Latest Iowa Poll Shows HUGE Shakeup, with Surprising New Frontrunner in 2020 Race

The Democrats have been attacking each other with reckless abandon as the first major contest of the 2020 primaries looms just over the horizon.

In less than a month’s time, the nation’s attention will be turned toward the Hawkeye State, for the all-important Iowa caucuses.  A strong showing in Iowa can propel an otherwise mediocre candidate to stardom, but ranking near the bottom of the pack doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find yourself on skid row either.

Really, all that the Democrats are concerned with here is that their top tier doesn’t go topsy-turvy, making them look like a disorganized and disheveled mess.

In this case, they are not going to like the latest polling being conducted in Iowa.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken the lead in Iowa less than a month ahead of the February 3 caucus, a CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll released Friday revealed.

The poll, taken January 2-8, 2020, among 701 Democrat caucus-goers, found the socialist senator taking the lead in the Hawkeye State with 20 percent support, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who followed closely behind with 17 percent support.

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who was previously leading in Iowa, came in one percentage point behind Warren with 16 percent support. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) fell to fourth place with 15 percent support. The margin of error of +/- 3.7 percent indicates an extremely tight race among the top tier of candidates.

Sanders’ lead reflects a five-point jump from November’s results.

Biden’s drop to fourth is undoubtedly the most alarming news here, as the former Vice President appeared to be a shoe-in for the nomination for some time, especially due to his perceived ability to snatch up midwestern moderates…just like the folks in Iowa.

Buckle up, Democrats; it’s going to be a wild few weeks.
