Heading into the October Democratic presidential debate, Democratic voters would generally be happy with any of the top three candidates as their party’s nominee.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Registered Democrats and Democratic Leaning Independents would be satisfied or excited with former Vice President Joe Biden as their party’s presidential nominee. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 76% say the same about Senator Elizabeth Warren and 75% would be that comfortable with Senator Bernie Sanders.
Biden’s numbers are unchanged from a month ago. Warren’s total is up three points and Sanders is up two. Earlier this year, as the campaign was getting started, 85% expressed satisfaction with Biden as a potential nominee and nobody else was close.
At this point, 68% would be satisfied with Senator Kamala Harris, 63% with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and 60% with Beto O’Rourke (see crosstab results).
Heading into the debate, Biden and Warren lead in terms of Social Media support, followed closely by Sanders and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
