New York State Presidential Primary
Latest Polls, News And Views:
Tuesday marks yet another milestone in this year of shock-and -awe presidential primaries.
New Yorkers are set to go to the polls, perhaps in record numbers, to share this historic moment. The energy of the candidates is at fever pitch. An equally energized electorate is rallying for their preferred candidate.
The Democratic Primary in Brooklyn was riveting. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders electrified the debate venue.
“We’re going to win so much. You’re going to get tired of winning. you’re going to say, ‘Please Mr. President, I have a headache. Please, don’t win so much. This is getting terrible.’ And I’m going to say, ‘No, we have to make America great again.’ You’re gonna say, ‘Please.’ I said, ‘Nope, nope. We’re gonna keep winning.’ — Donald Trump
“There cannot be true democracy unless women’s voices are heard. There cannot be true democracy unless women are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their own lives. There cannot be true democracy unless all citizens are able to participate fully in the lives of their country.” — Hillary Clinton
I am talking about a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people against working families, against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of our country. The billionaires of America are on the warpath. They want more and more and more. — Bernie Sanders
They are not alone. Ted CruzMarco Rubio are crisscrossing the state hoping to finish in the top three.
Bernie Sanders is doing his best to garner more Democratic Party support than Hillary Clinton. Will Iowa provide Sanders with the long-term boost it gave Barack Obama or the soon-to-fade success it gave Rick Santorum?
More and more Iowans and other Americans may well feel their knowledge of the candidates has deepened but how many voters in Iowa and beyond know what the Iowa caucus even is.
A state which doesn’t make headlines outside of election cycles becomes for a time the center of the political universe.
The politicians may not be choosing to dance but those who feel their campaigns are on thin ice are certainly choosing for their campaign to go negative.
Negative campaigning must work, or at least politicians must believe it works, or they wouldn’t use it. Does the last poll before the Iowa caucus reflect the need for more negativity, more energy. more money, more public appearances and rallies or a combination of all of the above?
