'Morning Joe' Panel: Social Media's Impact On Voters' 2020 Presidential Picks


John Della Volpe, the pollster for RealClear Opinion Research and director of polling at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics, and Jim Messina, the campaign manager for President Obama's successful 2012 re-election campaign, join MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss a new poll showing the impact of social media on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

"In every poll that I've seen, whether statewide polls or national polls, Joe Biden has an advantage of 5, 6, or 7 points," Della Volpe explained. "Among those who are very active on social media, [Biden] is down by 7. Among those who are less active on social media he is up by 7."

"When I get off of Twitter and go outside to America, I hear Republicans who care about climate change and I hear Democrats who believe that healthcare is a right but they're just not sure that we shouldn't have insurance companies, and they're concerned about their own personal situation," Della Volpe also said. "There's a lot more gray out there in America than what the 'blue checkmark' or black-and-white version of Twitter might indicate."
