Democrats are worried that they have a problem: The three people leading polls in the very early stages of their presidential race are all white men.
The party traditionally battles over identity politics and wants to be seen as promoting diversity.
Its last three nominees have been Barack Obama, who became the nations first African-American president, and Hillary Clinton, the first woman to win the popular vote.
Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Rep. Beto ORourke (D-Texas) are this years top-tier candidates, according to a recent and very early Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll.
It showed that 32 percent of those polled in Iowa favored Biden, while 19 percent preferred Sanders and 11 percent liked O'Rourke.
While some Democrats believe the early polls are merely a metric on name recognition, they say it defies the partys mission to be more diverse and more inclusive that the top three candidates are all white men.
Its almost like were moving backwards, said one Democratic strategist. We elected a black president in 2008 and 2012, we nominated a woman in 2016, so why are we now back with three white men at the top of the polls?
Democratic strategist Seth Bringman added that it definitely sends the wrong message about who our party is.
To be sure, a number of Democratic women and members of minority groups have expressed an interest in running for president.
The list includes Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Cory Booker (N.J.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), to name just some of the potential candidates.

Genitalia does worry libtard socialists.
It does not worry normal, grownup adults.
Their sexist asumptions are showing, careful enlightened openminded libtards.
More proof that Liberalism is a degenerate form of mental illness.
Oh yeah skin color worries them too.
They are admitting Beto is white? Wow!
Democrats may want a non-white to run for President.
After all, they won with a half black man and lost with an old white woman with white privilege.
However, Democrats may come to realize the only way to beat a white man is with another white man.
And I still say Biden tops their list.
This the ‘serious’ way that leftists look out for the wellbeing of our country. Counting candidates according to the amount of pigment in their skin.
Next thing we know they will be demanding DNA testing for everyone in order to put us into the proper group.
It’s hard not to scrape the bottom of the barrel for Dem candidates. They’re all stuck there. Not one is worth a bucket of warm spittle.
Betard is a white boy. Same BS that Yeb pushed because he’s married to a mexiclown.
Bushwick Bill of The Geto Boys and Occasional Kotex should get married. Bet they would spawn some wild-eyed pups.
Hey, I know what.
The dims could “get a show together” a la Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland movie.
And they could call it: No Country for White Men.
It will win an Oscar.
Yep, I thought he was one of those Mexican brownies, so not only is he a fake Mexican, he is a fake brownie.

Sounds like he came straight off one of the old Geraldo show.
I’m rooting for Cortez.
Surely, after she is inaugurated in January 2018, she can sign legislation lowering the POTUS minimum age, so that she can run in 2020.
