New Poll Shows Which Candidates Would Make Democratic Primary Voters Most – and Least – ‘Disappointed’ if They Won

“Are there any presidential candidates that you would be disappointed if they became the Democratic nominee?” asks the poll of 1500 U.S. adults, registered voters who say they will vote in the Democratic Presidential primary or caucus in 2020.

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard tops the list.

43% of those polled say were she to win the Democratic nomination for president they would be disappointed.

Marianne Williamson comes in second at 39%, and Mike Bloomberg comes in third at 29%.

Closely following Warren is Sen. Cory Booker, at 13%, then Sen. Amy Klobuchar at 16%.

The poll was taken January 5 – 7, 2020.

For those who’d like to look at the numbers, it’s question 56 on page 149.
