Just five months out from November’s midterm elections, voters in competitive battleground districts don’t have a clear idea of who leads the Democratic Party, a new poll reveals.
When voters in those key districts were asked who the party’s leader is, the most popular answer was, “There isn’t one,” according to a CBS/YouGov poll released on Sunday.
Forty-five percent of midterm voters say Democrats are leaderless, the poll found.
Voters who said the Democratic Party does have a leader, couldn’t agree on who that leader is.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer received with 16 percent of the vote; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi received 15 percent; and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist independent who ran for president as a Democrat in 2016, received 13 percent.
Seven percent named former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the twice-failed presidential candidate, as the leader of the party, while another four percent listed someone else.
The midterm battle for control of the House of Representatives is currently a toss-up, the poll found.
The poll was conducted over May 24 – 30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.6 percent.
