Biden’s Bombing in Iowa Allows Bernie to Take National Polling Lead

My, how the mighty have fallen.

In a Democratic primary race that has defied the political norms time and time again, it may come as no surprise to some that Joe Biden’s campaign is sinking.

The former Vice President has been the all-too-automatic frontrunner in the race from the very moment that he first stepped onstage to announce his candidacy. His close-knit relationship with former President Barack Obama was certainly a boost to his liberal credibility, despite his lengthy career as a centrist, establishment Senator with a penchant for creepy behavior toward women.

Still, the left believed that Biden would be able to topple Trump in the 2020 election, and has elevated him for weeks on this idea alone.

This may all be coming to an end, however, after the former VP took a nasty tumble in Iowa, allowing Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to slip into the national polling lead.

The Morning Consult tracking poll released Thursday shows the former vice president slipping behind Sanders, who leads the field with 25 percent support after experiencing a three-point bump. While Biden sits just one point behind with 24 percent support, that reflects a five-point drop over a three-day span. Biden had 29 percent support as of February 3.

Pete Buttigieg (D) has also experienced a bump this week, jumping into fourth place with 12 percent support — up from the seven percent support he saw on February 3.

Michael Bloomberg (D) rounded out the top tier with 15 percent support, experiencing a one-point drop this week. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) also fell two points this week, coming in fifth place with 11 percent support…

Sanders could have trouble in the general election against incumbent President Donald Trump, however, as his brand of democratic socialism is an easy target for ridicule, particularly among conservatives and moderates.
