The big news today is a poll from the far-left CNN, which shows former Vice President Joe Biden surging to a 34 to 19 percent lead over Warren, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hanging on — heart attack and all — to third place with 16 percent support.
Granted, this is only one poll, and it is CNN, but if Biden is indeed at 34 percent nationally, that is about where a frontrunner needs to be. Thirty-five percent is considered the safe zone in a crowded race.
While I don’t have an enormous amount of faith in CNN’s polling, comparing the trends within a particular poll is always useful, and those look especially bad for America’s Favorite Fake Indian. Since June, in this same poll, Warren’s favorability number has climbed just two points, from 36 to 38 percent, but her unfavorable rating has also climbed, from 38 to 41 percent.
Most importantly, she is upside down on favorability, 38 to 41 percent, and the only top tier Democrat candidate with that problem.
