Poll: Biden edges Trump in Florida

A new poll finds former Vice President Joe Biden with a small lead over President Trump in Florida, a battleground state Trump narrowly won in 2016.

A Mason-Dixon survey released Tuesday finds Biden with a 2 percentage point advantage over Trump’s 45 percent. The poll has a 4-point margin of error.

Trump leads the other three top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, with a 4 point advantage over South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), a 5-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and a 9-point lead over Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton by 1.2 points in Florida in 2016.

The Mason-Dixon poll found that Biden was the only candidate with a positive favorability rating: 45 percent favorable to 41 unfavorable. Trump was underwater, at 46 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable.

In a hypothetical head-to-head match-up, Trump leads Biden by 10 points among men but trails the former vice president by the same amount among women.

Biden garnered 92 percent support among black voters and 61 percent among Hispanics. Trump leads with white voters by a 58-33 margin over Biden.

The Mason-Dixon survey of 625 registered voters in Florida was conducted Dec. 11–16.
