In the most recent Economist/YouGov Democratic 2020 presidential primary poll, long-shot White House contender Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is in a statistical tie with Joe Biden among independent voters.
a poll margin of error of 2.9 percent, 11% of respondents said they’d
vote for Tulsi Gabbard, and 14% said they’d vote for Joe Biden in
response to the question:
“If the Democratic presidential primary or caucus in your state were held today, who would you vote for?”
That’s a remarkable showing among independent voters for a US House rep with far less national name recognition than the former vice president.
