There have been a number of shakeups within the 2020 presidential race, thanks in no small part to the extraordinarily large field being proffered by the Democrats.
At this stage, with well over a dozen candidates still in the race, there are only four who have been considered to be within the “top tier”: Former Vice President Joe Bide, Senators Liz Warren and Bernie Sanders, and Indianapolis Mayor Pete Buttigieg – who recently received some startling news from one of the election’s most important locales.
Pete Buttigieg has joined former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as a top candidate in Iowa, a Monmouth University Poll released Tuesday shows.
The survey, which has a margin of error of 4.6 percentage points and was conducted Nov. 7-11, is the first major poll to show Mr. Buttigieg atop the field in Iowa.
This was quite the jump for Buttigieg.
Compared with Monmouth’s August poll, Mr. Buttigieg has gained 14 points, while Mr. Biden has lost 7 points. Mr. Buttigieg has gained support across nearly every demographic group, the university’s polling institute said.
Buttigieg may be popular in Iowa, but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to find favor with Democrats interested in a potential matchup against President Trump.
Of all of the officially declared candidates, only Joe Biden has shown a promising electability rating among Democrats, thanks to his centrist ideologies and his ability to lure young voters with his connections to Barack Obama.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
