INSIDERS: Joe Biden in Serious Danger of ‘Crippling Defeat’ in Iowa Caucus

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.29.19

Democratic insiders are raising serious concerns that former Vice President Joe Biden is in danger of a “humiliating defeat” in the upcoming Iowa caucus; further damaging his perception as the frontrunner for his party’s nomination.

“With fewer than 100 days until the Feb. 3 caucuses, Biden is failing to spend the time with small groups of voters and party officials that Iowans expect and his campaign’s outreach has been largely ineffective, according to 11 senior Democrats in the state. They worry that could send Biden to a crippling loss behind Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg, who have highly organized campaigns in Iowa, said the Democrats, most of whom spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about the campaign,” reports Yahoo News.

“I think it’s fair to say if action isn’t taken soon, you’re going to find that a person who was 7 or 14 points behind Biden will be breathing down his neck or actually ahead of him,” said Kurt Meyer, chairman of the Mitchell County Democratic Party. “There’s still time because the caucuses are not on Oct. 27, but action needs to be taken.”

A humiliating defeat in Iowa would not likely end the former Vice President’s 2020 campaign, but would seriously damage his public perception going into future races.

“The baseline here is we feel really good about what we’re doing,” said Pete Kavanaugh, Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “We’re laser-focused on two things: Recruiting volunteers and precinct captains and talking to voters.”

APOCALYPSE NOW: Bernie Says ‘Climate Change’ Bigger Threat to Americans than ‘ISIS or al Qaeda’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.12.19

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders told a crowd of supporters in Iowa Sunday the changing climate poses a bigger threat to Americans than international terrorism and jihadi ideology.

“Four years ago, I came here to Iowa and I was asked, ‘What’s the major national security issue we face? ISIS or al Qaeda?’ The answer that I gave in terms of national security is climate change,” Sanders told the crowd.

Sanders continued his calls for free college and universities across the USA this week; admitting the proposal may “cost a little bit of money” but ultimately asking, “So what?”

“One of the things that we’ve got to just keep doing is thinking big and not small… There’s no reason why we don’t make these colleges and universities tuition-free. Costs a little bit of money, but so what?” Sanders told a crowd of supporters.

Sanders published a list of “rights” all Americans are entitled to “regardless of income” over the weekend; demanding “decent jobs,” free healthcare, and affordable housing for everyone living in the United States.

“Every American, regardless of income, is entitled to:

The right to a decent job that pays a living wage.
The right to quality health care.
The right to a complete education.
The right to affordable housing.
The right to a clean environment.
The right to a secure retirement,” posted Sanders on social media.

Recent polling from the key primary state of New Hampshire may spell big trouble for Joe Biden, with Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren making major gains months before voters head to the polls.

According to the latest survey from Suffolk University-Boston Globe, Biden leads the Democratic field with 21%, followed by Sanders at 17% and Warren at 14%.

That’s a 5% bump for both candidates since the second round of presidential debates.

BAD NEWS FOR BIDEN: Bernie, Warren Make Major Gains in Latest New Hampshire Poll

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.06.19

Recent polling from the key primary state of New Hampshire may spell big trouble for Joe Biden, with Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren making major gains months before voters head to the polls.

According to the latest survey from Suffolk University-Boston Globe, Biden leads the Democratic field with 21%, followed by Sanders at 17% and Warren at 14%.

That’s a 5% bump for both candidates since the second round of presidential debates.

“Sen. Kamala Harris is in fourth place at 8 percent support, followed by South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 3 percent. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) is at 1 percent support and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke registered zero percent support,” reports The Hill.

The survey comes days after another national showed Biden maintaining a healthy lead over his Democratic challengers.

“Standing in contrast to the first set of Democratic debates, this week’s matchups did little to immediately impact potential Democratic primary voters’ preferences for president,” states a new poll from Morning Consult.

“Thirty-two percent of Democratic primary voters said they still want to see former Vice President Joe Biden at the top of the party’s 2020 ticket, according to new Morning Consult polling conducted after the Tuesday and Wednesday debates in Detroit. That figure hasn’t shifted much since the end of the first round of debates, when 33 percent said Biden was their first choice,” adds the survey.

Following Biden is Bernie Sanders at 18%, Elizabeth Warren at 15%, and Kamala Harris at 10%.

“Candidates used Wednesday to attack front-runner Biden over his criminal justice record and the Obama administration’s deportation record, but their attempts to discredit the former vice president were largely unfruitful in terms of changing voters’ minds — at least in the short term. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) also used the stage to criticize Harris’ record as attorney general of California,” reports Morning Consult.
