Column: Can he survive the left-wing drift of the Democrats?

Joe Biden has led the national polls in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination since last year. He's ahead in the first three contests, also, with leads ranging from 7 points (Iowa) to 13 points (New Hampshire) to 28 points (South Carolina).

Going into tonight's Democratic debate, there was no reason to doubt Biden's status as the Democratic frontrunner.
