Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would all beat Donald Trump in 2020, new poll suggests

Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders
Joe Biden still has the best chance of beating Donald Trump in a general election, but the performance gap between Biden and other top Democrats has closed substantially when it comes to one-on-one matchups with the commander-in-chief, according to a new poll.
The July NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey of 800 registered voters had Biden fairing best against Trump if the election were held today with 51 per cent of voters saying they'd support the former Vice President and just 43 per cent saying they'd support Trump in a hypothetical faceoff.

However, the same poll found Sanders would beat Trump 50 per cent to 43 per cent head-to-head. Warren would defeat Trump 48 per cent to 43 per cent, the poll determined.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would be neck-and-neck with Trump with 45 per cent support for the former prosecutor and 44 per cent for the former real estate mogul, according to the researchers.

The July NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey found Sanders would beat Trump 50 percent to 43 percent head-to-head. Warren would defeat him 48 percent to 43 percent. It's the first poll in the 2020 race to show Trump losing to a Democrat other than Biden by a credible margin

The July poll is the first in the 2020 race to show Trump losing to a Democrat other than Biden by a credible margin outside the margin of error, according to Real Clear Politics.
Biden's poll numbers in his bid to capture the Democratic nomination began plummeting less than a month after he officially threw his hat in the race on April 25, but 26 percent of poll respondents said he'd be their first choice over the field of other Democratic candidates.
Warren came in second in the Democratic nomination race with 19 percent support. Harris and Sanders tied for third with 13 percent.
Researchers interviewed respondents by phone from July 7-9 to generate the latest polling numbers. The margin of error for registered voters was plus or minus 3.46 percent. The Democratic nomination results had a margin of error of 4.9 percent.
