Poll Reveals What Would Happen If Joe Biden Challenged Donald Trump In A Presidential Election

That’s right folks. It’s that time again. It might seem like it was just last week that we had a Presidential election and somehow settled on an orange-haired billionaire to head up our government and lead the free world, but the next election cycle is now just around the corner and speculation is ramping up on all sides. The excitement just never stops in American politics.

Chatter about potential candidates for the 2020 Presidential race has been mainly focussed on the Democratic side, because President Donald Trump has promised multiple times that he will run for a second term. Oh, goody. As a result, as you’d expect, those on the GOP side of the debate have basically been either supporting Trump or keeping their heads down. Not to worry though, because there are plenty of Democratic rumours to go around.

The list of people who could potentially run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2020 is ridiculously long at the moment. Donald Trump has fired up left-wing politicians who had perhaps become somewhat complacent during the presidency of Barack Obama. Now, everyone wants to challenge him.

One of the inevitable frontrunners is Joe Biden. Having served a full eight years as Vice President under President Obama and in that time won over the hearts and minds of millions of Blue Americans up and down the country, it is not a huge surprise that his name is often at the top of the list of Democrats’ preferred candidates.

 

But how well would he actually do? How likely would candidate Biden actually be to unseat the incumbent President Trump? Well, the polling scientists over at Morning Consult teamed up with Politico to do some research and find out.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden has the upper hand in a hypothetical matchup against President Donald Trump, but he underperforms compared with a generic Democrat,” said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult’s co-founder and chief research officer. “Notably, 86 per cent of Democrats say they would vote for a generic Democrat over Trump, but only 78 per cent of Democrats say they prefer Biden over Trump.” Independent voters tilt away from the incumbent: 41 per cent would vote for Biden, and 26 per cent for Trump.

There you have it, folks. The research found that a lot of people who are unsure about the Democratic Party as a whole would still vote for Joe Biden. So a third Biden Presidential run might actually be a very good idea after all.
