Clinton's lead over Sanders increases by 5% after Biden drops out

http://www.270towin.com/news/#.VisClLerTrc

Vice President Joe Biden's announcement that he has decided not to run in 2016 leaves us, at least for the moment, with two leading contenders for the Democratic nomination.

Biden has been polling in the 15-20% range in recent weeks. Where will that support go? We decided to take a look back at recent polls, most of which (conveniently) ask people to make a choice both ways --- if Biden is in, and if he is not.

1. That's better for Bernie than I thought it would be

A 56-30 lead for Hillary is a similar margin to the 48-21 lead she had 8 years ago, although having her over 50% is a problem.

4. The remaining Biden voters

 

don't really want Hillary, so they will need to take a closer look at Bernie and think about what kind of country -- and world -- they want to leave for their children and grandchildren.

May they choose wisely.

5. 'ALWAYS Randy' is an understatement

You have 10 OPs on GDP page 1 alone. This is heading into spam territory.

are you a Bernie supporter? ---if yes that is good ------a narrow field this early in the game is not good ---when I posted a lot in 2013 thee were quite a few Warren supporters that argued with me---they did know that i was a Warren fan------and I'd rather have Bernie than Hillary-----but the dice roll is too great for me ---at age 70 I can't take another 8 years of GOP making SCOTUS appts that suck ---thank you again for posting -
