Should he win the Democratic primary, embattled former Vice President Joe Biden is tipped to comfortably oust Donald Trump from the White House in the 2020 election, according to a Fox News poll.

Released Sunday, the poll’s results show Biden is currently ranked head-and-shoulders above his other Democratic counterparts, leading the pack with a backing of 31 percent of primary voters – 10 percent more than Elizabeth Warren who’s in second with 21 percent.

The sizable lead is credited to a large contingent of Democratic primary voters – or 80 percent of them – saying it’s extremely important their nominee can comfortably best Trump next year, and 68 percent believe Biden is the man to do it.

Comparatively, voters are less certain that Warren would be able dethrone Trump with a confidence vote of 57 percent. Bernie Sanders was given a chance of 54 percent, while Pete Buttigieg only received a 30 percent chance.

Since May, the number of Democratic voters saying it’s extremely important their nominee can beat Trump has risen seven points, from 73 percent to 80 percent.

The poll also found that despite having a number of candidate to pick from, more than a quarter of voters wish they had more names on the ballot, including 26 percent of Biden supporters and 27 percent of Warren’s.

‘If Hillary Clinton were to enter the race, she’d likely do so near the top of the pack,’ says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson. ‘And Michelle Obama could probably clear the field.’

Twenty-seven percent of Democratic primary voters would definitely vote for Clinton, including one-third of those backing Biden and one-quarter supporting Warren.

Even more favorably for Michelle Obama, the former first lady would be guaranteed more than 50 percent of the vote, including half of Biden’s votership and 40 percent of Warren’s.

Meanwhile, 78 percent of GOP primary voters want to keep Trump as their nominee.

Since the last Fox poll was taken in May, Bernie Sanders has seen his support dip four points. While the 78-year-old’s health concerns aren’t necessarily an issue for more than half of Democratic voters, 28 percent say the heart attack he suffered on October 3 leave them less likely to support the Vermont senator.

In comparison, nearly twice as many say they are more likely (21 percent) rather than less likely (11 percent) to back Biden given Trump’s claims of illegal activity in the former vice president and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine and China. 65 percent said the allegations made no difference at all.

Now just a year away from the 2020 election, Trump either ties or trails all Democrats in each of the possible head-to-head matchups tested.

Biden leads by 12 points overall, garnering over 50 percent of the vote and keeping Trump below 40 percent. In October, Biden was leading by 10 points.

Furthermore, 91 percent of Democrats support Biden to the 86 percent backing Trump. Nearly 90 percent of 2016 Trump voters want him to remain the nominee, while 91 percent of Clinton voters say they would back Biden.

Sanders is tipped to have an eight point lead over the president at 49 percent to 41. Warren meanwhile has five point advantage over the president, however Fox say this number falls within the poll’s margin for sampling error.

Buttigieg and Trump would be tipped to tie at 41 percent a piece, while Clinton has a two point edge if a 2016 rematch were to occur.

Between 10-17 percent of voters are undecided or backing third-party candidates.

‘Trump’s support in these early ballot tests is consistently around 40 percent,’ Republican Daron Shaw told Fox. ‘He’ll need to shore up his support among a few wavering Republicans and pull some independents and Democrats away from the other side if he’s going to win another term.’

A slim majority of voters say health care and the economy will be extremely important considerations for their vote next November, with 53 and 52 percent respectively.

That’s more than voters prioritizing gun control (43 percent), terrorism (42 percent), taxes (41 percent), abortion (36 percent) and climate change (34 percent).

For Republicans, the main considerations are the economy (60 percent), terrorism (55 percent), and immigration (54 percent).

‘Trump’s lowest approval rating is on health care, so Democrats have a big opening there,’ Anderson said. ‘But the size of that opening will depend hugely on the ultimate nominee’s position on Medicare expansion.’

By a 69-21 percent margin, voters favor giving everyone the option to buy into Medicare.

Voters split 47-47 percent over abandoning private health insurance and moving to a government-run health care system for everyone. 80 percent favor allowing everyone to buy into Medicare and 65 percent favor a government-run system.

Despite the general election being 12 months away still, interest is already remarkably high with 60 percent extremely interested.

That matches the record high from November 2008, and is nearly double the 32 percent who were extremely interested in November 2015.
