This news may be the single most important thing that will rally President Trump’s base in the months ahead. A Fox News poll that was released on Thursday showed President Trump losing head-to-head matchups against four of the top Democratic presidential primary contenders.
The poll found that Trump only had 39 percent support among registered voters in head-to-head matchups against Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The poll revealed Sanders beating Trump with 48 percent, Warren winning over Trump with 45 percent and Harris winning with 46 percent support.
Former Vice President Joe Biden at this point would beat Trump in the theoretical matchup with 50 percent support among those surveyed, compared to Trump’s 38 percent.
Among the group of Democratic primary contenders, Warren saw the largest gain in support in the poll. She had an 8 percent jump from last month’s survey. Warren, according to the poll, took second place behind Biden with the support of 20 percent of Democratic primary voters.
Sanders dropped to third, now at 10 percent in the poll and the only other candidate aside from Warren and Biden scoring double digit support among voters.
Biden dropped a little in the poll from a previous Fox News poll in July. He went from 33 percent to 31 percent, but remains the clear front-runner in the race according to the survey.
The Fox News poll was taken between Aug. 11-13 and contacted 1,013 registered voters on landlines and cellphones. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percent for all registered voters, and 4.5 percent for Democratic primary voters.
