Any Generic Democrat Will Do! Poll Shows Unnamed Dem Beats Joe Biden in Beating Trump

September 18, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

A new poll out Wednesday reveals that a generic Democratic candidate has a better chance than former Vice President Joe Biden of beating President Donald Trump.

The new Morning Consult/Politico poll (pdf) shows that if the 2020 election were held today, 44 percent of voters would choose Biden, while 37 percent would pick Trump, giving the former vice president a 7-point edge.

If the choice were between re-electing Trump and a nameless Democratic candidate, however, 48 percent said they’d back the Democratic candidate and just 35 percent would pick Trump, a 13-point difference.

The online survey of 1,993 registered voters was conducted July 26-30, a week after Trump said, “I dream about Biden” being the Democratic presidential candidate in 2020 and argued that President Barack Obama “took him out of the garbage heap.”
