Democratic Straw Poll Results: VA Beach, Fairfax County, Alexandria

Biden wins VA Beach and Alexandria straw poll; Bloomberg wins Fairfax straw poll


With Virginia’s 2020 Democratic presidential primary tomorrow, there were straw polls held by three big Democratic committees – Virginia Beach on Saturday, Fairfax County and Alexandria on Sunday. See below for the results…unscientific as they are, of course.

P.S. By the way, it’s fascinating how Democratic committees’ straw poll results often (usually?) don’t match up with what you see on Facebook and Twitter.

P.P.S. According to former Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) Chair Dan Lagana, Bloomberg won the FCDC straw poll by “purchasing tickets & sending a campaign bus.”

Virginia Beach Democrats: Not sure what the full results were, but Joe Biden won it.

Fairfax County Dems: Bloomberg (68 votes), Biden (29 votes), ( Klobuchar (26 votes), Warren (18 votes)

Alexandria Dems: Biden (48 votes), Warren (39 votes), Bloomberg (14 votes), Sanders (13 votes), Klobuchar (8 votes)
