Biden Leads Dems In 2020 Race

It is never too early looking towards 2020 and Public Policy Polling has released the first post-2016 election Democratic primary poll and it shows Joe Biden with a 7% lead over Bernie Sanders for the chance to take on Donald Trump if he is still around by then.

PRESIDENT – NATIONAL – DEM PRIMARY (PPP)
Joe Biden 31%
Bernie Sanders 24%
Elizabeth Warren 16%
Cory Booker 4%
Al Franken 3%
Kirsten Gillibrand 3%
Sherrod Brown 2%
Julian Castro 0%

This poll was done December 6-7 among 400 Democratic registered voters. Looking back at a 2012 poll done by PPP for the 2016 race, they had shown Hillary Clinton dominating the Democratic field while Bernie Sanders was not even mentioned at all. On the Republican side, it showed a jumbled mess with five candidates in the teens, but like Sanders, Donald Trump was not even included. Shows what changes in just four years in politics.

Kennedy Wins in Louisiana

Republicans held their seat in Louisiana by a 225 margin, higher than the 19.7% margin Donald Trump won his election back in November in Louisiana. The results from The Associated Press can be found here.

The Democrats refusal to even compete for this seat brings up this Tweet from Barack Obama’s former Senior Adviser back in November during Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton’s attempt to force recounts of the Presidential election.
