The current polling for 2020 IS Joe Biden vs Bernie Sanders….
Biden leads in in just about every poll and beats Trump also in every poll right now…
Bernie has been campaigning harder this time around…
But the guy, who isn’t a Democrat, seems to be looked at as more serious an possibly weighted down by an inability to attach hardcore Democratic voters in the primaries….
Republicans would LOVE to run against Sanders from the right…..
The men , who are close in age, are very different …..
The elder statesmen who are the two front-runners for the nomination served together in the Senate briefly. Biden was the far bigger star than Sanders on Capitol Hill.
But Sanders has been more of a liberal policy visionary, championing policies that were initially regarded by colleagues as fringe ideas. These concepts were later embraced by leading members of the Democratic caucus, such as raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and providing free college education.
Former colleagues describe Biden and Sanders as polar opposites in terms of personalities and interacting with fellow senators.
Biden, 76, is gregarious and sociable. He was always eager to work a room, strike up a friendly conversation or reassure a colleague who was feeling down. A retail politician to his core, Biden always wanted to know what was on his fellow senators’ minds.
Sanders, by contrast, was focused on policy, often so wrapped up in his thoughts that he seemed oblivious to his colleagues. He was seen as consumed by ambitious plans to fight wealth inequality and push the national debate to the left but uninterested in the personal lives of fellow senators.
“Joe and Bernie are very different people,” former Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) said with a chuckle. “Joe is very outgoing, very social.”
“Bernie is not that. Bernie has a different kind of personality. If the two of them were walking into a room together, Joe’s going to walk in with his hand out and begin meeting everybody. Bernie has a different approach,” he added….
The above line is bound to be the media herding view for the near future as Biden declares he’s running tomorrow….
The people in the bottom tier running for the nomination ARE gonna see their money and attention drop off….
Yea, even for the Democrats?
Two white guys in the 70″s….
Oh, Trump is also in that category….
