Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
A new poll shows Former Vice President Joe Biden narrowly in front of Senator Bernie Sanders in South Carolina.
The South Carolina Primary is this Saturday, and a new NBC News/Marist poll has Biden narrowly edging Sanders by 4 points: 27% to 23% support, respectively. Sanders is followed by Tom Steyer (15%), who has spent over $20 million on TV ads in the state, while former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (9%), Senator Elizabeth Warren (8%), Senator Amy Klobuchar (5%), and Representative Tulsi Gabbard (3%) round out the field.
Among African American likely voters, who make up 60% of the Democratic primary electorate, Biden leads the pack with 35% support, followed by Sanders (20%), Steyer (19%), Warren (7%), Buttigieg (4%), and Klobuchar (2%).
We’ll have a chance to see the candidates on the debate stage tonight in Charleston, SC, where Biden, Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, Steyer, and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg return to the stage. The Future Majority team will be tracking how the candidates stand on the issues.
