Hilary Clinton did not show any sign of running again for the 2020 presidential race, yet, she still stands at top place in the Harvard-Harris national poll.
The survey on 1,859 voters was conducted from Nov. 27 to 29, where 21% of respondents indicated they would vote for Clinton. A slightly smaller portion of 20% claimed they would vote for former Vice President Joe Biden. Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) followed suit at 12% and 9%, respectively. The late runner, ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg edged the rest of candidates and placed just after Warren at 7%.
When Clinton was left out, Biden came out first at 29% followed by Sanders (16%) and Warren (13%).
Clinton has never explicitly confirmed her decision to enter the race although still dreams about the presidential election she lost to Donald Trump in 2016, reported Daily Wire.
In the interview with BBC Radio in November, she said, “I think about what I would have done. How, obviously, I would have been different. How I think I would have been a better, more successful president.”
The former secretary of state has also repeatedly targeted other Democratic candidates including Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), calling them “Russian allies,” reported media.
The former first lady received more than 2.8 million more votes than Donald Trump in 2016, but concede to him after she fell far short of the required absolute majority of 270 Electoral College votes needed to win.
