Former Vice President Joe Biden’s choice of his running mate is currently the talk of the town in Washington, but a majority of American voters believe that his Vice Presidential selection will not affect his attempt to win the 2020 US elections as per the latest poll by Politico/Morning Consult released on Wednesday. More than half, fifty-four percent of the registered voters who took part in the survey said that Biden’s choice of running mate would have no impact on how they would cast their ballot. Twenty percent of them believe that it would have a minor effect, and only the rest 16 percent said it would have a significant impact on their final ballot votes in November.
Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden promised to select a lady as his running mate, and the official announcement of the selection would be after August 1st. Speculation on who would be the vice president is still going on with some famous names like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Kamala Harris, who fought against Biden for the presidential race. Other contenders include Senator Tammy Duckworth, Rep. Val Demings, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Susan Rice, national security adviser for the Obama administration. The poll had some interesting figures when it comes to selecting a lady of color as the Vice Presidential candidate. Forty-six percent of Democrats believe that choosing a lady of color is important, which is an increase of 10 percent from the previous poll in April after the widespread racial protests took place in different states following the killing of George Floyd in police custody.
“I don’t see any American going into a voting booth thinking about the VP candidate before actually casting their vote,” said Democratic poll strategist Joel Payne. Meanwhile, celebrity rapper Kanye West, who announced that he would run for President as a third candidate earlier this month, was not so popular among the voters. Only 17% of the voters favored him to be the President, while more than 60 percent viewed him unfavorably. This poll was conducted from July 10 to 12, with 1992 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus two percentage points.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
