The Democrats are hoping to find a candidate that will stand a chance against Trump. Many popular Dems have come forward but according to a recent CNN Poll Biden is the current frontrunner.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to top the list when the potential Democratic electorate is asked who they’d be most likely to support for the nomination, with 30% saying they would back him. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders lands in second with 14%. Support for each is about the same as in October. O’Rourke lands in third with 9%, up 5 points since October. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker follows at 5%. California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren have each dropped 5 points since October and are now below 5% support.
None of the other 14 possible candidates tested hits 5% support.”
The sample size was only about 1000 people and over half of them appear to be wrong as they think Trump will fail to beat the Democrats in the upcoming 2020 election.
“Whoever may emerge from the Democratic nomination fight, just over half of all adults (51%) say they think Trump will lose his re-election bid, that’s up from 47% who said so in October before the midterm elections saw sharp Republican losses in House races across the country. That figure includes 17% of Republicans who think the President will lose.”
Joe Biden has already explained that he is unsure that he would up to the presidential challenge.
“If I were to run I think they would judge me on my vitality. Can I still run up the steps of Airforce 2? Am I still in good shape? Do I have all my faculties? Am I energetic? I think it is totally legitimate for people to ask those questions.”
So if you discount Joe Biden, the Dems don’t really have a front-runner yet. But whoever they pick I am sure Trump will be able to handle them.
