Reuters/Ipsos national polling shows there are only four or all 5 viable Democrat candidates inside the race. Biden as well as also Bernie lead, as well as also everyone else is actually way far behind.
With that will level of inability to gain traction, if there isn’t another walk-on ‘chosen’ candidate, the 2020 primary is actually going to be a complete mess. [Poll pdf here]
(Via Reuters) […] The poll released on Wednesday found 29% of Democrats as well as also independents said they would likely vote for Biden inside the state nominating contests that will begin next year. that will is actually up by 24% who said so in a poll that will ran in late April, days before Biden announced his bid.
[…] Biden, 76, remains inside the strongest position for the top of the ticket despite questions about his age as well as also centrist positions. He also has faced criticism over his unwanted touching of women as well as also his treatment of law professor Anita Hill three decades ago during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearing.

Today is actually once I’ve dug into polling data… as well as also things are seriously goofy on the DNC club side of the 2020 election. What’s definitely surprising is actually the lack of support for anyone additional than Bernie or Biden.
Statistically, barring some unpredictable event, however the polling data aligns on July 1st, 2019 through August 1st, 2019, will be the exact same line-up outcome when the first 2020 primary is actually held seven months later. the idea won’t change much (if at all) between August 1st 2019, as well as also the 2020 Iowa caucus.
The DNC features a LOW-ENERGY problem, as well as also a lack of authenticity problem, as well as also they know the idea. the idea’s a hot mess.
