I know media editor’s thing ole’ Joe is pass’…
He isn’t to most Democrats as the polling has shown for months…..
Despite ALL the noise about up to 20 people running for 2020 Democratic running for the nomination?
The nomination IS his to lose….
Former Vice President Joe Biden leads the field of potential Democratic presidential contenders, according to a new poll.
Biden is supported by 26 percent of Democrats surveyed in a Morning Consult/Politico poll. He’s followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who took 16 percent, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at 9 percent.
While Biden hasn’t yet announced whether he will seek the Democratic nomination in 2020, he has consistently been viewed as a top-tier candidate in polls even as other high-profile Democrats, like Harris, have jumped into the contest.
Like Biden, Sanders has yet to say whether he will run, though both men are expected to announce their decisions in the coming weeks.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll showed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) tied for fourth in the survey at 6 percent, while Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) follow at 2 percent each among Democratic respondents….
The interesting thing in this poll is that Kamala Harris comes in third….
Harris has not been in the first tier in recent polls…Beto O’Rourke has…
Kinda confirms the ‘beauty contest’ early factor right now for everyone except Biden and Sanders….
