Sunday morning Dem analysis

Polls released today show that the Bernie surge continues.

Two NH polls have Bernie leading Biden by 9 and 5 points.

National CNN poll has Biden leading Bernie by 26 to 23. The previous CNN poll from early December had Biden leading Bernie by 30 to 20.

Finally there’s the outlier ABC/Wash Post poll which has Biden leading Bernie by 34-22. This is based on respondents who are “registered and likely to vote.” Among all poll respondents, Biden has a much narrower lead of 28 to 24. This poll could be a warning sign that Bernie isn’t doing as well as other polls might indicate, because Bernie’s strongest support comes from demographics least likely to vote: young people and Hispanics.

  1. Lion whats your opinion on the coronavirus?

    I’m a politics junkie and I stopped paying attention to these bogus impeachment hearings

    • I read an article yesterday where Axelrod said his Democrat focus group didn’t even mention the hearings until 80 minutes in. And the hearings are going on right now! Everyone knows this is all a big nothing burger that’s going nowhere.

      NEWS: Kobe Bryant just died.

  2. That last poll’s requirement makes it the most reputable.

    Registered. voted in last election and considers themselves likely to vote in the election being polled for is the gold standard for a forecast poll.

  4. Who benefits- Bloomy.

    Bloomberg needs the race to stay a hopeless mess until his states. He has bought himself into 4th place already and a no chancer like Bernie is leading coming out of South Carolina then Bloomberg will be there well position fresh face to take him on.

    By then Mayor Pete will drop out having peaked already and served his purposes

  6. It sucks that Bernie abandoned his perfectly reasonable position on immigration. Big sellout.

    I hope trump hammers him on it.

    • Bernie is an untenable clown.

      He wants the US government to take care of the entire world.

      He’s dead in the water. These fake polls aren’t going to change that. Determining “registered likely voter” is itself a polling problem.
