Joe Biden still in lead but rivals seen generating more fan noise

Biden's team insists such optics are overrated as indicators of a candidate's strength. However, in SC, where Biden enjoys a large lead in current vote choice, he's also picked second by a 29% plurality of voters who don't pick him or Warren first. I think that the benefit I have is the issues that are first and foremost are issues that have been in my wheelhouse my whole career - foreign policy, the idea of rebuilding the middle class in a way that brings everyone together, dealing with the purposeful division and racism and white supremacy that this president fosters and unifying the country.

But after the 2016 campaign, enthusiasm is on the minds of Democrats. Polls show Warren gaining ground on Biden in the Democratic primary for president. In July, Biden was at 30 percent, Sanders at 19 percent and Warren at 12 percent among Democratic-leaning voters.

"This is a story of Elizabeth Warren soaring, not necessarily Joe Biden slipping", explained Anthony Salvanto, Director of CBS News Surveys and Elections. Will she work to resurrect her criticism of Biden or does she believe that Elizabeth Warren is now her intended target? Rival campaigns grumbled privately that Warren, who represents neighboring MA, was benefiting from home-field advantage. He once supported Warren but has switched allegiance to Joe Biden.

In an aggregate vote preference across early-state contests through Super Tuesday, Warren leads the pack with 26% of voters picking her as their first choice. The former vice president had 600 delegates, compared to Warren's 545. Twenty-nine percent of former Kamala Harris supporters switched to Warren, while Biden only gained 15 percent of former Harris supporters.

To be sure, the weekend convention was full of Democratic activists who are not necessarily representative of the average primary voter. They were not a significant presence at the partisan convention.

Not counting campaigns involving presidents running for reelection, three Democrats won both Iowa and New Hampshire on their way to the nomination: Jimmy Carter in 1976 (although he was actually second to "uncommitted"); Al Gore in 2000; and John F. Kerry (Mass.) in 2004. Warren's tie in Wisconsin is less than her 3-point edge in August national polls. Mombourquette admits that on some issues, like "Medicare for All", Warren is further left than where she is.

During her speech, Warren said primary voters should support who they believe in, not who is the most likely victor.

'Beating Donald Trump is the floor, it is not the ceiling, ' Cory Booker told the crowd. Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor who's also trying to maintain early momentum, is positioning himself as the face of generational change.

"Every time we've tried to play it safe with established and Washington-tenured figures, every single time we've come up short", Buttigieg told reporters after his remarks. That's why Sanders will likely take a few shots at Biden Thursday night, as he has started to do on the campaign trail. "We think we're going to win; we know it's going to be a dogfight". "Do I think it's a must-win? No".

What does Warren's rise in the polls mean for the campaign?

The New Hampshire Democratic Party's convention on Saturday will feature the largest gathering of presidential candidates appearing on the same stage in state history. The arena was at least one-third empty on Saturday even during its most crowded moments.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro said that if Democrats want to ensure Trump is defeated, "we can't do the same old thing".

The politician from DE said the following: "I can not and will not let this man be re-elected president of the United States of America".
