A new poll has some good news for Joe Biden that sets him apart from the 2020 Democratic field yet again: He’s the only candidate who leads Donald Trump in a hypothetical match-up outside the margin of error.

Mr Biden, who leads the Democratic field in virtually every poll by 10 or more points, has solidified his position as the front-runner to take on Mr Trump, and it appears he could easily take on the president in 2020, according to the new poll from Fox News.

According to that poll, Mr Biden leads Mr Trump in a hypothetical match up among registered voters by 11 points, receiving 49 per cent of the vote compared to 38 per cent for Mr Trump.

Of course, other candidates fare well against Mr Trump as well, just not at that level.

Bernie Sanders, for instance, leads Mr Trump by 5 points, while Elizabeth Warren leads by 2 points. Kamala Harris ties with Mr Trump, and Pete Buttigieg finds himself just one point behind.

In the match ups between Democrats, Mr Biden leads the way with 39 per cent support, while 17 per cent goes to Mr Sanders, 9 per cent goes to Ms Warren, 6 per cent to Mr Buttigieg, and 5 per cent to Ms Harris. In addition, Beto O’Rourke attracted 4 per cent support, and Cory Booker got 3 per cent.

The Fox news poll was conducted between 11 May and 14 May, and the survey contacted 1,008 registered American voters by home. The margin of error was 3 per cent.
