Delaney’s message on this score has been consistent through the first two Democratic Presidential debates. On a day when markets dipped again, we’ll take a left-right mainstream media sourcing look at Delaney’s pitch to be your next president.

Real Clear Politics (RCP) shows the 2020 Democratic field as follows. Part of RCP’s claim to fame among political junkies is that they take the average of all recent polls to create a composite total.
On left-of-center MSNBC this morning, John Delaney made the following pitch.
There are similarities between that longer video interview above, and the more focused one with right-of-center Fox News. RCP provides this transcript of the Fox News video.
JON SCOTT, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: Well, John Delaney is one of Biden’s rivals for the Democratic nomination. He is also a former Maryland Congressman and businessman. He joins us here in our studio. Congressman, thanks very much for being with us. What do you —
JOHN DELANEY, FORMER U.S. REP. FOR MARYLAND (D): Thanks for having me.
SCOTT: What do you think of what Jill Biden has to say? She says others might have better policy provisions but her husband is the electable one.
DELANEY: I think electability is key, and I think it’s clear that a more moderate candidate is what we need to beat Donald Trump. We have to win the center and win independent voters to beat Donald Trump. And a more moderate candidate like myself is the — are the people to do that. But we also need a candidate with new ideas.
The American people are really looking for a new vision, particularly an economic vision, as to how we create an economy that works for all Americans. And we fundamentally can’t be running on business as usual.
We have to be running on this notion of building a big tent (ph) Democratic Party, winning the center, and have economic ideas that are exciting but are also real solutions where we tell the American people how they’re going to happen, how we’re going to pay for them and how we’re going to get them done.
SCOTT: But —
DELANEY: We can’t have these impossible promises that some of the people on the left are running on. We need new ideas, real solutions, and we need a moderate candidate to beat Donald Trump.
SCOTT: OK, but it seems to be a year in which promising things like Medicare for all is what is exciting the Democratic faithful out there.
DELANEY: Well, it’s exciting some of the Democratic base but I think as we’re having more of a conversation about Medicare for all, which I started and I have led, I think most people are realizing it’s terrible policy and it’s also terrible politics.
So I believe if we put someone on the top of the ticket who’s running on Medicare for all, we’re going to lose to Donald Trump.
I don’t think we’ll ultimately do that because I think the Democratic Party is starting to figure out that if you go to half the American people and tell them that their private health insurance is going to be illegal, that that’s not a god way to win the center, win independents, and beat Donald Trump.
SCOTT: We have a — you have been in the race longer than anybody else. You were the first candidate to announce. We have a graphic of the candidates who so far have qualified to be on stage at the next debate, and you’re not among them. Why?
DELANEY: Well, we feel confident that we’re going to make either the third or the fourth debate. And that’s what we’re working towards. I mean right now I think the race is still very early. They’re not casting votes in Iowa, which is the first caucus state, obviously, for about six months.
And I think most voters are just starting to dial into this race. About five or six candidates are getting all the attention, Vice President Biden and a few others who are running very far to the left.
I think Democratic primary voters are just starting to focus on this race. And we think it’s early and we think we’ll be in either the third or the fourth debate.
SCOTT: So, you’re not at all —
DELANEY: And we had a good performance in the first two.
SCOTT: You’re not at all disheartened by your standing in the —
SCOTT: — polls right now?
DELANEY: No. Listen, the only poll that really matters is what happens on the ground in Iowa. And I’ve been to all 99 counties in Iowa. No one has campaigned harder than I have in Iowa.
And I just think what people are thinking in the early states, Iowa, New Hampshire, is very different than what’s kind of going on in what I call the social media primary, where there’s just this kind of competition to see who can put out more extreme ideas, more impossible promises, more fairy-tale economics.
But in reality I think what most Democrats are looking for is someone who can really solve problems. They know that’s what this country needs and they know that’s how we beat Donald Trump. So I just think this whole thing is early. There’s dozen — there’s two dozen candidates running. So it’s a little hard for voters to sort it all out.
But this is what’s going to happen. The field’s going to get smaller. The people who are campaigning hard on the ground in the early states and have a message that can kind of appeal to a lot of voters win the center. That’s who the Democratic Party’s going to be looking for and that’s who I am. ##
It is worth noting that President Donald J. Trump has been ragging on Fox News recently for their polling. Several Fox team members have vigorously defended their polling practices, which have tilted toward Democrats in head-to-head matchups with the 45th president.
Zogby has come out with polling that shows the President Trump with an edge over his Democratic rivals, but that poll at this time is deemed by some to be an outlier.
The following is an extended quote from Zogby.
President “…Trump’s support with his base has increased drastically; Nearly half of Hispanics approve of Trump…”
“Overall, a slim majority (51%–27% strongly and 24% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump’s job as president, while 47% disapprove-37% strongly and 10% somewhat disapprove; only 2% were not sure.
President Trump continues to score well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (46% approve/50% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (44% approve/53% disapprove). Usually, Trump does best with voters over 50, but in our latest poll, he is receiving solid support from voters under 50–a majority of Generation X voters aged 30-49 approved of Trump’s job as president (51% approve/49% disapprove).
The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (52% approve/47% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (52% approve/46% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+ and 70+ , Trump’s job approval rebounded (57% approve/42% disapprove and 62% approve/38% disapprove, respectively). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/41% disapprove) and he continued to improve his support with all women (44% approve/53% disapprove).
When it came to the political party of respondents, 79% of Democrats disapproved of Trump, while 21% approved of Trump. An overwhelming number of Republicans approved (86% approve/13% disapprove), while Independents were more balanced in their impression of Trump’s job performance (45% approve/50% disapprove). The president’s numbers continue to improve with Independents, which a few months ago his approval rating was in the 30’s.
Race also played a factor in Trump’s job approval rating. Hispanics, this time around, were much more likely to approve of his job performance (49% approve/51% disapprove), while the president also saw his numbers jump with African Americans. This was his second straight poll with over a quarter support from African Americans (28% approve/70% disapprove). If Trump wins half of Hispanics and a quarter of African Americans in 2020, Democrats will be in trouble!”
