Poll: Joe ‘BFD’ Biden currently leads field of Democrat challengers For 2020

For all the talk of needing new blood to restore life to the Democratic Party’s rudderless platform, a new poll from Zogby Analytics shows that the current frontrunner is “old” blood: 75 years old to be exact. And it courses through the veins of former Vice President Joe Biden, whose his lead over Bernie Sanders in a potential Democrat primary matchup in 2020 is expanding.

Biden leads the senator from Vermont by an 8% margin, 26% to 18%. Oprah Winfrey, who vowed she wasn’t going to run, is nevertheless a “show” at 14%, with a woman who faked American Indian heritage to get where she is, Elizabeth Warren, a distant fourth at 8%.

Bringing up the rear are Kamala Harris (4%), Cory Booker (3%), Andrew Cuomo (2%), Sherrod Brown (1%), Kirsten Gillibrand (1%), Deval Patrick (1%), Eric Holder (1%), and Terry McCauliffe (1%).

Actually, the ever-popular “Not Sure” came in at a rousing 22% and could rival Biden should he/she announce.

How is Biden doing it? He’s getting stronger polling numbers as the voter age increases. While millennials continue to gravitate towards the socialist curmudgeon in Sanders, those old enough to know what socialism does to a society are leaning more toward Biden.

“Biden is particularly strong with voters aged 50+; he receives 24% among likely voters aged 30-49; 32% among likely voters aged 50-64, and 40% among likely voters aged 65+,” the Zogby report reads. “In each of these age cohorts, Biden bests Sanders, except for voters aged 18-29, where Sanders wins by an almost 2 to 1 margin.”

Maybe it’s that … or maybe it’s just because his “hands-on” approach is appealing to people. And by “hands-on,” we really mean “hands-on.”

Biden has said that he’d only consider a presidential run if he could take on Donald Trump.

“If Trump runs, Biden is suggesting he’s likely to do it because age won’t be a factor,” an individual close to Biden told FOX Business. “He also thinks he can beat Trump.”

We’d certainly like to see that matchup.
