Biden, the current front-runner in the crowded Democratic field, has maintained a steady lead over Trump in the poll, beating the president by 10 points when the poll was conducted in July.

Among registered voters, Biden leads Trump by 15 points, and Sanders has a 9-point edge.

ABC News notes that the changes in the poll could be due to declines in Trump’s support rather than gains by any of the individual Democrats.

The survey found Trump has an unfavorable rating of 57 percent compared to a favorability rating of 40 percent.

The poll is in line with several national polls that have shown Trump trailing several Democratic candidates, most notably Biden.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the polls, instead referring to his own internal polling, which he says is more favorable. 

Trump on Wednesday slammed the poll in a tweet, calling it "a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners."

The Washington Post/ABC News poll was conducted over the phone from Sept. 2-5 and surveyed a random national sample of 1,003 adults. The margin of error for the poll is 3.5 percentage points.
