Margaret Sullivan: “As Iowa journalist Robert Leonard talks to voters around his state, he finds himself baffled at the national portrayal of Joe Biden’s dominance in the presidential campaign. The local Democrats he encounters respect the former vice president, he told me, but many of them also feel his time has passed.”
“They’re far more excited about other candidates, five in particular: Sen. Elizabeth Warren; Pete Buttigieg; Sen. Kamala Harris; Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker.”
“So he shakes his head at the extensive coverage and commentary that depicts Biden as almost a shoo-in for a nomination that’s more than a year away.”….
Joe Biden LEADS in EVERY poll taken over the last several months….
He LEADS ALL the Democrats….
He LEADS Donald Trump….
Even Donald Trump’s internal polling has Biden ahead….
And NOIT by single digits….
Mostly by double digits….
But above we have someone in Iowa saying….
“Oh, Nobody ‘s gonna vote for Joe Biden?’
I know it’s dull….
Biden winning and all….
But THAT IS what’s going on around the country right now….
And the 2020 primary vote is less than 6 months away….
