NEW YORK (Reuters) - Just days after Joe Biden’s commanding wins in most of the Super Tuesday primaries, Democrats across the country are again rallying around the former vice president as their best hope for defeating Republican President Donald Trump in November, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll.

I was never worried about the large field (other than no one could really get a message across in debates), but for all the hand-wringing over disorganization, no unity, etc., it turns out that there must have been a lot going on behind the scenes.
