2020 Presidential Poll Results

//2020 Presidential Poll Results

With more than two-dozen well-qualified Democrats running for our party’s presidential nomination, Illinois could be one of the deciding states in who takes on Donald Trump in 2020. It’s been a long time since Illinois was so critical in the presidential Primary contest.

From Monday April 15th through Monday May 6th, the IDCCA conducted a non-scientific online poll to get a snapshot of how each Presidential candidate was doing in Illinois. Over 7,100 people participated in the online poll. The poll included individuals who were announced candidates for President, individuals who have formed Exploratory Committees for President, and other individuals who have stated that they are/were considering running for President.
The IDCCA set out to answer three questions.
  • Who do you support as the Democratic nominee for President?
  • Who for Vice President?
  • What region of Illinois do you reside?

The results for each question are as follows:
