Former Vice President Joe Biden has a commanding 13-point election lead over President Trump, but a new survey revealed that he still isn’t the united choice of Democrats.
In fact, more than 1 in 3 Democrats want him replaced, and they would support New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, former first lady Michelle Obama, or 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The survey showed that Biden is holding the traditional Democratic lead over Trump among Hispanics and blacks and reinforced others showing a shift by older people to Biden.
The polling analysis said that Biden is leading voters over 65, 63% to 37%. It said older people are a “group that has been sustaining Mr. Trump but who appear to be falling away from the president since the COVID-19 crisis.”
While those numbers are encouraging, the Zogby/EMI analysis warned that “there may be a bumpy road to the White House for the expected Democratic nominee.”
In the nationwide poll of 1,001 likely voters with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points, many Democrats and minorities said they want a different nominee than the 77-year-old Biden, who has been a Washington fixture for 47 years.
