Senate Loser Beto O’Rourke Running 3rd In Democrat Presidential Poll

Sorry Liz, Cory and Kamala. The lefty base is looking for someone to fall in love with. They want the Obama Effect.

And you’re not it.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) enter the 2020 election cycle as the leaders for the Democratic presidential nomination to take on President Donald Trump, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll conducted in the immediate aftermath of last week’s midterms.

More than a quarter of Democratic voters, 26 percent, say Biden is their first choice to be the Democratic nominee. Another one-in-five, 19 percent, would pick Sanders, the runner-up for the nomination in 2016.

But the real story may be 3rd place.

Biden is an Obama leftover. Sanders has a cult of personality. The real race is for 3rd place.

The two septuagenarians — Biden will be 77 on Election Day, 2020, and Sanders will be 79 — are the only two prospective candidates to garner double-digit support. The third-place candidate is Rep. Beto O’Rourke (R-Texas), who built national name-recognition through his losing Senate bid last week, with 8 percent.

TRENDING ON SONS OF LIBERTY MEDIA

Following O’Rourke are three senators, all thought to be likely candidates: Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Warren is at 5 percent, Harris at 4 percent and Booker at 3 percent.

Cory Booker is toast. So is Warren. They both screwed up. Harris hasn’t screwed up. She just isn’t catching fire, despite all the money she’s putting into her plans. And that may be its own form of screw up. Look for her to start grabbing headlines soon.

Meanwhile, 3rd place goes to a Senate loser.
