I refuse to believe Biden is polling ahead of Sanders, Gabbard, or Warren among actual people with even superficial knowledge of their records. This tells me that (1) corporate media and the political consultant industry are solidly behind him; (2) that Brand D “leadership” is solidly behind him; and (3) that Brand D “leadership” is perfectly okay with losing to Twump again in 2020.

I know it seems that the polls could be wrong, but I have no proof. Just asking: Does anyone out there in cyber land have any information on the polls? They may be legitimate, but difficult to believe.

And why this over and over again by the corporate, media: " BIDEN…THE FRONT RUNNER; BIDEN…THE FRONT RUNNER."

My suspicion is that polls in general, and political polls in particular, are intended less to find out what we think, but rather more to tell us what to think.

My understanding is that Biden is doing best with those who voted for Hillary in 2016.

And look how well that turned out last time.

Sooner of Later it is bound to be revealed that Biden is really a Republican with Republican Ideals and Republican Warmongering tendencies.

He should be challenging Trump in the Republican Primaries, he does not belong in the Progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

“Wall Street” Joe Biden is a remnant of the past, now embarrassing himself, and us all, beyond redemption or wisdom.

Biden is NOT the one, never was, not even in the same league as the true leaders like Bernie Sanders and a few others who fight for truth, justice, and ideals - Biden NEVER has, only milked the system and betrayed progressives, providing nothing but that idiot vapid smile! He is a soon to be widely recognized flash-in-the-pan simpleton who will soon visibly tank as the public see the truth of those manipulated BS “polls” - fabricated by the status quo and DINO establishment that serves it - Biden is no “front-runner”, he isn’t even walking.

Those trying to foist this “centrist” DINO embarrassment on America should feel the wrath of all people paying attention - he will NOT be the Hillary of 2020!!

Certainly the MSM has not and does not assess the METHODOLOGY used by the polling company. In previous CNN polls when asked who they supported for president, people under 50 were simply not counted. Those columns were filled with “N/A.” Another trick used by I believe, Monmouth (for one example) was to ask Republicans who they would vote for in the Dem primary. There is a lot of concern about the overuse of contacting people via landline vs cell phone which skews the poll toward older voters. Those polls that do poll younger voters are based on how younger voters don’t vote as much as older voters, which is true, but in 2016 younger voters (in the Primary) voted at a higher rate than previously seen but polls in 2019 are based on what appears to be old data about the percentage of younger ppl who vote.
Another problem is to have ppl self identify as “liberal” " moderate" or “conservative”. These designations are known to not reflect what programs ppl would support like M4A or C4A or a GND so are useless in understanding what programs and what politics and which politicians ppl will support.
Here is Bernie Sanders talking about the polls being rigged with Al Sharpton.

That is also my suspicion! The American sheeple are free to think what they are told to think.

One would wonder if Trump isn’t helping to finance Biden’s campaign!

Why on earth would anyone be surprised by this latest assault on women by Biden, wealthy; white; misogynistic; hypocrite, warmonger; and groper in chief??? If this is the best the Dems can offer, I will again vote third party. I will not vote for the lesser of two evils, their both evil and not fit to lead our beleaguered country.

Oh - he has a foundation? Don’t they all. Probably funded by Saudi oligarchs - you know all about democracy and human rights. It’s the Clintons playbook and they all are in on the game. We - the people - have been set up to loose in this game and we often go along with it.

I’ll vote for Biden or Sanders or anyone in between. But never Trump.

Exactly, polling companies and the dem party know most people are followers not leaders. They know most dem voters will look at the numbers in these polls, and switch their support to whoever is leading, in hopes of beating Trump. These polls are pure dnc propaganda, period.

There was an article in Off-Guardian just a week or so ago which reported that CNN and MSNBC were using polls that excluded people under the age of 50 in order to show Biden in the lead. See: https://off-guardian.org/2019/05/15/cnn-msnbc-caught-meddling-in-us-democracy/

Promoting Biden is a corporate media manuever, just like the whole Clinton thing in 2016. The corporate oligarchy just doesn’t want us to have anything resembling social democracy in this country, and have even redefined the terms so that “socialism” or “social democracy” now means something akin to communism.

Precisely the logic that got us Trump in the first place.

Go Hillary…Oops.

Exactly my thoughts…too. But what is so egregious, is of all the 20 Democratic, candidates running for POTUS in 2020, Biden is the absolute worst!
