Jacqui Heinrich reports from Cleveland.

To hold a new poll in the biggest state primary next Tuesday, the former Vice-President Joe shows Biden leading Sen. Bernie Sanders to a three-to-one margin.

The former Vice President stands at 66 percent approval among likely Democratic primary voters in Florida, according to a new University of North Florida Public Opinion Research Lab survey released on Thursday. Sanders, the populist legislature of Vermont, makes his second straight White house led – stands at 22 percent.

SANDERS REMAINS IN THE RACE, BUT APPEARS TO BE A MARKER SET FOR THE EXPECTED OUTPUT

With 219 delegates pledged to win, Florida is the biggest prize for each of the four States holding primaries in the next week. The other three States, Illinois (155 delegates), Ohio (136 delegates), and Arizona (67 people).

Biden, almost left for political dead just two weeks ago, jump started his campaign with a landslide victory in South Carolina followed less than two weeks ago, three days later by sweeping victories in 10 of the 14 States that held primaries on Super Tuesday. Biden enjoyed a more crushing victories over Sanders this week, bringing his lead in the all-important race for the presidential Convention, delegates and further cementing his status as the undisputed frontrunner for the nomination.

Although Sanders was trailing in the polls, Florida will be a challenge for him because of his considerable Cuba has always been American and Venezuelan-American population sceptical of his democratic socialist views.

Sanders – who was the frontrunner in the race last month after his victory in New Hampshire primary, and his crushing defeat of the rest of the field in the Nevada-Caucasus vowed on Wednesday to stay in the Democratic presidential nomination in the race, stressed that “on Sunday, I’m really looking forward to the debate in Arizona with my friend Joe Biden.”

But the self-proclaimed democratic socialist, characteristically relaxed on his criticism of Biden to press instead of pledging, the former Vice President this weekend, the primetime showdown with a range of progressive policy issues.

But the primary calendar is ahead increasingly difficult for Sanders. In his 2016 White house bid, he lost all next Tuesday in the States, as well as Georgia, which has a primary the following week – on the possible candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
