2020 Dem Update: Biden Criticized For Comments On Segregationists; Warren Surges In Polls
Former Vice President Joe Biden was leading in the polls before he even officially entered the 2020 race, and some recent polls still show him polling higher than President Donald Trump by more than 10 points in a head-to-head match-up. But after Biden warmly recalled his past cooperation with segregationist leaders in a speech this week, some have questioned whether he is revealing himself to be too out-of-touch. At the same time, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is steadily on the rise, from single-digit poll numbers to second place behind Biden by some measures. Are we about to see significant changes in the Democratic primary field rankings, and if so, for how long?

Jim Braude was joined by Wilnelia Rivera, founder of Rivera Consulting and chief strategist for Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Philip Johnston, former head of the Massachusetts Democratic Party and a 2016 Bernie Sanders supporter.
