The latest Real Clear Politics polling average of the Democratic presidential primary shows a continuing three-way race for the nomination, with former veep Joe Biden the candidate to beat and Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren battling for the role of the “Biden alternative.” Sanders and Warren are extremely close in the RCP average, separated by just over one statistically insignificant percentage point. Sanders easily won the Democratic caucus in Colorado in 2016, but in the 2020 Super Tuesday presidential primary it’s anybody’s game according to the polls–and it’s states like ours the “Biden alternative” will be counting on.
March 3, 2020 is coming fast.
