New 2020 Blue Wave Poll Names Democratic Frontrunner

The latest poll just came in qualifying former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg as a for Wednesday’s 2020 presidential debate stage. This will give Americans a chance to see him in action against five other Democrats/Independents. In spite of the mayor hiding behind a curtain of million-dollar ad buys, now he must worry about this..

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has opened up a double-digit lead in the Democratic nominating contest, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. In this national poll, Sanders took 31 percent of the voters, moving rapidly ahead by nine points since December.

Way down the line, Bloomberg came in with 19 percent, which was not bad considering that the former mayor has had some but not a significant amount of one-on-one action. Campaign manager for Bloomberg Kevin Sheekey noted that the poll was “evidence of a ‘groundswell’ for the candidate.”

Senator Sanders tweeted about Bloomberg lacking those essential ingredients “excitement and energy:”

‘The simple truth is that Mayor Bloomberg, with all his money, will not create the kind of excitement and energy we need to defeat Donald Trump’

Thus far, Bloomberg has spent over $300 million of his own multi-billionaire fortune on campaign ad buys.

Former Vice President Joe Biden came in third in the poll with 15 percent, but that was down nine points since two months ago:

‘We need to unite to defeat Trump in November. This type of “energy” is not going to get us there. ‘

Writer for The New Yorker Kevin Sheekey tweeted:

We’re headed to Nevada! Our campaign is seeing a groundswell of support across the country, and qualifying for the February 19 debate is the latest sign that@MikeBloomberg’s plan and ability to defeat Donald Trump is resonating with more and more Americans.’

Super Tuesday happens on March 3, 2020 and over one-third of all of the available delegates will get behind individual candidates on that day:

‘All of the top six Democrats the poll tested beat Trump in a head-to-head matchup, but Biden does best, beating Trump by 6 points and the only candidate to reach 50%.’

After Sanders, the following was the remaining candidates in decending order:

‘Next best is Bloomberg, who beats Trump by 4 points, 48% to 44%; followed by Sanders, 48% to 45%; Buttigieg and Klobuchar do the same against the incumbent president, 47% to 45%; Warren runs about even with Trump, just 1 point ahead, 47% to 46%.’

Sanders led with “those under 45, progressives, in cities and among those without college degrees.” In addition:

‘[H]e also leads with women; college graduates, including white college graduates; in the suburbs and rural areas; and is second with black voters, within the margin of error, to Biden.’

NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll interviewed 1,416 American adults between February 13 and February 16. Even with that large number of interviewees, the margin of error was still 5.4 +/- percent, which meant the error could cover a 10.8 percent arc. They were interviewed on live phone calls.
