A new poll released by CNN shows former Vice President Joe Biden leading a crowded field of potential Democrat nominees. 75-year-old Joe picks up 33%, while 77-year-old washed-out Marxist Bernie Sanders somehow comes in second with 13%.
Pocahontas Warren, Spartacus Booker, Bloomberg, and creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti score in the single digits.
Out of 1009 respondants to the poll, 10 of them would actually vote for Avenatti to be President.
Americans are becoming more likely to think President Donald Trump will win a second term in office, while Joe Biden stands atop a crowded field of Democrats perhaps looking to replace him, according to a new CNN Pollconducted by SSRS.
In the race for the Democratic nomination to face Trump, former Vice President Biden leads a massive potential field. The poll asked Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents to choose their preferred presidential nominee among 16 possible candidates. Biden tops the list with 33% support, followed by independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the 2016 runner-up, at 13%. Sen. Kamala Harris of California follows at 9%, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 8%. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and 2004 Democratic nominee John Kerry garnered 5% support.
Sanders continues to prompt some of the same divisions he did in 2016, garnering lower support among self-identified Democrats and older voters. Among those who consider themselves Democrats, 34% back Biden, 11% Harris, 9% Sanders and 8% Warren. Among independents who say they lean to the Democratic Party, however, Sanders stands in second place, with 21% (Biden has 31%, Warren 8% and Harris 7%).
In an interview this past July, Trump exclaimed that he would love to face Biden, while saying of Biden’s past Presidential runs “He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap.”
