Poll: Trump trails Biden, Sanders, Warren in Wisconsin match-ups

President Trump trails a trio of potential Democratic presidential nominees among voters in Wisconsin, according to a poll released Monday.

An Emerson College Polling survey showed that Trump lags behind former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and runs even with a few other Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Trump is running neck-and-neck with Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) and narrowly trails former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) by 2 percentage points, the survey found.

Democrats lost more support among voters than Trump when former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz was inserted into the hypothetical match-ups. Biden dipped to 51 percent with Schultz in the mix, with Trump sliding to 45 percent.

Schultz is mulling a presidential run as an Independent.

Thirty-nine percent of those surveyed chose Sanders as their top choice among Democratic candidates, followed by Biden, who was the favorite of 24 percent of respondents.

Monday’s poll surveyed 775 registered voters in Wisconsin from March 15-17 and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

O’Rourke entered the race last week, joining declared candidates like Sanders, Warren, Harris, Klobuchar and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Biden is considered a near certainty to jump into the race as well, though he has not announced his intentions.

Trump won Wisconsin in 2016, narrowly beating out Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to become the first Republican to win there since 1984. The state will be a key battleground in the 2020 race.

Democrats took control of the governor’s mansion and held on to their Senate seat in statewide elections in last year, and the party will hold its 2020 national convention in Milwaukee.
