Joe Biden just got the poll results he fears above all
Joe Biden has had a commanding lead since the start of the Democrat primary elections.
But in recent days, that lead has been slipping.
And Joe Biden just got the poll results he fears above all.
The first presidential debate of the Democrat primary season was the worst day of Joe Biden’s campaign.
He was torn apart and humiliated on the debate stage.
And now it appears his bad performance could be the end of his campaign.
Following the debate, Biden fell 10 points in the polls, with Kamala Harris climbing to within five points of Biden.
Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have made steep gains after the first Democratic presidential debate, a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. shows, with former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead over the field shrinking to a narrow 5 points.
The results indicate a significant tightening in the race for the Democratic nomination.
The poll, conducted after the two-night debate, finds 22% of registered voters who are Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents backing Biden for the party’s presidential nomination, 17% Harris, 15% Warren and 14% Sen. Bernie Sanders. No one else in the 23-person field tested hits 5%.
That represents a 10-point decline in support for Biden since the last CNN poll in May, while Harris, of California, has posted a 9-point increase, and Warren, of Massachusetts, has boosted her support by 8 points. No other candidates have seen significant movement since the last poll.
While the poll seems to show that Biden is losing the support he once had in the party, it also shows just how much power the media has.
During the second night of the Democrat debates, left-wing hosts like Rachel Maddow gave clear preferential treatment to Harris, and even Elizabeth Warren.
While for most candidates the hosts strictly enforced the rules limiting time for their comments, they consistently allowed Harris and Warren to go far beyond the 30 second time limit.
Maddow practically gave Harris the floor at one point, letting her play the victim card and go on and on in a massive monologue of attacks against Biden.
So while the media bias against any Democrat isn’t as bad as it is for Trump, it is clear that the supposedly “objective” mainstream media still plays favorites in the Democrat primaries.
