Trump 47%, Biden 43%

Most voters expect Joe Biden to be the Democratic nominee, but President Trump has the edge for now in next year’s presidential race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden is likely to be the Democrats’ presidential candidate next year, although only 23% consider that Very Likely. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say he is unlikely to be nominated, but just nine percent (9%) say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
