Ron Filipkowski@RonFilipkowski·30mBREAKING: The FL State GOP Chair and his wife who co-founded Moms for Liberty are reportedly being investigated for sexual battery after a woman alleging she was in a sexual relationship with the couple filed a complaint.A pretty bizarre story but DeSantis is really close to these folks.
Oh dear! Apparently, there are illegally made sex tapes of these gatherings. Mrs Moms for Liberty is Casey DeSantis best pal.

Newsom wanted to continue for another half hour and they all agreed to it and then went to an ad break and when they came back they were both gone. Hannity then said they both had other commitments. Looks like Ron didn't fancy it and did a runner.
Newsom won if you're on the left and DeSantis won if you're on the right. Think DeSantis overall had the better night but was bound too with Hannity in the chair.
NBC and Politico confirm that Newsom's wife called it off.

Polls are like Roman roads. Well maintained with a solid foundation in truth, they can be straight and truly lead you in the right direction. However, polls that buy data from The Epoch Times must be regarded as a twisted road to hell. Anyway, polls will not change the odds on Betfair.
Yep, that's why following non biased polls means consistent profit.

SC has similar demographics to Iowa, white and religious. That's why Huckabee, Santorum and Cruz all did well in IA and SC but failed badly in NH. If Trump and DeSantis pull away in Iowa which is a horrible state for Haley IMO (the market doesn't think so but the market doesn't have any info that I don't have), and as I've said this year unlike previous ones is all about momentum. I know the polls have D + H close currently there but it'll widen significantly. That is just my opinion, I may be wrong, but DeSantis has everything going for him there.
DeSantis polling in Iowa has been almost static (high teens) since around the middle of July when his vote collapsed. Who is he going to gain votes from? Trump-maybe. Haley-doubtful.
Vivek-maybe. Christie-definitely not. The others are polling so low it's negligible.

I needed to know what you meant by, "entirely in the grip of racist demographic ideology ." just in case I misunderstood what you meant.
Give a for and against argument addressing why someone might describe the US Democratic Party in that way.
Policy Critique: Some critics argue that certain policies advocated by the Democratic Party, such as affirmative action or identity-focused initiatives, might be interpreted as emphasizing demographic factors, potentially leading to concerns about reverse discrimination or favoritism based on race.
Identity Politics: Critics may contend that the Democratic Party engages in what is known as "identity politics," wherein political positions are framed around specific demographic characteristics, potentially contributing to a perception of prioritizing certain groups over others.
Perceived Overemphasis on Diversity: Critics might suggest that the emphasis on diversity within the Democratic Party could be seen as prioritizing demographics over other considerations, possibly leading to accusations of tokenism or superficial inclusion.
Diverse Coalition: Supporters argue that the Democratic Party's focus on demographic issues is an effort to represent the diverse population of the United States. They maintain that the party's support for policies addressing racial and ethnic disparities is aimed at promoting equality rather than fostering discrimination.
Social Justice Advocacy: Advocates assert that the Democratic Party's stance on social justice issues reflects a commitment to addressing historical and systemic inequalities. Policies aimed at rectifying disparities, such as criminal justice reform and voting rights, are seen as attempts to create a more equitable society.
Inclusive Policies: Supporters argue that the Democratic Party's policies often aim to be inclusive, addressing the needs and concerns of various demographic groups. This inclusivity is framed as a positive approach that fosters unity and representation for all citizens.
It's important to note that opinions on political parties can vary widely, and perspectives on whether a party is influenced by a "racist demographic ideology" will depend on individual beliefs, values, and interpretations of the party's actions and policies.
Think about it!
I'm mainly laying and betting (scalping) on 'rump not because he's a racist but despite it.
The regular up and down in a point range of 6 ticks have been too hard to resist despite feeling soiled by backing 'rump in any way.

That's good news about a new Selzer poll, normally the top pollster not just in Iowa but incredibly accurate in the grand scheme of things. I particularly don't trust Trafalgar or Harris/Harvard.
Certainly better than Trafalgar and Fabrizio and the like, we've had very few good pollsters from the early states.
