Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren Can Both Beat Trump, Poll Shows

A poll conducted after the fourth Democratic debate this month showed that the majority of Democratic voters believe that both former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren are capable of beating President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

The poll showed that 60 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters thought Biden could defeat Trump, while 59 percent thought Warren could beat him. Fewer than half of the voters who responded, or 48 percent, thought Sen. Bernie Sanders could win.

In addition, 71 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters could identify two or more candidates who they could see triumphing over Trump, the Huffington Post/YouGov poll released Tuesday showed. The figure went down to 53 percent for voters who could name three or more candidates able to beat Trump.

"When the question is about who has the highest chance of winning, Biden continues to dominate," Huffington Post polling editor Ariel Edwards-Levy wrote in a report about the data.

Edwards-Levy said that "Warren stands out as a potential consensus candidate, both garnering the broadest enthusiasm and causing the least consternation among members of her party."

The results were similar to those in Quinnipiac University's latest poll, released Oct. 14, that demonstrated that 48 percent of voters had the most confidence in Biden. But the Quinnipiac poll found fewer than half that amount had confidence in Warren defeating Trump.

A poll by CNN and market research firm SSRS released Wednesday also revealed that most Democratic voters think Biden is the best 2020 primary candidate to handle foreign policy, the economy and health care, among major issues.

Trump has continued to insist that he has massive support. On Tuesday, for example, he tweeted that he has "95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. Thank you!"

He also has complained repeatedly on Twitter about Ukraine, blaming Democrats for the debacle.

"So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights," Trump tweeted Tuesday. "All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!"

The Huffington Post/YouGov poll surveyed 1,000 American adults Oct.16 and 17.
