Trump, Biden Hold Dueling Rallies in Iowa

Posted June 12, 2019

For voters planning to attend Democratic caucuses in Iowa, at least, the presidential field is getting clarity.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden was caucus-goers' top pick for president in the CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll.

White House correspondent Joe Johns asked Sanders to comment on The New York Times' report Monday that,"after being briefed on a devastating 17-state poll conducted by his campaign pollster, Tony Fabrizio, Mr. Trump told aides to deny that his internal polling showed him trailing Mr. Biden in numerous states he needs to win". South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg played an electric keyboard, while Sen.

The findings, importantly, mirror the limited head-to-head polling we've seen in some key early states, with Trump trailing by as much as double digits in crucial MI and Pennsylvania, and even trailing Biden in Texas (!) in another Quinnipiac poll.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders recently responded to Joe Biden's criticism of the White House as he campaigns in Iowa. "If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's ZIP code", Biden said.

The former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke and the Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar were the only other candidates to get more than 1% support among likely caucus participants. And a new poll just made their job much more hard.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa- President Donald Trump is going to be talking about lifting restriction on ethanol in the city Tuesday, June 11.

One prominent absence was Biden, who leads in just about every national poll.

Sanders is also often name-checked as one of the candidates with an extensive ground operation now in the works, and he remains the candidate closest to Biden in polling.

Sanders, who trails only Biden in the polls, described a "well-intentioned" candidate pursuing "a middle-ground strategy that antagonizes no one, that stands up to nobody and that changes nothing". The increased standing for both Warren and Buttigieg suggested a growing level of support for their candidacies. The poll, done by Economist-YouGov, found about 27 percent of surveyed individuals said they will vote for Biden over any other Democratic nominee. Results are reported among first choice and those who lean towards a candidate.

The Iowa poll was released on the eve of the biggest gathering of the Democratic race so far, an Iowa state party dinner in Cedar Rapids that will feature five-minute speeches by 19 Democratic candidates.
