The 2020 race is heating up
If the 2020 presidential election were held today, President Donald Trump would lose, the latest Fox News poll found.
What are the details?
The survey, published Sunday, found that Trump would lose to both former Vice President Joe Biden — who has yet to formally announce a presidential campaign, although he is expected to enter the race — and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who narrowly lost the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
The poll found that Trump trails Biden by seven percentage points among registered voters, 47 percent to 40 percent. Similarly, Trump tails Sanders by three percentage points, 44 percent to 41 percent.
Additionally, the poll found Trump would only narrowly beat the leading female Democratic candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), defeating them each by just two percentage points. Unfortunately for Trump, those numbers are within the poll's margin of error.

Not only are Sanders and Biden the most likely candidates to beat Trump in a general election, but among Democratic primary voters, they are also the two most popular candidates.
Among Democratic voters that Fox News polled, Biden garnered 31 percent of support while Sanders received 23 percent of support. Harris and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) each received 8 percent of support, while Warren and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) each received 4 percent of support.
