Former Vice President Joe Biden has a strong lead over his potential Democratic rivals in Michigan, according to a new poll from Emerson College Polling.

Emerson found that Biden, who has not yet formally announced a campaign for president, far outpaces his closest competition for the Democratic nomination: Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, as well as California Sen. Kamala Harris, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, both Democrats.

  • Biden: 40 percent
  • Sanders: 23 percent
  • Harris: 12 percent
  • Warren: 11 percent

No other candidate managed double-digit numbers.

When asked who their second choice would be if Biden decides not to run, Sanders was the most popular pick, followed by Harris and then Warren.

  • Sanders: 42 percent
  • Harris: 23 percent
  • Warren: 18 percent

Emerson also found that Sanders leads among young voters, while Biden is more popular with voters over 30.

President Donald Trump won almost 9-in-10 Republican voters, with former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld winning 11 percent. Trump has a negative approval rating in Michigan, with 52 percent disapproving to 40 percent approving. 

Emerson College Polling surveyed 743 registered voters, including 317 Democrats and 306 Republicans, in Michigan from March 7-10, with a margin of error of  5.5 percentage points.
