The insiders have been "figuring out if there’s a path financially and politically," according to the news website.

One anonymous Democrat told BuzzFeed the discussions felt "more real" than in the past. But a former Gore advisor, Roy Neel, told the website that a 2016 campaign was "extremely unlikely."

The news outlet noted that Gore has "not made any formal or informal moves toward running" and did not reply to a BuzzFeed email asking him about the supposed discussions.
