As the world awaits what AG William Barr will present to lawmakers and the public from the now-completed Mueller report into Russian interference in our 2016 presidential election, Trump can continue to bow his head in shame over this news.
According to a new poll, which is a hypothetical 2020 general election matchup, Former Vice President Joe Biden leads over Donald Trump by 10 points.
The poll was conducted by Emerson College and released on Tuesday; per it’s results, it shows Biden’s support at 55% and Trump’s at 45%.
This is very telling as Biden has yet to even officially announce that he will be running for President in the 2020 election.

However, should he decide to announce, all signs point to how Trump may need to reconfigure his 2020 re-election strategy; a strategy that has been a tireless machine since back in 2017.
Biden’s lead is not only over Trump, but also every likely and declared Democratic candidate. Per Gallup:
‘Near the end of Obama’s presidency, Biden’s popularity increased, peaking at 61% during his final days in office. Biden has retained most of that increase over the past two years.
‘Eight in 10 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents have a favorable opinion of Biden. As would be expected, Republicans and Republican leaners are much less positive toward him, although nearly one in three do view him favorably.’
Interesting insight from CNN‘s Harry Enten:
‘Democrats like Biden because he was the vice president to the most popular Democrat in the country, Barack Obama. Biden’s best chance of winning is not to run from his record. It’s merely to focus on his most recent record. Biden should point voters to his time as Obama’s number two. It’s far from a guarantee that it will work, though it really could help ameliorate the potential flaws of his past record in the Senate.’
Also per the Emerson College poll, Kamala Harris defeats Trump by 4 percentage points, and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders edge Trump by 2 percentage points. Trump does however, at this time, have an advantage over Beto O’Rourke: the poll has Trump leading over Beto 51 to 49 percent.
For the poll, 1,153 registered voters participated between March 17 and 18 and the poll has a margin of error at 2.8 percentage points.
