A recent poll shows that former Vice-President Joe Biden has taken 34% support, while Elizabeth Warren is a distant second at 15%, followed by Harris with 12%, Sanders with 11% and Buttigieg at 6%. Today these five candidates prepared for their next debate and the rivalry between Harris and Biden is likely to continue. Moderate candidates such as Beto O`Rourke, and Pete Buttigieg are looking to take a more aggressive stance and set themselves apart from the more progressive members of the runners.
There has been a lot of talk about donations to campaigns and despite a majority of candidates pledging to reject fossil fuel money, several of the candidates have also accepted contributions from oil and gas industry executives. Most of these candidates are focusing on Trump and the party thought leaders are now pushing them to focus more on policy.
Warren released a trade policy on Monday that would represent a dramatic shift from previous Democratic administrations, according to an article on ABC News, as it raises new forms of protectionism by placing strict requirements on other countries in order to be eligible to trade with the Untied States. We feel that the policy discussion is lacking in the Democratic Party and Warren and Biden seem to be the ones who are most willing to talk about it.
