Recent Poll: It's Obviously Trump Vs. Biden in 2020
It’s looks like it will be former Vice President Joe Biden against President Trump in 2020, if a new poll reflects Democratic voters accurately.
Mallory Newall, the director of research at Ipsos Public Affairs, said, "Biden has seen a little bit of a bump from his announcement, anywhere from 12 to 15 percentage points in most polls that I've seen. I think his standing is strong at this point but again, you have to keep in mind that he is by far the best known in the race."
As The Hill notes, “Polls taken since the former vice president's official declaration have shown him receiving support in the upper 30s to lower 40s, about twice as much as Sanders, his next closest rival.”
Biden’s numbers seem to be stable despite many blows he has taken recently, including his son Hunter’s reported connection to a Ukrainian political corruption scandal. The New York Times reported that new information showed recently “how Hunter Biden and his American business partners were part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration."
