Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders Cancel Cleveland Rallies Over Coronavirus Concerns

Wednesday, 11 Mar, 2020

Democratic 2020 US presidential candidates Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden talk at the tenth Democratic 2020 presidential debate at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, South Carolina, US Feb 25, 2020.

Biden a moderate former vice president and Sanders a leftist senator calling for nothing less than a political revolution - are locked in a political duel to decide who faces President Donald Trump in the November election.

To wrap up - If Sanders wants to stay in this race, he'll need to over-perform in states such as Washington and MI and have a large turnout of Youth voters, which he did not get on Super Tuesday. While Michigan proved a hard state to poll in 2016, the latest surveys taking the 2016 electorate into account showed Sanders trailing Biden by double-digits in the Great Lake State.

Biden now frequently ticks off the names of six former presidential rivals who have endorsed him just in the past week, saying he is "the candidate that they think can win".

Both are proposing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars that would need to gain the support of lawmakers in both chambers of Congress.

MI "could be the turning point" of the campaign, Booker said at a Biden rally in Flint.

The one-on-one showdown will be a test of abilities of the candidates to win in the crucial general election battleground state of MI where 125 delegates are on offer.

"We can't pray he wins, we can't hope he wins, we can't wish that he wins", Booker said.

"We want them to feel comfortable exercising the right to vote", Schoeller said.

American voters are casting ballots again, the first time since last week's Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., speaks during a campaign rally Monday, March 9, 2020, in St. Louis.

"He's also really a Republican in my view", Greenwood, who owns a downtown coffee shop, said of Biden. "Unions built the middle class". That included Ocasio-Cortez, then an unknown 29-year-old who defeated Rep. Joe Crowley, who was viewed potentially as the next House speaker.

Twenty-two names will appear on the ballot today as Missouri Democrats head to the polls to choose a nominee for president.

Six states, including MI, vote in the primaries Tuesday.

Owing to his landslide win with Democrats Abroad in 2016, I'm going to break from FiveThirtyEight's simulations for Democrats Abroad and hand it over to Sanders. Polling from both states, which has been limited, give Biden a double-digit lead in both contests. There's no available polling that we saw in North Dakota but Senator Sanders did win there in 2016.

Biden also consistently reminds voters that he was Obama's vice-president, a nostalgic tactic that resonates with many Democratic voters.

"People are looking more for unity and community and working together and diversity", Harris told AFP. "Honestly, at this point I think that they have mostly finished putting out their policy proposals", he said.

Days before had won the endorsement of US Congressman Jim Clyburn of SC, which many voters cited in exit polls as the reason Biden got their vote.

Sanders opposed the measure.
