Democrats have spent the last decade calling Republicans the party of ‘old white men’ which is unfair and untrue. It’s especially funny now, though. According to a recent poll, Democrats favor Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders for their presidential nominee in 2020.

Poll: Dems favor Biden, Sanders for 2020 nomination
Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders lead the field of potential Democratic party presidential candidates in 2020, a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday shows.
When Democratic voters are asked to pick from a field of nine Democratic candidates, 31 percent pick the vice president and 24 percent favor the Vermont senator to be the Democratic nominee.
On the other hand, the PPP survey also found that Democratic voters want a younger candidate who hasn’t run for president before. Sanders and Biden are both in their in their 70’s and have run for the White House before.
Another 16 percent of poll respondents said they would vote for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) if she ran while 14 percent are undecided.
Other candidates mentioned have low support.
In 2020, both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will be nearly 80 years old.
The Democrats have been so decimated as a party over the last few years that they have no back bench. They have no young up-and-comers with national name recognition.
