Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are the most popular potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, according to a new American Barometer poll.
The poll, which is a joint project of Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company showed Biden with a 50 percent favorability rating, while Sanders trailed with a 48 percent approval rating.
The article goes on to state the following:
Only 31 percent of those polled said they viewed the former vice president unfavorably. A third of respondents said they viewed Sanders unfavorably.
The survey comes as speculation swirls around a slew of potential Democratic contenders including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren(Mass.), and Cory Booker (N.J.), who could challenge President Trump in 2020.
Warren held the highest favorability rating among Democratic senators listed in the survey, with 31 percent of those polled saying they held a favorable view of the senator.
The poll showed Gillibrand holding a 20 percent favorability rating, while 21 percent of respondents said they have a favorable view of Harris, and 23 percent said the same for Booker.
“I remember lots of green room snickering over Bernie Sanders in September before the [2016 Iowa] primary,” Omero told Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons on “What America’s Thinking” Friday. “A lot can change. That doesn’t mean that Joe Biden doesn’t have an advantage.”
“I think there are going to be a lot of Democrats who are going to feel torn because there are so many exciting candidates from which to choose,” she continued.
