Daily Kos, the progressive blog that's long been a fixture on the left, is out with its first presidential straw poll of the 2020 cycle.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the clear leader, with 22 percent, with former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, California Sen. Kamala Harris, former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders bunched up behind her. O'Rourke has 15 percent support, Harris and Biden are tied at 14 percent, and Sanders is at 11 percent.

The progressive organization says it'll repeat the straw poll every two weeks, switching out the names of the bottom-two finishers.

The poll isn't scientific—anyone who visited the Daily Kos website could vote (one vote per computer), and the blog told NBC News that it sent out the straw poll to a large segment of its email list to give it additional play.

But even with that caveat, there are some interesting takeaways here.

Unlike national polls that largely measure name ID this early on, the Daily Kos figures give a snapshot of what already-engaged progressive activists are thinking. What stood out the most to us, though, was the low standing for Bernie Sanders. It’s an alarm bell for his team that he’s struggling with folks who should be his ideological allies.

It's bizarre how Bernie is bleeding support even in progressive communities that once heavily promoted him. He can't pick up establishment votes, so he'd need a consolidated progressive vote to win.

Why the hell are progressives backing Joe Biden, do they not pay attention to him?

This is such a strange result that I suspect it needs to be disregarded particularly.

They like Obama. Therefore, Biden is like a second Obama. That is their logic, seriously.

As for Sanders, there is concern that he is too old to run. Even though Biden is only a few years younger.

Kossacks aren't representative of any movements within the party.

How is there any energy for Warren?

This race will change dramatically with whatever Biden decides. If he doesn't run, who will his massive base flock to? Beto? Harris? Booker? Brown?

I wasn't under the impression that progressives loved Obama. I mean you could do a lot worse, but he's pretty much an establishment centrist Democrat. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what a "progressive" is in this context?

They’ve been pushing Beto, Harris and Warren hard over the past weeks. Now, a poll comes out with sanders on the bottom.

The vast majority of progressives loved Obama.

The Internet gives a very skewed look at what the progressive base actually entails.
