WASHINGTON — Cory who? More than half of U.S. voters don’t know U.S. Sen. Cory Booker well enough to form an opinion of him, and remainder are split over what they think of him.Those are the findings of a poll of the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, which also found President Donald Trump more unpopular than any of those who may try to run against him.Booker was rated favorably by 22 percent of registered voters and unfavorably by 26 percent, a difference covered by the survey’s margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.The Iowa caucuses are just one year away.

By Ed Mazza Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke may have lost his bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas, but his supporters say he’s not done yet. O’Rourke, who is giving up his House seat, may just be getting started. The Democrat’s backers are already urging him to run against President Donald Trump in 2020 despite the defeat on Tuesday. They consoled each other on Twitter, sent messages of support and shared their hopes for the future.
