so were the IOWA results delayed to take away the Bernie Hype? will keeping Warren in the race help Biden? or will her delegates vote for Sanders?

"No one" means that they will be too close all the way to the convention?

Basically.

Quote
Each candidate’s chances of winning more than half of pledged delegates

Even if it's not close, it's still possible that no-one gets half of the delegates. For example, you can have one candidate with 40%, and 3 others with 20% each.

4d chess. Checkmate.
What is amazing is how despite the polling data showing that the vast majority wanted the Senate trial more in line with Dem demands than how the Rs conducted it, the congressional Rs seem to have gained from the process as well.

Are you better off economically now than 4 years ago? Don't worry so much about his vocabulary.

When dealing with polling on issues (as opposed to candidates) it's important to look at how they ask the questions, and not just the bottom line.

For example, in theory most people want to hear what Bolton has to say, but many of them likely did not think it would be appropriate to extend the trial to call him for a variety of reasons. (For example Executive privilege, the partisan nature of the process or because it wouldn't change the outcome)

How many times has @CountValentine claimed that one of Trumps policies was going to hurt the country, and how many have panned out?  The man is a hysteric and definitely deserves another 4 years of Trump just so he can continue on his rediculous tirades.....
