It would appear by the latest Harvard-Harris presidential poll that disenchanted Democratic voters are turned off by the dismal choices of 2020 Democratic candidates before them.
Some are even looking towards their failed standard-bearer, Hillary Clinton, to once again take on “The Donald” in 2020. Others are reminded of that timeless phrase “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
The poll conducted online between November 27th thru the 29th surveyed 1,859 Democratic voters. It shows Biden currently at 29%, followed by Sanders at 16%, Warren at 13% Buttigieg at 8%, followed by Bloomberg at 7%.
The survey also allowed for a few hypothetical scenarios, regarding the persistence rumors that Clinton may indeed enter the race. In fact, if that should occur Clinton captures 21% of the vote — edging out former Vice President Biden, who clocked in at 20% support, followed by Bernie Sanders with 12% and Elizabeth Warren in fourth place with 9%.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and unannounced former Secretary of State John Kerry would be tied for fifth place with 7% of the vote.
While Clinton has obsessed regarding her lose to President Trump in 2016, the likelihood of her actually declaring her candidacy may actually hinge on Biden imploding, which almost seems assured in light of his recent bizarre explanation regarding the ongoing Ukraine scandal along with his son Hunter, and the potential conflict of interest, by serving on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian energy company for approximately $50,000 a month, with no actual experience, while VP Biden was the point-man in Ukraine during the Obama administration.
The former vice president explained to a reporter “Nobody warned me about a potential conflict of interest. Nobody warned me about that.”
Then the former vice president did something so egregious, using his dead son as a foil for his malfeasance stating that his oldest son Beau was losing his battle with brain cancer. “Well, my son was dying, so I guess that’s why… But … they should have told me.”
As for the pudgy former first lady, who apparently believes that a third run for the Oval Office may, in fact, be in her destiny, lamented recently on BBC Radio-5 Live, “I’m Facing ‘Enormous Pressure’ to Enter 2020 Race”
Adding, “I Want to ‘Retire’ Trump”
When asked about her future in politics, Clinton said, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”
Moreover, when the radio host asked a feisty Clinton, regarding the 2020 election, Clinton perked up stating, “I, as I say never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you that is absolutely not in my plans.”
However if you were to ask former Clinton operative Dick Morris regarding Clinton’s continued obsession with losing the 2016 election, the chances of her running if Biden falters increases immensely.
Appearing Sunday on New York AM 970 radio, former Clinton adviser Dick Morris predicted there is “a good shot” 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton enters the 2020 Democratic field of candidates for the party’s nomination.
“I think there is a good shot at Hillary running,” Morris stated. “The latest poll numbers give her a real opening. In the latest polling in Iowa and New Hampshire, they reflect that Biden and Warren have both taken a dive.”
Adding, “Biden and Warren were blocking the lanes Hillary needs to run in in order to get nominated. Warren, because she’s a woman. And now with Kamala Harris out of the race, and Warren having slipped, that road may be open. Hillary may be able to say, vote for me, because I’m the only chance we have to elect a woman president.”
Once again, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
