In a surprising callback to the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton emerged as the frontrunner among Democratic voters in a new Harvard-Harris national poll this week.

Clinton, who has mounted two unsuccessful bids for the presidency in two out of the last three elections, pulled ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden by one percentage point in the poll. Without Clinton's name in the ring, Biden was the clear frontrunner, beating his nearest competitor Bernie Sanders by 13 points.

🔦 Clinton has indicated that she is not planning to run this year, though she has claimed that she is under "enormous pressure" to run, and is being "deluged" with requests to do so.
