Will Cory Booker drop out before the New Jersey primary?

Junior Senator from New Jersey and former Newark Mayor Cory Booker declared his Democratic presidential primary candidacy early in 2019, bringing a strong resume and an impressive number of endorsements from New Jersey politicians. As of mid-July 2019 he stands at around 2% in the polling averages. It is still early, but the field is crowded and many other strong candidates have a path to the nomination.

New Jersey's primary will be in the very last round of voting, on June 2, 2020, less than two months from the party convention.

Will Cory Booker have dropped out of the Presidential race before voting opens in New Jersey's primary election?

This resolves positive if before the 2020 New Jersey Democratic primary, Cory Booker has claimed to no longer intend to participate in as a candidate in the 2020 presidential elections. The 2020 New Jersey primary is currently scheduled for June 2, 2020, but this could change. Resolution should be supported by credible news reports.


Metaculus help: Predicting

Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.

Community Stats

Metaculus help: Community Stats

Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.

When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
