Joe Biden in Siouxland to Promote Health Care Plan, 5:32

Biden is also up front for who California Democrats said will be the best leader (26% for Biden, 18% for Harris, 17% for Sanders, and 14% for Warren), but at a smaller margin.

Though many Republicans would go on to use Obama's pledge against him, saying his promise was hollow, at best, Biden has an earlier fight to fight before he can worry about potential GOP attack ads that could be run against him: the Democratic Party's presidential primary.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), who comes from nearby Vermont, has fallen almost 6 points since April and now sits in fifth place at 9.9 percent support in the latest survey.

He argued that some of his opponents, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, aren't fairly representing the consequences of their proposals.

Some Democratic presidential hopefuls echo Biden's approach, with a handful of them sounding alarms about moving too far left and allowing Republicans to reclaim the health care advantage Democrats enjoyed in the 2018 midterms.

Those episodes called Biden's front-runner status into question, and in New Hampshire over the weekend it was clear he wanted to turn the tables on his rivals backing Medicare for All. Biden's rivals who are running on Medicare for All, which would blow away the current system, are explicitly running on this notion.

Biden hopes his positioning as Obamacare's chief defender will be a reminder of his close work alongside former President Barack Obama, who remains popular among Democratic voters. CNN asked the state's Democrats who they believe is the most progressive, and 40 percent chose Sanders, compared with just 23 percent for Warren.

After attempting to injure himself, police say Clark took selfies lying across the dead teenager before he was taken into custody. As news of the attack reached the press, hysteria ensued and a variety of conflicting stories began to surface.

Senator Kamala Harris's support in California has surged, a new Quinnipiac University poll shows, putting her in a statistical tie with former Vice President Joe Biden among Democrats in her home state.

Justin Krebs, a campaign director with MoveOn, isn't interested in hearing pundits debate which 2020 Democratic candidate is the most "electable".

"The main point that I'm going to be making is that the struggle we are having in this country for healthcare for all-for a Medicare for all single-payer system-is really not a debate over healthcare policy", Sanders said in an interview with the New York Times ahead of his speech.

There have only been a handful of instances where candidates have truly staked out big differences in policy with their other Democratic contenders. A sudden transition to "Medicare for All", he said, "is kind of risky". "Many of them don't want to". Elizabeth Warren sits at 16%. "If you like your private insurance, you can keep it". "The Affordable Care Act was a historic achievement for President Obama", he said in the introduction video.

Biden also gets the nod for the candidate with the best chance of stopping President Trump from winning a second term.

"I think it could be a political problem", said Democratic Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, who is seeking the party's nomination and favors a public option. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard didn't register, falling from 2 percent and 1 percent, respectively. "We should be building from what we have", he said last week.

During a live-streamed discussion on Tuesday, Sanders dismissed Biden's criticisms of Medicare for All and said the nation should have "a health care debate on the facts and not on fear-mongering".
