Buttigieg Jumps Out to Lead in Iowa Poll

Buttigieg Jumps Out to Lead in Iowa Poll

Support for Pete Buttigieg, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and millennial mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has surged among Democrat primary voters in Iowa, according to a new poll that puts him around 10 points ahead of his nearest rivals.

Buttigieg also led Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa in a Monmouth University poll released on Tuesday. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points. His campaign has more than 100 staffers and 20 offices in the state, among the most of any candidate. Buttigieg held first place there also, yet with Warren and Biden much closer behind. It found that an approach similar to Biden's would deliver about the same level of coverage as Sanders' plan. The marketing campaign hopes to have 15 to 20 marketing campaign locations of labor open by the conclude of the 12 months, and an individual of Sanders' deputy advertising marketing campaign supervisors is based in California, highlighting the marketing campaign's focus on the objective out. In that survey, the South Bend mayor had 22 percent, trailed by Biden with 19 percent. The poll of 500 likely Democratic caucus goers has a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points and was conducted by Selzer & Co. from November 8-13.

Since June, Biden, Warren and Buttigieg have all taken turns atop the poll.

In the latest poll, 63% of Iowans said Buttigieg's views are about right.

The poll results reflect the deep split within the Democratic Party over whether it is veering too far to the left to defeat President Trump.

Charges dropped against Leafs' Matthews
The incident took on even more life because Matthews didn't tell Leafs management what happened during the off-season. We have no doubt that he has learned a valuable lesson and will grow from this experience.”.


Biden's campaign is confident that as a fixture in national Democratic politics, he has an advantage as a familiar face to most voters.

Though he did not single out any candidates directly, his remarks were seen as an implicit criticism of Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren, two of the leading candidates who are pushing policy plans once considered too liberal, like "Medicare for all", with the broader goal of "political revolution" and "big, structural change".

Christine Pelosi, chair of the party's women's caucus and the daughter of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said she thinks Warren will be hurt more than Biden by skipping the gathering because it provides a way for candidates to "strengthen their populist cred".

Political commentators said Buttigieg's numbers underscored at how fluid the race for the Ddemocratic nomination remains. "You don't have to look far to see each of these candidates being at the top of the polls and a month later they're down because that makes them the one to attack". Warren says she'll then work with Congress to pass pieces of a universal coverage proposal more gradually, with the whole thing being ready "no later than" her third year in office. "People are seeing something they like in how he presents himself and how he's trying to reach across to a broad part of the electorate". That view was reinforced by a recent study by the Urban Institute and Commonwealth Fund policy centers, which concluded that Democrats have more than one way to get to coverage for all.
