"Biden is bacck on top of the pack...3-way race for 2nd."

That's the YAHOO title for a USA Today article that reads:
Pete Buttigieg surges to second, Joe Biden regains national lead in new poll
Savannah Behrmann, USA TODAY
USA TODAY•November 27, 2019
https://news.yahoo.com/joe-biden-regains-national-lead-010405443.html

It's a lousy poll IMHO. The figures have already been posted here, but it is an interesting take by the MSM.

Biden has been in the lead all along except for that one moment last month in the same poll.

WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden has rebounded to take the lead of the crowded field of Democratic contenders in a new national Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

The new numbers come just one month after an October 24 poll put Biden 7-points behind Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 21%.

The November poll has Biden now leading the pack at 24%, with South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg receiving 16%, up 6 points from October. Warren polled at 14%, dropping from 28% in October, and Sen. Bernie Sanders came in at 13%.

Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy said in the press release, "Biden is back on top of the pack but now there is a 3-way race for second. Buttigieg has broken into the top tier, apparently at the expense of Warren, who has taken a dive after being hammered for being too far left on health care and other issues."

Notably, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who recently announced he was entering the 2020 primary after much speculation, gained 3% in the Quinnipiac University poll, tying with Senators Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar, who have been in the race for months.

Businessman Andrew Yang, Sen. Cory Booker, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, and Sen. Michael Bennet received 2% each. 11% of likely Democratic voters were undecided, and no other candidate topped 1%.

Biden again dominated on electability with 46% viewing him as the candidate who has the best chance against President Donald Trump. This was also the most important quality for a candidate to have, according to 35% of voters.

Warren and Sanders' drop in this poll coincides with their "Medicare for All" idea receiving only a 36% positive review from voters surveyed, while 52% say it is a bad idea.

1. But if you aggregate the top two candidates on the left

 

and aggregate the top two centrist candidates then the leftists win...

Oops, never mind. That narrative just fizzled.

4. If Biden has similar numbers in Texas then he will have nearly a 200 delegate lead

 

after Super Tuesday. Add in some additional victories in southern states and it could increase to a 300 delegate lead. If that is the case, then the race is over since it will be impossible for any other candidates to catch up.

8. Biden has ALWAYS been out front. WAY out front.

 

No one else has come close.

I like a lot about VP Joe, but the impressive ENDURANCE of his very broad support and strength with the electorate is why I decided to go ahead and endorse him here. He's currently easily the most electable candidate and, so happily, also meets all my other requirements.

Countdown to February 3: 68 days.

Super Tuesday: 97 days.
