Today I noticed CNN working overtime trying to prop up Hillary and Jeb.

So are most of the other major news media sources. The Good news is the Jeb is toast and the race is over for him.*

In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Lower Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. That is an average of a trifle over one mile and a third per year. Therefore, any calm person, who is not blind or idiotic, can see that in the Old Oolitic Silurian Period, just a million years ago next November, the Lower Mississippi River was upwards of one million three hundred thousand miles long, and stuck out over the Gulf of Mexico like a fishing-rod. And by the same token any person can see that seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Lower Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long, and Cairo and New Orleans will have joined their streets together, and be plodding comfortably along under a single mayor and a mutual board of aldermen. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. -- Mark Twain

Twelve years ago, in August 2003, Joe Lieberman led in most polls of the Democratic primary. Eight years ago, in August 2007, Rudy Giuliani maintained a clear lead in polls of Republicans, while Hillary Clinton led in polls of the Democratic nomination contest.

Leading the polls does not mean anything and if you look at history .. leading the polls at this time shows you will not be winning anything

Once again,

For the same comment,

If you're quoting Nate Silver, credit Nate Silver.

I think the point of the article is that the mainstream media should be doing more to portray Bernie like a serious contender. As Bernie is making these meteoric climbs all the politco news is just circling around hillary and her fucking emails...

I think that they are. The problem is that, so far, the DNC has made it their mission to suck all of the beltway oxygen out of what they want to be only "Hillary's" race. I mean the DNC will not even approve a candidate debate so there is little that the press can cover except for Bernie's stump speeches which do get covered. If I were Sanders, O'Malley and Webb I would just have a debate anyway. The press will cover it. As an added bonus, they could invite Hillary and set up a podium for her...when she doesn't show up for the debate, and there is an empty podium with her name on it, the optics would destroy her candidacy (Not that she is not already doing that on her own).

However, none of your examples correlate to Bernie Sanders current situation. All of your examples only focus on who has historically been on top of polls at the start of primary season.

Bernie Sanders has raised money from more individuals than any other candidate in history at this point in the primary season. The number of people at his crowds is far greater than any other candidate in history at this point in the primary season. This includes Barak Obama's rallies in 2008, which at the time people noted was record breaking. Bernie Sanders has also proposed more substantive policies than any of his current contenders and more so than the typical candidate would at this point in the primary season.

There is a part of me that honestly believes that whomever the Dems nom is going to be trounced in 2016.

Totally anecdotally of course... but it seems to me the majority of Americans are tired as hell with the over saturation of progressive nonsense over the past 8 years. Even though Bernie is getting momentum, there is no way he matches Obama in 08.

America is the great pendulum. We swing between extreme liberalism and extreme conservatism.

Just my opinion.

Does "Polling Trajectory" mean if a candidate goes from 0% to 10% in 1 month they will get 140% of the vote in the election 14 months from now? Because Favorable 43% vs Favorable 36% is losing.

It's showing a positive trend that if continues will top Clinton. And it's not 1 month of data but 6 so it's a bit better sample size...

It's crazy to hear the narrative still being spun in favor of clinton. NPR today was discussing whether or not Biden would run, and how if he did Hillary may finally have a candidate to run against...one that would actually challenge her. They went on to say that currently she's running against her mistakes.
