Bad News for Democrats. New Poll Shows They have “NO LEADER”
40% of Democrat registered voters say the Democratic Party has no leader!
That makes sense when you think about it.
Barack Obama was a disaster for the Democrat Party, losing the House, Senate, and countless state and local seats, not to mention many governorships.
The remaining cast of liberal characters, like Pelosi, Warren, Schumer, and Waters are grossly out of touch, clueless, liberal radicals who are recycling failed ideas and policies.
The Democratic Party has a leadership vacuum at the top, with many registered voters eager to see someone who is not currently on the scene become the party’s standard-bearer in 2020, according to a new Harvard-Harris Poll survey provided exclusively to The Hill.
When registered voters were asked whom they view as the leader of the Democratic Party, 40 percent said it has no leader.
Fifteen percent named former President Obama as the party’s leader. Twelve percent said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has gone out of his way not to join the Democratic Party despite running for the its presidential nomination last year.
Eleven percent view Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as the party’s leader, and 10 percent answered with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
On the question of who should be a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, Sanders led the field, at 14 percent, followed by former first lady Michelle Obama at 11 percent, Warren at 9 percent, Clinton at 8 percent, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each at 4 percent, and television personality Oprah Winfrey and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) each at 3 percent.
Forty-five percent said they want to see someone not on the list of possible candidates in the survey.
“There is a vacuum now in the Democratic Party in terms of leadership and a 2020 candidate, so it’s the Democrats who might have a raft of candidates next time, especially if the voters are searching for someone new,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn.
