the Democrats have begun the search for a candidate who can defeat Donald Trump in the presidential election in 2020, and an old favorite are among the favorites.
A measurement published on Sunday shows that Joe Biden, former vice president and senator, supported by nearly one third (32 percent) democratic elect in the state of Iowa.
Senator Bernie Sanders (19 percent) and kongresmanden Beto O'rourke (11 percent) taking the subsequent positions.
Senator Elizabeth Warren gets eight points, while none of the other candidates gets over five percent support.
Ann Selzer, who is behind the poll, points out that both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are already well-known names.
- It is not Joe biden's first trip in manegen – or any other trip for that matter, she says to the newspaper the Des Moines Register.

however, It is not guaranteed that a win in Iowa leads to a nomination as a presidential candidate. For example, lost Donald Trump to rival Ted Cruz in Iowa.
Barack Obama, by contrast, took the first step toward the nomination as the democratic presidential candidate, when he in 2008 he defeated Hillary Clinton in Iowa.
Joe Biden, who has a past as a senator for the state of Delaware, has been kept on the sidelines since he left The White House after eight years as president Obama's vice president.
Biden, who has said that he is currently considering his options, however, is not in doubt that he is a suitable candidate.
- I'll be honest: I believe that I am the best qualified person in this country to be president, said last week, when he was confronted with the question.
Joe Biden, however, has aged against themselves. He is 76 years old and so run the risk of becoming the oldest person elected to the presidency.
But age is obviously not a problem for the voters in Iowa. Bernie Sanders - who was number two in the measurement of its 77 years of age yet older.
In the measurement corresponds to a majority of 49 percent of the respondents as also, that they prefer the ’experience’ rather than a ’fresh face’ (36 percent).
But there 400 days to the voters in Iowa must provide their position to the expression in the primary election, so there is good time to think about.
