However, nearly half of respondents preferred a candidate not listed (13 percent) or responded “unsure” (36 percent).
In addition to the two frontrunners, other candidates on the list included Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
No other candidate ranked more than five percent in the poll.

Biden has repeatedly stated he plans to run again in 2024. If he does, he’ll be the oldest president to take office in history.
Many Americans also have concerns over Biden’s physical and cognitive health, questioning whether he can last through 2028 as president.
The poll showed no clear consensus on a new candidate, but the current leaders also show Harris and Obama as the top choices among the early options for 2024.
