Former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may have won the popular vote, but the vast majority of voters said they don’t want to see her run again, a Suffolk University/USA Today poll released Wednesday found.
Of the Independents and Democrats surveyed, a whopping 62% of voters said she shouldn’t run in 2020, faring much worse than her primary challenger, Vermont Sen. [score]Bernie Sanders[/score], who had just 38% saying he should opt out.
Just 23% said they were excited about the thought of her running again after President-elect Donald Trump won by a landslide in a surprise upset.
Forty-four percent of Democratic and Independent voters said they would be excited about Vice President [score]Joe Biden[/score] or Sanders to run, while 66% said they would like to see someone entirely new.
Clinton’s favorability rating remains low with 42% saying they have a positive outlook and 55% saying they have an unfavorable view. Forty percent say they have a favorable opinion of Trump, while 46% say they have an unfavorable view.
The survey was conducted with a sample of 1000 voters from Dec. 14 to Dec. 18 via landlines and cellphones and reports a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
