As 2020 approaches, here’s a preview of how the Center is approaching the election, both in terms of how we plan to conduct surveys and other studies and what we plan to explore.
A majority of Democratic voters who prefer one of the presidential candidates are excited about several candidates vying for the party's nomination. Far fewer are enthused only by their first choice.
Democratic voters report high levels of satisfaction with the Democratic candidates as a group. The election also is attracting more interest than past elections did at similar points in the cycle.
When asked about the ideal age for a president, most Democrats say they prefer someone in their 40s through their 60s, with nearly half (47%) saying the best age for a president is “in their 50s.”
The 2020 U.S. presidential election is rapidly coming into view – and so is the electorate that will determine its outcome.
