The presidential field is well stocked with women, people of color and millennials, but a majority who said they would vote in a Democratic primary thought candidates who were white, middle-aged and male would be the party’s best bet for defeating Trump.  https://lat.ms/2IpVmst 

According to a national poll, conducted with @USCDornsife, female, black and Latino presidential candidates all still face hurdles despite Democrats’ celebration of diversity in their ranks.  https://lat.ms/2IpVmst 

Although voters preferred a middle-age nominee in the abstract, when they were asked about specific candidates, majorities chose the two oldest candidates — Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders — as the ones mostly likely to beat Trump.  https://lat.ms/2Ip6DsZ

Kamala Harris and Beto O’Rourke were given roughly the same odds as Warren. Booker, Buttigieg and Klobuchar were judged less likely to win.
