Jennifer Palmieri, White House communications director under President Barack Obama, said the 2020 female candidates are having a hard time breaking out of the pack because there are very few woman politicians to compare them to beyond Hillary Clinton.
Female candidates “are just in a different place because they can’t remind us of a leader who we’ve seen before,” Palmieri, who was a spokeswoman for Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign, told the Post and Courier.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I don’t think that means that the women can’t break out later,” she said.
In the most recent average of polling data by RealClearPolitics, former Vice President Joe Biden had a huge lead over his Democratic rivals with 41.4% support. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., came in second with 14.6% support.
Warren garnered 8% support, and Harris followed closely behind with 7%. Klobuchar’s average was at 1.4%, and the other women were below 1%.
Gillibrand told CNN she thinks it’s “just gender bias” when asked if she felt underestimated.
