Poll: Joe Biden is the Best Democrats Have to Offer for 2020
The last trickle of hope for the Democrats 2020 presidential is former Vice President
The last trickle of hope for the Democrat's 2020 presidential bid seemed to dissolve after a video of Sen. Kamala Harris, a promising contender, showed her boasting about prosecuting parents in 2010.
Now it seems that the only viable challenger against President Donald Trump is former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a new poll.
According to the Emerson College survey released on Saturday, Biden would prevail in 2020 with 51 percent of the vote to the president's 49 percent.
There are of course other Democrats with their eye on the White House, inclduing Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
There is also former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, who was also included the research's margin of error.
Ahead of the critical first-in-the-nation vote, Emerson College found the Biden was ahead for the Democratic field with almost 30 percent of the vote from Democrats planning to join the nominating process.
The sobering figure shows a 10-point advantage on Harris and Sanders and almost 20-points ahead of Warren.
According to the study, Trump would thrash former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a likely Republican primary challenger, in a head-to-head-match-up in Iowa: 90 percent to 10 percent.

Third-party independent candidate former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz would be a spoiler for a Democratic contender such as Warren, the poll suggests.
A total of 831 registered voters in the state were surveyed between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2 by the Iowa Emerson College poll.
The poll was conducted via landline telephones and an online panel.
Contenders like Elizabeth Warren, who recently issued an apology to Cherokees for her DNA test that revealed she was just 1/1024th Native American, are unlikely to become favorites.
And Rumours that Hillary Clinton had not "shut the door on 2020" were debunked by for campaign chief John Podesta who said the former Secretary of State would not be running for President in 2020.
Speaking to CNN, Podesta said he 'takes her at her word' after Clinton told him she had no intention of running for the third time.
