Democrats reveal new 2020 presidential frontrunner

By Josh King for Veuer

In a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll taken over a five-day period, voters have a new democratic favorite for the 2020 election. That person's identity, however, is still a mystery.

The choice of "someone entirely new" on the poll received the majority of democrat and independent votes, with 66 percent saying they would be "excited" to see a new person in the race. When compared to the 23 percent who would be excited to see Hillary Clinton run again, the new candidate would have an overwhelming advantage from the start.
