62% Democrats, independents don't want Clinton to run againtext_fields
Washington: A majority of Democratic and independent voters made clear that they do not foresee Hillary Clinton in their 2020 vision of the presidential election, according to a USA Today/Suffolk University poll.
According to the poll released on Wednesday, 62 per cent of Democrats and independents surveyed said the twice-failed presidential candidate should not mount another campaign in 2020, and only 23 per cent would be excited by her campaign if she did, Politico reported.
Forty-four per cent and 43 per cent of those voters, respectively, said they would be excited to see Sanders and Biden run, the poll showed.
A majority of Democrats and independents would like to see a new name, though.
While 35 per cent would be excited about a Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren run and 10 percent for former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, 66 per cent would like to see "someone entirely new" become the Democratic Party's standard-bearer as it looks to rebound from a surprising Election Day loss that saw US President-elect Donald Trump prevail over Clinton and Republicans maintain control over the House and Senate.
The national survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted December 14-18 via land-lines and cellphones.
It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
