Biden, Warren top latest poll of 2020 Democratic fieldFormer Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are leading the 2020 Democratic presidential field, according to a poll released Thursday.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent.
The only other contenders who receive support from more than 1 percent of voters are South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 7 percent, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke with 2 percent and former tech executive Andrew Yang with 2 percent.
Warren reportedly fares best with self-described liberals and those aged 18 to 49, while Biden is strongest among older Democrats and African Americans.
interesting. Pretty much what was expected. Warren is providing a viable alternative to Bernie. Of all of the candidates she's running the most effective campaign. That's , as in having the most policies, being able to explain them in ways the average voter can relate to, including how she intends to pay for them. Biden is only the top dog right now because of sheer name recognition. And to say his lead is dubious is a galactic understatement. But , can she beat Trump? Who knows. Either way, that's one election I , for one, would look forward to. Warren is , after all, one of the few politicians who has survived Trump's personal attacks. Trump even bragged about taking her out. Well, turns out not so much. Not so much at all. Biden is so busy pretending to be the nominee it might actually cost him the nomination. JMO.
Also....if Bernie wasn't in the race Warren would be the front runner.
