Joe Biden falls HARD in latest national 2020 polling

The democrats may be exuding the confidence of a party who thought long and hard about their choice to begin a so-called “formal impeachment inquiry” against President Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been collateral damage.

Of the utmost concern is the 2020 election, in which President Trump believes that a failed impeachment could actually behoove him.  Given that the Senate is still controlled by the republican party, this seems all too likely, and would make for a great feather in the cap of the incumbent come November of next year.

But doubly worrisome for the democrats is the fact that the entire impeachment scandal has renewed a national interest in the supposed scandals involving Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, and their vested business interests within Ukraine.

As Americans become ever more aware of the theories surrounding this connection, former Vice President Biden has found himself tumbling in the polls.

A new national survey shows Elizabeth Warren now sitting atop the 2020 Democratic field, further cementing her ascendancy in the party’s presidential primary after a pair of polls reported her leading in the first two primary states.

Twenty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled by Quinnipiac University said they favor Warren, according to a survey released Wednesday morning. Twenty-five percent said they prefer former Vice President Joe Biden.

Although the Massachusetts senator’s edge falls within the survey’s margin of error, Biden’s formidable lead over the rest of the field has crumbled since the last Quinnipiac national poll in August, which showed him with 32 percent support and Warren with 19 percent support.

Granted, Warren has been rising in popularity over the course of the last several weeks, but there is little doubt that the reemergence of these concerns about the conduct of Biden overseas may be having an impact on the race itself.
