New poll reveals leading Dems for 2020 Iowa Caucus, painting picture antithetical to apparent Dem values

What happened to party that is supposedly "of the minority"?

Less than two years away from the 2020 presidential election, the first polls weighing support among Democrats, for who will challenge President Donald Trump, are revealing which potential candidates are the early frontrunners.

In Iowa, the first poll weighing the thoughts of likely caucusgoers, found that former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) are the early favorites. Obviously, the picture is drastically different from the Democratic Party's claim they are a party for minorities.

What are the details?

According to the CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll, which surveyed likely 2020 Democratic caucusgoers, the leading Democrats in the 2020 presidential race are:

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden: 32 percent
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders: 19 percent
  • Rep. Beto O'Rourke: 11 percent
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren: 8 percent
  • Sen. Kamala Harris: 5 percent

All other potential candidates — such as Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg — registered less than 5 percent of support in the poll.

As CNN noted, the results mirror those reported in a separate CNN poll last week surveying national support for potential 2020 Democratic candidates. That poll similarly found Biden, Sanders, and O'Rourke to be the three early frontrunners, with Booker and Harris falling into a distant fourth and fifth, respectively.

CNN's Iowa poll also found that Biden, Sanders, Warren, O'Rourke, and Booker are most favorably viewed by Iowans.
