80% Of Dem Voters Would Be Satisfied or Excited With Biden As the Party Nominee

Eighty percent (80%) of Registered Democrats and Democratic Leaning Independents would be satisfied or excited  with former Vice President Joe Biden as their party’s nominee. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that nearly as many say the same about Senators Bernie Sanders (75%), Elizabeth Warren (74%), or Kamala Harris (73%).

As the campaign was getting started, 85% expressed satisfaction with Biden as a potential nominee. That tumbled to 75% following the first round of debates but has now partially rebounded. Sanders numbers also dipped after the first debates and rebounded since. The results for Warren and Harris are little changed.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of women would be satisfied or excited with Biden as the nominee. Seventy-six percent (76%) of women are that comfortable with both Warren and 74% with Harris (see crosstab results).

Biden leads the race at the moment and also has the highest favorability ratings of any Democratic hopeful. He also  leads all Democratic candidates in terms of Social Media support.

Biden, Warren, Harris and Sanders have been the clear leaders in the race for several months (see topline trends). A few weeks ago, Scott Rasmussen suggested that we may already be down to a four-person race. Head-to-head match-ups among the top four Democrats are all toss-ups.

Sixty percent (60%) would be excited or satisfied with South Bend May Pete Buttigieg as the nominee. Fifty-seven percent (57%) say the same about former Congressman Beto O’Rourke.
