Former Vice President Joe Biden is the only Democratic presidential candidate who leads President Trump outside the margin of sampling error in a hypothetical 2020 matchup, according to a new Fox News poll released Friday.

Biden leads Trump by 11 points among all registered voters in the new poll, with Biden receiving 49 percent of the vote from those polled and Trump receiving 38 percent.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) led Trump by 5 points in the poll and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) led the president by 2 points. California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) and Trump were tied in their hypothetical matchup and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg was 1 point behind the president.

The same poll also found Biden to be holding a significant lead among other Democratic presidential contenders for his party’s nomination.

Thirty-five percent of Democratic primary voters polled said they would vote for the former vice president. Seventeen percent said the same for Sanders, 9 percent for Warren, 6 percent for Buttigieg, 5 percent for Harris, 4 percent for Beto O’Rourke and 3 percent for New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D).

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro (D) tied with Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) at 2 percent each, while the remaining party hopefuls — former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang — were tied at 1 percent each in the poll.

The Fox News poll was conducted between May 11-14. The platform polled 1,008 registered voters across the country by phone. The poll’s margin of error was 3 percentage points for all registered voters. The margin of error for Democratic primary voters was 4.5 points.
