BERNIE SANDERS LEADS DONALD TRUMP BY WIDEST MARGIN OF ALL 2020 CANDIDATES: ELECTION POLL

Senator Bernie Sanders leads President Donald Trump by the widest margin of all the candidates in the Democratic Party's 2020 race when Americans are asked to choose in a face-off against the Republican incumbent, according to a poll.

SurveyUSA asked 4,069 registered voters nationwide how they would vote in an election today if Trump was pitted against each of the 2020 candidates in the Democratic race. The progressive Vermont independent came out on top.

The poll found that 52 percent of voters would choose Sanders and 43 percent Trump, giving the veteran senator a nine-point lead. Next was former vice president Joe Biden at 50 percent to Trump's 43 percent, a seven-point lead.

Michael Bloomberg, the media and financial data billionaire, also led Trump by seven points at 49 percent to 42 percent. Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Trump 48 percent to 45 percent, a three-point advantage.

Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is also ahead of Trump by three points, at 47 percent to 44 percent. The tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang is ahead of Trump by two points, at 46 percent to 44 percent.

The billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer is tied with Trump at 44 percent apiece, Democratic Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar loses to Trump by two points at 43 percent to 45 percent.

Democratic Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard loses to Trump by five points at 39 percent to 44 percent.

1. Michigan is the one midwestern state I'm not too worried about flipping.

 

That one should flip back fairly easily. Pennsylvania shouldnít be too much harder. Wisconsin is where I expect it to get really dicey.

6. Why Wisconsin? I would think PA would be harder to flip

 

Trump won PA by a much larger margin than WI. WI could be flipped just by increasing voter turnout, PA, not so much.

10. PA's got big cities in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania, and a more diverse population.

 

Wisconsin's population is much more homogeneous and with Milwaukee as it's only big city, there isn't as much of a chance to rack up a big total there that cancels out the rural vote.

21. But again, Trump's 2016 margin in PA was much larger than in WI

 

WI could be flipped just by maximizing student turnout in Milwaukee and Madison.

3. Reassuring

 

This looks more like the polls we saw last spring/summer, where nearly every Dem beat Trump. It's a little surprising to me Klobuchar isn't also beating him. Maybe she's still not as well known. She's been coming on strong in the last two months, hopefully that recognition will trickle down.

4. Thank you for this. All of our top candidates can win, not just Biden (even if his fans disagree).

 

I am sick of hearing the lies from Bidenís supporters that he is the only candidate who can win. It is simply not true and never has been.

In addition to the SurveyUSA poll in the OP, CNN also has a poll out today with all of our top candidates winning, even Klobuchar.

Now, if we can just get a former Republican to run third party...

17. Always seems to get lost in the posturing. STATE polls are all that matters.

 

And even then, never trust them 100%. Trumpers who are embarrassed by him will publicly SAY they're not voting for him but still will in the booth

11. Any headline which it written in all caps is suspect to me.

 

Bernie, thank you goddess, will not be the candidate.

16. We've come a long way from last week when the standard line was

 

"national polls are meaningless this far out!!!"




I guess national polls are now finally meaningful... at least until another one comes out that doesn't carry the narrative, and then they'll become meaningless again.
