We ran the numbers: There are 245 news articles covering this topic. 33% (80) are left leaning, 58% (141) center, 10% (24) right leaning.

Election 2020: The Field Narrows

This week, the 2020 Democratic primary field narrowed significantly as Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts both withdrew their candidacy for the Democratic nomination. Inslee’s campaign was based predominantly on fighting climate change. In fact, his campaign released a new climate policy only six hours before he dropped out of the race. Fellow candidate Kamala Harris said that Inslee’s voice would be missed in the Democratic field.

Moulton’s candidacy was founded primarily on national security. After failing to meet the requirements to be included in the first two Demoratic primary debates and lacking significant media coverage, he decided to exit the race. Moulton did not even reach 1 percent in his polling. In an interview with the New York Times, Moulton said “I think it’s evident that this is now a three-way race between Biden, Warren and Sanders, and really it’s a debate about how far left the party should go.”
