In anticipation of the Boeing 737 Max’s return to service, airlines are considering various policies aimed at calming passengers who may be fearful of traveling on the planes, as discussed in the following article from Sputnik International. The piece cites several polls indicating consumer reluctance to ride aboard a 737 Max, including an IBD/TIPP Poll from April, which showed that 51 percent of Americans who were closely following news about the fatal plane crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia would likely avoid travel on a 737 Max plane upon the resumption of flights.
The IBD/TIPP Poll for October shows a two-way race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, as Senator Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden continue to distance themselves from the rest of the field, suggests Chris Mills Rodrigo of The Hill. As referenced in the following article, our latest poll finds Warren with a slim lead over Biden, 27 percent to 26 percent, while Senator Bernie Sanders remains a distant third, at 10 percent.
Michael Barone of the Washington Examiner observes that while Senator Elizabeth Warren has gained significant momentum in the Democratic presidential primary, largely propelled by the weaknesses of her opponents, Warren’s lack of support among key constituencies, including blacks and non-college whites, along with her far-left policies, makes her frontrunner status vulnerable. In support of his argument, Barone references the latest IBD/TIPP Poll showing a virtual tie between Senator Warren and President Donald Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup, with Warren slightly ahead, 48 percent to 46 percent.
Recent election polls indicate a tighter race for the Democratic presidential nomination, as Senator Elizabeth Warren gains ground on the long-time frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden, according to an analysis by Bruce Golding of the New York Post. Among the polls that Golding highlights is the latest IBD/TIPP Poll, which finds Warren leading Biden by one point, 27 percent to 26 percent.
In the following article, Monica Showalter of American Thinker urges skepticism over a recent Fox News Poll showing majority support for President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.

Amid Democrats’ growing focus on impeachment, President Donald Trump has made significant headway among independent voters in the October IBD/TIPP Poll, observes Jennifer Harper of The Washington Times. Our latest poll shows that, among independents, Trump trails former Vice President Joe Biden by just one percentage point in a head-to-head matchup, while the president bests both Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders.
In the following NBC News article, Ashley Pratte discusses the role of independent voters in the upcoming 2020 presidential election, noting that while the current impeachment inquiry may be taking a toll on President Trump’s standing among independents, it is uncertain whether the Democrats can secure this voting group, especially if the party continues its leftward shift. In support of her argument, Pratte references the findings of the latest IBD/TIPP Poll, which finds Trump topping far-left candidates Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders among independent voters.
The IBD/TIPP Poll is one of several recent election polls that show Senator Elizabeth Warren leading the 2020 Democratic primary field, notes Victor Reklaitis of MarketWatch.
