Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is emerging as the leading candidate among the various Democratic presidential hopefuls for the 2020 election, according to a new poll from Zogby Analytics.
If the Democratic primary or caucus were held today, voters would support:
- Sanders – 41 percent;
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., – 12 percent.
- Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., – 6 percent.
- Former Vice President Joe Biden – 17 percent.
- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., – 3 percent.
- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo – 3 percent.
- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – 7 percent.
- Sen. Amy Kobachar, D-Minn., – 1 percent.
- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe – 1 percent.
- Not sure – 23 percent.
Although Sanders has broad support, “there are instances where Biden and Warren outshine Sanders. For example, with older voters (age 50+), Biden is more popular or in the case of creative class voters working in STEM or other professional sectors who favor Warren,” writes Zogby.
“Among the democratic base, which consists of women voters, younger voters, voters living in large cities and many minority voters, Sanders performs well among all of these groups. Among women, Sanders beat Warren with a ratio of more than 3 to 1 and Biden almost 2 to 1.”
Zogby polled 834 U.S. voters, of which 356 are likely to vote in the Democratic primaries.
