Let us know your thoughts on the 2020 race in the comments!
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
New Polling shows the battleground is and continues to be the industrial midwest:
Quinnipiac released a major set of swing state polls, showing how President Trump fares against the Democratic hopefuls.
In Pennsylvania, a state the president won in 2016 by 44,292 votes, Trump loses all head-to-head matchups:
The race tightens in Michigan, where the top contenders lead Trump, and others are effectively tied:
In Wisconsin, however, Trump is ahead of the Democratic field by between 7 and 11 points:
As Super Tuesday looms, polls show Sanders mostly in command. But first, Nevada and South Carolina:
A KLAS-TV/Emerson poll shows Senator Bernie Sanders leading the pack by 13 points in Nevada, with Buttigieg jumping out slightly ahead of Biden:
In South Carolina, a new Winthrop poll has former Vice President Joe Biden up 5 points over Sanders, with Steyer coming in a close third:
A Monmouth University poll shows Sanders out in front in California at 24%, followed by Biden (17%), Bloomberg (13%), Warren (10%), Buttigieg (9%), Steyer (5%), Klobuchar (4%) and Gabbard (2%).
Across the coast in North Carolina, Sanders leads the field by 4 points at 23%, ahead of Bloomberg (19%), Biden (16%), Warren (13%), Buttigeig (10%), Klobuchar (7%), Steyer (3%), and Gabbard (3%) in a UMass Lowell poll.
In the delegate-rich state of Texas, a UMass Lowell poll shows Sanders again outpaces the rest of the field, but by a narrower margin of 3 points. He leads at 23%, followed by Biden (20%), Bloomberg (18%), Warren (14%), Klobuchar (9%), Buttigieg (7%), and Gabbard (4%).
Finally, a UMass Lowell poll out of Minnesota unsurprisingly shows Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar out in front at 27%. She’s followed by Sanders (21%), Warren (16), Buttigieg (10%), Biden (9%), and Gabbard (4%).
Tomorrow is Nevada’s turn to caucus for the Democratic contenders. Looking ahead, here are some other key dates for you to add to your calendar.
