A poll in Michigan finds several 2020 Democratic White House hopefuls leading President Trump in hypothetical match-ups in the crucial battleground state, according to The Detroit News.

The Glengariff Group poll showed former Vice President Joe Biden with the widest lead, at 50 percent to Trump’s 43 percent, followed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 47 percent to 41 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with a 4-point lead, 49 percent to 45 percent.

Both Biden and Sanders have lost ground compared to another survey conducted in June, when they both led Trump in hypothetical Michigan match-ups, 53 percent to 41 percent. Bloomberg had not yet entered the race at the time of the earlier poll.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg both lead Trump in the new survey by 2 points, within its margin of error.

Pollsters also found intensity levels at historic highs for Democrats, Republicans and independents. 

“The more we do polling, the more the numbers look the same to me,” Glengariff founder Richard Czuba told the newspaper, noting the continued Democratic advantage in the state. He added that Trump could still win the state, depending on the Democratic nominee.

Trump’s 10,704-vote victory in Michigan in 2016 was the slimmest margin of the three pivotal states — Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — that swept him into the White House.

The new poll was conducted among 600 likely Michigan voters between Jan. 3 and Jan. 7. It has a 4-point margin of error.
