      Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are close behind, with Bernie Sanders in fourth place.

      Pete Buttigieg, whose presidential campaign has been steadily gaining ground in Iowa over recent weeks, sits narrowly atop the 2020 Democratic field in the first-in-the-nation caucus state, according to a survey.

      Monmouth University poll published Tuesday shows the South Bend, Ind., mayor is the first choice of 22 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers — outrunning all other rivals in Iowa for the party’s nomination to challenge President Donald Trump.

      Former Vice President Joe Biden ranks in second place with 19 percent support, followed closely by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts with 18 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont with 13 percent.

      Although no other candidate cracked double-digit support, 5 percent of likely caucusgoers favored Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and California Sen. Kamala Harris, billionaire activist Tom Steyer and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang each received 3 percent. The remainder of the Democratic pack achieved 2 percent support or less.

      He started out at the same town hall as Tulsi Gabbard. You can’t tell me the media doesn’t have a role in picking our candidates. Buttigieg gets all this positive press while Tulsi gets smears and treated with more disrespect like her recent appearance on The View.

      Lets look at Monmouth and see where their funding comes from.

      But as I said before, the only poll that matters is the one taken on election day.

      And little boy Re-pete is NOT going to win Iowa.

      I don’t believe this bullshit poll at all.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

        I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      Only trends give reliable info. From august poll to this, Harris has dropped and Buttigied gained significantly, telling that MSMheads have switched as programmed. Sanders has gained 5 points (up from 8%), while Biden has lost 7 points (down from 26%),

      Aloha!

      This cannot be accurate.

      Iowa is fickle because it has a caucus system. It’s very susceptible to influence from “excitement building” efforts from campaign organizations. The Buttigieg campaign obviously generated a big buzz in Iowa. Next week it could be somebody else.

      According to Monmouth, this was a “telephone only” poll, ie mostly landlines and maybe a few cellphones. Monmouth itself admits 57% of respondents are 50 and over, only 22% were 18 to 34.

      I wouldn’t worry too much about this one.

      Buttigieg’s attempt to replace Biden is working.   At least in Iowa where many people would consider Hillary too far left.

      He’ll be just another flash in the pan by the California primaries.  Probably sooner.

      Assuming Trump is still on the ballot I could see Republicans ratt fucking with Iowa knowing that Buttigieg would have zero chance in a general election.
