Biden drops as Bernie climbs

Nationwide opinion polling for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries (higher candidates).svg

Above is the graph that accompanies Wikipedia’s page on the nationwide polling for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination.

As the graph shows, Joe Biden, the top line in red, peaked after his official presidential campaign announcement in late April but now is dropping, and Bernie Sanders, the second-from-the-top line in orange, dropped as Biden peaked but now is recovering (not as quickly as Biden is dropping, but still…).

If the trend continues, as I expect it to, since Biden is an incredibly weak candidate, Bernie has a very good chance of winning this thing this time.

Things should get interesting after the first set of Democratic presidential debates later this month.

Again, I expect Biden (who, much like Billary Clinton, never has been willing to do the work that a presidential candidate must do) to implode — history probably is a guide on this — and the question then will be which candidate the most Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters support as the Democratic presidential field inevitably dwindles.
