There is a reason that Trump has focused the bulk of his most pointed criticism for the 2020 presidential election at former Vice President Joe Biden, and the latest Quinnipiac University poll shows why. Not only is Biden still the frontrunner among Democratic candidates, even though the gap between them is narrowing, and polls show that he’s beating the pants off Trump in head-to-head matchups.
Quinnipiac has more bad polling news for Trump. These are national head-to-heads:

The divide is, just as it was in 2016, both racial and gendered as much it is determined by party. Among women, support for Biden soars above Trump, while men are fairly evenly divided between the two. Trump has also evenly divided white voters, while black and Latino voters are standing behind the Democratic frontrunner.
‘In the Trump-Biden matchup, women back Biden 60 – 34 percent, as men are divided with 47 percent for Biden and 46 percent for Trump. White voters are divided with 47 percent for Trump and 46 percent for Biden. The Democrat leads 85 – 12 percent among black voters and 58 – 33 percent among Hispanic voters.’
in a Wall Street survey this spring, 70% of institutional investors forecast Trump's re-election in 2020
but a new Quinnipiac Poll shows Joe Biden leading the incumbent by double-digits. All 5 other Dems tested, from Warren to Buttigieg, led Trump toohttps://t.co/JlgSkSco6r

The numbers also clearly show that Biden is not the only Democratic candidate capable of toppling Trump’s reign. Although Biden has been far ahead in previous polls, those numbers are narrowing for a number of other candidates, and at least five other candidates top Trump in head-to-head matchups by more than the margin of error.
‘In other matchups, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over President Trump 51 – 42 percent;
California Sen. Kamala Harris ahead of Trump 49 – 41 percent;
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tops Trump 49 – 42 percent;
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg edges Trump 47 – 42 percent;
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker by a nose over Trump 47 – 42 percent.
New Quinnipiac polls show Biden up 4 in Texas, and Trump approval at minus-1
It's a reminder that the possibility of a Dem breakthrough in Texas has been a little overlooked https://t.co/H5Dq4xc164

Most importantly, these polls show that Democratic voters are determined to make 2020 a repeat of the 2018 successes in the midterms. Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, says that:
‘The head-to-head matchups give this heads up to President Donald Trump’s team: Former Vice President Joseph Biden and other Democratic contenders would beat the president if the election were held today. Leads range from Biden’s 13 percentage points to thin five-point leads by Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Cory Booker…It’s a long 17 months to Election Day, but Joe Biden is ahead by landslide proportions.’
If the election for president were being held today …
Trump (R) 40%
Biden (D) 53%
