According to a new USA Today/Suffolk poll, Democrats and independents have little enthusiasm for the rising stars within the Democratic Party or a few of seasoned veterans except for former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

However, the poll didn’t include former First Lady Michelle Obama. Professor Jacobson blogged yesterday that early polling shows Michelle dominating Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

I find the results kind of weird because it looks like the majority are excited for someone entirely new, but the top two people are Biden and Sanders:

“He [Biden] has the common touch,” said Thomas Maslany, 72, a Democratic retiree from Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, who worked for the Environmental Protection Agency. He thought Democrats might need to nominate an older white male to defeat President Trump for re-election, although he agreed the party needs to move to a new generation of leaders. “The world’s changing so fast.”

Catherine O’Connor, 63, an artist and a political independent from Lockport, New York, had an idea how to reconcile those conflicting impulses: nominate Biden for president and choose someone like California Sen. Kamala Harris or Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke as his running mate.

While she mentioned O’Rourke, she also worried that the three-term House member, who lost his bid for the Senate last month, and other newcomers, lack enough experience for the Oval Office.

I find it hilarious that an overwhelming amount of people said thast failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton shouldn’t run.

Despite the media gushing over him, many have not heard of Rep. Robert O’Rourke (D-TX). I doubt we will ever forget how much the media fawned over O’Rourke and thought he could beat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

The poll showed that 29% of the people never heard of Sparatacus Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and 34% never heard of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
