Sanders was supported by 49 percent of poll respondents, compared to 45 percent for Trump, while Warren and Harris led 49 percent to 46 percent for Trump, in a hypothetical general election contest.

Both Biden and Sanders held strong leads over the president among independent voters, according to the poll, with both men winning more than 50 percent of independent voters in head-to-head match-ups with Trump.

Warren, meanwhile, struggled in that demographic, winning the support of just 47 percent of independent voters to 45 percent for Trump.

The match-up polling measured responses from 848 registered voters collected from Aug. 22-30, with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
