Poll: Biden Beats Every Potential GOPer By Larger Margin Than Hillary

While Democrats beat Republicans in all hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, a poll from MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist released on Friday that Vice President Joe Biden beat all Republican candidates at greater margins than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Both Clinton (a declared candidate) and Biden (a yet-to-be-declared candidate) beat current Republican frontrunner and celebrity tycoon Donald Trump by double-digits, according to an advance report of the poll from MSNBC. Clinton topped Trump by 13 points and Biden polled 18 points ahead of Trump.

Among Latino voters, according to MSNBC, the margin only increases:

In a hypothetical general election match-up, leading Democrat Hillary Clinton would trounce Trump 69%-22% among Latino voters. Against Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet said whether he plans to run, Trump would still perform poorly – 71% to Biden’s 20%.

MSNBC reported Biden also polled better than Clinton when pitted in head-to-head match-ups against Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

The poll was conducted among 1,115 registered voters from Aug. 26 to Sept 9. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. The poll of Latino voters was among 432 registered Latino voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 6.2 percent.
