Marianne Williamson is polling higher than Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Jay Inslee...

I say out loud (as I read about a new poll of registered voters in New Hampshire).

The response from Meade was singing: "Hey, Marianne, what's your game now, can anybody play?" Based on:



It's a pretty small poll — only 390 respondents — but it's fascinating that Marianne Williamson got 1.5%, and "serious" candidates Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Jay Inslee lagged behind (with 1.2, 1.0, 0.7, and 0.3, respectively).

ADDED: If a pollster called you up, why wouldn't you say "Marianne"? It says so many things. For example it says: I know who you are pollster, but you don't know me, you don't know anything about my world.

AND: Screw the pollsters! Everyone should say "Marianne."

I've got a new age girl (Tell us what she's like)
An environmentalist girl (Does she ride a bike)
She has crystal necklace (She spend a lot of cash)
Though her vibes are rather reckless (She's heading for a crash)
Oh her flowing skirt is blowing in a transcendental wind
And she wonders without knowing where did she begin..
Maryanne... she's a vegetarian (Marianne, Marianne, Marianne)
Marianne... will outlive all the septuagenarians (Marianne, Marianne, Marianne)
Oh, she loves me so
She hates to be alone
She don't eat meat
But she sure like the bone

Tulsi Gabbard is a serious candidate? Almost nobody knows who she is. Kirsten Gillibrand is delusional.

Meade said...

For now I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a Gillette razorblade
You left when I told you I was curious
I never said that I was brave
Oh, so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

dreams said...

She's just a twenty first century version of a hippie, a new generation hippie. All we need is love. But hey, that's the best the crooked democrats have.

Eric said...

To explain my point. People are fed up with politicians (and the politics-obsessed media). So being a Professional Politician doesn't buy you respect or credibility. Also, polls are the tools of these groups, so very few people cooperate (look at the response rate, not the number who they eventually got), which explains why polls are so wrong.

mccullough said...

The Clintons froze out Gillibrand. Booker comes off as unstable.

The two Senators are so weak the other candidates would rather have Marianne’s endorsement when she drops out

robother said...

Marianne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night forever
And you know that she's half-crazy but that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
Then he gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer that you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind....

The Cracker Emcee Refulgent said...

Oh, I wouldn’t call Jay a serious candidate. As crappy as the Democrats are, Jay couldn’t even make it on to the Yippie ticket.

Big Mike said...

Jay Inslee’s 0.03% works out to precisely one voter of the 390 polled. Which leads to a question: there’s a voter in New Hampshire who knows who Jay Inslee is?

Embrace (figuratively) the candidate of Love, Marianne Williamson.

Tom Steyer's campaign ads have been getting heavy airplay. They are not persuasive.

Messing with the pollsters? Old news following the election of Trump.

Marianne!!!

Marianne's new campaign ad,

"Chanting at 417Hz." !?!

"The sound Om, when chanted, vibrates at the frequency of 432 Hz, which is the same vibrational frequency found throughout everything in nature."

Also some old dead guy tuned something to 432Hz.

All you need is love.

As long as people are still having promiscuous sex with many anonymous partners while at the same time experimenting with mind-expanding drugs in a consequence-free environment, I’ll be sound as a pound!

Joe Biden--Has he touched your heart? your shoulders? your hair?

Marianne Williamson--Dream a little dream of me.

Kristen Gillibrand--Join the Cult!

Corey Booker-- Rosario for Secretary of Boo and Tee Bone for Director of National Security

Tulsi gabbard--Surf's up!

bwebster said...

I donated $25 to her campaign. It was, honestly, out of mischievousness, but I find her such a breath of fresh air on either side of the campaign that I'd hate to see her drop out too soon.

Nonapod said...

In 2016 there were 253,062 people who voted in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. Statistically speaking, 390 really is far too small a sample size to be meaningful.

Fun fact: Bernie won the 2016 New Hampshire primary in a landslide, crushing Hillary with 152,193 votes to her 95,355.

As I've said before, my Mother's sewing circle is run like a Misinformation Op.

They deliberately lie to pollsters because they believe the Media works for the Dems and they want to keep them blinded. "Don't give the enemy intel!" LOL 😂

I need to call her (bad Fen!). I'll bet she can tell me more about Marianne than I know.

Steyer is showing that the whole group of candidates are losers and he might as well spend his money on himself.

CWJ said...

I'm a little surprised that there's no Graham Nash in that Hollies clip. Given the mod clothing and haircuts, I would have thought he was still with them then.

Marianne to the barricades!

Clyde said...

It may sound weird, but Marianne is probably the only candidate in their primary who has any kind of chance against Trump. She is the only one who seems to have any kind of positive message beyond the "I hate Trump and Republicans!" that the rest of the candidates are touting. She also has a degree of celebrity, not as much as Trump had in 2016m but she does have a built-in fan base of people who support her for non-political reasons. If she can get them to come out and vote in the early primaries, she has the potential to be the out-of-nowhere candidate who catches fire and breezes past the tired establishment candidates. Of course, the Democrat party fixers would probably Bernie her, since she's not one of them, but it will take another outsider to defeat Trump.

AND: Screw the pollsters! Everyone should say "Marianne."

I've been saying this to anyone who would listen for more than 30 years though I stole the idea from Chicago columnist Mike Royko who was telling his readers to lie to the pollsters as far back as the 70s.

So good on you, Ann. This is an even better idea than saying lie to the pollsters. Don't just lie, give them a specific answer.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if President Trump came out and said something like this? "Hey folks, if asked by a pollster don't tell them you are for me. You see the grief people get when the support me openly. just tell them you are voting for Marianne."

Even though I had to send it to the odious Act Blue, I did give some money to her. It might have been as much as $5 but probably less. I was just trying to get her to the 65m # needed to get her on the debate stage.

Does anyone know if giving again will help get her into the 2nd debate?

Great idea for a campaign poster. She could not do it herself, of course, but someone could do her with a peace flag, blue sky and rainbows in the background, none of the gore and ugliness.

But Marianne in the same pose.

And of course one teat hanging out to get attention.

A good version of this would probably go viral and maybe bump her into the lead.

John henry said...

Fen,

I see you, or at least your mother's sewing circle (do they do book reviews and timing too?) also have the right idea.

Never heard the "Don't give the enemy intel" justification explicitly but it is just what Royko was saying 50 years ago better stated.

I'm stealing it. Apologize to your mom for me, please.

Marianne has a fun subreddit (r/Marianne2020) with 3.9k subscribers. It's mostly memes, like T_D was before the last election.

Corey Booker has one (not fun one) with one member. One!

The subreddit for Elizabeth Warren has 19k. It just has boring news posts. There's a President Warren subreddit that's also boring and has 2.3k members.

For Harris, there's r/Kamala with 2.9k boring people; r/KamalaIsACop with 654 people who don't appear to be fans; and r/Harris2020 with 351 people trying to convince each other there's something there.

r/JoeBiden only has 1.3k members. No good memes there either.

r/The_Donald is still fun, even though it's been quarantined. Actually, the quarantine makes it better. Fewer bots and fewer brigades.

No matter what people say, it didn't happen that way
She was a passing fling and not a permanent thing
C'mon Marianne

I usually don’t respond to pollsters. But when I do I always lie, always. Unless they pay me. If they paid me I’d tell them the truth. But I encourage people to lie to pollsters.

Brian said...

She's in the second debate. What hasn't been decided yet I think is which night. Her poll numbers are better than some though so she should be closer to the middle which I think will help her give more complete answers.

Chuck Todd kept interrupting her and moving her on, but I think that was because she was either the first or last usually in any question, being the furthest on stage left.

Marianne with the shaky hands
What they've done to her, man, those shaky hands
Plenty of drums!

And chakras and whatnot.

How demeaning and racist is that?

Do any of these White Guilt Liberals know any self-respecting Black people?

whitney said...

Yes! If she makes it to the primaries I will volunteer on her campaign

William said...

I think several of the Dem candidates will receive less votes than Marianne. I wonder who will receive the least. My money's on DeBlasio. I think it's possible that he will not receive a single vote in some states.

According to Marriane, gnostic peace is at hand.

I feel better, just knowing that.

traditionalguy said...

I want to see Marianne cast demons out of the Hindu Candidate. That would create an instant following like that Jewish kid from Nazareth. She was raised Conservative Jewish by a Jewish mother and father named named Kaplan and Vishnevesky. She is a natural.

Yancey Ward said...

So, Inslee has one confirmed supporter in New Hampshire, and Williamson has five.

hstad said...

Gees, AA talk about reporting on 'Trivia'. Love Meade's response to your article.

John P. Wintergreen won the Presidency running on a platform of love. No reason why Williamson couldn't do so as well.

Ginger or Marianne?

Snort. I'm polling higher than Jay Inslee.

Won't vote for Marianne until she converts to 440.

That's a pretty high voltage. You don't typically want to run a candidate at more than 110. Trump runs at 220 and you see how that's working out.

Joe Biden is probably the most economical: they run him at 12V so he can recharge from limo cigarette lighters..

tcrosse said...

Trump runs at 220

Three phase, too.

Unknown said...

I send money to keep her in the race. You should too.

Bilwick said...

Apparently Ms. Williamson meditated and visualized and did a treasure map of people supporting her. And it worked!

Just as when she's elected president she will meditate and visualize amd treasure map the repeal of the Law of Supply and Demand and other unpleasant realities.

Big Mike said...

I just found the poll online. Believe it or not Beto O’Rourke is polling worse than Inslee! He’s at zero.

In 1995, Graham Nash revealed that he had written the song for Marianne Faithfull but was "too shy" to use her real name.

I hit the Hollies link. Nice. "On a Carousel" at the link was done live. Everybody mic'd and plugged in superior piece. Grahm's added voice is a big plus here. What a great little band.

Marianne, and the Skipper too.

Rabel said...

What's most interesting to me is that the St. Anslam poll results show minor math errors on very simple calculations.

Scroll down the link to the "Democratic Primary Ballot" chart and see for example that Booker got four 4 votes and was calculated at 1.2% of 351 total while Gabbard got 4 votes of 351 total and was calculated at 1.0%.

The percentages of almost all 12 named candidates are off by a tenth of a percentage point - some up, some down. They did get Biden right at 73 of 351 equals 20.8% after after rounding.

Strange.

Marc said...

Was 'joking' about Marianne tuning to A at 440 Mh, from 432. But the electricity jokes are actually funny. :-)
