54% Think Biden Is Likely Democratic Nominee

Fifty-four percent (54%) of Registered Democrats and Democratic leaning Independents think Joe Biden is likely to win the Democratic presidential nomination. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 18% see Bernie Sanders as the likely nominee, 7% say Elizabeth Warren, 4% Kamala Harris, and 3% Beto O’Rourke.

The survey was completed immediately prior to the first night of the Democratic debates (see full crosstab results).

In addition to our public opinion polling, we measure the Social Media Support for each Democratic candidate.  Support is measured both in terms of volume of chatter and how positive or negative the chatter is about a particular candidate. New numbers are released by ScottRasmussen.com each morning at 4:30 a.m. Eastern. By that measure, Sanders is currently number one followed by Biden and Warren.
