Sanders Beating Biden, Warren in Nevada

The primary elections of the 2020 race are giving Americans a closer look at existing dynamics within the Democrat Party.

In Iowa, we learned that the left’s leadership has become so inept that they can’t even run a caucus, yet seek to run our citizens’ healthcare. During the New Hampshire primary, Americans also noticed that the campaigns of Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden are on a steady decline, despite what they’ve attempted to convince the rest of the country.

As the primaries play out, new polls are emerging and they’re quite telling. According to findings from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Sanders is polling at 25% in Nevada. This has him beating out not only Warren and Biden, but also other candidates like Tulsi Gabbard, Pete Buttigieg, etc. Data from the poll was released yesterday.

A Closer Look at Sanders’ Lead in Nevada

The Nevada caucus will take place one week from today on the 22nd. Whether or not Sanders maintains his lead in this state remains to be seen; however, a victory in Nevada would mark the second in a row for the socialist, in light of how he fared in New Hampshire.

Of Sanders’ current support in the state, his base in strongest amongst voters who are “very liberal” or “somewhat liberal.” In a nutshell, the socialist is dominating with radical, progressive voters, a bloc that Warren is also competing for.

The lead amongst uber-leftists is in keeping with Sanders’ overall standing with Democrats. Engendered by his extreme rhetoric and policies, the senator tends to do well with radicals in his party; moderates, however, are a different story and typically turned off by Sanders’ predilection for extremism.

A Target on His Back

Sanders’ position in Nevada classifies him as a much greater threat to other competing Democrats. Therefore, the socialist candidate shouldn’t be shocked if more attacks come his way. Candidates like Warren and Biden, who were once in the lead, but have yet to win in a single state, will eagerly seize the opportunity to boost themselves at the cost of ripping Sanders down.

When Sanders’ won the New Hampshire primary, he professed that the victory marked “the beginning of the end” for President Trump. What the socialist fails to realize is that success in a primary election and success in a general election are entirely different ballgames. The strategies in a primary can be useless in the general when candidates don’t know how to play their cards correctly.
