O’Rourke Leading 30 Democrats in New 2020 Poll

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) is leading the list of possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidates in a new poll conducted by the progressive group MoveOn.org that was released on Tuesday.

According to the poll, O’Rourke was the preferred candidate for 15.6 percent of respondents, leading former Vice President Joe Biden, who came in second with 14.9 percent, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with 13.1 percent.

The poll, which was first reported by NBC News, showed “a plurality of respondents — 29 percent — either said they did not yet know whom they would support or wanted someone else not listed among the group’s more than 30 potential candidate choices.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) came in fourth with 10 percent, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with 6 percent. None of the other 30 potential candidate choices received more than 3 percent of the vote.

“While the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president remains wide open and MoveOn’s endorsement is up for grabs, MoveOn members and progressives across the country are clear: They’re looking for candidates who will rally voters around a progressive vision of building a country where every American can thrive — whether we’re white, black, or brown, rich or poor,” Ilya Sheyman the executive director of MoveOn Political Action told NBC News. “We’ll be challenging prospective candidates to inspire us with big ideas in the months to come — including at a series of events in early voting states in early 2019.”
