Voters See Woman, Person of Color As 2020 Democratic Nominee

In a year where the Democratic party swore in the most diverse, most female class in history, most voters see that trend continuing all the way to the White House.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 63% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020 will be a woman or a person of color. Just 24% think that’s unlikely. This includes 23% who say a woman or person of color is Very Likely to win the Democratic presidential nomination and seven percent (7%) who say it’s Not At All Likely. Another 13% are undecided.
