The Democratic field is being played in Iowa this weekend, with the candidates addressing an LGBTQ presidential forum.
President Donald Trump’s shadow seems to follow the candidates, though, with Warren calling for his impeachment at the steak fry, while saying that she knows what is broken in America, and how to fix it with a grassroots movement.
Joe Biden, on the other hand, asked the crowds with purpose, to pick their heads up and remember that they are the United States of America.
Addressing the Trump initiated investigation into his family for business ties in Ukraine, Biden brought to notice the scandalous behavior of the President and visits of his lawyer – Mr. Rudy Giuliani – to Ukraine.
He said that now, Trump knows that if Biden is nominated, he will not be able to succeed to a second term.
The poll asked likely voters to specify their second choices as well. This showed that 71% of the caucus considered Warren over Biden for their second choice.
32% of the caucus admitted to voting for Sanders in 2016, but changing to Warren this year owing to her more progressive policies attracting Democrats.
