Majority of Democrat Voters Expect Biden to Be Nominated, Despite Only Half of Them Wanting It: Poll

Just over half of Democrats want former Vice President Joe Biden as their partys presidential nominee, but a clear majority still expect he will become the nominee, according to a poll from Rasmussen Reports, a polling and media company.

The polling firms latest national telephone and online survey found that 54 percent of “likely Democratic voters” are satisfied with Biden as the Democrats 2020 presidential nominee. Meanwhile, 28 percent of the voters believe that someone else should be the presidential nominee. Another 18 percent indicated that they were undecided.

Ninety-two percent of voters said they think Biden will end up as the Democratic presidential nominee, with 77 percent indicating they believe the odds were “very likely.”

Among the 1,000 “likely voters” surveyed, 36 percent said they believe Democrats need to find someone other than Biden as nominee. Another 45 percent disagreed with the stance, and 19 percent were undecided. Of the likely voters surveyed, 82 percent think Biden will be the likely nominee, with 63 percent saying the odds were “very likely.”

The questions asked were: “How likely is it that Joe Biden will be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020? Very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely, or not at all likely?” and, “Should Democrats find someone other than Biden to be their nominee?”

Rasmussen Reports conducted the survey on May 10-11. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence, the polling firm stated.
