Fox News Poll: Biden Expands Lead Among 2020 Democrats to 18 Points

Former Vice President Joe Biden expanded his lead among 2020 Democrats in the latest Fox News poll released Thursday. Biden’s lead now stands at 18 percentage points over his closest competition, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

According to the survey, 35 percent of respondents said their top pick for the Democratic nomination was Biden, while just 17 percent said the same for Sanders, down from 23 percent in March.

Sanders wasn’t the only candidate to see his support drop off in this month’s Fox News poll. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who had been at 8 percent, dropped to 5 percent.

Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) jumped from 4 percent in March to 9 percent in Thursday’s poll. And South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) jumped from 1 percent to 6 percent – good enough for fourth place.

Defeating President Trump remains the top priority of Democratic primary voters, according to the poll, which found that 73 percent listed a victory in November 2020 as their top priority over policy decisions.

51 percent want to see someone who shares their views take office by comparison, and 47 percent want someone with “new ideas” to take office.

The poll, conducted between May 11-4, has a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percentage points.
