Trump is the one with the ‘electability’ problem

Washington Post - 08-16


The latest Fox News poll has some hair-raising news for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and for Republicans. Beginning with the Democratic race, “[Joe] Biden continues to lead the nomination race with the support of 31 percent of Democratic primary voters. Next is Elizabeth Warren at 20 percent, Bernie Sanders at 10 percent, and Kamala Harris at 8 percent.” There is some bad news for other familiar names: “Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, and Andrew Yang stand at 3 percent apiece, and Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke are each at 2 percent.” (The poll goes through Aug. 13, so it does not include reaction-time following O’Rourke’s announcement that he is formally rejoining the campaign.)
