Voters Question Value of So Many Democrats Seeking White House

Some have estimated that up to 40 prominent Democrats will enter the race for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Even Democratic voters aren’t thrilled by that prospect.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 26% of all Likely U.S. Voters think that a presidential race that begins with that many potential nominees is good for the Democratic Party. Thirty-four percent (34%) predict that it will be bad for the party, while 26% say it will have no impact. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
