The average voter identifies closer with President Donald Trump on ideologies than former Vice President Joe Biden and all other Democratic presidential contenders, according to a poll conducted by the University of South California and the LA Times, reports the Daily Caller.

Of 5,367 Democratic primary voters polled, Trump was given a 66 on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 being the most conservative and zero being the most liberal. Biden came in at 46 and Sens. Kamala Harris (31), Elizabeth Warren (30) and Bernie Sanders (25) were seen as significantly further left.

The average voters gave themselves a score of 54, with Trump given a 12-point difference and Biden a 14-point difference.

“One of Biden’s big advantages seems to be that people thought he was the most likely candidate to beat Trump,” said Robert Shrum, director of the Center for the Political Future at USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. “This ideology rating suggests that he has a second advantage, which is that he is pretty close to where Democratic voters are ideologically.”

Less than half of the people polled are registered Democrats. Roughly one-quarter are independent or not aligned with any political party.
