The Morning Consult/Politico survey, which was released Wednesday, found that Biden carried an 11-point lead among registered voters in a hypothetical match-up against Trump. Sanders held a 10-point lead in a match-up against the president. 

In the match-up between Biden and Trump, 44 percent of voters said they'd choose the former vice president, while 33 percent said they'd vote for Trump. Twenty-four percent of respondents said they were undecided. 


Sanders carried 42 percent of the vote in his match-up against Trump. Thirty-two percent of respondents said they'd vote for Trump if he faced Sanders, with 26 percent saying they were undecided.

Morning Consult noted that Trump did not receive more than a third of the vote in any of the hypothetical 2020 match-ups. The poll's release comes just a day after a Quinnipiac University survey showed Trump trailing several candidates nationally. He trailed Biden by 13 points in a hypothetical match-up, according to the poll. 

“It’s a long 17 months to Election Day, but Joe Biden is ahead by landslide proportions,” Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said.


Trump on Wednesday denounced the "fake news" media over reports that his internal polling showed he was trailing Biden. 

"The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today. Thank goodness we can fight back on Social Media. [Their] new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers)," Trump tweeted.

The Morning Consult/Politico survey was conducted between June 7 and June 9 among a national population of 1,991 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
