POLL: Quinnipiac Poll Shows Top Democrats Defeating Trump in National Head to Head Race

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.

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.

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.

Vote, y’all.
