Biden drops in polls, another Democrat takes the lead


Democrat candidate polls are all over the place and this week Joe Biden drops down and another candidate takes the lead. This time Socialist Bernie Sanders is leading the pack on the most recent Quinnipiac University poll that came out today.

Biden was recently leading the polls, but that disaster in Iowa caused him to drop down.

The poll revealed Mr. Sanders has 25 percent of the support among Democratic primary voters. Mr. Biden came in with 17 percent and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who isn’t even participating in the first court state primaries, came in third with 15 percent.

Perhaps one reason Biden slipped so hard in Iowa is from him calling a woman a "lying dog-faced pony soldier" after she asked a tricky question. Despite it being said in jest, it might have been a turn off to many who weren't there, but simply heard about it on the news or social media.

“Biden scrambles to bounce back in frigid New Hampshire after an icy slide to 17 percent, his lowest national number,” said Tim Malloy, poll analyst for Quinnipiac University. “Is the Bloomberg camp prepping the white horse for him to ride to the rescue? Maybe not yet, but without setting foot in Iowa or New Hampshire, he is suddenly a looming shadow over the primary field.”

The survey sampled 1,519 registered voters from Feb. 5-9. It has a plus or minus margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.

It's important to remember that many of these polls are only sampling a small amount of voters. Sometimes the number is so low that you could fill a single office space with the amount of people they sample. In this poll, they only took answers from 1,519 people over the course of a four days.

Certainly no indication of how a national poll would go, but at least shows some idea of what people are thinking about the current candidates.

These polls should not be considered the best source of who will win on a national level.
