Dems' presidential wish list for 2024 does not have Joe Biden at top

A new survey found that the two most popular Democrats ahead of the 2024 presidential election should Joe Biden decide not to run, or be unable to run, are both black women.

The Hill-HarrisX poll found Vice President Kamala Harris and former first lady Michelle Obama are the leading Democratic candidates for 2024.

The survey had Harris leading a handful of Democratic candidates with 13% of support, followed by Mrs. Obama who had 10%.

Other candidates listed in the poll include several Democrats who previously ran for president in 2020.

Candidates who received 5 percent or less include Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Cory Booker, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and businessman Andrew Yang, according to the survey.

Yang withdrew from the party several months ago.

In addition, 36 percent of respondents said they were not sure whom they preferred, while 13 percent said they are looking to another candidate that is not listed in the poll.

The survey results don’t seem to reflect the reality of Harris’ overall unpopularity, however.

In late October, a project run by the Los Angeles Times which tracks opinion polls from around the country revealed she is less popular than Biden and many of her own predecessors.

Since taking office, Harris has been assigned one of the administration’s thorniest issues: stemming the influx of immigrants attempting to cross U.S. borders. Republicans have sought to make her the face of an issue that they believe could help them politically.
