Most Democrats say bring on Biden
New CNN Politics Poll Conducted by SSRS
More than six in 10 Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters say former Vice President Joe Biden should make a run for president, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and half of all Americans say they would be at least somewhat likely to back him should he run for the White House.<
At the same time, 52% of Americans say they are not at all likely to support President Donald Trump for re-election in the coming 2020 contest.
About half of Democrats and Democratic-leaners (49%) say the ability to beat Trump is extremely important to them in deciding whom to support for their party’s nomination in 2020, that outpaces the second highest-rated trait — having the right experience to be president — by 10 points.
Support for a bid from Biden is higher among Democratic voters this year (62%) than it was in 2015. Back then, only about half of Democratic voters said they wanted Biden to run (53% in August, 47% in October).
