Biden & # 39; s polling benefit VANISHES in Iowa and New Hampshire as a public spotlight is about his son
Joe Biden's lead in early primary states has been resolved in recent months and has taken a dive as public interest shifted attention to his son's connections with Ukraine.
When he first announced earlier this year, the former vice president dominated the busy primary field with 40 percent popularity among national democratic voters, but he now follows marginally progressive contender Elizabeth Warren in some important early states.
In a Des Moines Register / CNN / Mediacom survey that was released on Saturday, Warren Biden slipped out with 22 percent support in Iowa to his 20s.
And in a poll released by Monmouth University on Tuesday, she again moved 2 percentage points ahead with 27 percent support from New Hampshire voters compared to 25 percent from Biden.
New Hampshire is the first primary state and the first caucus state is Iowa – these states are important because they are the scene of the presidential election every cycle.
The benefit of the Joe Biden survey slips away in the major primary states of New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, and Florida

Biden, a moderate democrat, still retains his lead in the other two early-voting states of South Carolina and Florida, but his lead over Warren and the rest of the democratic field continues to show signs of weakness.
He holds a 10-point lead over the Massachusetts senator in the early primary state of South Carolina, according to a Florida-based pollster, Ryan Tyson, who released a new poll on the state this week.
As many as 54 percent of those surveyed said they were not sure who they were voting for, and while 19 percent said they would go for Biden compared to the 9 percent who said they prefer Warren, this is a 18 percent slip for the former vice president.
Other candidates received support from that slip in South Carolina, but only 3 percent said they would vote for self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, who previously studied second in the national arena, but recently fell behind fellow progressive Warren.
Last week, Tyson also published a survey on the preferences of the Democratic primary voter in Florida.
Forty-nine percent said they were unsure, which is an increase of 21 percent over a previous poll. With 24 percent of the vote, Biden dropped 15 percent and in Florida Warren has 11 percent support.

The dip for Biden & # 39; s status in the polls has been a trend in recent months – probably a result of fire from progressives, questions about his age and endurance, his constant blunders and a continuous stream of negative reporting on moderate debate performance.
His fall in the election is probably also agitated by a recent focus shift from his campaign and more to the business activities of his son in Ukraine, who has attracted media attention since last week.
Reports revealed on Friday that a whistleblower claims in a telephone conversation in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Donald Trump tried to press him to investigate Biden & # 39; s son Hunter Biden.
Hunter is connected to a natural gas company in Ukraine.
The whistleblower, who has no direct knowledge of the call or conversation, says that Trump & # 39; s purpose of the conversation was to get dirt or harm his political rival.
In the past, Trump has said that he is probably & # 39; sleepy Joe Biden & # 39; would encounter in the general election.
But the president insists this week that his calling was not nepharian and that he only spoke about keeping foreign corruption outside of Ukraine, including from the US.
The revelations led Democrats on the fence to call for accusation and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that the room was launching a formal investigation into Trump's accusation.
The president admitted that he had mentioned Biden and his son during the phone call and said on Tuesday that as soon as he found the & # 39; full & # 39; transcript of the conversation, would be acquitted of misconduct.
The White House released the bomb scale transcript on Wednesday, revealing that Trump actually encouraged his counterparty to investigate Biden and work directly with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
