But ole’ Joe , fresh off of a bus ride thru Iowa just keeps his lead in the national polling….

An Emerson College poll released this past week found Biden 1 percentage point ahead of South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in Iowa, while a recent WBUR/Mass/NC poll Biden just a point behind Buttigieg in New Hampshire.
The newer results also put Biden in a stronger position to notch an early win or two ahead of the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday, two election days where Biden’s advantage with black voters could help him rack up a significant amount of delegates.
Good showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, his campaign says, will help him all the more in South Carolina and on Super Tuesday…..
