Analyst says most 2020 candidates will face uphill battle because of name recognition Polling and public opinion analyst Dan Cox told "What America's Thinking" on Monday that most 2020 Democratic candidates will face an uphill battle due to their lower name recognition. "When it comes to [Sen. Bernie] Sanders [I-Vt.] and [former Vice President Joe] Biden now, they're benefitting largely from name recognition," Cox, a polling and public opinion research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told Hill.TV's Jamal Sim mons. "They've both run national campaigns. Biden obviously was the former VP [vice president]," he continued. "If you look at a candidate like [Sen.] Kamala Harris [D-Calif.

The Emerson College poll shows Biden leading the field with the backing of 40 percent of registered voters surveyed. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is a distant second with 23 percent of voters supporting the Vermont senator.

Biden has not yet announced a bid for the White House but is reportedly likely to enter the race.

Behind the two frontrunners, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) received 12 percent of the vote and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) received 11 percent. No other candidates received more than 5 percent, the poll found.

These Democratic voters were asked if they want Biden to run for president. Not one raised their hands.

These Democratic voters were asked if they want Biden to run for president. Not one raised their hands. A handful of voters who say they backed Hillary Clinton in 2016 say they are unexcited by the prospect of Joe Biden entering the 2020 field. "How many of you would like to see Joe Biden get in? Show of hands," CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked the panel of six Democrats, selected from Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, on "New Day" Tuesday morning. No one raised their hands. "His time is done," said Carol Evans, one of the panelists. "To be honest, Sen. Biden comes from kind of the good-old-boy politics of the past," added another panelist, Russell Banks.

If Biden does not jump into the race, respondents shift a large number of votes to Sanders, according to the poll. The poll shows that 42 percent of registered voters would back Sanders if Biden does not become an option, followed by Harris at 23 percent and Warren at 18 percent.

Sanders scored an upset victory over eventual 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in that year's Michigan Primary, beating the former Secretary of State by just over one point.

President Trump went on to win the state in the general election over Clinton, the first time the state had gone for a Republican presidential candidate since 1984.

The Emerson poll also showed each of the leading Democratic candidates defeating Trump in Michigan in a potential 2020 matchup.

Biden would defeat Trump by the widest margin, according to the poll, with 54 percent of the vote to Trump's 46 percent.

The poll's results are based on interviews with 743 registered voters in Michigan from March 7-10. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
