Can the gay mayor save the DNC?

Failure has consequences. The Democrat Party's failure to deliver on Obama's promises -- followed by the Crash of the Hillarydenberg zeppelin -- has riled the party's voters. Bernie Sanders is now the front runner according to the Democrat house organ, the New York Times.

At least in Iowa.

While polls are just numbers on a spreadsheet, watching Democrat officials panic tells me something is up. Their covert Anybody But Bernie campaign shows quiet desperation on the part of DNC insiders. I explained this in great detail on Tuesday.

Bernie's argument is, look, Democrats tried to act middle of the road last time. That did not work. After the DNC screwed me, I could have made trouble, but I played nice. It's time we stopped hiding the socialist agenda. I am the best salesman of socialism you have.

And he can make a good case for this having sold Vermont on him as a mayor, congressman, and now senator. Vermont is rural, white, and old.

If Bernie wins and take New Hampshire, he should have the nomination locked up. They too are rural, white, and old.

It's easy to see Democrats extrapolate that against Trump Land, and count their chickens before the eggs are laid.

But the party insiders don't want him. Who can they turn to to stop him?

The Times poll surprise is Pete Buttigieg finishing second in a virtual tie with Biden, who was in his second term in the Senate when the gay mayor was born. As Biden falters, Buttigieg rises.

The Times also reported, "The rise of Mr. Sanders has come at the expense of his fellow progressive, Senator Elizabeth Warren: she dropped from 22% in the October poll, enough to lead the field, to 15% in this survey. Senator Amy Klobuchar, who is garnering 8%, is the only other candidate approaching double digits."

Klobuchar is from neighboring Minnesota. She should get 10 points just for that. Instead, she sits at 8% ahead of only the millionaire vanity candidates.

The Times also said, "A victory by Mr. Sanders in Iowa, where he suffered a narrow loss to Hillary Clinton four years ago, would represent a remarkable comeback for a 78-year-old candidate whose heart attack in October threatened to upend his candidacy. It would also create a moment of high anxiety for establishment-aligned Democrats who are deeply alarmed about a potential Sanders nomination."

The horse race reporting oddly ignores Buttigieg's second-place finish, which shocked me.

He was mentioned 14 times. Warren dropped to fourth place and was mentioned 25 times.

Sanders has raised $61.5 million, Buttigieg $51.5 million, Warren $49.8 million, and Biden $37.6 million.

Chris Donaldson wrote, ""Despite being held hostage in Washington by Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the feisty old socialist is now the favorite to win in Iowa and that momentum could carry into the New Hampshire primary which is right in Bernie's back yard.

"If Bernie wins both, then he's going to have a full head of steam going into the heart of the primary season and it could lead to his socialist swarm celebrating his nomination.

"According to the updated betting odds for the 2020 nomination by Real Clear Politics, Bernie has overcome a double-digit deficit in the last seventeen days and is now leading Barack Obama's former second banana by four points."

Here is how it looks from Poca, West Virginia. The impeachment is showing the public how corrupt and crooked Biden is. This is a shock to many. He is the big loser in all this.

Meanwhile, the impeachment allows 78-year-old Bernie to get his rest while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other surrogates fill in. AOC is the soul of the soulless party. A rock star. Evita but not the moldy Madonna kind. This helps Bernie's brand. Voters want new and AOC provides that.

Biden is falling. Warren has fallen. And Klobuchar never stood up. The money men -- Bloomberg, Steyer and Yang -- are just having fun.

Pete Buttigieg may be the last best hope for the DNC insiders.

More likely, they will manipulate the caucuses again and screw Sanders again. They will prop Biden up like it was a sequel to "Weekend at Bernie's."

This will help doom their eventual nominee, but just as Washington does not care about Americans as much as it cares about power, so the DNC cares about Democrats.
