The Morning Consult polling data, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percent, showed Biden beating Trump 47 percent to 42 percent, while Sanders beat the president 46 percent to 42 percent. But both matchups showed that a sizable portion of voters remained uncommitted, with 11 percent and 12 percent of respondents saying they were undecided for each respective candidate.

Five things to watch in Biden-Sanders debate clash

  Five things to watch in Biden-Sanders debate clash Former Vice President Joe Biden will face off against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the first one-on-one debate of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. It’s the first time the two have debated each other since Biden surged past Sanders in the delegate count, becoming the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. © Provided by Washington Examiner From left, Democratic presidential candidates, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen.

John Avlon writes that while " Bernie Sanders is the Democratic front-runner after trailing Joe Biden in the polls for most of the campaign. Now, he has momentum. But can Bernie win?" The answer lies in the swing states, where ideological voters tend to fare worse.

The same Reuters/Ipsos polling showed that Sanders had overtaken Biden in support among black voters nationally for the first time. Bernie Sanders ' Democratic presidential rivals warn that nominating the self-described democratic socialist will ensure President Donald Trump 's re-election

Biden's lead over Trump has actually declined slightly in the past week. When the Morning Consult survey was previously conducted, Biden was a point further ahead of the president. Meanwhile, the former vice president has increased his lead over Sanders among Democratic voters. While the senator from Vermont was backed by 36 percent of respondents, Biden has increased his percentage of support by 3 points, with 60 percent of Democrats backing his campaign. Five percent of voters said they'd support "someone else."

Other recent national polls have shown similar results, with both Democratic candidates several points ahead of the president.

Poll: Voters split on Trump's handling of coronavirus outbreak

  Poll: Voters split on Trump's handling of coronavirus outbreak The poll also shows a significant share of voters shrugging at the idea of major disruptions to their lives.Nearly half of voters in the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 45 percent, approve of the job Trump is doing in handling the outbreak, slightly fewer than the 51 percent who disapprove. That nearly matches Trump’s overall approval rating of 46 percent, which is statistically unchanged from a month ago.

Former United States Vice President Joe Biden made a spectacular comeback this week when he swept to victory on Super Tuesday, the biggest event in the 2020

A survey released on March 20 by Emerson College showed Sanders and Biden both ahead of Trump by six points, 53 percent to 47 percent. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on March 15 showed Biden with a more commanding lead of 9 points, 52 percent to Trump's 43 percent. Sanders, in that survey, also beat Trump by 4 points, 49 percent to 45 percent.

But Democrats learned in 2016 that significant leads in national polling do not necessarily translate to victory in November. Then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was ahead of Trump by more than 20 points in nationwide surveys at one point during her 2016 campaign, but she eventually lost in the general election. While Clinton did win nearly 3 million more votes than Trump, the president won by a significant margin in the Electoral College after a series of narrow victories in key battleground states.

For Biden and Sanders, the Fight’s Not Personal

  For Biden and Sanders, the Fight’s Not Personal In October 2015, Senator Bernie Sanders was whisked into Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s residence at the Naval Observatory for a breakfast of yogurt parfaits and caffeinated campaign advice from a vice president who had just announced his (temporary) retirement from presidential politics. The meeting, according to aides, lasted longer than expected, nearly two hours, with Mr. Biden discoursing on campaign strategy and a range of policy issues, and expressing admiration for a Sanders political operation that was waging an unexpectedly tough fight against Hillary Clinton.

As the coronavirus pandemic has taken control of the news cycle, and multiple states have postponed their Democratic primaries, the election has faded noticeably from national attention. Biden, the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, has attempted to convince voters that he would handle the growing crisis better than Trump, repeatedly criticizing the president. Sanders has made a similar argument while using his campaign to raise awareness and money for those negatively impacted by the pandemic.

"For too long, the warning signs were ignored. For too long the administration said the threats were 'under control,' 'contained,' 'like the flu,'" Biden said in a Monday video message from his home. "The president says, 'No one saw this coming.' Well, that's just not accurate. Our intelligence officials were warning of coronavirus threat in January," he noted.
