With a sampling of 407 registered Democratic voters, and margin of error of +/- 4.9 percentage points, the latest Florida Atlantic University 2020 election poll in Florida still has former Vice President Joe Biden leading the Democratic field, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren has significantly closed in on him since May of this year.

With more and more Democrats questioning Biden’s fitness to lead, Warren’s surge in Florida is a reason for Team Biden to be very alarmed.

“Joe’s having a hard time,” said President Donald Trump

  • Biden leads both males (38% of the vote) and females (31%).
  • Sanders leads with voters under 29 with 40% of the vote while Biden is at 17% and Warren 15%.
  • Biden’s strength is with voters over 50 taking nearly 57% of the vote from these older voters.
  • Biden has a strong base of support with 67% of his voters saying they will definitely stick with him, Sanders voters are at 52% while Warren voters appear to still be looking with 33% saying they plan to stick with her.
