Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Matthews said the strategy has proven effective, adding that "Buttigieg is going to do really well" as the primary voting nears. However, the survey still shows that Biden's electability argument could still appeal to voters as he campaigns across the country and says he will beat Trump "like a drum". "I know he's gay, I know he's married to another man, I know all that". Based exclusively on these numbers, it appears that efforts to tie the Bidens to allegations of corruption in Ukraine have not only not hurt the former Vice President's political prospects, they may have helped him.
Buttigieg surged to third place in a recent Iowa poll, according to USA Today. Bernie Sanders came up with 19 and 16 per cent, respectively, with their combined total barely reaching the front-runner's. In second is Warren at 16% and Sanders at 12%. Cory A. Booker of New Jersey.
Eight candidates have qualified so far for the November 20 showdown, the cycle's sixth debate. Among debate watchers, 74% have a favorable view of Buttigieg, vs. 54% among those who followed news instead.
"Given the month that Sanders has had with his surprising heart attack, staying in third place is pretty good", Peterson said, adding that Biden is "fading pretty substantially". And that answer is the key to understanding whether or not Biden will ultimately be the party's nominee.
Biden, meanwhile, apologized for calling the impeachment inquiry into then-President Bill Clinton a "partisan lynching" after condemning President Donald Trump for calling the current inquiry a "lynching". One of the major knocks on Joe Biden among elite Democrats is that his fundraising is.quite underwhelming, especially for a (real or nominal) frontrunner. Buttigieg holds a 6-point edge, 50% to 44%.
Quinnipiac polled 1,587 self-identified registered voters from October 17 to October 21.
The poll has a credibility interval of 3.7 percentage points.
