Democrat voters are apparently tired of the status quo. A new pol suggests that all of the candidates you would expect the party to run in 2020 get beaten by ‘someone new.’
There’s just one little problem with that. The Democrats don’t really have anyone new.
WHO SHOULD RUN IN 2020? SANDERS, WARREN, MICHELLE OBAMA BEAT BY ‘SOMEONE NEW,’ POLL SHOWS
It’s not entirely clear who voters do want the Democrats to offer as their nominee for the 2020 presidential race. But a new poll this week showed they might not want the same old options.
A Harvard-Harris survey polled voters on potential liberal candidates and no real front-runner emerged. Fourteen percent chose 2016 candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders; 11 percent chose Michelle Obama (who has repeatedly said she would not run); nine percent went with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and eight percent decided on 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker each got three percent support.
The survey included some fringe candidates—although it’s worth noting that the current U.S. president is a reality TV veteran in the WWE Hall of Fame—who registered minor levels of support. Mark Cuban, the outspoken billionaire owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, earned four percent support, while the queen of daytime television, Oprah Winfrey, garnered three percent.
The overwhelming favorite among respondents, however, was the choice “someone new.” That option drew a strong 45 percent.
Who could the Democrats run that would possibly qualify as new?
