Joe Biden spoke with supporters on the campaign trail in Iowa this week; telling voters they can “keep their healthcare” if they “like it,” a common selling point in the early days of the Affordable Care Act -better known as Obamacare.
“We need choice in affordable healthcare, covered by a public option. Under my plan, if you negotiated an agreement for healthcare with your employer, if you like it, you can keep it,” said Biden.
Biden’s poll numbers have declined in recent weeks after a series of speaking gaffes and poor debate performances.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren further solidified her frontrunner status this week; topping former Vice President Joe Biden by 7% in a new national survey.
“Twenty-eight percent of Democrats and independent voters who lean Democratic say they intend to support Warren, while 21 percent say they will back former Vice President Joe Biden and 15 percent say they’ll support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.),” reports The Hill.
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg stands at fourth place with 10% support.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden slips, Senator Elizabeth Warren steadies, Senator Bernie Sanders gets his groove back, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg breaks back into double digits,” adds the Quinnipiac Poll.
