According to a new poll, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are the two front-runners for the Democratic 2020 candidates.
And, according to the same poll by Fox News, they would both beat President Trump in the general election.
Reminder: remember how accurate the polls were in 2016?
It’s important to not look too deep into these polls considering Hillary Clinton was supposed to demolish then candidate Trump in the 2016 election but she ended up losing in a landslide.
Check out what Fox News reported:
Democratic primary voters were read a list of 20 announced and potential candidates for the 2020 nomination. Biden is the top choice at 31 percent, followed by Sanders at 23 percent.
California Sen. Kamala Harris (8 percent) and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (8 percent) make up a second tier. They are followed by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (4 percent), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (4 percent), and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (2 percent).
The other candidates are the political equivalent of a 16th seed — they receive less than two percent.
Eleven percent are unsure of their picks.
Men, women, whites, non-whites, college graduates, and non-graduate Democratic primary voters all put Biden first and Sanders second. Sanders has the edge among those under age 45, while Biden is first for those 45 and over.
Democratic primary voters are more likely to support a candidate they think can beat Trump (51 percent) than the candidate they like the most (36 percent).
Democrat voters have made it clear that they care less about voting for the candidate they like and care more about voting for the candidate that they think can beat President Trump. This is pretty sad if you think about it because they are basically saying that they hate the President more than they like their candidate.
“Democratic primary voters would welcome Biden into the field, should he run,” says Chris Anderson a Democratic pollster , who conducts the Fox News Poll. “They prioritize beating Trump, and as of now Biden fares best of the more widely known Democratic candidates against Trump.”
Here’s what the Fox report added:
The hypothetical head-to-heads among registered voters show support for Trump stays between 40-42 percent against each Democrat tested. He tops both Harris (39-41 percent) and Warren by 2 points (40-42 percent).
Sanders has a 3-point edge over the president (44-41 percent), but Biden performs best, topping Trump by 7 points (47-40 percent).
The head-to-head match-ups between Trump and Sanders, Harris, and Warren are within the poll’s margin of sampling error. Biden’s lead is just outside it.

Republican Daron Shaw who also runs the Fox News polls stated:
There is ambivalence at this early stage of the nomination process. Democrats want Trump out any way possible, but they also have a set of public policy preferences that would have been considered way outside of the mainstream even 10 years ago. This has major implications for all candidates and especially for Biden. Democrats like him, they want him to run, and are likely to be impressed Biden currently runs well against Trump, but do they think winning the White House depends on him?
If not, the rationale for his candidacy is unclear.
This thought process by the Left is pretty disturbing considering they care more about obstructing President Trump than selecting the best candidate for our country.
