It could be just an indication of high name recognition, but when California Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters are asked which potential 2020 presidential nominees would excite them, topping the list are former Vice President Joe Biden (60 percent) and California Sen. Kamala Harris (58 percent).
That's one key finding of a statewide California survey of 912 registered voters conducted by the respected Quinnipiac University Poll.
Rounding out the list and well behind the top two are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with 44 percent each, followed by former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke with 40 percent and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand whose nomination 21 percent say would excite them.
Biden, O'Rourke and Sanders have yet to declare their intentions on running in 2020.
Digging deeper into the survey, voters are mixed on how Harris would do as commander-in-chief. When all California voters were asked if Harris would make a good president, 40 percent said yes, while 38 percent said no. Harris did best among women, registered Democrats, Bay Area voters and younger voters aged 18 to 34 years old.
Overall, Harris gets generally positive reviews from voters on the job she's doing as senator, with 53 percent approving and 32 percent disapproving.
