The 2020 Democrat Presidential primary degenerated into chaos.
One of the top candidates in the field thought their position was secure.
But Elizabeth Warren just got hit with this really bad news about her 2020 fortunes.
Elizabeth Warren vaulted to frontrunner status based on the strength of her poll numbers in Iowa and New Hampshire as well as her fundraising operation.
Warren held leads in the crucial early states and raised nearly 25 million dollars in the last reporting period.
Now all of that is in jeopardy.
Quinnipiac just released a poll of New Hampshire voters showing former Vice President Joe Biden leading the pack with 20 percent of the vote.
Warren trailed with 16 percent followed by former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg taking 15 percent of the vote and Bernie Sanders just behind with the support of 14 percent of New Hampshire voters.
No other candidate polled higher than six percent of the vote.
Quinnipiac Polling Director Tim Malloy released a summary of the survey’s findings which showed Biden’s lead with unaffiliated voters boosted him to the lead over Warren in a very tight race.
Independent voters, known as “undeclared voters” in New Hampshire, who are likely to vote in the Democratic primary are divided in their top choice. Biden receives 16 percent support among these voters, while Sanders and Buttigieg get 14 percent each, and Warren and Gabbard receive 10 percent each. Among registered Democrats who are likely to vote in the primary, Biden has 25 percent, Warren has 24 percent, Buttigieg receives 16 percent, and Sanders gets 14 percent.
“New Hampshire has mountains. Iowa has plains. They couldn’t be more different except for the results of the last two Quinnipiac University polls, which both show 4 candidates in the top tier. Although Biden has a slight lead in the Granite State, it’s far from rock solid, and both states are clearly still up for grabs,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
Malloy also wrote that “electability” is the number one issue for voters, and Biden dominates on this question.
“Perceived electability is helping Biden, as he leads the primary with 31 percent of the vote among those who say that electability is the most important candidate quality to them. Warren gets 20 percent of these ‘electability’ voters, while Buttigieg receives 19 percent, and Sanders gets 6 percent,” Malloy explained.
For Warren to win the nomination, she needs to eat into Biden’s lead with voters that put beating Donald Trump above all else.
The Massachusetts Senator did herself no favors on that front with a blatantly dishonest plan to pay for her $20 trillion-dollar socialist government health care takeover scheme.
Warren contorted herself to avoid admitting that her plan to pay for a government takeover of health care would raise taxes on middle class Americans by claiming amnesty for illegal aliens, and a constitutionally dubious wealth tax scheme would fund the program.
Few people bought the snake oil Warren peddled and her campaign suffered its first barrage of sustained negative media coverage.
Warren’s bungled rollout for her socialized medicine scheme and this new poll out of New Hampshire suggest her campaign plateaued or is even losing altitude.
