A new Quinnipiac University poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden is the only Democrat in the race who would beat Republican President Trump if the 2020 presidential election were held today.

 Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.

 

The poll shows 52% of the Ohio voters surveyed prefer Biden, 42% Trump. Biden is more moderate than many Democratic presidential candidates. But pollster Peter Brown says this isn’t an indication that Ohio is a red state.

 

“He has a natural constituency. Mr. Biden considers himself a blue-collar kind of guy. Ohio is definitely a blue-collar kind of state. And they mesh together quite well.”

 

The poll shows voters who consider themselves Independents prefer Biden 55% to 32%.
