Poll: Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke Seen as 2020 Presidential Contender



A failed U.S. Senate candidate from Texas is polling well among Democrats for a potential 2020 bid for president.

“[State] Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) is considered one of the top Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020 even among more well-known potential hopefuls, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill,” according to The Hill. 

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, the Latino who wasn’t, is tracking behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) According to the poll, Biden leads among Democrats with 28 percent, Sanders is at 21 percent and O’Rourke is at seven percent.

The report said that Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Corey Booker (N.J.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) “polled in the low single digits.”

O’Rourke is seen by many as a prototype of President Barack Obama. He is relatively young, charismatic and progressive. Others see right through the charade, like they did during the Obama presidency. He pitched himself as a populist Democrat, though his father-in-law is a billionaire.

Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti garnered just two percent in the poll.

O’Rourke’s Senate campaign spent a historic $80 million dollars – granted some was allocated to assisting the migrant caravan that attempted to illegally storm the U.S. southern border – only to lose to incumbent Sen. Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-Texas), an actual Latino.

Obviously, any polling at this stage is uncertain at best, but O’Rourke appears to be a genuine contender.
