As we near the midterm elections in the United States, many speculations have been emerging about who will be running. On the Democratic side, rumors have swirled about Facebook giant Mark Zuckerberg, politician Bernie Sanders, former First Lady Michelle Obama, and former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a recent survey about the 2020 elections, Democrats were asked who they would choose to vote for if they had to make an immediate decision. The survey was held by Zogby Analytics, who conducts the survey via telephone calls and online.
Participants had 10 options to choose from, including Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mark Zuckerberg, Kamala Harris, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Amy Klobuchar, and Kirsten Gillibrand.
Among the options given, the participants in the survey chose former First Lady Michelle Obama as their number one choice. Obama led the survey, receiving 22% of votes.
The former first lady beat out seasoned political veterans Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Biden came in second with 19% of votes, and Sanders came in third with 18% of votes.
Michelle Obama received a quarter of women voters, followed closely by Sanders and Biden. Among millennial voters, Sanders won with a third of the participants favoring him. Obama came in second with 28%.
The former first lady received 26% of the Hispanic vote, 38% of the African American vote, and 21% of the Asian American support. While she is popular among Democrats, however, Obama has given no indication that she will run.
Among participants, 20% said that they were unsure of who they would vote for. It is still too early to select an official nominee, but according to this survey, Obama could be a favorable option if she opted to run.
