The latest Fox News poll, which was released on Thursday, showed President Trump losing to four of the top Democratic presidential primary contenders in head-to-head match-ups.
Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) all won against Trump in head-to-head match-ups, with Trump receiving only 39 percent support among registered voters. Sanders won with 48 percent, Harris had 46 percent, and Warren had 45 percent support.
Former Vice President Joe Biden also beat Trump in their theoretical match-up. Only 38 percent supported Trump while 50 percent supported Biden.
Of the four Democrats, Warren had the largest increase in support in the poll — an 8 percent gain from last month’s survey. The poll results showed that Warren is supported by 20 percent of Democrat primary voters, placing her in second place behind Biden.
Meanwhile, Sanders dropped to third place, receiving 10 percent support in the poll.
According to the poll, only Biden, Warren, and Sanders managed to score double-digit support among voters.
Biden’s numbers decreased slightly from 33 percent in July’s poll to the current 31 percent. He’s still the clear front-runner among the Democrats, however.
This month’s Fox News poll was conducted between Aug. 11-13. A total of 1,013 registered voters were contacted via landline and mobile. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percent among all registered voters, and 4.5 percent among Democratic primary voters.
