Vice President Joe Biden and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders are the most popular choices to be the Democratic Party's presidential candidate in 2020, according to a Public Policy Poll released Tuesday.

Biden, the current vice president, and Vermont Sen. Sanders lead the pack among a list of Democrats the poll offered as options.

  • Biden: 31 percent.
  • Sanders: 24 percent.
  • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren: 16 percent.
  • New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker: 4 percent.
  • Minnesota Sen. Al Franken: 3 percent.
  • New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: 3 percent.
  • Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown: 2 percent.
  • New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: 2 percent.
  • U.S. Housing & Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro: less than 1 percent.

Biden, Sanders, and Warren are the only ones in the poll who are well-known to most Democratic voters, the poll's report said.

The poll also asked voters the age they preferred for a presidential candidate.

  • Under the age of 60: 57 percent.
  • Under 70: 77 percent.
  • In 70s: 8 percent.
  • No opinion: 15 percent.

More Democrat voters would prefer a brand-new candidate, the poll results showed.

  • Someone who has never run for president before: 41 percent.
  • Someone who has previously ran: 25 percent.
  • Not sure either way: 34 percent.

The poll questioned 400 Democratic primary voters on Dec. 6 and 7 with a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points.
