As Democrats seek a nominee, what qualities can they sell to Virginia’s voters? (Virginia Mercury)

Similar polling in other primary states also reflects a preference for Biden, notes Stephen Farnsworth, professor of political science and director of the Center for Leadership and Media Studies at the University of Mary Washington. It may be a preference that reflects the Democrats’ most powerful motivation of all: denying Trump re-election…“When you look at polls nationally, you see a careful calculation being made by Democratic voters,” Farnsworth said. “Democrats are terrified that Trump wins a second term. They may be voting with their heads, thinking that Biden can win the election, rather than their hearts.”
