The general consensus regarding the top two Democrat challengers for the 2020 Democrat nomination is that Joe Biden would be a safer bet to beat Donald Trump while Bernie Sanders would have a more difficult time selling Americans on electing a socialist.
A new poll bears that out — but it comes as both Biden’s past and his party are busy destroying him.
Survey - Rasmussen - Friday - Trump - Lead
The survey, released by Rasmussen on Friday, shows Trump with a 3-point lead on Vermont’s Sen. Sanders. Biden, meanwhile, maintains a lead on the president.
“The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Sanders 47% to 44% among Likely U.S. Voters. But nine percent (9%) are undecided,” a statement from Rasmussen read.
Sanders - Vermont - Senator - Nomination - %
“Sanders, the longtime Vermont senator who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, earns just 74% support among voters in his own party. One-in-five Democrats (19%) opt for Trump who has the backing of 83% of Republicans in a matchup with Sanders.”
Biden, meanwhile, holds a 49 percent to 44 percent edge over Trump in the poll.
Democrats - Biden - Regard - Sanders - Rasmussen
“Democrats hold Biden in only slightly higher regard than Sanders,” Rasmussen announced. “But while 52% of unaffiliated voters have a positive opinion of the former vice president, 51% of these voters view Sanders unfavorably.”
The polling organization didn’t include any other candidates in the survey, saying that, due to the large size of the field, it is going “to run a series of matchups” for the next few weeks.
Numbers - Line - Polls - March - Fox
While it’s still early, the numbers are in line with other polls. A March Fox News poll showed both Biden and Sanders beating Trump, Biden by 7 percent and Sanders by 3 percent. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and California Sen. Kamala Harris, meanwhile, both lost to Trump by two points.
Do you think Joe Biden will win the nomination?
