Meghan Markle emerged on top of a Democracy Institute poll listing potential candidates for the 2024 US Presidential race, even beating out the current US Vice President Kamala Harris, reported Express UK.

According to the outlet, nearly two-thirds of the poll respondents shared that they would choose a female candidate for the upcoming US elections in 2024, and more than a quarter of 1,500 prospective Democrat voters named Meghan as their top choice.

The results come months after current US President Joe Biden’s sister, Valerie Biden Owens, told Good Morning Britain that Meghan would ‘of course’ make a good presidential candidate in the future.

She said in May: “It’s wonderful to have women in politics, the more women we have, the better our democratic system will work. We embrace all women and we welcome her to come in and join the Democratic Party.”

The poll results also come days after Meghan and husband Prince Harry were announced as the recipients of a human rights award from the Robert F. Kennedy foundation.
