A new Quinnipiac poll is spelling bad news for President Donald Trump.
The university—which has an A- rating on FiveThirtyEight—indicates that top Democrats would defeat Trump in a general election were it held today.
Current projections show former Vice President Joe Biden winning by the largest margin at 13 points, followed by Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) by nine points, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) by eight points, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) by seven points, followed by South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker by five points.
New 2020 head-to-heads in national Quinnipiac poll just out:
Biden 53%, Trump 40%
Sanders 51%, Trump 42%
Harris 49%, Trump 41%
Warren 49%, Trump 42%
Buttigieg 47%, Trump 42%
Booker 47%, Trump 42%

After the 2016 election, it may be difficult to trust polls—especially with over a year before the election.
Nonetheless, the poll indicates a promising trend—if it can remain consistent. However, many think that Trump has bungled so much of his presidency, it won’t be a tough race.

Others reminded people that votes are, far and away, more important than polls.
Idc what the polls say. Vote as if we’re losing.

It won't matter if nobody votes (or if they aren't allowed to vote).

These poll results mean nothing. It'll tighten as the election nears. Let's not get overconfident.

As the 2020 election grows nearer, the race will likely tighten. A recent CNN poll shows that over half of Americans believe Trump will win reelection.
