Complaints surfacing about former Vice President Joe Biden and his actions around women haven't hurt his ratings among voters, who continue keep him at the top of the list of 2020 presidential race candidates even though he has not yet officially joined the race.

According to a new Morning Consult poll, Biden topped the list of candidates, netting 32 percent of voters who say they intend to participate in a Democratic Party primary or caucus next year, reports Politico.

His nearest contender was Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at 23 percent. No other candidates came close to Biden and Sanders:

  • Kamala Harris, 9 percent;
  • Beto O'Rourke, 8 percent;
  • Elizabeth Warren, 7 percent;
  • Pete Buttigieg, 5 percent;
  • Corey Booker, 4 percent;
  • Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, 2 percent.

Biden's score was down just one percentage point from a survey released last week. The latest poll, conducted from April 1-7, included 13,644 voters and carried a 1 percentage point margin of error.

Biden's support also remains strong in early voting states, reports Politico, after party leaders in said they do not believe the controversy about his interactions is enough to damage his candidacy, but they do wish he would quit joking about it.

“He has been acting the exact same way, as far as I know, for 30 years. It’s not anything that’s new or surprising for people who’ve been around him,” said Iowa Democratic strategist Jeff Link.  

But Judy Reardon, a longtime New Hampshire operative, said she does not think Biden's behavior disqualifies him, but it's also "not nothing."
