As Democratic race tightens, Joe Biden says: “I’m the frontrunner”
O’Donnell asked him, “Do you still consider yourself the frontrunner?”
“I know I’m the frontrunner. Find me a national poll with a notable – a couple exceptions. The last four that have come out – but look, this is a marathon,” Biden said. “This is a marathon.”
O’Donnell pointed out the last campaign finance filing. “You have less than $9 million in the bank. Bernie Sanders has $30 – nearly $34 million in the bank. Sen. Warren has $26 million. How do you compete against that?” she asked.
“I just flat beat them,” Biden said with a laugh. He added, “We’re on a course to do extremely well. I’m not worried about being able to fund this campaign. I really am not, truly.”
In a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday,among Democratic voters and independent voters who lean Democratic, with 28% to Biden’s 21%. But a CNN poll released Wednesday showed Biden clocking in at 34%, compared to Warren at 19%.
