Former Representative Beto O’Rourke has an advantage of around 10 points ahead of President Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup, according to a new CNN/SSRR poll, The Hill reported.
The survey released Thursday shows O’Rourke with support from 52 percent of registered voters, compared with Trump’s 42 percent. Two percent of voters said they wouldn’t support either candidate and 4 percent said they had no opinion.
O’Rourke held the widest lead over Trump among other Democratic presidential candidates who were included in the potential matchup.
Senаtor Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden tied for second place behind O’Rourke, with each leading Trump by 6 points.
Senаtor Kamala Harris followed with a 4-point lead over Trump, while South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg led the President by 3 points.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren came in last place in the poll, trailing Trump by 1 point.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points, surveyed 1,007 adults nationwide by telephone from April 25-28. Thirty-three percent of respondents identified themselves as Democrats, 26 percent as Republicans and 41 percent as independents or members of another party.
