Poll: Biden, Sanders hold double-digit lead on Trump in Pennsylvania


Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) both hold double-digit leads over President Trump in a hypothetical 2020 White House match-up in the state of Pennsylvania, according to a new poll.

An Emerson College survey released Friday found both men gaining 55 percent of the vote in a hypothetical general election battle with the sitting president, while many other Democrats held single-digit margins over the president in the state.

{mosads}Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) holds a four-point lead over Trump among respondents to the poll.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) also held a slim lead over the president in the poll, with the support of 51 percent of respondents to Trump’s 48 percent in their head-to-head race. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) also slightly led Trump in the poll, with support from 51 percent of voters compared to Trump’s 49 percent.

At issue for the president in the state is his job approval rating, which currently sits underwater, with 41 percent of those surveyed saying they approved of the job Trump is doing.

Overall, 55 percent of Pennsylvania voters surveyed said they “were not likely” to vote for the president in 2020, while 45 percent said they were likely to vote for Trump.

The Emerson College poll surveyed 808 registered voters in the state between March 26-28. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
