A short column from New York by Herbert Bauernerbel:
The Democrat favorite Joe Biden is far ahead according to a new national survey by Quinnipiac University with 13 percentage points.
The figures point to a possible landslide victory in the 2020 elections. Virtually all other “Dems” candidates are also ahead of Trump.
But the president prefers to ignore the signals: he called the survey “nonsense”. According to the reports, however, he also doubts the survey data of his own experts.
Meanwhile the first battle in Iowa is taking place: Biden called Trump an “existential threat to America” during an appearance in the important US pre-election state. Trump immediately downgraded Biden as the “mentally weakest candidate”.
