Every Democrat from Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi on down has ousting Donald Trump as their number one goal for 2020.
With impeachment crashing and burning, the November election is the left’s last chance to boot President Trump from office.
But this brand new 2020 poll was the bad news Barack Obama and Pelosi feared the most.
The Democrat Presidential primary has seen one candidate after another surge to the top of the pack.
Former Vice President Joe Biden began the race as the unquestioned frontrunner.
But Biden began to slide during the summer as questions about his age and gaffes dragged down his campaign.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg each rocketed to the top of the polls in the key early states of Iowa and New Hampshire before fading.
While the race was volatile, Democrat Party elites took comfort in the fact that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders’ poll numbers remained flat.
In 2016 Sanders took Hillary Clinton to the very last primary and looked to be one of the frontrunners in 2020.
But Sanders never took off as voters kicked the tires on fresher candidates.
Sanders’ plans to spend $60 trillion dollars on socialist programs including a complete government takeover of healthcare rendered him unelectable in a general election.
Early to mid-January saw Biden regain his footing as the frontrunner and leading in the national polls as well as – most crucially – in Iowa.
Biden languished in third or fourth place in Iowa polls but suddenly surged to the lead.
Democrat bigwigs breathed a sigh of relief as a Biden win in Iowa would set the former Vice President up for decisive wins in Nevada and South Carolina which would essentially end the Democrat primary before it began.
Unfortunately for the Democrat Party, establishment voters don’t tune into a race until the last ten days or so.
And once that happened Sanders began to surge.
Multiple national polls showed him within just a couple of points of Biden.
A new poll out of New Hampshire showed Sanders doubling his support in a month and leading the field with 29 percent of the vote.
Those results were easy to dismiss because of Sanders’ preexisting national base leftover from 2016 and his expected strength in New Hampshire due to representing the neighboring state of Vermont.
But what sent shockwave across the political world was a New York Times/Siena poll showing Sanders leading the field with 25 percent of the vote, which was outside the poll’s margin of error.
The strength of Sanders’ position became apparent when the New York Times tested how the race would shake out if all the candidates didn’t reach the 15 percent viability threshold on caucus night.
The poll found Sanders’ support increased to 30 percent and Sanders maintained his seven-point lead.
Sanders is peaking at right around the right time.
And national Democrats are beginning to panic because Sanders polls well in New Hampshire and Iowa.
President Trump would love to run against Bernie Sanders.
Sanders’ socialist policy agenda would help keep skeptical suburban voters in the President’s column.
And that could be enough for the President to secure re-election.
