Boosted with the support of younger voters, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has opened up a nine point lead over President Trump in an early test of his 2020 reelection strength.
The Zogby Analytics survey said that Warren would beat Trump today, 46 percent to 37 percent, with 17 percent undecided.
The poll, provided to Secrets, also showed Trump losing, by a slimmer margin, to new California Sen. Kamala Harris, who is eyeing a bid for the Democratic nomination, and Facebook founder and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.
In those races, Harris is ahead of Trump, 41 percent to 38 percent, and Zuckerberg would edge Trump 43 percent to 40 percent.
Said the polling analysis:
It seems to be that whoever is put up against President Trump does seemingly well. This is evidenced by Kamala Harris being somewhat of a novice on the national scene and Mark Zuckerberg not outright announcing a run for the presidency. Elizabeth Warren, who is the most seasoned political opponent tested against President Trump, does the best. She also received the most support from the highly coveted young vote, which is needed by the Democrats if they are to take back any of the three branches of government.
Trump also has troubles with independent voters in a matchup with Warren, the progressive anti-Wall Street candidate who toyed with running in 2016.
