Former Vice President Joe Biden is the most popular choice for the Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, according to the Morning Consult/Politico poll just released on Monday.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is the runner-up, favored by 51 percent of the 895 registered Democratic voters surveyed nationally in the poll, comparing to Biden's 74 percent favorability.
Other candidates received most support in the new poll include Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who had a well-known acting and writing career before being elected a senator, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who served as the mayor of Newark, as well as Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016.

“I have no intention of running for president but I'm a great respecter of fate. ... I don't have any plans to do it, but I'm not promising I wouldn't do it.”
It has raised some mixed reactions on the internet. Dozens have replied since several media posts about the new polling results:

Biden himself hasn't replied to the new polling result.
