In the matchup between Biden and Trump, 49 percent of voters said they favored the former vice president. Thirty-nine percent said they'd vote for Trump.

The poll did not survey hypothetical matchups between Trump and other Democratic presidential candidates. 

The survey showed that voters' opinions regarding a Biden-Trump matchup are unchanged. A similar Fox News poll conducted in June found the former vice president with a 10-point lead over Trump.  

In addition to hypothetical matchups, the poll found that 56 percent of Democratic primary voters say that voting for a candidate who can defeat Trump is more important than voting for one who will fundamentally change the way the economy works. Forty-one percent of primary voters said the opposite. 

Biden has remained the favorite among the massive 2020 Democratic presidential primary field, though recent polls have shown Warren and Harris as formidable opponents. 

The Fox News poll was conducted with Beacon Research and Shaw & Company from July 21 to 23 among a national population of 1,0004 voters. The margin of error is 3 percentage points. Its margin of error is 4.5 percentage points for Democratic primary voters.
