Democratic Polls 2020: Joe Biden Leads Field of Candidates

Getty Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are the top performers in the latest Democratic polls.

As the first Democratic debates take place in Miami, the polls become more and more important as the party begins the journey to naming a nominee to compete against President Donald Trump in 2020. Joe Biden currently leads the field of candidates in most polls, while Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are next in line. With the first primaries not taking place until February 2020, there is still plenty of time for candidates to gain or lose favor with voters.

Keep in mind, these polls were conducted prior to the first Democratic debate. The majority of candidates are hoping to use the debates as a catalyst to gain ground on Biden. The polls do play a role in the Democratic debates as 20 candidates made the minimum polling threshold required to participate.

According to Real Clear Politics, Biden has an average lead of 15.1 percentage points over Sanders and a 19.2 percentage point lead over Warren in the current polling numbers. It is important to note that Warren has gained ground in recent polls. Warren topped Sanders for second in polls conducted by the Economist and Monmouth.

Ultimately, the goal of the Democratic nomination process is to find a candidate who is best to compete against Trump. A recent Emerson poll showed the top three Democratic candidates led Trump in a potential 2020 matchup. Biden and Sanders led Trump by 10 percentage points, while Warren had an eight percentage point advantage.

Here is a look at the latest Democratic presidential polls.
