- Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg all beat Trump far beyond the margin of error

Five Democratic primary candidates could beat Donald Trump if general elections were to be held today, according to a survey on Wednesday.
In the hypothetical one-on-one match-ups with the president, leader Joe Biden had the most likely chance of being victorious in the new Quinnipiac University poll.
Of the registered voters who responded to the poll, 54 percent said they would vote for the former vice president over the 38 percent who said they would vote for Trump.
The survey, held on August 21 – 26, asked respondents only about head-to-head matchups with the five top-polling candidates in popularity with likely Democratic primary voters.
Quite far beyond the 3.1 percent margin of error, respondents also said they would vote for Trump on Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.
Sanders came in second after beating Trump, earning only one percent less than Biden with 53 percent against 39 from Trump.
Warren defeated Trump 52-40 percent, Harris 51-40 percent and Buttigieg 49-40 percent.
Five Democrats defeated Trump by nine percentage points or more in a general election if it were to be held today, a survey revealed on Wednesday
Former vice president Joe Biden probably beats Trump and deserves 54 percent support compared to 38 percent of Trump
Of the 1,422 respondents, 29 percent identify Republicans and 34 percent Democrats, the remaining 37 percent are independent or have no party relationship.
A previous Politico / Morning Consult opinion poll published last week showed that only two candidates defeated Trump in hypothetical general election matchups: Biden and Sanders.
Despite the upset, Trump continues to promote his approval ratings, especially within the GOP.
On Tuesday, he posted a tweet that praised his 94 percent approval among Republican voters, while bashing those who challenged him in the 2020 primaries.
Quinnipiac notes that the low number could be for Trump's exhausting popularity among white female voters.
In 2016, that voice demographic key was the key to Hillary Clinton's winning Trump, but today white women are going for the Democratic candidate with double digits in every scenario presented.
The poll noted that a major demographic Trump is losing support in white female voters. In any case, white female registered voters said they would vote for a Democratic candidate over Trump
In each of the five matchups, 54-56 percent of white women said they would vote for the Democratic candidate, while between 34-40 percent said they would go for Trump.
The poll was released on August 28, which is the deadline for candidates to qualify for the third primary debates in Houston, Texas next month.
The debates in September require that candidates reach 2 percent in four polls approved by the Democratic National Commission and collect 130,000 unique donors with at least 400 donors from 20 different states.
At the time of publication of these articles, only 10 candidates were eligible for the 20 available slots.
All five candidates who beat Trump in the polls qualified for the debates.
