Biden and Iowa: A Barometer of What?

19 candidates, not including Joe Biden swarmed through Iowa this past weekend, looking for support among voters who will cast ballots for President in the Iowa caucus   –that’s the first-in-the-nation selection of preference for president, and it takes place even before New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. So, support there is important for any person who wants to become the next Commander-in-Chief.  But polls show that support for Biden in slipping among Iowa voters, down some five to ten percent.  And the same slippage is being seen nationally.  And most surprising, perhaps, are polls showing that the most important attribute voters are seeking in a candidate is someone who can beat Trump.  They consider that more important than a candidate that shares their values. And at this point at least, the perception among voters is that Biden is that candidate.  But will he remain the best bet as we move toward the 2020 presidential election?  That’s what On-Target’s Larry Sparano discussed today with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Sanders Gaining? –Early Polls Show Strong Support

Is Bernie Sanders already emerging as a candidate who will be a strong front runner as the 2020 campaign season gets underway?  There are a number of indications showing that he might take the lead among Democrats, even if Joe Biden gets into the race for the presidency. But what would be his chances of beating Trump? On-Target’s Larry Sparano reminds listeners that in 2016, polls showed Sanders beating Trump in a head-to-head contest. And many analysts believe he would have, if Hillary Clinton hadn’t snatched the Democratic nomination away from him through her use of Super Delegates  Here’s Larry’s assessment of it, in this exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Biden ‘Groping’ –Will it Doom a Presidential Bid?

More stories are coming out about Joe Biden’s long-rumored groping of women.  Women’s rights advocates say it’s not a matter of what men intend  –It’s a matter of how it’s perceived. But how can men figure out just what is and isn’t deemed appropriate in this day and age of hyper-sensitivity?  Here’s some thoughts from On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Two Separate Reports: Racial Graffiti/Biden’s Baggage
