VP in the lead

Early polling of Dems shows most support for undeclared Biden

We know, we know, it’s March 2019, not March 2020—kind of early to look ahead to the presidential primaries. But with challengers already jumping into the fray, it’s hard not to pay at least some attention to the impending election. As of the CN&R’s deadline, a dozen Democrats had stated intentions to run, including Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who finished second to Hillary Clinton for the 2018 nomination. Early polling suggests Democrats still feel the Bern. However, though former Vice President Joe Biden hadn’t declared, he led all the polls compiled by Real Clear Politics between Jan. 15 and Feb. 24. Here’s the polling average.

Joe Biden: 27.3%

Bernie Sanders: 18.3%

Kamala Harris: 10%

Elizabeth Warren: 7.3%

Beto O’Rourke: 6.8%

Corey Booker: 4.8%
