Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: Bernie and Bloomberg and Biden (And Liz and Amy and Pete), oh my!

The Abbreviated Pundit Round-up is a daily feature at Daily Kos. That ABC poll can be found here. With the new NPR/PBS Marist poll, Mike Bloomberg makes the debate and gets a chance to see how he takes a punch. That should help Bernie and hurt Bloomberg, but nobody knows nothing™ this primary season, so  ¯_(ツ)_/¯. Also, VA polling from Monmouth (March 3, Super Tuesday in two weeks) shows Bernie and Bloomberg as the frontrunners tied at 22%, and gives you an idea of what Super Tuesday is starting to feel like. Pro tip: California is voting already, 600K ballots already cast. That’s more than IA and NH combined.

Mckay generally positions her miniature paintings against the real-life backdrop, juxtaposing the two depictions that she then shares on Instagram. More
