Heading Into Iowa, Biden and Sanders Top Latest National Poll

Heading Into Iowa, Biden and Sanders Top Latest National Poll(Bloomberg) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is holding his lead in national polling just days ahead of the Iowa caucuses, but Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is keeping the gap narrow.Biden takes the top spot in the latest Quinnipiac University national poll with 26% support among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters, up slightly from 25% in a Jan. 13 survey. Sanders rose to 21% in the latest tally, up from 19% two weeks ago and his highest tally so far in the poll. The new survey was taken between Jan. 22 to Jan. 27.“Biden’s support is holding steady — but he no longer sits comfortably at the top of the Democratic presidential pack,” said Quinnipiac analyst Mary Snow.Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was in third at 15%, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who’s spent $ 278 million on advertising since joining the race in November, placed fourth with 8%. The former mayor of New York is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had 7% support, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg had 6% and entrepreneur Andrew Yang had 3%. No other candidate got more than 1%. The sample of 827 Democratic-leaning registered voters nationwide had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.National polls aren’t particularly predictive of the eventual nominee at this point. But winning in the early states is critical to generate momentum to continue on through Super Tuesday on March 3, when populous states including California and Texas hold their primaries.This post is part of Campaign Update, our live coverage from the 2020 campaign trail.To contact the author of this story: Bill Allison in Washington at ballison14@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Jon MorganElizabeth WassermanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Biden's final Iowa drive sweeps through rival territory

Biden's final Iowa drive sweeps through rival territoryWhen U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden went to an Iowa university to campaign this week, one thing was in short supply: students who support him. Biden, 77, joked that it can be difficult to get college students to show up before 4 p.m. and, indeed, a few more young people appeared at a later campaign event at the University of Iowa. “I’m the only one that gets a significant portion of the young vote, as well as the old vote, in-between vote, black vote, Hispanic vote, all the vote,” Biden said.

With clock ticking, Democratic White House hopefuls sprint through Iowa during impeachment break

With clock ticking, Democratic White House hopefuls sprint through Iowa during impeachment breakThe leading three Democratic U.S. senators running for president barnstormed across Iowa this weekend, seeking to maximize a frenzied 36 hours before returning to Washington to resume duties as jurors in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. With barely a week to go before Iowans gather in caucuses to deliver the first verdict of the Democratic presidential race, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar flew to the state immediately after Saturday’s trial session ended early, hoping to gain ground in what has been an unsettled contest. The latest state polls have shown either Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden in the lead, with Warren and former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg, close behind.

Biden Leads USA Today/Suffolk Iowa Poll; Sanders, Buttigieg Next

Biden Leads USA Today/Suffolk Iowa Poll; Sanders, Buttigieg Next(Bloomberg) — Joe Biden leads the Democratic field in Iowa, according to a USA Today/Suffolk poll, with 25% support. Bernie Sanders was second at 19%, followed by Pete Buttigieg in third at 18%.It’s a better result for the former vice president than an NYT/Siena survey out Saturday, which showed Sanders in first and Biden trailing Buttigieg in third place. Elizabeth Warren was fourth and Amy Klobuchar fifth in both polls.Yet taken together, both surveys show a fluid Democratic field a week before Iowa caucuses. RealClearPolitics, aggregating recent surveys in Iowa, showed Biden and Sanders essentially tied ahead of the USA Today survey’s release.Under Iowa’s unique caucus system, voters’ backup plans could be decisive. If a candidate doesn’t reach 15% support in a local area, they aren’t considered viable, their votes won’t tally and supporters are encouraged to pick someone else.Yet there’s no clear indication where the supporters of lesser-polling candidates might wind up. Three quarters of those supporting a candidate outside the top five were undecided about their next choice.The USA Today/Suffolk poll surveyed 500 likely Democratic caucusgoers from Jan. 23-26, with an error margin plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.To contact the reporter on this story: Derek Wallbank in Singapore at dwallbank@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Chua Baizhen at bchua14@bloomberg.net, Steve GeimannFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
