Cory Booker has favorables of 48%-8% among Democrats in a new national poll released by Quinnipiac University today.

Front-runner Joe Biden is at 82%-10% among Democrats, while Bernie Sanders is at 73%-20%.  Elizabeth Warren is at 63%-13%, Kamala Harris is at 58%-7%, and Pete Buttigieg is at 42%-7%.

President Donald Trump is at 38%-57% nationally.

Biden lead Sanders among Democrats, 35%-16%, followed by Warren (13%), Harris (8%), Buttigieg (5%) and Booker (3%).

The other seventeen candidates trailed Booker, albeit by statistically insignificant numbers.

“It’s former Vice President Joseph Biden and then there’s everyone else, descending from Sen. Bernie Sanders to Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Sen. Kamala Harris to a bunch of people most Democrats have never heard of,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Booker is upside-down among all voters, 23%-31%.

Biden (49%-39%) is the only Democrat with a net positive score among all voters.  Sanders is at 41%-48%, with Harris at 27%-30%, Warren at 32%-41%, and Buttigieg at 23%-19%.

More than half of the country (54%) say they definitely will not vote for Trump, while 31% say they definitely will and 12% say the will consider it.

“The nation’s economy is pretty darn good and President Donald Trump’s approval numbers are pretty darn awful,” Malloy said. “So what to make of the good news, bad news mashup and how to correct it? For the moment, the disparity leaves the president on shaky re-election ground.”

From May 16 – 20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,078 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points, including the design effect. The survey includes 454 Democrats and Democratic leaners with a margin of error of +/- 5.6 percentage points, including the design effect.
