Nearly 70 percent of Democrats polled said they didn’t want to see Hillary Clinton run for president again in 2020, while 22 percent said they would be excited by it.
Oh, how I hope Hillary runs again! What fun that would be!
A USA Today/Suffolk University poll
released Wednesday found Democratic and independent voters lukewarm on a handful of party leaders and most excited for “someone entirely new.”
Just over 22% of respondents said Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s failed candidate in the 2016 election, would excite them, while almost 15% said her running in 2020 would “make no difference” and about 62% said she should not run.
Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders both fared about twice as well as Clinton, but still failed to elicit excitement from a majority of respondents.
After publicly toying with the idea of running in 2020, Biden said he had no intention
to do so. If he were to run and win, the current vice president would be 78 years old at the time of taking office. Sanders would be 79, and Trump would be 74.
Meanwhile, about a third of respondents said they would be excited by a 2020 bid from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick was overwhelmingly unknown.
