CNBC Poll: Millionaires Want To See Joe Biden Win Over Trump in 2020
Spectrem Group conducted the poll asking wealthy Americans on 2020 candidates
American millionaires prefer 2020 hopeful Joe Biden over incumbent President Donald Trump, according to a new CNBC poll.
Spectrem Group conducted the poll by asking 750 individuals with “investable assets” of more than $1 million who they would prefer won the 2020 election.
The options they were given was Trump and a few Democrat presidential hopefuls, including Biden, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), among others.
But it appeared Biden was the favorite among the millionaires surveyed.
The former vice president led Trump in a hypothetical matchup 53 percent to 39 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
George Walper, the president of Spectrem Group, said:
“I think what it tells us is that millionaires think that Biden is better against Trump than the other candidates."
“Nearly half of Democratic millionaires plan to donate to the 2020 campaign or have already donated, according to the survey, that compares with less than a third of Republicans,” CNBC reported.
Out of the 750 surveyed millionaires, here's what they identified as:
- 61 identified as Republicans
- 218 as Democrats
- 261 as independent
CNBC presented neither a margin of error or date for when the poll was conducted.
The poll did show Biden came top as the millionaires favorite but didn't necessarily extend to everyone int he Democratic field.
Biden is still way out in front as the Democrats' best hope for the 2020 presidential election, despite the recent "Creepy Uncle Joe" scandal, according to other polls.
An April poll by Saint Anselm College Survey Center shows Biden is still positioned as the Democratic Party's best bet to take on President Donald Trump, even though the ex-VP hasn't officially announced his bid yet.
According to the St. Anselm College poll, Biden, who has not yet entered the race, leads the ballot test with 23 percent.
