NBC/WSJ Poll: Warren Closes Gap, Leads Biden in Enthusiasm

Per MSN, the NBC News Wall Street Journal poll out today shows Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren pulling away from the rest of the Democratic pack.

The new poll also shows Warren with a big lead in enthusiasm among Democratic voters.

Warren also leads Biden in combined 1st and 2nd choice.

Warren recently drew a crowd of 20k in a speech in NY.

Per the Hill, President Trump on Tuesday dismissed the significance of the estimated 20,000 people who showed up at a campaign rally for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in lower Manhattan this week.

Speaking to reporters during a flight from Albuquerque, N.M., to Mountain View, Calif., where the president has reelection fundraisers planned, Trump said that “anybody could do that.”

“Anybody that can’t get people standing in the middle of Manhattan in the most densely populated area of the country — anybody could do that,” Trump said. “I think more Democrats should do it. I get these crowds in areas that nobody’s ever seen crowds before. Pretty amazing.”

Politico reports former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren made steady climbs after last week’s Democratic presidential debate, while Sen. Kamala Harris has plummeted since her breakout performance in the first debate this summer, according to a poll out Tuesday.

The national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll of Democratic primary voters found that while Biden maintains a lead, climbing 5 percentage points in the past two months, Warren has also been on the rise, posting a 6-point gain since July. But Biden (31 percent) still has a 6-point lead on Warren (25 percent), with Sen. Bernie Sanders rising 1 point to 14 percent in the poll.

Harris, meanwhile, has dropped 8 points to fifth place in the field, falling behind Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., whose support remained unchanged at 7 percent.

Only three other candidates garnered more than 1 percent in the poll, which doesn’t have any ramifications on the fourth Democratic primary debate next month: Entrepreneur Andrew Yang rose 2 points to 4 percent, while Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker each doubled their support to reach 2 percent.

The survey, which took place starting the day after last week’s debate in Houston, points to Warren’s solidifying place among the top three candidates in the field, as well as a hardening gap separating the top and midtier candidates in the race.
