in the vicinityVideoHow would the Democrats react to Biden vs. Bernie for the presidential nomination?

So many Democrats running for President, the race feels like a March Madness bracket. If it were, the number 1 seed of the former Vice-President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would be.

To beat either favored would-be President Donald Trump in the Finale 2020, according to the latest Fox News poll.


Primaries, voters were read a list of 20 announced and potential candidates for the 2020 nomination. Biden is the top choice with 31 percent, followed by Sanders at 23 percent.

California, Sr., Kamala Harris (8 percent) and former Texas Rep. Beto O’rourke (8 percent) make up the second rank. They are followed by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (4 percent), and Massachusetts sen. Elizabeth Warren (4 percent) and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (2 percent).

The other candidate, the political equivalent of a 16 seed, you receive less than two percent.

Eleven percent are unsure of their picks.

Men, women, white, non-white, college graduates and non-diploma-primaries voters all Biden first, and Sanders ‘ second. Sanders has the edge in the under 45 years of age, while Biden is first of all for those 45 and older.

Primaries, voters are more likely to support a candidate, you can think Trump (51 percent) as the candidate you like the most (36 percent).

While Biden is not technically declared, slipped on it and said that he is racing in the 2020. An official April announcement is expected.

Two-thirds of Democratic primary voters want Biden to run, and he is the top-beat choice under which, the prioritization of trump, followed by Harris, Sanders, and O’rourke.

Among those who say that it is more important to vote for the candidate that you could as the one who will win, Sanders is the first choice, followed by Biden.

“Primaries, the voters would welcome a Biden in the field, he can run,” says democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News poll with Republican Daron Shaw. “You prioritize beat the trump card, and now Biden rates, the best of the more widely known democratic candidates against Trump.”

The survey also primaries, voters will ask about the policy. Majorities are “very” likely to back a candidate who supports Medicare for all ” (67 percent) and 70 percent tax rate on income over $10 million (53 percent). Less than 4 out of 10 are very likely to vote for a candidate supporting the delivery of the Green New Deal (37 percent), payment of reparations for the descendants of the slaves (31 per cent) and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE cream (25 percent).

The hypothetical head-to-heads among the registered voters show support for trump is between 40-42% against any Democrat tested. He fills both Harris (39-41 per cent) and Warren by 2 points (40-42 percent).

Sanders has a 3-point lead over the President (44-41 percent), but Biden performs best, covering Trump by 7 points (47-40 percent).

The head-to-head matchups between Trump and Sanders, Harris and Warren are in the survey, the margin of sampling error. Biden, the guide is only on the outside.

“It is the ambivalence in this early Phase of the nomination,” says Shaw. “Democrats want to Trump every possible way, but you also have a number of public policy preferences, were considered way outside the mainstream 10 years ago. This has significant implications for all candidates, and especially for Biden. Democrats like him, do you want to run to him, and are likely to be impressed with Biden, currently running against trump, but do you think, will win the White house depends on it? If not, the reasons for his candidacy is unclear.”

Finally, 41 percent of the primary voters would be more likely to be Trump voted out of office in 2020, as accused. That’s the equivalent of 41 percent, the better he is indicted and removed before the election.

Now that would be a real bracket-buster.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,002 randomly selected voters nationwide, including 403 primaries voters, and was conducted under the joint direction of Beacon research (D) (formerly Anderson Robbins Research) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from March 17-20, 2019. The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters and plus or minus five percentage points for Democratic primary voters.
