Former Vice President Joe Biden tops President Trump by 7 points in a hypothetical 2020 matchup, according to a new Politico–Morning Consult poll, THE HILL reports.
Forty-four percent of registered voters told pollsters they would support Biden in the next presidential election, compared to 37 percent of voters who said they would vote to reelect Trump.
The poll also found that a generic candidate would do better against Trump than Biden among registered Democrats: 89 percent said they would vote for a generic candidate from their own party, compared to 80 percent who said they would vote for Biden.
Seventy-eight percent of Republicans said they would vote Trump back into office.
Biden ran for president in 1998 and 2008, but dropped out quickly both times. The former Delaware senator has been floated as a 2020 contender, and a poll in June found that he would attract the highest support among Democratic voters of any candidate in the survey. Read more at THE HILL.
