Biden has my support. I want someone who can start undoing trump's policies from the start. He'll have an experienced team immediately in place. Biden running with a strong progressive Dem woman would be a formidable ticket. We have never had a woman VP and being next in line would be seen by all. Americans are behind when it comes to supporting women leaders. trump does not want to run against Biden. trump needs Pennsylvania to win. Biden can win PA since it was where he was born and lived until 10. My focus is winning the Electoral College which is state by state.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:

The only poll that shows a significant drop in support is the Monmouth poll. The Velveteen Ocelot Aug 2019 #2
Oh you caught that, too? DrToast Aug 2019 #4
Forgot about the latest Economist/YouGov Poll perhaps? bluewater Aug 2019 #6
the data on that poll is interesting Grasswire2 Aug 2019 #8

Now the GOP is CERTAIN to imply he is senile if he is the nominee...why do people fall for Eliot Rosewater Aug 2019 #32
Do you think the GOP depends on DU for their talking points? I hate to break it to you but jalan48 Aug 2019 #34
So we bury our heads in the sand. And guess what? The fucking GOP is going to say it anyway. Autumn Aug 2019 #41
I didn't attack anyone. My opinion is Biden gldstwmn Aug 2019 #48

It's a difficult thing, and comes down to the 'gut feel' of the individual viewer. AtheistCrusader Aug 2019 #38

You do realize that this "latest" poll was taken about 10 days ago, around the same time the CNN Skya Rhen Aug 2019 #5
It was taken LATER the CNN Poll though. bluewater Aug 2019 #11
By CNN'S Harry Enten Skya Rhen Aug 2019 #14
Yes, he still remains in the lead. One poll doesn't cut it. Not my opinion but the experts at 538 Thekaspervote Aug 2019 #26
That makes sense Green Line Aug 2019 #15
Serious question. Did you write a "Kamala Harris campaign is in trouble" thread in the last two riverine Aug 2019 #13
Biden is the front runner nt. Trenzalore Aug 2019 #17
One poll not "polls". Monmouth is an outlier with a 5.7% MOE. Wrong on his age group stat too. Princetonian Aug 2019 #16
and then there's this poll here on DU. Biden +1 from 2 weeks ago. Warren has surged here. nt floppyboo Aug 2019 #23
That's true... DU is a rare group of political wonks. Doesn't represent the voting public thou Thekaspervote Aug 2019 #35
Missed that. Probably on ignore. floppyboo Aug 2019 #40
Thanks. No surprise... Princetonian Aug 2019 #36

I thought from the very beginning that this huge field would come down to Elizabeth vs Joe. paulkienitz Aug 2019 #19
It's going to be way more interesting as Sanders v. Warren! Imagine That!!! nt floppyboo Aug 2019 #25
the single Monmouth poll is an outlier as per this CNN analysis. Time (and more polls) will tell... hlthe2b Aug 2019 #20
Wishful thinking on your part and what about Sen. Warren's inabiity so far to connect with AA voters Demsrule86 Aug 2019 #21
And that's the real story: "Joe Biden Still Leads." emmaverybo Aug 2019 #22
If she can't she will share the same fate as HRC redstateblues Aug 2019 #28
Indeed SC the bellwether for the AA vote is not good at just 2% Thekaspervote Aug 2019 #43

I think that it is really too early BlueMTexpat Aug 2019 #30
You know what they say about opinions redstateblues Aug 2019 #31
the normies haven't waded in yet. the polling (all polling) will be more accurate in a month. Kurt V. Aug 2019 #33
I believe it is going to come down to Biden versus Warren for the nomination. Blue_true Aug 2019 #46
Hanging your analysis on one poll is problematic brooklynite Aug 2019 #49
