According to a new survey released on Tuesday, President Biden leads Marianne Williamson by more than 70 points among Democratic primary voters.
In a Morning Consult survey, 77% indicated they would support Biden in a Democratic primary or caucus, whereas only 4% said they would back Williamson after her candidacy launch last weekend.
On Saturday, Williamson formally began her second longshot candidacy for the Democratic nomination.
According to the study, more than half of Democratic primary voters had never heard of Williamson, and her appeal was limited among those who were familiar with the self-help book.
Twenty percent of Democrats said they liked Williamson, while 13 percent said they didn’t.
According to the study, the remaining 15% had heard of the Democratic candidate but had no opinion on her.
Williamson charged the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Sunday with manipulating the primary system in favor of Biden by rearranging the timetable.
The revised primary timetable, which Biden advocated for, will put South Carolina first in the nation. Biden’s victory in South Carolina in 2020 was critical to his eventual Democratic candidacy.
Williamson’s presidential ambition appears to have been mostly disregarded by Biden and other Democrats.
Morning Consult polled 829 possible Democratic primary voters between March 3 and March 5, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
Williamson has been involved in politics in addition to her role as a self-help author.
She ran for Congress in the past, and she also ran for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2020. During her presidential campaign, she focused on issues such as reparations for slavery, ending mass incarceration, and creating a Department of Peace.
