100 thoughts on “Biden, Warren Continue Battling For National Lead Of 2020 Field | Morning Joe | MSNBC”

  • I do not buy that both warren and biden are ahead of sanders………I know of NOBODY that would even consider warren or biden….these polls are screwed to the nth degree

  • Thomas Thompson says:

    I like Joe Biden. I like Elizabeth Warren. But the Republican smear campaign against Biden has now succeeded all too well, which means Biden is too tainted to be elected. And Elizabeth Warren? She would be an excellent candidate but for the immutable fact that the last election proved beyond any doubt that the American voter is still too misogynistic ever to elect a woman. Who does that leave us with? Go Mayor Pete!

  • Soooo sick of MSNBC's framing of these corporate media polls that continue to downplay Bernie's influence in this race ! My guess is these polls are selling him about 10 points shy of where he actually sits !

  • president donald trump for 2020 , 2024 , 2028 , 2032 , america amend the constitution , i thank you in advance ……………

  • Boy, all the clips today of Morning Joe has Mika working hard for the Biden campaign. What I would like to see is Mika and Joe Scarborough just come out and admit they are pushing aside any kind of journalistic integrity and are in actual fact are endorsing Biden. I mean, really… they need to just cut to the chase and state the obvious.

  • randall casteel says:

    Yes health care should be a personal issue with doctors, but insurance companies also are dictating our healthcare by lobbying, limiting or denying coverage. Which is worse?

  • So this a whole video is about bashing people who don't have Affordable Health Care and pretty much saying that they don't deserve it. Cool cool cool cool

  • The polls I've seen put Tulsi Gabbard at or ahead of Harris and Klobuchar and Harris sinking fast, yet no mention of her, and she is gaining….strange. It's almost like they would like us to forget about Tulsi and the message she carries. Don't fall for this again.

  • MSNBC is bound and determined to lose to spanky. These two asshats helped him "win" last time and they're trying to do it again.
    Can't fix stupid.

  • kailen mitchell says:

    Like you guys can be trusted when it comes to Bernie. You are so insanely obviously biases in favor of Biden. You are owned by the same corporate donors that own Biden.

  • I've yet to see all these Biden supporters. I think most trust him just a bit more than the Orangeman, just a little bit.

  • Biden had to start taking super pac money because his wealthy donors reached the maximum amount legally allowed to be donated. Biden has no grassroots movement behind him.

  • I would like to hear what Trump is doing now. He's always committing crimes. The citizens need to know. If Trump gets off and wins, law losses

  • Why don't you people in the media ever try to inform and educate the public instead of being a feedback loop for their ignorance or Republican talking points? When you keep saying/reinforcing "people aren't going to want the government telling him what to do; they can decide better what they want" when what's being offered isn't what they want/need. And even if they find have something they like today, it an get snatched away in a heart bear tomorrow or completely morphed (fewer in network doctors, formula changes, copays, etc.) whether it's a union or individual health insurance plan! There are lots of people in this country who don't have insurance because they can't afford their half of their employer's indurance plan. It's not just the out of pocket that's gotten expensive; they can't even afford their half of the premium! So why don't you get honest and covered this thing broadly not just from the standpoint of uninformed public and self intrested republicans!!!!

  • It's just as much Fake News as when Fox pushes lies about Trump to derail impeachment as when MSNBC spouts off lies about polls (i.e. totally dismissing Bernie Sanders) in an attempt to rig the Democratic primary. If you don't want to be called the "enemy of the people" stop lying to them. Misinforming the public is a massive disservice to them.

  • Republicans found it hard to repeal and replace Obama care because they didn't have the replace part and they still don't.

  • cristian castro says:

    ‪What if this Quid Pro Quo is really a HOAX but rather a MASTERMIND HOAX by TRUMP or rather someone behind HIM (he’s not that smart) with a much bigger agenda than anyone can now even begin to imagine. ‬

  • feeling the Bern already? crooked DNC & it's media apparatus Msnbc choose not to talk about Bernie! you know what you're the kinda system that brought trum in white house un the first place.

  • Dishonest main stream media! Your biased analysis of the polls is influencing the next polls and you know it! America! Don't fall for it this time! Andrew Yang 2020 – Humanity First! Not corporate controlled media!!!

  • Go away.. Joe Biden you don't know what day it is.. You better not stick around and split the Democrat vote. Like Bernie Sanders did and left us with Trump. No more old white man.. you go Pocahontas.

  • Warren's Medicare for All plan. We need to see the numbers. Estimates place her plan somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 Trillion over 10 years. That's $5 Trillion per year. That's $5 Trillion per year OVER what the government already spends for all other spending categories. And we already have a national debt of $23 Trillion. For perspective think about this: If we tax all US Citizens, 320 MILLION people $100,000, we will raise $32 Trillion in total revenue. Even if we break that over 10 years, to reach $32 Trillion, we would need to tax every man woman and child, regardless of whether or not they are employed, $10,000 EVERY YEAR for ten years. Let those numbers sink in.
    Now, if we tax the 1% of wealthy 100% of their wealth, meaning we seize EVERYTHING they have, we can fund this for ONE YEAR, about $5 Trillion. But, to do that it means we have taken 100% EVERYTHING they have. EVERYTHING! We can only take it all once, then there is nothing left to take. We probably should talk about the implications of this. But let's say for the sake of argument that Congress allows her to seize 100% of all assets from the top 1%. Then what? You've funded medicare for All for one year. Then what?
    If we cut ALL Defense spending (nearly $800 billion), we can fund Medicare for All for TWO MONTHS.
    So let me get this straight. You want a voter like me to believe that a program which we cannot afford is going to pass a bipartisan Congress before it even gets to her desk? This is a pipe dream!

  • Can anyone expect America to be taken seriously on the world stage again after electing a criminal to be president, after all he's said and done against allies and kissing up to dictators. His creepy two faced party who will back him no matter what and say crimes aren't crimes if he commits them and 40% of the country still support him. He may not even get impeached in the Senate and get re elected. No one will take America seriously again not for a long time, the people and their president can not be trusted.

  • Exactly. Bernie is the man. #Bernie2020 #NotMeUs Fight for someone you don't know! Register to vote Democrat and make sure it is before the deadline for your state! Voter suppression is real, people!

  • A medical for all will be a miracle for the Americans people you guys are beau crate stop scaring US with corrupt politicians talking points on God lmfao

  • $50 trillion over ten years still has to be funded, Warren admits it. It has to come from somewhere. If every man, woman, and child in America (320 million people) whether they are employed or not were taxed $10,000 every single year, we are still $20 trillion short of paying for her plan. And that's just healthcare. That's not counting the rest of the revenue the govt needs to fund everything else.

  • Warrens REAL Views-Is this who u want for Pres?VOTED AGAINST-funding for DHS, against PAIN feeling fetus stop abortion (care less if painful to baby-just rip it out) DHS-no funds-let terrorist roam AGAINST border wall or EVEN having checks at Port Of Entry-against 2nd Amendment-Against Attorney General delaying weapons transfer to suspected TERRORISTS! AGAINST stop Sanctuary Cities & Protect Americans Act,AGAINST- Stop illegals re-entry ACT, (criminals welcome to walk back in!)Against National Defense funding(no weapons to stop attacks, no military advance weapons)AGAINST Federal Water Quality Act (protecting our water resources)AGAINST tax cuts & JOBS Act AGAINST restoring Americans Health Care FREEDOM ACT (You take what she shoves you or do without-you have no freedom to choose) This doesn't sound like the LIES she spewing to get votes. Doesn't want to protect America, illegals first-criminals deported welcome back! voted 2018 TOP ETHICS VIOLATOR. SHE SLAMS BIG PHARMA CO NOW BUT TOOK THOUSANDS FROM THEM UNTIL SHE WANTED TO RUN 2020 FOR HEAP BIG CHIEF FROM FRAUD NATION. SHE SAID SHE IS CHEROKEE AND GUZZLES BEER IN PODCAST- WHAT IS SHE TRYING TO SAY?

  • Obamacare is a failure. Millions still uninsured. The premiums are unaffordable unless you are completely destitute to qualify for tax credits.

  • Ah.. Americans and their healthcare. Surely this problem has never been tackled by any other country before. No need to look beyond your boarders.

  • I'm voting for change or not voting at all — which means either Warren or Sanders.  I'm not going to vote for someone (Biden) who will merely return to the status quo until the next Trump comes along, who will inevitably be worse.  If you can't in good conscience actually vote FOR something (instead of against), what the hell's the point?

  • LOL YEH THEY ARE BATTLING FOR 2nd !!! BERNIE SANDERS HAS BEEN IN THE LEAD !! MSNBC IS A BIAS BIGOTED CENSORED NEWS WANNABEE LOL MORE LIKE TABLOID REALITY ENTERTAINMENT THEN ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO news !!!

  • Americans are not ready for Elizabeth Warren’s plan.
    It might well work.
    But it sounds too much like taking Americans choices away from them.
    I think Elizabeth has lost the race.
    A pity, she would have made a brilliant president.

  • So Americans young people want a Socialist Republic or a Democratic Republic..So you want to be like the USSR was??…. We should be saying, the elected get only Medicare and we get their present health plan…After all they're the hired help. Bernie and Elizabeth and all those that fall for this BS need to rethink…NO SOCIALISTS PLEASE! Even if they try to convince you they're Democrats cause they're not…They're an entirely difference governing system.. …You don't honestly think they would give up their heath insurance do you??… What do you think Bernie would be saying if he only had medicare with his recent heart attack?…Do you think he'd be saying how great it was?… It's not that great and needs to be overhauled just for seniors and people with disabilities as it is… Keep dreaming people…There is a solution .but it's going to take people on both sides to really tackle it and it's going to effect all aspects of the health care industry including the businesses that run them…not this garbage of fake quick fixes to get elected stuff. Because that is what this is with these people…..LMAO

  • Bernie is the candidate most popular among younger voters and other groups which are difficult to poll as they are inaccessible to pollsters. I would bet these numbers reflect a sampling among older, white people.

  • I like Mike Barnicle’s measured tone and clarity.
    Willie is gentle, powerful, and coherent.
    Both Better than Joe’s over dramatic rhetoric

  • As if dealing with your private insurer is any less painful than dealing with the DMV. At least the DMV’s business model isn’t to make sure you don’t get your license.

  • This race is increasingly becoming between Warren and Bernie- Biden has consistently fallen in polls whilst warren has been surging and Sanders has done steadily well. Some polling even shows Biden in 3'rd place in Iowa – the people don't want more centrism and half measures- Healthcare is a crisis and only Medicare for all can fix it. All dems should be backing Warrens plan- you can't put a price on over 30,000 people dying a year because they can't afford healthcare.

  • I find it curious that Canada has had universal health care for over 50 years, and the Federal Income Tax is 3% lower. Go figure!

  • If it ends up being Biden vs. Trump, Trump will win, republicans will not vote to remove him from office because they're cowards and fundamentally unpatriotic, and we should be done with mainstream media and their goddamned gaslighting and contempt for average Americans.

  • Scentimental Journey says:

    Yup… MSNBC is 100% behind Biden. Warren and Saunders will always be negatively portrayed, with scare mongering Trump comparisons.

    With Biden, the rich will always get richer and the poor will always get poorer.

  • Jeremy Atkinson says:

    Every western Europe democracy has much better health care. They also have much better trained higher standard police; and they also have on average better schools. America is a joke in Europe. You're the biggest, that doesn't make you the best.

  • all this is reporting from the first quarter of the football game. past history shows that polls at this point are meaningless.
    for me it's bernie/tulsi or bernie/pete for electability. and medicare for all like the rest of the civilized world.sounds like msnbc is running scared.

  • martin jørgensen says:

    BIDEN IS DONE. This show is so dishonest. I have said it before. Joe and Friends are scared and colouring the news in such a stupid and transparent way. We are on to you.. The people have had enough.
    Medicare for all. Free tuition for all. Its easy done. Every other civilized country in the western hemisphere can do it and you are telling me the greatest nation in the world can not. Rediculous.

  • SecondLifeDesigner says:

    Leave it to MSNBC to mislead people. There are 3 people statically tide for the lead!!! If you look at the margin of error Bernie Sanders is also tied for first. Seeing how he has a much bigger base when it comes to younger voters he is probably in the lead. Why? Because a lot of these polls only call people with old fashioned "land lines". Young people have cell phones not land lines phones.

  • The bulk of Warren's M4A saving will require hospitals for work with 40% less money (The Medicare rates), that's $150B/yr. "Dreaming big" thing only works while your asleep. When you wake up, the GOP opposition in Congress is the reality you'll have to deal with and she doesn't have a plan for that.

  • Morning Joe and MSNBC get a lot of their advertising revenue from pharmaceutical and insurance companies. They are going to do what they can to create fear, uncertainty and doubt with the progressive candidates medicare for all plans.

  • I’m with BERNIE!!!! Morning Joe is pushing Biden, but Folks we just have to vote. And in the end we have to vote for who ever the nominee is. Our ULTIMATE GOAL is to vote trump out!! We must be unified in our voice to show trump we DON’T want him as our President.

  • First they vote republicans, then they stick to corporate democrats …. minds are hard to change. … they blast Fox, but they all could find a job there.

  • Mika, you're making a fool of yourself, as is the rest of MSNBC in continuing to prop up Biden.
    Warren's the front runner; deal with it. And she got there being MORE Progressive, not less. It's what we want.
    Biden's had 3 debates to show he had what it took to take on Trump and all he did was show he's flat footed and old.

  • Stop trying to choose another Hillary for the party. Seems Bernie's real influence in the election won't be recognized by MSNBC unless he drops dead on camera.

  • SecondLifeDesigner says:

    Leave it up to MSNBC to use corporate scare mongering tactics. Gee wonder how much money MSNBC gets from the health insurance agencies and big pharma in advertisements? I wonder how many on air personalities, directors and upper management who get paid millions of dollars are worried that if Bernie or Warren get in office they will be forced to pay their fair share of taxes?

  • Love you Morning Joe team, but really, you should stop talking about medicare for all. You have NO CLUE what you're talking about. Up to and until you UNDERSTAND the actual dynamics of the thing, stay silent. (No, the government does not dictate what we can do with insurances, ffs!!)
    Sincerely, a Canadian

  • What does Mika find unrealistic about the projected cost of healthcare? The current cost of 50 trillion? Or the projected single-payer cost of 30 trillion? It's not really that tough. One system is more expensive than the other. Plus, the more expensive system doesn't even cover everyone.

  • Omar Postigo-Martell says:

    Why are these idiots conducting pools? They don't mean anything when only 50-55% of the eligible electorate actually votes!

  • Mike Steele forgets that single-payer healthcare was initially proposed as a policy by Bernie Sanders. He also believes single-payer will be more expensive than multiple corporate insurance companies. That contention doesn't make mathematical sense. It sounds more like neo-liberal talking points.

  • Shane Weatherall says:

    Bernie Sanders went to Canada to find out how the Health Care for All works. The insurance companies are the money vulchers in the system. The United States is 30 years behind the rest of the G7 nations when it comes to Health Care. That is mostly because of corporate greed. You can't play politics when it comes to this. You have to bend to the will of the people and just fix it… The People Are Tired Of Being Screwed Over !

  • Wow! Everyone on Morning Joe has been drinking the corporate Kool-aid! So disingenuous about Medicare For All (read: LIES). Educate yourself about it because these people won’t. I’ve lost a lot of respect for y’all today.
