#Biden slumps, #Buttigieg soars, tied with #Sanders and #Warren, #Harris next in benchmark #Iowa poll thehill.com/homenews/campa…
Critical point here is that the MSM is claiming that #Sanders "came within a handful of votes" of #HillaryClinton, when he lost in a landslide of 4M votes, 1k pledged delegates (not SDs) and a dozen states.
This false narrative harms #Sanders--it's meant to highlight how badly he's doing in 2020 and prop up #Biden. But Sanders is actually doing better than in 2016. There are just more players. And Biden is being replaced by a younger centrist, #Buttigieg.
The main thing this major #Iowa poll shows is that the race is narrowing and ceilings are being hit by #Biden and #Sanders because other candidates are able to represent their same political wings, but better and fresher and with more electability.
Things we know for sure are that #Biden and #Bernie are the oldest candidates ever, the Dems need a nominee who can be an incumbent in 2024, which they cannot, and neither has been able to crack even a 40% ceiling with 100% name recognition.
The main surprise here is that #Buttigieg has so outstripped #Harris, but that may be a factor of Buttigieg's Midwest roots and Harris barely campaigning there yet. Also that no one else crests 5% but these five candidates.
Of course it's still months till the first vote and the #Iowa caucus. But what this poll shows for sure, is that the primary is way more open than the MSM's fixation on #Biden had suggested. And the debates will rock it yet again. Harris will rise from those. Guaranteed.
This poll actually makes the race far more exciting. And again: the Democrats have great candidates and plans and the #GOP has...Trump.
