The latest Quinnipiac University survey of Iowa underscores the up-for-grabs nature of the race, finding a three-way statistical tie for first place, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) at 20 percent, followed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 19 percent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at 17 percent and former Vice President Joe Biden at 15 percent.
In Friday’s poll, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the support of 22%, with a tight cluster of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (19%), South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (18%) and Former Vice President Joe Biden (17%) all within striking distance of Warren.
The 2020 presidential election is now less than a year away. A new poll released over the weekend shows the top Democratic candidates bunched up in the key state of Iowa. Ed O’Keefe reports.
The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.
In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.
Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses are now just more than six months away. The traditionally liberal voters at the caucuses would seem to be a fertile audience for Warren and Sanders, the two leading progressives in the race. But polls suggest Biden is in the running in Iowa, as is Harris, who has sought to appeal to both centrists and progressives with her campaign so far.
Rallying McDonald’s workers in the same way he worked alongside Disney and Amazon employees in their fight for fair wages and union representation, Sen. Bernie Sanders marched alongside workers at a rally Sunday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Iowa voters won’t caucus until February, but the gathering at the Cedar Rapids convention center took place during a critical period of the primary. It’s the first major cattle call in Iowa, and the party’s first debates and a key fundraising deadline are weeks away.
Each candidate was given just minutes to speak, making it difficult to differentiate themselves.

Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden is missing a crucial campaign event in Iowa, as a new poll shows his lead slipping after a bad week for the former vice president.
As almost all of the 20 or so Democratic 2020 candidates prepared to speak at the Iowa Democratic Party’s annual summer fundraiser, the 76-year-old said he was unable to attend because of family reasons, but will visit the state later in the week.
Twenty-four percent of Iowa’s likely Democratic caucusgoers say former vice president Biden is their first choice for president. Sanders, a Vermont senator, is the first choice for 16% of poll respondents, while Warren, a Massachusetts senator, and Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, are at 15% and 14% respectively.
And if the tone of last weekend’s party convention in California is any indication, the speakers can also be expected to use their time to swipe at the frontrunners — either hitting Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from the right, or jabbing former Vice President Joe Biden from the left. The shindig will also present yet another opportunity for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the rising progressive from Massachusetts, to highlight her message — which went over so well out west — and entrench herself among the top tier of contestants.
Senator Bernie Sanders is unveiling his first slate of key endorsements from Iowa progressive leaders today. Among them are some local elected officials and party leaders who were first mobilized to activism from Sanders’ previous presidential run, including LULAC State Director Nick Salazar, Dubuque City Councilwoman Kate Larson, and IDP Central Committee Member Emma Schmit.
An Iowa Starting Line/Change Research poll released on Monday shows Biden and Sanders each receiving 24 percent support among likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa.
They’re trailed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who received 14 percent of the vote, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who came in fourth with 12 percent, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) who also had double figures at 10 percent support.
Reading into the polls just a bit more, Mr Biden has more to worry about than just Mr Sanders, too.
Ms Warren stands out as the most liked candidate in the race, with a favourability rating at 78 per cent — the top in the race. She is followed by Mr Sanders, who is the next closest with 71 per cent.
