Democrats Presidential Primaries: Joe Biden takes huge lead

During his appearance not The Tonight Show, Sanders vaguely answered a question from host Jimmy Fallon about whether the Vermont senator has felt pressure from the party to drop out of the 2020 race after his second straight Tuesday of disappointing primary results.

The majority of Illinois Democratic Primary Voters said that based on everything that they have seen, read, or heard about Coronavirus, they are concerned about contracting COVID-19.
