Elizabeth Warren Leads Joe Biden in New Poll of First 18 Primary States :: Politics :: Features :: Elizabeth Warren :: Paste

And while the poll showed Democrats still have questions about the candidates, one thing is clear: they want someone who can beat President Donald Trump.

Democrats whose first choice is not one of the top three contenders are more enthusiastic about Warren than they are about Biden or Sanders. Twenty-nine percent of people who were backing Harris in July have switched to the Massachusetts Democrat.

Voters of Indian descent are likeliest by far to support Mr. Biden, AAPI Victory Fund said in a statement on Wednesday.

This week's Democratic debate brings 10 presidential hopefuls to the stage after two previous debates on CNN and NBC.

With several candidates running for president, Democrats fear "an internal bloodbath", said Lee Miringoff, who directs the Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

"Warren can simply assert her position in the race, which is 'Just getting rid of Trump is not enough, we need big changes, ' " said Steve Murphy, a Democratic strategist who has worked on Democratic presidential campaigns since the 1970s.

As election day draws closer, Trump's stagnant approval ratings suggest he has maintained his base and little else with 41 percent of Americans saying they think he has performed well as president - a number that has moved marginally since he took office, according to Marist polling data.

The survey of 542 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents was taken from September 5-8 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points.

Throughout the year, Sanders and Warren have been vying to lead the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, both battling it out on policy proposals on everything from erasing student debt to criminal justice reform.

In a sign of the different political currents coursing through the party, the moderate Biden will take centre stage sandwiched between the prominent progressives Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic socialist who launched the universal health care approach known as Medicare for All.

Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) said on Wednesday the United States commitment to Israel was "as strong as ever" despite American overtures.

The confab, held on Saturday in Manchester, attracted 19 of the 20 remaining candidates in the nomination race. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. She explained her proposed tax on the ultra-rich, which she plans to use to pay for all those things.

A new Washington Post-ABC poll suggests that those fears, if they still exist, won't cow a majority of Democrats when picking their nominee. A large-scale university study of mostly Americans (but also a minority of participants in Europe) found that 40 percent concurred with the statement, "When it comes to our political and social institutions, I can not help thinking 'just let them all burn, '" and the same percentage agreed that those institutions just needed to be torn down and restarted from scratch.
