Presidential Ponderation: Who Will be the Democratic Nominee in 2020?

Who fills this spot in 2020?

Polling data suggests that President Trump is in trouble as he gears up for his re-election campaign, but Democrats will still have to pick somebody to run against him. So, again, we’re asking you: Who will be the Democratic nominee in 2020? Click below to cast your vote.

When we asked this question in January, Sen. Kamala Harris was the clear favorite with 38% of the vote. Last summer, Pols readers thought former Vice President Joe Biden was the frontrunner. The field of potential candidates is changing quickly — just this week former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper officially joined the race, while Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown announced that he was out.

Pols readers are generally pretty good about predicting Colorado outcomes, so let’s see if you can keep it going in a national race.

As always, we want to know what you think will happen — not what you want to happen or who you personally might support. If you had to make a choice TODAY, who would you predict will be the Democratic nominee for President in 2020?

Since there are a gazillion candidates and we don’t want to take up the entire screen with this one poll, you’ll have to cast your vote after the jump…

  1. The top 3 per the betting markets are Sanders, Biden, and Harris,with O'Rourke a surprisingly high #4.

    At this point, I'm pretty sure it's going to come down to Harris and Sanders again and could go either way.

  3. Mike W. says:

    Bah, went by the title of the post and not the bold text above the poll. Was going to go with a technicality in that Klobuchar will be the nominee for something in 2020. Think she ends up on the ticket regardless, though early polling indicates she has a tough road to the top of that ticket. 

  4. CDW says:

    Wapo has a weekly "power ranking" of the candidates. FWIW, Biden is 1st this week with Harris and Sanders tied for 2nd.

    Hickenlooper comes in 8th with commenters being skeptical that he will be the candidate – more likely cabinet or veep position according to one.

    I picked "someone else" because who knows?
    We still have over a year of oppo research time to tell us that Kamala ate salad with a comb.
