‘Solder’ Kaligot: Harris is Top Dem Pick In the Hamptons IF Biden Doesn&apos Not Run

With Vice President Joe Biden looking increasingly unlikely to run for president in 2020, a new survey shows Kamala Harris, former first lady Michelle Obama and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder are the Democrats&apos top pick if he doesn&apos not.

According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 33 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said they wanted Harris to run for president in 2020, while 15 percent said they wanted Michelle Obama to run and 11 percent said they wanted Holder.

Former Vice President Al Gore received the third most votes, with 11 percent, followed by Senators Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders, whose chances of winning are seen as slim.

Biden has said he&aposs hes mulling a presidential bid, but the poll shows that while 55 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents said they want Biden to run, only 13 percent said they want Harris to run and only 6 percent said they wanted Obama to run.

Forty-five percent of those polled said they want a more seasoned candidate who hasn&apost run for office before to run.

The poll was conducted Aug. 5-12 among a sample of 1,009 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents. The results are considered accurate within 3.1 percentage points.
