In three days, the crowded Democratic field will once again hit the stage for another debate, and a new national poll shows that the top two Democrats are former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.
Biden has been leading since he announced his White House bid, and he is currently sitting at 24% support from Democrats and Independent voters that lean Democrats.
The NPR/PBSNewsHour/Marist poll was released today.
Sanders is close beind at 22%.
As well, with the Iowa caucuses just a month and a half away, voters indicated that they could change their mind.
Embroiled in the current impeachment process against President Trump, Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden have tried to avoid controversy as numerous calls have been made for them to testify over Hunter Biden’s time as a board member of Burisma while Vice President Biden was in office.
As it stands, both Hunter and Joe might even face questioning.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) has been a staunch critic of the two.
In a recent interview on Fox News, Rep. Gaetz commented that “Biden knows the names of foreign leaders because their names are on the deposit slips his son is filling out at the bank.”
In the hearings, Rep. Gaetz has consistently brought up Hunter Biden’s involvement with the company, and this is something that Vice President Biden has steered away from discussing while on the campaign trail.

As the next debate inches closer, Democratic hopefuls such as Senator Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who are polling in the top 5, may or may not go after the Vice President regarding these concerns.
