De Blasio Gets Zero Votes In Major Iowa Poll

Wednesday, 12 Jun, 2019

As ominous as the general election matchups in the new Quinnipiac poll are some of the other questions it posed. Bernie Sanders of Vermont with 16 percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) with 2 percent, and Sen.

President Trump unleashed a furious attack on Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden on Tuesday - hours before they were scheduled to deliver dueling speeches in the key battleground state of Iowa. Following Biden and Warren, Sanders is third with 27% and Buttigieg at 24%.

Warren has unveiled a raft of detailed proposals, ranging from a wealth tax to breaking up big tech companies. In keeping with her policy-heavy focus, Sen. She has jumped 4 percentage points since April 21.

The 37-year-old Buttigieg, meanwhile, has impressed voters with his imperturbable demeanor and thoughtful views on everything from cultural change to public service.

Inside Biden's inner-circle, that is their nightmare scenario, evoking memories of his 1988 bid that ended before Iowa and 2008, when he dropped out late the night of the caucuses.

Nineteen of the 23 Democratic presidential candidates descended on Iowa this weekend, each one looking for a way to stand out from the pack. Warren used the MSNBC town hall to say he was wrong, while Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Harris of California used Twitter to take issue with Biden on the Hyde Amendment question.

Seventy-six percent of black Democrats said they would be "enthusiastic" or "comfortable" with Mr. Biden, according to the survey commissioned by the Black Economic Alliance.

The findings, importantly, mirror the limited head-to-head polling we've seen in some key early states, with Trump trailing by as much as double digits in crucial MI and Pennsylvania, and even trailing Biden in Texas (!) in another Quinnipiac poll.

The "cashiers at Target ... know more about economics than Trump", Biden will assert. Harris, for example, announced her first local elected official endorsement more than two weeks ago, and Booker rolled out an Iowa steering committee at the start of this month.

A spokesperson from The Register said the poll methodology changed from its last few surveys. It put Biden way out ahead, with 33 percent support. The increased standing for both Warren and Buttigieg suggested a growing level of support for their candidacies.

The definitive winnowing likely will come in California, whose primary is March 3. Mr Sanders runs second to Mr Biden in most polls. Forty-seven percent say that several of the current candidates should exit the race, and 27 percent say a lot of them should do so.
