And you’re not gonna believe who it is… Well, maybe you will. And there is no doubt he’s happier about it than just about anyone.
If Hillary Clinton were forced to leave the presidential race due to health reasons, Democrats would want Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to replace her as the party’s nominee, a new Rasmussen poll finds.
Forty-eight percent of likely Democratic voters backed Sanders in that scenario, according to the poll released Friday.
Twenty-two percent picked Vice President Biden, with 14 percent saying Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine, and 9 percent choosing someone else.
Questions about Clinton’s health intensified when she suffered a mishap in public Sunday, stumbling and struggling to enter a van outside a Sept. 11 memorial in New York City.
…. Rasmussen conducted its poll of 1,000 likely voters Sept. 14–15. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
Here’s the full text of the poll, for your reading pleasure.
Among all likely voters, it’s a closer contest. Thirty-six percent (36%) choose Sanders, 20% Biden and 14% Kaine. But 21% think the Democratic nominee should be someone else.
Hmmm, 21% aren’t happy with any of the top Democrats. That’s an interesting fact that could blow up into bigger things in the future.
