The Quinnipiac University poll has 5 other Democrats leading Donald Trump 17 months out from next years general election….
The poll is just latest one showing at least for now?
Donald Trump’s second term chances are far from certain and Joe Biden is in the lead in besting him in a vote….
Every national poll in the last few months shows the same general result….
In a national head-to-head matchup, the poll found Biden taking 53 percent against 40 percent for Trump, with the poll’s assistant director describing it as a “landslide” margin.
Five other Democratic contenders also lead the president: Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hold healthy leads over Trump, with Sanders up by 9 points, Harris ahead by 8 and Warren leading by 7.
“It’s a long 17 months to Election Day, but Joe Biden is ahead by landslide proportions,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
Biden’s double-digit lead over Trump is largely driven by the gender gap. The former vice president edges Trump 47 percent to 46 among men. But among women, Biden leads by 26 points, 60 to 34.
Similarly, white voters are split evenly between the two, with Trump at 47 percent and Biden at 46. But Biden leads 85 to 12 among black voters and 58 to 33 among Hispanics.
Both candidates surpass 90 percent support from within their own parties, but independents break for Biden by a 58 to 28 margin.
National polls are not necessarily the best indicator for a general election, which will be fought in a handful of swing states.
In 2020, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin will be the primary battlegrounds….
