Former Vice President Joe Biden is still the most likely Democrat to beat President Donald Trump in a hypothetical match-up.

Of the 1,001 voters surveyed, 49 percent said they support Sanders, nine percentage points more than Trump 40 percent, which is just a percentage difference from Biden & # 39; s leadership.

Earlier this year, Biden had a much larger lead among the 23 other Democrats who are active in the party's 2020 primary race. His lead slowly declined as other candidates became more widely known and took more votes in polls.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg also beat the president in mutual matches, but all won within the margin of error.

Warren has a two-point lead over Trump from 43 percent to 41 percent. Harris and Butgigieg are both one point up, 42-41 and 41-40 respectively.

None of the other candidates beat Trump in the poll.

At the same point in the 2016 election cycle, Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton was 17 points ahead of Trump.

Another poll released from CBS News on Sunday morning shows that Biden still holds his leading position in the busy Democratic candidate field.

Of the 16,224 registered voters surveyed by 18 early primary and caucus countries, 55 percent say they prefer Biden as the democratic candidate.

This poll produced a rarer result from Sanders who fell from the number 2 position, which he normally holds, to fourth place.

Warren earned 49 percent support and 45 percent supported Harris, while the more progressive candidate Sanders earned 43 percent support.
