DEMOCRATS EN­VI­SION THE BAL­LOT

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Anx­ious Democrats al­ready are con­sid­er­ing who should run for pres­i­dent in four years. A new Pub­lic Pol­icy Polling sur­vey finds that 57 per­cent of them want their can­di­date to be un­der the age of 60, while 77 per­cent in­sist their can­di­date to be un­der 70. Only a quar­ter want some­one who al­ready has run for the White House on the bal­lot again. Of course, there’s irony.

“The top two choices of Democrats for 2020 at this very early stage are peo­ple in their 70s who have run for pres­i­dent be­fore,” points out polling di­rec­tor Tom Jensen.

Yes, well. Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den led the bal­lot with 31 per­cent of the vote, fol­lowed by 24 per­cent for Sen. Bernard San­ders, and 16 per­cent for Sen. El­iz­a­beth War­ren. Those with un­der 5 per­cent of the vote each in­clude Sens. Cory Booker, Al Franken, Kirsten Gil­li­brand and Sher­rod Brown, and New York Gov. An­drew Cuomo.
