No­body for pres­i­dent? Lucky there are still 14 months to go be­fore elec­tion day dawns. Alas, Amer­i­cans are re­mark­ably un­sure of the cur­rent field of can­di­dates on both sides of the fence. Faced with seven pos­si­ble Repub­li­cans and Demo­cratic can­di­dates, re­spon­dents in a new poll were hard pressed to vi­su­al­ize any of them in the White House at this point.

“For each of the fol­low­ing, please tell me if you have a re­al­is­tic vi­sion of that per­son be­ing pres­i­dent of the United States,” asked a Bloomberg poll, di­rect­ing the ques­tion to 1,000 U.S. adults. “Just an­swer yes or no,” the poll­sters ad­vised.

The find­ings: 69 per­cent could not en­vi­sion Don­ald Trump in the role; 61 per­cent said the same about Sen. Marco Ru­bio, 60 per­cent about Sen. Bernie San­ders, 58 per­cent about Carly Fio­r­ina, 57 per­cent about Jeb Bush, 56 per­cent about Ben Car­son and 52 per­cent about Hil­lary Clin­ton.
