The Quick Facts

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders has been showing strength with primary voters. Last week, CBS News and YouGov polls showed Sanders in a three-way tie for first place with Biden and Buttigieg in Iowa, and with a narrow lead in New Hampshire.
  • This comes as Senator Elizabeth Warren's poll numbers are falling, leading some to speculate about a possible consolidation of the left-wing of the Democratic Party.
  • Then, CNN broke a story claiming that Sanders told Warren in a private 2018 meeting that he didn't believe a woman could win against President Trump. Sanders disputes this statement, but Warren stands by the story.
  • The 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses will take place on Monday, February 3rd. The final debate before the Iowa caucus takes place on Tuesday, January 14th.
