Major details about Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential bid is out
Former Vice President Joe Biden has a small lead over media mogul Oprah Winfrey and the field of potential Democratic presidential candidates for 2020, according to a new survey.
The poll from RABA Research — an outlet helmed by past campaign aides for former President Obama and former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush — finds Biden leading among Democratic voters polled with 26 percent support.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), whose insurgent challenge to Hillary Clinton turned him into a pop culture icon and progressive hero, is in second place at 21 percent.
Winfrey, whose Golden Globes speech this week sparked presidential buzz on the left, takes 20 percent. She is followed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) at 18 percent.
Fifteen percent of respondents said they’re unsure at this point or would pick someone else. Democrats could have a massive field of candidates vying to take on President Trump in 2020.
Biden also has the highest favorability rating in the field, at 76 percent positive.
Winfrey and Sanders ring in at 67 percent favorable, while 58 percent of Democrats have a positive view of Warren.
The RABA online survey of 345 Democrats nationwide was conducted between Jan. 10-11 and has a 5 percentage point margin of error.
