The real problem for President Trump and his would-be 2020 rivals is the loss of something even more precious and irrevocable than polling percentage points: time.
Most voters have never heard of the latest entrant in the not-at-all-crowded Democratic primary: former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who threw his hat into the ring Thursday.
With the Iowa caucuses fast approaching, Hillary Clinton is just the latest in the colorful cast of characters who seem to have surveyed the sprawling Democratic field, sensed something lacking and decided that “something” might be them.
The August poll found Pete Buttigieg at 8 percent — meaning he’s gained 14 points in Iowa over the last three months. And the new poll isn’t the only one showing a Buttigieg surge where it matters most.
After weeks of closed-door testimony, public impeachment proceedings against President Trump will begin Wednesday. But will they change public opinion?
If former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg really does run for president this time, his prospective rivals — from Biden to Trump — say they’re not worried.
Elizabeth Warren has been stalling in the polls. Sexism may be part of the problem. And attacks from her Democratic rivals — namely Joe Biden — could make that problem even harder to overcome.
Pete Buttigieg made waves with a suggestion — which he later partially retracted — that the 2020 Democratic primary contest is “getting to be a two-way” race between him and Elizabeth Warren. But opponents said Buttigieg’s remarks were presumptuous.
Will any of this year’s candidates pull an Obama at the newly named Liberty and Justice Celebration?
Is Tulsi Gabbard planning to run a third-party presidential campaign? And if she does, will it help President Trump win reelection?
Read more from Yahoo News: Turkey's President Erdogan bluffed Trump out of Syria. The problem for House Republicans isn’t lack of targets; Democrats are defending seats in roughly 30 districts that Trump won in 2016. Instead, the problem is Trump’s relative unpopularity.
It’s a tale as old as time. Struggling in the polls, a president seizes on an overseas triumph to improve his political fortunes. Will it work for Trump?
In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," former Vice President Joe Biden was pressed about his campaign's last financial filing with the FEC, which showed it has less than $9 million in cash on hand — well behind what Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have in the bank.
Sanders has actually gained ground in national polling averages since returning to the trail after his heart attack. But the math is fairly simple. The longer the left is divided between two strong candidates — Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — the less support Biden needs to remain in the lead.
With questions about the former VP's fundraising and the general election viability of the two New England senators, the Democratic establishment is looking for a new option in the primary race.
Hillary Clinton suggested the Hawaii congresswoman could help throw the race to Trump, but there are other potential third-party challengers lurking.
Reminder: There are 105 days until the Iowa caucuses and 379 days until the 2020 election. It happened to Kamala Harris during the summer.

“This is not some outlandish claim,” Clinton said in an interview this week. “This is reality.”
President Trump hasn’t just crossed the 50 percent threshold on impeachment, peaking at 50.3 percent earlier this week. He’s gotten there faster than Richard Nixon — and, for that matter, Bill Clinton, who never got there at all.
It would be hard to say if many minds were changed by the Democratic primary debate Tuesday. But it did bring some differences among the candidates into sharper focus, setting the stage for the next phase of the primary process.
A plurality of Americans now say they believe Trump's accusations are hurting Biden's prospects of becoming the Democratic nominee. Biden’s job Tuesday night is to prove them wrong. For Pete Buttigieg, it’s all about Iowa. For Bernie Sanders, his campaign hopes the debate will mark his triumphant return to the trail.
A rapid 17-point shift means a majority of Americans may soon support impeachment, or, taking margin of error into account, might already. And that’s terrible news for Trump.
The Commission on Presidential Debates on Friday announced the sites and dates for three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate during the 2020 general election.
