Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by seven percentage points in a hypothetical matchup of the 2020 presidential race conducted by POLITICO and Morning Consult.

Among survey respondents, 44 percent said they would support Biden in the next presidential election, compared to just 37 percent of voters who said they would vote to reelect President Trump.

The poll of registered voters also found that a generic “unnamed” candidate would fare better than Biden among registered Democrats. Fully 89 percent of Democrats responding to the survey indicated they would prefer a generic candidate from their own party compared to just 80 percent who said they would vote for Biden.

The former vice president has been widely discussed as a possible 2020 presidential contender but he has never said he would run again for the highest office in the land. A poll in June showed him receiving more support than any other candidate in the survey among Democratic voters who participated.

On the Republican side, just 78 percent of registered GOP voters said they would vote to reelect Trump in 2020.

Trump and Biden have butted heads several times over the past few years. Biden said he would have “beat the hell out of” Trump in high school after he heard about the president’s degrading comments about women.

Biden has said he is not ruling out another run and will let voters know by the end of the year, but many people are skeptical given his age and the fact that he has previously run for president and been unsuccessful.

The poll also found there is broad support among both parties for the president’s promise to help American farmers impacted by his tariffs that have led to retaliation from China. Fifty-seven percent of voters overall approve the aid program.

Morning Consult Managing Director Tyler Sinclair said:

“President Trump’s decision to provide aid to farmers hurt by the trade war is a hugely popular move with rural voters. Sixty-three percent of rural voters support the assistance. Additionally, 30 percent of this group ‘strongly’ approve of Trump’s job performance overall.”

Concerning Trump’s trade policies, nearly one-third of all voters, 31 percent, say the United States has benefited less than other countries on free trade, while 26 percent say the country has benefited the same as other countries and 12 percent say the U.S. has benefited more.
