While the 2020 presidential election is a little less than two years away, talk has already heating up.
Obviously, the biggest piece of intrigue is who will be the eventual Democratic presidential nominee. While no one has officially announced their intention to run in 2020, expect a whole host of candidates to announce after the first of year or at least form exploratory committees.
Those that have routinely been mentioned as possibly launching campaigns include, but are not limited to the following: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibran and even former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Well, a recent poll looked at these potential nominees and tried to figure out who Democrats favor and here are the results:
- Someone else – 28.8%
- Beto O’Rourke – 15.6%
- Joe Biden – 14.9%
- Bernie Sanders – 13.1%
- Kamala Harris – 10%
- Elizabeth Warren – 6%
- Sherrod Brown – 2.9%
- Amy Klobuchar – 2.8%
- Michael Bloomberg – 2.7%
- Cory Booker – 2.6%
Now, while it is still extremely early, this poll is still rather telling, mainly that no one is really the front runner. Democrats are still open to easily changing their minds, I mean more than a 1/4 want an entire different candidate.
