A year after the catastrophic 2016 defeat, Democrats are in dire need of new faces with fresh ideas. Yet many of the leading contenders for the White House in 2020 are politicians who have been around for decades. There’s also no clear standout in the potential field.

Not great news considering that the next election WILL BE the single most essential, future defining election in history.

Political publication, The Hill took to Capitol Hill and conducted a survey amongst prominent party leaders to see who currently is looking like the next white horse. 

The person on the top of the list is a bit of a surprise as it's none other than the Independent turned Democratic Senator form Vermont, Bernie Sanders.

The Bern is still burning apparently. This actually has been a quiet rumor making the rounds since last November. 

Sanders, who will be nearly 80 for the next campaign cycle is popular still amongst the base but doesn't really scream new blood. 

Twitter had some initial thoughts.

Looks like that poll may need a recount. Yes, it seems Bernie may have been swindled last time around by the DNC but handing him the next chance isn't looking like the most popular option. 

A few other names being jockeyed about are Elizabeth Wareen, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Deval Patrick. Also not the newest names but definitely a better place to start looking.
