Joe Biden drops in triple bond with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in new 2020 primary poll that yields more than HALF of Democrats 1% or less
A new poll by a small group of Democratic voters has put the 2020 presidential primary race in chaos, with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren jumping in a virtual three-way tire with Joe Biden.
The Monmouth University Poll found the senators in Vermont and Massachusetts with 20 percent of their party's registered voters each, and saw the former vice-president fall to third place with 19 percent.
That may indicate a sea change in the race, with moderate voters leaving Biden for his more left-wing rivals.
Pollsters contain answers from just 298 people across the United States, a sample size of less than a third of what most data scientists use.
The once considerable lead of former vice-president Joe Biden in the demorcatic presidential primary race in 2020 has fallen to zero, according to a new poll
Senators Bernie Sanders from Vermont (right) and Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts (left) are in a heat with Biden in a poll that attracts interest because of the small sample size
But Monmouth & # 39; s latest survey, two months ago, had Biden at 32 percent – a higher level of support at that time than Sanders and Warren together.
No one else in the last poll achieved double digits. Kamala Harris, California, remained at 8 percent, a number that was twice as high as that of the following competitors on the list.
Of the 21 Democrats covered by the survey, 11 registered 1 percent or less.
& # 39; The most important part of this poll is that the democratic race has become volatile & # 39 ;, said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. & # 39; Liberal voters are starting to look for a candidate they can identify with. Moderate voters, who have paid less attention, seem to express doubts about Biden. But they hurl more towards one of the left-leaning contenders with high name recognition rather than to a lesser-known candidate who could connect better with them politically. & # 39;
Warren has seen her popularity rise as she reaches out to her party's socialist wing with promises of corporate tax increases and tax-paid health care throughout the country.
Among registered Democratic voters and those who & # 39; Democrat & # 39; She has a positive assessment rate of 65 percent and only 13 percent disapproval.
Biden and Sanders are neck to neck with hair on positive approval at 66 and 64 percent, respectively. But both men have a quarter of the democratic voters who view them unfavorably.
Biden has hemorraghing support as the public absorbs a daily diet from its campaign trail gaffes.
Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer questioned less than 1 percent in the Monmouth survey; he needed 2 percent to qualify for the presidential primary debate in September, but has two days left to hope for a new survey to save him from the bubble
Last week he claimed that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. both were killed in the 1970s, ten years later than reality.
On Saturday, he praised the virtues of Vermont while holding a campaign speech in neighboring New Hampshire.
And Friday, when he talked about the civil rights movement in America, he claimed that more than 40 students were shot during a Vietnam war protest in 1970 at Kent State University.
In reality, the National Guard forces killed four students and injured nine other people.
Political junkies watched Monday on a near-final-place finisher, billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, to reach 2 percent support. That is the level that he needed to qualify for the September Democratic primary debate in Houston, Texas.
However, Steyer registered less than 1 percent. He can still qualify if another survey places him 2 percent or higher on Wednesday evening.
Polling is one of the two measures that every candidate must delete to win a place on the podium; the other is a collection of fundraising statistics.
So far, 10 democrats have taken their place in the next debate. If 11 make the cut, the event is divided into two nights.
