In the United States, if one political party is doing well, it tends to publish polls that say so. And according to CNN, the Democratic party is publishing an awful lot of polls these days. Democratic and liberal aligned groups have put out 17 House polls taken in April or later. However, Republican-aligned groups have put out zip, zilch, nada. Zero. That's a very bad ratio for Republicans. It hasn't always been that way, though.
Joe Biden has not selected a vice president for his 2020 campaign. He pledged to chose a woman for his ticket. Elizabeth Warren is campaigning hard to be Biden's running mate.

Polls taken around Independence Day in an election year tend to be highly correlated with the November results in incumbent contests. And according to CNN, that means incumbent candidate President Donald J. Trump is in a lot of trouble.

The average live interview poll conducted over the last month also has Biden ahead by a similar 11-point margin.
In March, Bernie Sanders lost his second bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. According to the NY Times the George Floyd protests and their cultural repercussions, may have destroyed Sanders entire case for a socialist America.

Cultural battles, pro business and pro Wall Street programs have over shadowed Sanders "millionaires and billionaires are evil" narrative.
Sen. Bernie Sanders said he has “a better relationship” with Joe Biden than he had with Hillary Clinton. Sanders was the No. 2 contender in each of the last two Democratic presidential primaries. He told The New Yorker he thinks he has a “stronger” and “closer” relationship with Biden. The Hill reports that Biden and Sanders have known each other for 14-years. “I think the difference now is that, between you and me, I have a better relationship with Joe Biden than I had with Hillary Clinton.
Joe Biden has officially reached the majority delegate threshold to secure the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.

Joe Biden has officially clinched the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, setting him up to meet Donald Trump for the leadership of a country beset by the coronavirus pandemic and civil unrest. Mr Biden said in a statement: “It was an honour to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates the Democratic party has ever fielded, and I am proud to say that we are going into this general election a united party.” The former vice president has been his party’s presumptive nominee since rival Bernie Sanders ended his campaign in April. But he needed to secure a sufficient number of delegates from elections this week in seven states and the District of Columbia, with a surge in mail ballots making his position official late on Friday.
