The president of the United States, Donald Trump, would lose the elections of 2020 against any of the four main Democratic candidates; former vice president Joe Biden and senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, according to a poll published on Sunday by NBC News / Wall Street Journal.
In the first big poll before next year’s election, Trump, Biden would get 9 points of advantage to Trump (51 versus 42 percent) among registered voters, a difference above the margin of error of the survey, + / -3.5 percentage points
Senator Bernie Sanders, independent by Vermont, would bring Trump a 7-point lead (50 to 43 percent) while Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, would maintain a five-point lead (48 to 43 percent)
California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris would win a hypothetical election against Trump by only one point of difference, 45 to 44 percent.
Although there are still more than 200 days left until the Iowa caucus in February – the first major date for the Democratic primary – and the elections are held in November next year, Trump, who only holds 45 percent in the polls on the approval of his work, now gets worse results than his predecessor, Barack Obama, at this point of re-election.
In an NBC / WSJ poll conducted in August 2011, Obama maintained a 1-point lead over the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney: 46 percent to 45 percent. However, Obama ended up winning the general election by 4 points, 51 percent to 47 percent. (Europa Press)
