Biden’s Still Democrats’ Choice to Challenge Trump in 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the clear favorite among Democrats to be their presidential nominee in 2020. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator who challenged Hillary Clinton for the party’s nomination in 2016, is a fading second.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 37% of Likely Democratic Voters pick Biden first out of a field of six early contenders for the nomination when asked which of them best represents the party and would make the best candidate against President Trump if he runs for reelection in 2020.
