Nearly three-fourths of likely Democratic voters said that they want a new face to lead the party into the 2020 presidential election, according to a new poll that was conducted by Rasmussen last week.
According to the poll, 73 percent of likely Democratic voters stated that they think ‘a new face’ is necessary for the presidential election in 2020.
Conversely, only 16 percent disagree, saying the party should select a candidate that has previously run for president. That candidate would realistically be Hillary Clinton, and there have been rumors surrounding that possibility. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Running in 2020? It Sure Sounds Like It)
Many Democrats have reportedly expressed interest in running for president as the Democratic nominee. Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden have both considered running again in 2020. While both of them campaigned for the Democratic nomination in the past, neither has ever gotten it.
Only 11 percent of those included in the survey said they were unsure.
Some potential new faces include Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts and Kamala Harris from California.
There have also been non-politicians interested in trying to follow the path blazed by President Trump as a non-politician being voted into the White House. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz stepped down from his position with the company reportedly in order to weigh the possibility of a potential run. He recently fell flat in a donor meeting arranged by former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. (Romney Held Dom Donor Meeting For Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz And It Didn’t Go Well)
The survey has a sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points with a 95-percent level of confidence. It was conducted on July 11–12.
