A new 2020 poll released hours before Donald Trump formally launches his re-election bid in Florida shows the president trailing Demcratic White House hopefuls Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the nation’s largest swing state.

The former vice president leads Trump among Florida voters by 50-41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday ahead of the president’s campaign kickoff rally at Orlando’s Amway Center.

Biden leads Trump by 'landslide proportions' in new national poll

Biden leads Trump by 'landslide proportions' in new national poll Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Trump by 13 points nationally, according to the latest Quinnipiac University survey.In a national head-to-head matchup, the poll found Biden taking 53 percent against 40 percent for Trump, with the poll's assistant director describing it as a "landslide" margin. Five other Democratic contenders also lead the president: Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hold healthy leads over Trump, with Sanders up by 9 points, Harris ahead by 8 and Warren leading by 7. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.

Trump also trails the Vermont senator by a 48-42 percent margin, while head-to-head match-ups pitting the president against other top-polling Democratic rivals are “too close to call,” according to the survey.

“Florida Republicans have won the last five major statewide elections, all by very close margins, but Sunshine State Democrats see these very early numbers as a sign that their losing streak might be coming to an end,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement — adding that Trump “basically ties other leading Democratic challengers.”

Trump enjoys deeply personal ties to Florida, his second home state — capturing its 29 electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election and establishing his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach as his “Southern White House” since assuming office. He often retreats there on weekends to cavort with members of his private club and to play rounds of golf with celebrities, confidants and government officials.

More brutal 2020 poll numbers for Trump

More brutal 2020 poll numbers for Trump The same day the New York Times reported Trump is telling aides to lie about his polling, Quinnipiac drops a doozy.

But a majority of Florida voters, 51 percent, disapprove of Trump’s job performance as president, according to the poll. Roughly 54 percent of respondents, however, said they were better off financially today than they were in 2016.

Earlier Tuesday, the Orlando Sentinel announced its “non-endorsement” of the president for a second term, with the paper’s editorial board writing that “there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump."

Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University has polled Florida for decades, though with a mixed track record. In 2018, the school’s final poll had both Democrats in major statewide races — Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum — leading by 7 percentage points; both lost by fractions of a point.

Poll: Biden leads Democratic field by 6 points, Warren in second place.
Former Vice President Joe Biden remains a top choice in the 2020 presidential primary among Democratic voters, but top tier candidates are narrowing his lead according to a new poll. Biden maintains a 6 point advantage, with 24 percent of Democrats surveyed saying they would vote for him if the primary were held today, according to an Economist/YouGov poll. The web-based poll was conducted between June 22 and June 25, and included 1,500 U.S. adults. There is a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is close behind Biden, with 18 percent of the vote. Warren now polls 3 points ahead of fellow progressive candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.
