No doubt Bernie Sanders has managed a good sized ‘bounce’ from his only win in a small and tight New Hampshire primary….
Mike Bloomberg continues to gain in the Democratic race polling….
Without Biden wins in Nevada and South Carolina the race may just turn into what Mike Bloomberg wants….Him against Bernie Sanders….
This IS a tracking poll….
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has opened up a double-digit lead over his next closest rivals in a new national survey.
The latest Morning Consult poll finds Sanders at 29 percent support, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden at 19 percent and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 18 percent. Sanders gained 3 points in the poll after winning the New Hampshire primary this week, while Biden lost 3 points after a disastrous fifth-place showing.
The latest poll confirms Sanders’s status as the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination. In addition to winning New Hampshire, Sanders pulled more votes than anyone else at the Iowa caucuses, although it appears that former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg will narrowly win the delegates edge in the Hawkeye State.
Buttigieg finished a close second in New Hampshire and held steady in the Morning Consult survey at 11 percent support. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who finished a distant fourth place in New Hampshire, came in at 10 percent in the new poll.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), whose surprise third-place finish in New Hampshire launched her into the thick of the race, is at 5 percent support, picking up 2 points from the prior survey.
Electability is the top issue on voters’ minds and Sanders is now viewed as the best positioned to defeat President Trump, with 29 percent saying he’s most electable, followed by Bloomberg at 25….
A new St. Pete Polls survey in Florida shows Michael Bloomberg leading the Democratic primary race with 27%, followed by Joe Biden at 26%, Pete Buttigieg at 11%, Bernie Sanders at 10%, Amy Klobuchar at 9% and Elizabeth Warren at 5%….
A new University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll in Texas finds Bernie Sanders leading the Democratic presidential field with 24%, followed by Joe Biden at 22%, Elizabeth Warren at 15%: Mike Bloomberg at 10%, Pete Buttigieg at 7% and Amy Klobuchar at 3%.
In general election match ups, President Trump would beat Sanders by 47% to 45%, within the poll’s margin of error. He’d beat Biden 47% to 43%, Warren 47% to 44%, Bloomberg 46% to 41%, Buttigieg 47% to 42% and Klobuchar 46% to 41%….
