Varney: Democrats remain split as Trump’s approval grows
FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on the 2020 presidential election as Bernie Sanders takes the lead among Democrats and Trump’s approval rating rises.

“But who will he face in November? Don’t know and we probably won’t know until well into the summer, but the events of the next two weeks will define the Democratic race,” Varney said.

Bloomberg will be on the ballot for the first time on Super Tuesday, Varney noted, asking how many votes $500 million can buy him.
