Now that Sen. Bernie Sanders has suspended his campaign for the presidency, the path to the Democratic presidential nomination for Joe Biden has cleared one of its few remaining obstacles. But on the same day of such positive news for the Biden campaign, a far more serious blow had already been dealt.
A poll released by POLITICO/Morning Consult on Wednesday revealed a nation with very limited confidence in Joe Biden's ability to lead the nation through a pandemic. The poll showed that the nearly 2,000 respondents also had doubts about President Trump's real-time response to the Wuhan coronavirus but that Biden would be an even worse choice. Poll participants said they would have preferred Trump's predecessor to manage the Wuhan coronavirus response by a fairly large margin but flipped when questioned about the presumptive Democratic nominee.
