Former Vice President Joe Biden leads with registered Pennsylvania Democrats at 39 percent. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders polled second at 13 percent. O’Rourke registered at two percent and Castro is at less than one percent.
O’Rourke doesn’t hit double digits in any population category in any of the Democrat primary field comparisons for Pennsylvania voters. Castro doesn’t register above two percent in any subcategory of any of the field lineups.
These early polls are likely to change in the months ahead as an eye-popping 24 candidates currently compete for the Democratic nomination.
Perhaps the lone bright spot for O’Rourke in the latest Quinnipiac poll is that he is only two percent behind a hypothetical matchup with President Trump in Pennsylvania. However, O’Rourke is the only one of the top six Democrat challengers that trails Trump among Pennsylvania voters — with California Senator Kamala Harris being tied with Trump.
O’Rourke, who started a campaign re-set in a recent appearance on The View, held a major fundraiser Tuesday night in Houston.
He is slated for an upcoming CNN Town Hall at 9:00 p.m. CT on Tuesday, May 21.
