Likely Democratic voters in primary states are not eager for a third White House run by Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
A 2020 primary survey conducted by TargetPoint Consulting revealed voter fatigue among Democrats with the two-time failed presidential candidate. The poll is the first to include Clinton among 2020 hopefuls, just as her former aides suggest she is gearing up for another presidential campaign.
The survey also reveals the top two most important issues to Democratic voters—securing single-payer health care and repeal of the Second Amendment.
Former vice president Joe Biden leads the field, but with just 29 percent of the vote. Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders is the only other candidate to crack 20 percent, while Clinton shares a distant fourth place with just 8 percent of likely voters saying they would support her in 2020. Oprah Winfrey also secured 8 percent of the vote.
Sixteen percent said they would choose to vote for a candidate not listed.
Clinton does, however, receive more support than several Democrats who are expected to run, including senators Elizabeth Warren (7 percent), Cory Booker (6 percent), and Kamala Harris (3 percent). Porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti, former secretary of state John Kerry, liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) each garnered just 1 percent.
