Bernie Sanders has a 26%-16% lead over Joe Biden among Democrats nationally, but 66% of Americans think Donald Trump will win re-election to a second term, according to a Monmouth University Poll released this morning.

A majority of voters (55%) would still prefer a new president, while 42% think Trump should be re-elected.

Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren are polling at 13%, followed by Mike Bloomberg (11%), Amy Klobuchar (6%), and Andrew Yang (4%).  Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer are each at 1%.

In states that hold their primaries and caucuses through Super Tuesday, Sanders leads Warren, 21%-16%, with Biden at 14%, Bloomberg at 13%, Buttigieg at 11%, Klobuchar at 7% and Yang at 6%.

“While most voters want to see Trump turned out of office, his steady ratings through the entire impeachment process and memories of how 2016 turned out suggest that few are willing to bet against him,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. “And the Democratic nomination kickoff in Iowa did not exactly inspire confidence in the party’s ability to find someone who can take on the president.”

According to Murray, Iowa “has had a significant impact on race, especially for Biden, whose support was always soft and based largely on the perception of electability.”

“Sanders is on the rise, but his gains have come mainly in states that vote after Super Tuesday,” said Murray. “There is still time for a number of candidates, including Sanders, to build or lose momentum.”
