New Jersey’s Cory Booker has favorables of 49%-12% in Iowa, where the first vote of the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination will take place.

A Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa poll released tonight puts the most well-known potential Democratic candidates, former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, on top.  Biden is the first choice of 32% of Democrats, while Sanders is at 19%.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke is running third at 11%, followed by U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (8%) and Kamala Harris (5%).  Booker is in sixth with 4%.

It’s not unusual for candidates to poll in the single digits thirteen months before the Iowa caucus.

Of the Democrats polled, 51% said they could imagine themselves voting for Booker.  If the 20 prospective candidates polled, only Warren (54%) was higher on the list.

The Iowa poll was conducted on December 10-13 and has a margin of error of +/-4.6%.
