Warren opens up 7-point lead over Biden nationally

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and California Sen.

Mr. Biden's gains have come as he's under increased scrutiny for his son Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and China while the elder Biden was vice president.

Among those voters who prefer an approach that prioritizes policies with a better chance of becoming law, 38% support Biden for the Democratic nomination, 17% Warren and just 8% Sanders.

"I wanted to give voice to the forgotten communities that have been left behind by globalization and automation, and I'm proud of this campaign because I believe we've done that", the Ohio Democrat said in a video announcing his withdrawal.

Biden, Sanders and Warren will meet later this week in SC, speaking at a public forum hosted by the Bipartisan Justice Center.

Senator Bernie Sanders received 15 percent of support.

Joe Biden's campaign is rolling back his opposition to an independent political action committee that would allow wealthy individuals and corporations to boost his 2020 Democratic presidential bid.

As of the early afternoon, the currency fell below $1.28. "In recent days there have been discussions about a potential pause". On the other hand, European Union officials appear cautiously optimistic that a deal can be drafted and approved by Thursday.


Meanwhile, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the only democratic candidate with integrity, remains completely ignored.

Twenty-one per cent of the respondents said that their second choice would be Warren if their top candidate were to drop out. Booker's favorability rating is 80% among those who watched, vs. 55% among those who followed coverage, and Klobuchar's favorability stands at 56% among watchers vs. 36% among those who followed news.

"Given the month that Sanders has had with his surprising heart attack, staying in third place is pretty good", Peterson said, adding that Biden is "fading pretty substantially". CNN's poll had Biden clocking in at 34%, compared to Warren at 19%. Fewer would feel as excited should Buttigieg become the party's nominee (27% enthusiastic).

But there is one question Biden didn't fare well in the CNN survey. Buttigieg holds a 6-point edge, 50% to 44%.

The overall margin of error for the survey is 3.7 percentage points, and is 5.8 percentage points for the Democratic sample.

The 70-year-old Warren was backed by 28 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning independent voters in a poll published Thursday by Quinnipiac University.
