A new Emerson Poll finds a very competitive primary shaping up for Super Tuesday 2020 in Colorado with Sen. Bernie Sanders at 26%, former VP Joe Biden at 25% and Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 20%. Sen. Kamala Harris was the only other candidate to break double digits at 13%. Colorado Senator Michael Bennet is polling at 1%. The data was collected August 16-19, n=403, +/-4.8%.


Harris has really dropped.


Joe Biden has expanded his edge over the Democratic field in a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with 29% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters saying they back the former vice president.

That’s up 7 points compared with a late June CNN survey. No other candidate has made meaningful gains over that time.

The shift returns Biden to a double-digit lead over his nearest competitors, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 15% and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 14%. Their support is largely unchanged since earlier this summer.

Aside from Biden’s increase, the only statistically meaningful change in the candidate standings is a 12-point decline in support for California Sen. Kamala Harris, who stood at 17% support in the June poll but now has the backing of 5% of potential Democratic voters. That’s similar to the level of support she had in the spring before a surge following her initial debate performance.

The weekly Morning Consult poll (Biden 31, Bernie 20, Warren 15, Harris 9, Buttigieg 5) stayed basically the same with Biden’s support down a bit.


Hide and go seek Joe seems to be working somewhat for Biden.


I dunno, his wife just made the strangest pitch for him I have ever encountered. Maybe both of the Bidens have some cognitive issues. “The other guy is better, but hold your nose and vote for Joe” is a really great testimonial.


Thank God on Harris, although she’ll still do her intended work of stealing a lot of delegates in California.




see comment above. 😜


Anecdotal obviously, but..


yes, I know a busy professional type, very well-meaning, very lefty, but not engaged, who said that to me (biden electable) and I could tell she didn’t really believe me when I said Bernie also beats Trump, because she still more or less believes the MSM. I’d be willing to bet she’s in a circle that perhaps voted for Hillary and that is still surprisingly naïve about our corporate news.

I let it go because I seem to cause more harm than good when I press my point of these days.


Now the MSM will be all “See! Sanders lost the softball game!”
