  • 44% of all voters say they would vote for President Joe Biden in a hypothetical race against Trump, who was backed by 42%.
  • 44% say they would favor Biden in a race against DeSantis, who was supported by 40%.

The poll, conducted May 5-7, surveyed 3,574 potential Republican primary voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 1-2 percentage points. More than 5,000 registered voters were surveyed on the hypothetical presidential questions. The margin of error is plus or minus 1 percentage point.
