Booker polling at 2% in Nevada

Cory Booker is at 2% in Nevada, according to a new Monmouth University Poll of likely Democratic caucusgoers.

Booker has favorables of 61%-9%.  He was the first announced presidential candidate to visit Nevada when he stumped there in April.

Nevada is scheduled to hold their caucus four days after the New Hampshire primary.

Joe Biden leads Elizabeth Warren, 36%-19%, with Bernie Sanders in third place with 13%.

The rest of the pack polls in single digits: Pete Buttigieg (7%) and Kamala Harris (6%).  Booker is in sixth place, tied with Beto O’Rourke and Andrew Yang.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton win Nevada with 53% of the vote against Sanders, 6,440 to 5,785.

Booker’s favorables are toward the top of the list of Democratic presidential candidates.

Biden’s has favorables of 78%-13%, with Warren at 70%-11, Sanders at 65%-20%, and Harris at 67%-9%.

None of the other candidates are over 60% favorable.  Booker runs fourth on net favorable ratings in Nevada.

Latino voters, a significant block in Nevada, favors Biden by a 27%-19% margin over Sanders, with Warren at 11%.  One out of five Latino Democratic caucusgoers (20%) are still undecided.

“Nevada is the first state on the Democrats’ 2020 calendar with an ethnically diverse electorate.  Latino voters seem to be particularly up for grabs right now,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.  “Nevada’s highly unionized service sector workforce may be a good fit for Warren’s policy platform when you look at the Democratic electorates in the four early states.”

Murray said that Warren is “nowhere near the top tier in terms of candidate preferences among Latino and black voters, who make up a significant part of the party’s base here.”

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone from June 6-11, 2019 with 370 Nevada voters who are likely to attend the Democratic presidential caucuses in February 2020, out of 1,333 registered Democrats and unaffiliated voters who were contacted for the poll.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 5.1%.
