As the first round of democratic debates come into view over the horizon, there have been some surprising developments on the campaign trail.
First, the sheer number of democratic candidates vying for a chance to become the next President of the United States is simply absurd. With twenty four candidates in the running for 2020 makes for a modern day political record, and has created a new set of problems for the DNC – namely, a need to whittle down the field incredibly early in the race in order to hold functioning debates that serve some sort of purpose.
In all reality, only a handful of candidates seems as though they are ready for the long haul. Former Vice President Joe Biden stands atop the list with a massive lead on any and all competitors. Recent polling also shows Biden trouncing President Trump in the general election.
Now, however, a shocking new poll shows that Biden isn’t the only one with a chance to smash Donald Trump’s chances of reelection.
A nationwide Fox News poll released Sunday shows President Donald Trump trailing former vice president Joe Biden and no fewer than four other Democratic contenders as early campaigning for the 2020 election begins to gain steam.
A separate survey of battleground states, by CBS, shows Democrats strongly favor Biden as the candidate most likely to beat Trump in next year’s elections.
The Fox poll showed Biden leading Trump by 49 percent to 39 percent among all registered voters nationwide, while Senator Bernie Sanders held nearly the same advantage over the president, at 49 percent to 40 percent.
Holding edges of 1 or 2 points over Trump — albeit within the poll’s 3-point margin of error — were Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, as well as Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana.
With well over a year to go, however, this massive glut of progressive candidates could certainly eat each other alive before facing off against the incumbent Trump.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
