Tulsi Update--Polls, Unions, and HIIT Workouts
The polls continue to roll in, and Tulsi continues to perform better than 1% in non-qualifying polls and 1% or below in all qualifying polls.
The latest bits of polling interest include a California primary poll from Emerson, where Tulsi scores 2%. Considering how large a state California is, and its new early placement in the Super Tuesday primary lineup, it's interesting to see her gaining some ground there.
Tulsi will almost certainly not make the October debate, but as she has stated, she will continue campaigning until the convention next summer.
On the policy front, Tulsi has expressed her support for the UAW strike against General Motors:
If you are curious, she has regulary stood up for union membership, as in this speech:
Finally, Tulsi is a huge proponent of high-intensity-interval training (HIIT) for her exercise workouts, and has posted a few videos about it, with the latest one here:
The nice thing about these is the complete body workout nature of them, and the huge number of calories burned, in a short amount of time. Tulsi has encouraged me to look into HIIT (which I was almost completely unaware of previously), and I have to say--even at my advancing middle agedness--these are great workouts!
I encourage anyone with the ability to try out some of the beginner workouts--just look up some beginner HIIT on YouTube (as always, check with your doctor, don't kill yourself, do what you are able even if it's just part of an exercise). Here is one example with no jumping:
It's harder than it looks! But, I'm thankful for Tulsi for promoting this. I wouldn't want to go up against her in a fight!
