Hillary Clinton would be in dead heat with Joe Biden for 2020 Democratic nomination if she jumped into the race
The numbers of the poll come just a month after Clinton, in an interview with PBS, suggested that she could "beat" Trump in 2020.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be nearly tied for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination if the former first lady were to launch her bid again, according to a new poll. The survey, conducted by Harvard Harris, found out that Clinton would get 18 percent of the vote if she entered the 2020 race today, while Biden would get 19 percent of the Democratic votes. The latter currently has 33 percent of the support after launching his bid in April this year.
The poll reportedly surveyed 2,000 registered voters, who were asked to fill out an online questionnaire from October 28 to 31. The numbers of the poll come just a month after Clinton, in an interview with PBS, suggested that she could "beat" Trump in 2020. The former secretary of state, last month, during the interview also vented about the issue that plagued her 2016 election bid.
"Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my emails, we all know that. So, he’s either lying or delusional, or both," Clinton had said, referring to Trump's frequent tweets about a need for an investigation into her emails again.
"There was no subpoena as he says in a tweet this morning, so, maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously, I can beat him again." She had also recently replied to President Donald Trump's tweet, taunting her to run for the presidency again, with "don't tempt me."
The GOP political consultant, Dick Morris, who advised President Bill Clinton when he was facing impeachment, also hinted last week that the former first lady might launch a third presidential bid.
"The issue is will the ghost of Hillary Clinton come out and get into the election?" Morris told John Catsimatidis on 'The Cats Roundtable' Sunday. "She wants to. She feels entitled to do it. She feels compelled to do it. She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it."
