This article starts out with the main news which is that Joe Biden would be ahead of the other democratic hopefuls if he did decide to run for president. This was the main news of the story and is giving the readers of MSNBC new information.

The article continues to talk about the current standings of the Democrats as well as the current polls for the Republicans as well. This was good backgrounding, especially if a reader was unaware of the current polls.

Although this articles are based off of polls I always tend to question the legitimacy of the polls. Polls can be asked in different ways to attempt to generate certain answers. For instance, if Hilary Clinton was making a poll about woman’s rights, a question can be asked in a certain way to be biased against another candidate.

Politics are always an interesting thing in the media because facts can be twisted, and although the polls count as evidence, this evidence can also be biased.
