I knew it, I knew it, I knew it.
Sen. Bernie Sanders and his Scandinavian Socialism are on life support after the new Iowa Poll came out showing that he’s fading into oblivion. Former Vice President Joe Biden has only strengthened his lead over the Vermont Senator and the schoolmarm Sen. Elizabeth Warren is moving up oh so quietly behind Sanders and is striking distance.
When voters are asked about Biden in some way, shape or form, 61% of the consensus says that he is “on their list in some way.” As for Sanders, his support is found in those who are less likely to caucus.
J. Ann Selzer, President of the Des Moines-based Selzer & Co., summarized the new polling information with this statement,
Selzer: “We’re starting to see the people who are planning to caucus start to solidify. There’s a lot more commitment than we normally see this early. And some of these candidates who’ve been under the radar start to surface and compete with Joe Biden, explaining that in fields as big as the Democratic field standing out and getting voters to pay attention is crucial, and Elizabeth Warren appears to have managed to do so.
Bloomberg also reported that while Biden had only lost three percentage points, Bernie had lost nine. Nobody likes someone that is 100% negative that always talks about bringing people together.
As the absolute front-runner, Biden has managed to maintain the lead, despite losing a few percentage points — 24 percent of Iowa Democrats say the former vice president is their first choice. The second place belongs to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who appears to be slowly fading in the polls — 16 percent of Iowans say that Sanders is their first choice for president.
The poll is good news for some: Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Warren has surged, receiving the support of 15 percent of Iowans, as has Buttigieg, who is the first choice of 14 percent of Iowa Democrats. No other candidate has managed to crack double digits, with California Senator Kamala Harris — who is polling at seven percent — taking the fifth place.
Behind Harris are Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke, both of whom are polling at two percent. [Inquisitr]
