Joe Biden is the most popular 2020 candidate among Democrats, according to a new poll



Former Vice President Joe Biden is the most beloved person on a list of potential Democratic presidential candidates for 2020, according to a new poll.

Seventy-four percent of registered Democratic voters view Biden favorably in the Morning Consult/Politico survey released Saturday.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ranks second, with 51 percent viewing her favorably out of 19 choices.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) places third at 45 percent, while Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) tie for fourth with 37 percent apiece.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) takes fifth with 35 percent, while Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) rounds out the top six at 28 percent.

Democrats are debating challengers for President Trump in 2020 following his stunning victory over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton last year.

Ben Dreyfuss, senior editor at Mother Jones, on Monday wondered if Biden, 74, is too old to seek the presidency in 2020.

Tallahassee, Florida, Mayor Andrew Gillum, a Democrat, on Monday tweeted that Biden has the right strategy for winning Florida.

Biden ruled out launching a White House run in 2016 following his son Beau Biden’s death due to brain cancer in May the year before.

The former vice president previously sought the Oval Office in 1988 and 2008 before joining former President Obama’s administration in 2009.
