Elizabeth Warren is now leading the 2020 polls

Born To Slay

Sen. Elizabeth Warren now holds a slight lead in national polls of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to the polling aggregation site RealClearPolitics — the first time that she, not former Vice President Joe Biden, has led the race.

Warren’s new lead in national polls comes on the back of a Quinnipiac poll, released on Tuesday, which shows her leading the Democratic field: 29 percent ofregistered Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters said they would vote for her if the primary were held today. Former Vice President Joe Biden, now in second place, received 26 percent of the vote in the same poll. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), typically considered the other frontrunner in the race, had 16 percent.

Warren is outpacing Biden in the polls just as she’s also gaining a significant fundraising lead on the former vice president. In the third quarter of 2019, Warren raised just shy of $25 million dollars, placing her slightly behind Sanders’s fundraising total for the quarter and well ahead of Biden’s haul of only $15.2 million.

very far left support Bernie but for more moderates which is probably a greater number of people Warren is probably easier to swallow

If she has a stellar debate performance next week she could easily jump even higher.

Sanders from what I have heard as a Brit is way too close to Jeremy Corbyn in terms of socialist values and policies. He will never get elected, just like Corbyn.

Biden's past is too sketchy at this stage. Imagine what other things they could unearth about him. He is centrist however so that might give him the best chance.

Warren, from what I've seen, has great policies and would make an admirable president. It's a great success story too. But I'm not sure America will vote for a female president. Maybe the backlash against Trump's misogyny will spur on left-leaning female voters though. 

Either way it's time for a f*cking change. I'm not sure who is the most likely to win the presidency at this stage... but I think Biden or Warren are rightly the best candidates.

Hopefully Biden continues to fall and Bernie picks up his supporters. He’s got to be great in the next debate.

For about the past month or two I’ve fully expected her to win the nomination :tony: She isn’t my first choice, behind Bernie, but I definitely wouldn’t mind voting for her.

Sanders has no chance. No chance. If the UK isn't ready for socialism then the US is even less likely.

She’ll lose to Trump but you know...

Depends how the economy goes. It's not looking great for Trump, especially with the impeachment. (And yes I know he won't get impeached but it will damage his campaign.)

Its possible a woman can win... Hilary already won the popular vote by quite a margin

 

Trump was just lucky that the votes by region were divided in such a way that the electorial college gave him the Presidency

Nope. Not at all how the demographics are breaking down.

Old voters are going for Biden, wealthy white, college-educated liberals are going for Warren and working class people and young people are going for Bernie.

Polling outlets oversample elderly voters, the press has been glowing in their coverage of Warren and Sanders has either been ignored or smeared the entire cycle. That’s really it. There’s no left/moderate breakdown. The candidates’ bases of support are divided on class, race and age.

Can you and others stop with, "socialism." 

 

Bernie calls himself a democratic-socialist. His programs and policies are not socialism. His policies are not taking control of the means of production.

 

Meanwhile, let's also mention the fact that RCP cherry picks the polls that make it into the average (Emerson as an example is excluded despite the fact it is often used in media discourse [although, usually they only talk about it when Warren does well in an Emerson poll and not when Bernie does]).

Those groups also tend to have particular political opinions. Like the elderly are usually centre wing at best while very young are more likely to be left

 

breaking it down by spectrum or by age group and class like u did, i think either way gets u simmilar results 

 

the more left wing like bernie (young ones like u said)

 

Older ones like Biden (less left)
