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:

Tulsi HIIT

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:

15 Minute Beginner HIIT 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!

The fact that Tulsi continues to gain ground in "non-qualifying" polls, but routinely underperforms (apparently) in "qualifying" polls suggests that some form of "poll-doctoring" (=> manipulation) is going on ☹️ --

When Cicero had finished speaking, the people said “How well he spoke”.
When Demosthenes had finished speaking, the people said “Let us march”.

@jwa13

the primary. This just tells me that they don't give a rat's ass if Trump gets reelected or not. Gee I wonder if he does will they continue with their impeachment farce and Russia Gate crap so that they don't have to tell people why they keep putting up such crappy candidates? They knew that Hillary's history was a turn off for most voters, but they pushed her on us anyway. Now they're pushing ByeDone.

Hey..check out Jimmy's video in tonight's EBs. It's a winner!

@snoopydawg If Sanders or Gabbard somehow snared the Democratic nomination, they’d be going full bore on praising Trump and slandering “their” candidate. Anyone else, and they’ll just engage in their usual behavior, that gets Trump re-elected in a more devious way, by nauseating everyone.

Why isn’t she a participant? It’s supposedly open to everyone. I don’t see any mention of it on Tulsi2020.

@tle

I read that a lot of candidates had previous plans for that night. I think some of them are doing something at an LGBT meeting or something..,I didn't really pay attention. But there is no issue bigger than climate change. I have already forgotten if the last one was worth it or not? But just what is congress doing about it? Nada. I haven't heard one democrat talking about the things Trump is doing to deregulate every damn thing he can.

Obama tweeted out something about Greta the Swedish climate change girl and boy is he getting shit for it. Something like...

"I'm so proud of the work she is doing on this issue" and people are saying that she is cleaning up after his abhorrent drilling, fracking and warring policies. He opened up more areas for it, but people are thinking that Trump is the only problem. This blindness to Obama's horrible presidency bugs the hell out of me.

@snoopydawg The Big O's (as in zero's) presidency was an absolute Obamanation (ugh).

Tulsi won by not attending the stupid climate change debate.

Flash--breaking news! Climate fluctuations are real. But are anthropogenic causes at play? Then why fossilized palm trees in Spitzbergen?

@snoopydawg Long before Obama was gone, I couldn’t stand to watch one of his speeches. His words just reminded me of all the horrible things he was doing.
