Iowa Poll: Biden 18%, Warren 17%, and Buttigieg at 13%
In the survey, Democrats who hadn’t named Warren as their first or second choice were asked why they weren’t supporting her. In the open-ended question, the three most frequent responses were: that they didn’t know enough about her; that they might support her; and that they were undecided. Those are all factors that the Massachusetts senator could address in her campaign.
Others said they didn’t agree with her on issues. About 5% said she wasn’t electable or couldn’t defeat President Donald Trump.
When the same question was asked in the June survey about why Democrats hadn’t named Biden as their first or second choice, the most frequent response was that he was too old. Others said they wanted fresh ideas or that it was time to “pass the torch” to a new generation.
