A stunning new poll of registered Democrats is showing that Hillary Clinton is leading her potential Democratic rivals in the race for the party’s nomination, even though she isn’t even offically a candidate yet.
As The New York Post reports:
A new poll of registered Democrats has Hillary Clinton as their top choice for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination — and she’s not even running.
The online Harris Poll survey released by the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard found that Clinton placed first with 21% of the vote, followed closely by former Vice President Joe Biden at 20%, Sen. Bernie Sanders at 12%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 9% and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 7%.
It polled 1,859 voters and was conducted between Nov. 27 and 29 of this year.
Pollsters also surveyed respondents without Clinton in the race — and Biden came out first, with 29% of the vote, followed by Sanders at 16% and Warren at 13%.
Clinton has repeatedly claimed that she isn’t running in 2020 but did acknowledge that she has been ‘deluged’ with requests for her to do so. She also mentioned that she needs to ‘make up her mind soon’ about whether to run or not.
