Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to dominate 2020 Democratic primary polls despite not being a declared candidate.

The latest affirmation from Democrats who say Biden should run is a Tampa Bay Times survey, which found 70 percent said Biden has the best chance of winning the Democratic primary in Florida, which takes place March 17, 2020. The next person on the list was Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who garnered roughly 10 percent support.

Other findings in the poll of almost 200 political operatives, lobbyists, fundraisers, political scientists, and other people with ties to Florida's political scene:

  • A plurality of 43 percent said Biden will earn the Democratic presidential nomination, with 23 percent saying it will go to Harris.
  • 16 percent said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will be selected to represent the party in the November 2020 election.
  • 75 percent said the primary in Florida will play a role in who earns the Democratic nomination.

"Joe Biden is the ONLY option that the Democrats have to appeal to moderates, independents, and disaffected Republicans who are sick of Trump," a Democrat wrote in the survey. "Joe Biden can appeal to every side of the spectrum and has the experience and qualifications that NO other Democrat running for the White House has, having actually served as vice president under the successful two-term run of the last Democrat in the White House, Barack Obama."

It was reported this week Biden is likely gearing up to announce his candidacy for president in the coming weeks.
