"The myth of Sanders' November advantage" | Mother Jones Magazine | 04/21/16

"The myth of Sanders' November advantage" | Mother Jones Magazine | 04/21/16 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
He has yet to fully face the obvious attack.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

......UPDATE: A reader notes that last year Gallup released a poll asking voters about their attitudes regarding political candidates of various races, religions, and beliefs. Over 90 percent said they would be willing to vote for a woman, a black person, a Hispanic, a Jew, or a Catholic. Over 70 percent said the same about a gay or lesbian candidate or an evangelical Christian. Only 60 percent said they would be willing to vote for a Muslim, and 58 percent said they could see themselves casting a ballot for an atheist. The label that fared the worst in this survey was socialist. Forty-seven percent said they would be willing to support a socialist candidate; 50 percent said they would not. Certainly, in the Democratic primary, Sanders has not been hindered by his identification with democratic socialism. But in this poll, only 49 percent of independents said they would not be willing to vote for a socialist. The poll was conducted last June, and it may well be that Sanders' performance in the months since has altered public attitudes toward a socialist candidate. Yet the survey's results do suggest the socialist tag could be a problem for Sanders in a general election.

"Bernie Sanders, the presidential candidate who rails against the corrupting influence of money in politics, is doing very well in soliciting high dollar campaign donations.''

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

....Well, Well, "Mr. Get Money Out Of Elections"  seems have a campaign based on getting "lots big money in" but not as "many votes in the ballot box".  Here are some important points to note:

  • The Bernie 2016 PAC has raised over $96 million as of the end of January 2016.Nearly half of those contributions are from people who gave $200 or more;
  • Despite its $96 million haul, the campaign spent $80,729,110 in operating expenses and refunded $880,331 in contributions during this reporting period. Yes, nearly $1 million dollars had to be returned; and
  • The campaign coffers were impacted on February 11 when the FEC found discrepancies in its 2015 filing that included $23 million in unitemized receipts as well as excessive, prohibited or illegal contributions. Two weeks later, a FEC review of Bernie 2016 for January 2016 found another round of campaign finance problems. Excessive and prohibited campaign contributions were again noted.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:
.............TODAY's ACTION REQUEST: Unpledged delegates, or “super delegates,” are delegates to the Democratic Convention who are not required to pledge their support to a candidate until the convention. Unpledged delegates are members of the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Governors, Democratic Members of Congress and distinguished party leaders.A large majority of unpledged delegates have endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Unfortunately, many of these delegates have come under attack by supporters of Bernie Sanders as a result. Help push back on these attacks and show your support for those who are supporting Secretary Clinton. Together, we are #BarrierBreakers2016. Share your appreciation on social media today.

After a trio of landslide wins in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii on Saturday — the best single day of his campaign — Bernie Sanders narrowed his delegate deficit with Hillary Clinton. But he still has a lot of work to do. Sanders trails Clinton by 228 pledged delegates and will need 988 more — a bit under 57 percent of those available — to finish with the majority.

The Little Green Plant That Could: Duckweed as a Renewable and Sustainable Biofuel Feedstock

To meet the energy demands of a booming global population and preserve biosphere integrity, we must reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and find a more cost-effective and sustainable energy source. The development of renewable biofuels will aid in overcoming these daunting economic and environmental challenges. Corn, the main biofuel feedstock in the United States today, has serious drawbacks as an energy source; its high-maintenance cultivation requires significant amounts of fertilizer and freshwater while competing with food crops for arable land. In contrast, the small aquatic plant duckweed has emerged as a highly promising biofuel feedstock. Its composition—high starch and low lignin—is ideal for ethanol production. Furthermore, duckweed does not compete with land crops, grows rapidly, and is easily harvestable. We are actively constructing a demonstration pipeline to assess the potential of duckweed as a renewable and sustainable crop for ethanol production. Liquid sewage is used as an inexpensive fertilizer source to support duckweed growth, and post-harvest, the cleaned wastewater can be recycled. Optimization of this new approach involves screening duckweed plants collected from around the world to find a strain that is best suited for ethanol production. However, morphological identification of duckweed species and ecotypes can be difficult, as many appear similar or identical. Thus, we are employing DNA-based methods in the laboratory to develop reliable methods of distinguishing duckweed strains. These efforts will lay the groundwork for future experiments, allowing us to gain much needed insight into basic duckweed biology.
