Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) saw his lead in a hypothetical match-up against President Trump slip in a new nationwide poll released Wednesday.
In the Morning Consult-Politico poll, Biden’s lead over Trump slipped to 11 points, down from 20 points in the same poll from last month.
The poll shows a growing strength for the president in a match-up against Biden, currently the Democratic 2020 front-runner, as Trump previously trailed Biden by as much as 28 points in a Morning Consult-Politico poll in June.
In particular, his lead nationally among independents has all but disappeared, evaporating from an 11-point lead among the group of voters in June to just a 1-point lead today.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) now only leads Trump by 2 percentage points in a hypothetical match-up gauged by the poll, down from an 8-point lead in June, while Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) trails the president by 1 point in her own head-to-head contest, unchanged from last month’s poll.
