The survey comes as Biden's campaign continues to tout the former vice president as the most electable out of the 2020 Democratic field.
"So yes, you know, your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, 'OK, I personally like so-and-so better,' but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump," Jill Biden, Joe Biden's wife, said last week.
The survey was conducted Aug. 24–26 among 1,448 registered voters.
