It’s doesn’t matter whether or not you agree with President Trump. He is right…
He’s in second place in most of the polls, but President Trump has decided his race for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 is over.
“Looks like Bernie Sanders is history. Sleepy Joe Biden is pulling ahead and think about it, I’m only here because of Sleepy Joe and the man who took him off the 1% trash heap, President O! China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!” Trump wrote Monday on Twitter.
Sanders, who had been hovering around 23% in Real Clear Politics’ (RCP) poll average, plunged to about 15% when former Vice President Joe Biden entered the race. The latest Fox News poll put Biden at 35% (up from 31% in March) and Sanders in a distant second, with 17% (down from 23%).
The latest RCP average stacks up like this:
- Joe Biden — 38.3%
- Sen. Bernie Sanders — 18.8
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren — 8.5
- Sen. Kamala Harris — 7.3
- Mayor Peter Buttigieg — 7.0
- Robert “Beto” O’Rourke — 3.8
- Sen. Cory Booker — 2.5
All the rest of the candidates are polling at less than 2%.
Polling from some key states also puts Biden at the top. In the latest Quinnipiac poll for Pennsylvania — which Trump won in a surprise in 2016 — the stack-up looks like this: Biden 39, Sanders 13, Warren 8, Harris 8, Buttigieg 6, Booker 5, O’Rourke 2. Trump is set to hold a campaign rally in the state on Monday.
A South Carolina poll puts Biden over Sanders 46-15, and in a New Hampshire poll, Biden tops Sanders 36-18.
Sanders has sought to target Trump directly. “Looks like President Trump is scared of our campaign. He should be,” the socialist from Vermont wrote on Twitter in April.
Sanders has also taken the recent debate over abortion as a cue to declare, “As president, I will not appoint anyone to the United States Supreme Court unless they are prepared to defend Roe v. Wade.”
A poll by Business Insider shows respondents think Sanders is the most liberal candidate in the Democratic field.
“Please rank the following candidates based on how politically left you perceive their politics to be, with the contender in the first (1) position being the most liberal and the contender in the highest-numbered position being the least liberal.”
Americans believe Sanders is the most liberal candidate in the Democratic field — by a wide margin.
