Trump calls Biden a 'loser' ahead of dueling Iowa speeches

Mayor de Blasio receives 0% support in latest Iowa poll as Joe Biden leads crowded Democratic field

It's 17 months until the 2020 USA presidential election, but Tuesday in Iowa might feel like voting is near, with Republican President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the leading Democrat seeking to oust him, holding rallies in the midwestern farm state.

A Des Moines Register-CNN-Mediacom poll published Saturday showed Biden favored in Iowa, followed by Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg.

Former vice president Joe Biden's decision to abandon his support for a ban on taxpayer funding of abortion may have increased his support among Democratic primary voters, according to a new poll.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, whose quiet, Midwestern approach and profile as 37-year-old Afghanistan veteran and married gay man has captured some Iowans' attention, also not so subtly challenged the idea that Mr Biden's experience made him the best party standard bearer. "I haven't seen that many flips since Sea World gave their dolphins cocaine", Trevor Noah said on Monday's Daily Show.

Biden has the support of 24 percent of Iowa Democrats in the new Iowa Poll, historically one of the most reliable surveys out there.

It was unclear where the 1 percent figure Trump cited came from.

Joe Biden ignores it at his peril.

Biden's support has dropped by nearly a third in the poll since December and his favorability rating has fallen by 10 points. "The others have much more energy", he continued, calling Biden "a dummy".

Both Trump and Biden are in Iowa Tuesday holding dueling political events. Mr Biden has been the consistent leader in most national and state polls since he first entered the race in late April.

One of the few candidates missing from last weekend's Iowa action?

Sanders is also often name-checked as one of the candidates with an extensive ground operation now in the works, and he remains the candidate closest to Biden in polling.

Biden and Trump will be competing for the same white, working-class voters in Iowa and elsewhere who helped Trump win the 2016 election. Ms Warren and Ms Harris were in third and fourth place in March, and Mr Buttigieg was largely unknown. The poll, done by Economist-YouGov, found about 27 percent of surveyed individuals said they will vote for Biden over any other Democratic nominee. The number is substantially higher, 39 percent, among all those who list another candidate as their first choice.

Nineteen candidates for the presidential nomination are due to attend the Democratic Party Hall of Fame event in Cedar Rapids.
