Democrats see Biden, Warren as close fits ideologically, view Sanders as more extreme
Democratic voters see Joe Biden as slightly to their right, Elizabeth Warren as slightly to their left, and Bernie Sanders as more extreme, a poll finds.

I would guess that this has to do with partisan, rather than ideological, perceptions. Warren is left, BUT she is a reasonably good team player. Sanders is explicitly NOT a team player.

I think there's a lot of truth in that. She & Sanders are very diff't in message, even when similar in policy - reform vs. revolution, to boil it down. (Note also anti-Trumper Jennifer Rubin's recent praise for Warren's approach as FDR-like.)

Makes sense, because despite issue positions, is running as, "Your Father's Democratic Party" is running, as "Not Your Father's Democratic Party" is running as, "Your Father was Corrupt for Supporting the Democratic Party"

Sanders is the extreme choice so that’s at least good voters see that, hopefully people decide nominating Sanders and giving Trump a 40 seat win is a bad idea.

Most interesting to me are that independents are still closer to Trump than to Biden. This is why I think trying to win over independents with Biden is not a very good strategy. Most independents are really Trump voters. Increasing turnout among blacks and liberals is the key.

If there is an argument for Biden it's that he's strong with black voters, not that he's going to win over swing white voters.

it’ll be interesting to see if this changes after the debate, especially if biden/warren contrasts are highlighted

This is because of three words: "capitalism" and "democratic socialism".

Hilariously wrong, but good for Warren in a general election (or, bad for Biden?)

Maybe Sanders should have joined the party instead of playing “holier than thou”

How is calling for a socialist “Revolution!” extreme?

Actually Harris is an even closer ideological fit for Dems and lean Dems than Warren, but disconcertingly Independents view Trump as closer to themselves than Biden. Are Indies just masquerading Reps?

The dots from Biden to Warren are further apart than the dots from Sanders to Harris.
