A new poll indicates that more than seven out of ten Democrat voters want former Vice President Joe Biden to pick a woman of color as his running mate.
Support for a woman of color as the Democrat vice-presidential nominee was shared broadly among all of the poll’s respondents.
It was also heavily favored by white (75 percent), black (60 percent), and Hispanic (81 percent) voters, overall.
The poll was conducted between June 25 through June 29 and has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points.
Given such thinking, and surveys showing Biden underperforming among black voters, many Democrats are pushing him to pick a woman of color to stabilize his standing.
