Booker Has A Hill to Climb for Name Recognition

Like many of the Democratic presidential wannabes, newly declared candidate Cory Booker has a name recognition problem. So voters aren’t giving him much of a chance at this point of going all the way.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters think Booker is likely to end up being the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020, with just six percent (6%) who say it’s Very Likely. Fifty-five percent (55%) say it’s unlikely the U.S. senator from New Jersey and former mayor of Newark will be the nominee, including 24% who say it’s Not At All Likely. But 14% are not sure.
