Pete Buttigieg Takes Lead in Iowa for First Time in New Poll

That Bloomberg is entering the race so late - to say nothing of the possible late entry of Deval Patrick, the former MA governor and champion of foreclosure warehouse Ameriquest - exemplifies the complete lack of faith that Democratic donors have in Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, the top two moderate candidates in the race. "But I really can not imagine that Democrats in the Super Tuesday states would be significantly more receptive to him than Iowa voters", Murray said. With dismal numbers like these, it's easy to see why.

Bloomberg, who would reportedly focus on Super Tuesday states rather than New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, and Nevada, has not received a warm welcome from Sens. Less than one percent said they were leaning toward voting for Bloomberg, ranking him with candidates Marianne Williamson, John Delaney, and Michael Bennet. Gabbard is the only other candidate with a negative rating.

Bloomberg, a billionaire who served three terms as the mayor of New York City, has yet to officially declare his candidacy for the presidential race.

Bloomberg's adviser, Howard Wolfson, confirmed in a statement to Fox News that he is taking steps to enter the race because he is concerned that the current field of candidates is not well-positioned to defeat Trump.

"Based on his record of accomplishment, leadership and his ability to bring people together to drive change", Wolfson added, "Mike would be able to take the fight to Trump and win".

Buttigieg's support is notable in that he alone among the frontrunners has benefited from a major surge in support.

The party's more moderate frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, has not consolidated support as quickly as some thought he might.

"Buttigieg is emerging as a top pick for a wide variety of Iowa Democrats". Elizabeth Warren of MA with 18 percent and Sanders with 13 percent. "He is doing well with voters regardless of education or ideology". They're bankrolled in large part by wealthy executives and their relatives at companies such as AT&T, Google, Comcast, and Microsoft, and in the third quarter of this year, Buttigieg's average donation was $32 and Biden's was $44; the average donation for Sanders, who led the pack in fundraising, was a little over $18.
