    Bill Maher has said for many months that the Dems need to get their message heard by Conservatives and the only way to do that is for Democrat presidential candidates to appear on conservative programs.

    Most of the conservative people I know are most likely never going to change their minds even those that know Trump has shafted the majority of them so not sure whether Maher's suggestion is workable or not.

    Well as usual politicians care about their poll numbers but in this case its Trump talking about the recent Fox News poll.

    President Trump on Monday dismissed a new poll from Fox News that showed him losing to multiple 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, saying "something weird" is happening at the network favored by conservatives.

    Fox News on Sunday released a poll that showed Trump trailing five Democratic presidential contenders in hypothetical 2020 match-ups. The survey showed former Vice President Joe Biden leading Trump by 10 points.

    It also showed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) carrying a 9-point lead in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up. Three other Democratic candidates — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — also polled ahead of Trump, albeit within the survey's margin of error.

    The Democrats are doing the same thing the Republicans did in 2016 in that they have too many announced candidates, which split the votes in the primaries to a point that Trump came out on top even though he had less than half the vote, so they ended up with someone that a big part of the voters didn't want. And it didn't help that the Republican leadership did nothing to stop him and come up with another choice. With so many Democrats running the same situation could happen with them where an extremist that a large part of voters don't want comes out on top because of the vote being split, so we end up with the choices in November being two extremists on both ends of the political spectrum that leave a lot of voters wanting another choice or none of the above.

    Well the primary debates are like the Cable News Version of "Watching the league(NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) drafts" seen on the sports talk channels where pundits hype up ratings.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Don’t envy NBC News executive Rashida Jones, who is behind this week’s inaugural Democratic presidential debate and will have to juggle 20 candidates, five news personalities and, it’s likely, one tweeting president.

    While the event is obviously important for politicians getting their first wide exposure as potential presidents, the stakes are high for NBC News, too.



    “Primary debates are a big prestige event for every network,” said Mark Lukasiewicz, dean of Hofstra University’s school of communication, who had Jones’ job four years ago. “It’s why every network tries to get one and tries to get as many as they can. It’s a branding opportunity.”

    And hopefully with fewer candidates still running.

    And get rid of the audience. They serve no purpose except to get the candidates playing to them and wasting time.

    What amazed me is how the audience applauded everything, even the obviously weak or embarrassing answers. Do they have an "applause" sign like they do on "Let's Make a Deal" and the sitcoms with a studio audience?
