Donald Trump Leads Five Democratic Frontrunners by Double Digits in Alabama Poll

President Donald Trump is forecast to beat five leading Democrats by double digits in Alabama when voters cast their ballots at the November presidential election, a new poll has found.

The survey published by WBRC and conducted by the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy firm found the president held strong leads over primary frontrunners Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg, as well as former frontrunners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

Trump was also found to have a double digit lead over former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who fared best against the commander-in-chief despite being a late entrant in the 2020 race.

The Alabama poll recorded a 14-point gap between the billionaire and the commander-in-chief, with Trump polling at 54 percent and Bloomberg and 40 percent.

By comparison, a 27-point margin stood between Sen. Warren of Massachusetts and the president, while 23 points separated her progressive rival Sen. Sanders and Trump.

Moderate candidates Buttigieg and Biden polled slightly better in the Yellowhammer State, with the commander-in-chief beating them by 21 and 20 points respectively.

While the headline results from the WBRC/Alabama Daily News poll of the deep red state are not likely to come as a shock, it is worth noting that all five candidates were projected to fare better in the Republican stronghold than Hillary Clinton did during the 2016 election.

The former secretary of state lost the Alabama race by a little less than 28 points, a margin six points wider than the one between former President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012.

Newsweek has contacted Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy for comment on their polling, and will update with any response.

A total of 625 registered voters in Alabama were interviewed for the survey, which has a four-point margin of error.

The results of the Yellowhammer State poll came a day after a national survey by Quinnipiac University published on Monday found that every top Democratic candidate was leading President Trump in head-to-head matchups.

Bloomberg performed better than his primary rivals, with nine points standing between himself and Trump while only four points separated the commander-in-chief from Buttigieg and Warren.

Quinnipiac University data also showed that Sen. Sanders enjoyed an eight-point lead while former vice president Biden came seven points ahead of the president.

"Is the Bloomberg camp prepping the white horse for him to ride to the rescue? Maybe not yet, but without setting foot in Iowa or New Hampshire, he is suddenly a looming shadow over the primary field," Quinnipiac analyst Tim Malloy said in a release.
