those photos of Mike when he was "pregnant," but I guess they are all locked up with Barry's college transcripts...

Let' clear something up about the late 1970's.

Bush was the anointed one, he was going to do all those things. The show had already started. They know what they could pull off after JFK, RFK, MLK and the whole NAM ordeal.

Reagan came out of nowhere to take them on. But Reagan knew to win he would have to bring Bush along, even after the nation turned to him as a possible leader who could change the nation. It was a serious fight early on and many thought Bush would win the primary.

Then if you look at the first days in office, it was clear Reagan had domestic concerns and wrestling down big gov't and big military and secret graft and political funding down as much as possible, this is what he had campaigned on and it was starting to move into action. He had 8 years and much of the nation was confident we could turn the ship around in those 8 years. But after just a few months he was shot and the entire agenda was a 180 degree about face and the new #1 agenda item came straight out of left field.

Straight out of left field and I want to be 100% clear about that. USSR or Russia being a threat to us was not even close to anybody on main street's concerns. The MSM, wiki or status quo promoters have already started to re-write history and to spin it their way. There was absolutely nothing Reagan could do regarding the hostage issue, he was forced to go along with it but his agenda was domestic, starting with the money - that is until the bullet went into his chest, next to his heart.

So then why did Reagan make such a big deal during the campaign about Carter being soft on the Soviets? You say there was nothing said about that until after he was shot, but I already proved in the other thread that that simply was not true, but you still keep going with it.

I think it would be funny as shite to see Biden become President. Biden is the epitome of official corruption - using AF1 to take his drug addict son to China, who had just been kicked out the military for his cocaine addiction, and leaves China with 1.5 Billion for his son's startup hedge fund. Or, getting Ukraine to stop investigating his son's corruption or Biden would withhold US aid in the billions. Tip of the iceberg.

The MSM is propping up Biden the same way they did Clinton. Anybody who believes those polls are dumb.
And probably should be hung.

So then why did Reagan make such a big deal during the campaign about Carter being soft on the Soviets? ,,,
It was said but it didn't seem to us to be a "big deal" and it appeared to most of us as similar to his taking of Bush as VP. A move required to get elected.

We were against those statements, but watching Reagan and listening to where he placed the top 4 or 5 talking points, we believed that this was another move required to get elected. It was not constantly talked about during the campaign the way the other domestic platforms were. It came in the later stages and again, we believed Reagan was told that if he didn't throw a bone to the establishment which Bush led then they too would fight him alongside the democrats. Carter had already sold out to TPTB and it wasn't clear at exactly what point they were going to release the hostages. They could have done it prior to the general election.

Anyway, at no point during the primaries or the general run up did anyone in the nation embrace a war or a conflict footing. The nations was sick of McCarthyisms and would have run for the hills away from any politicians claiming the USSR was our biggest concern at that time. People were sick of Nam and the whole military conquest idea. Eisenhower's speech to the nation wasn't but a few decades prior. People were focused on the just then hitting 1T debt and the runaway, out of control, cradle to grave, control everything nanny state. Everyone saw how LBJ and prior big gov't ideas both foreign and domestic didn't solve any of the problems they were touted to solve.

After returning from the hospital, myself and many if not most of the people I spoke with at the time said the whole thing was straight out of 1984, nobody ever expected the media to go crazy like that, with "the Russians are coming..."

I remember watching the 7th game of the world series when they suddenly switched over to spend the rest of the evening watching a Ford Bronco go 2 mph down an emptied so. calif. freeway. That felt very strange too, one of those events where the narrative tells you what's important, not the other way around. But even that was nothing compared to the month following Reagan's return.

The polling for our election was total rubbish. They are reviewing their methodology after the embarrassment of it all. These polls now use social media etc and they treat it as an unbiased source. FarceBook, Twater, unbias... yeah right!

it was part of his campaign. He accused Carter of being soft on the Soviets. Just because you can't remember does not mean it didn't happen. It's clearly on the record.
...and who is the "us" you are referring to?


It was not constantly talked about during the campaign the way the other domestic platforms were.
it was so part of his campaign. You've already stated that you can't recall for sure and need to upgrade your pc in order to research this. So how can you possibly be so adamant that you are correct when the evidence shows that you are so very wrong?

Hey Joe,
I don't think you're giving FM enough credit. He's brilliant!

Why bother upgrading the pc to do research as long as one can still get on a forum? Not sure about a particular topic? No problem. Get on GIM2 and speculate wildly about it. Soon enough the correct answer will come along.

Absolutely brilliant!

Looking at recent footage of Creepy Joe, I noticed his eyes are beady and black as coal. Demon possession? Too much baby blood?
No telling what they're doing in the dark recesses of the DNC these days.
