Hillary Clinton is one of the names still being floated by Democrats as a possible presidential nominee in 2020, even though she’s failed twice in attempts at the office.
Others are Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
But a new poll shows 73 percent of Democrats want a new name for the next presidential race.
The national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters by Rasmussen Reports found just 16 percent of Democrats disagree and think the party should promote a candidate who has already run in the past. Eleven percent are undecided.
Democrats considered Hillary Clinton a shoo-in for the 2016 nomination, when just 36 percent were calling for a new face.
Among all likely voters in the survey, 65 percent say Democrats should find a new face for 2020, while only 19 percent think the party should go with someone who has run for the White House before, the report said.
The poll found 58 percent now believe Clinton has been bad for the Democratic Party. Only 22 percent think she’s been good for Democrats, while 12 percent say she’s had no impact on the party.
The survey was conducted July 11-12.
“Even among voters who believe Clinton has been good for Democrats, 62 percent believe the party needs to nominate a fresh face in 2020. Sixty-seven percent (67 percent) of those who think she’s been bad for the party agree,” the report said.
“Only 40 percent of all voters believe America would be better off today if Clinton had been elected president instead of Trump.”
