President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are tied in a head-to-head match up in Florida, a new poll showed.

The Florida Atlantic University survey released Wednesday found that Biden and Trump are in a dead heat at 50% each in the crucial swing state.

In a head-to-head match between Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the president, Sanders came within the poll’s margin of error, trailing 49% to Trump’s 51%.

Other Democratic contenders fared worse, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., garnering 48% to Trump’s 52%; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg pulling 48% to Trump’s 52% and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., pulling 47% against Trump’s 53%.

The poll also found Trump’s job approval at 47% and his disapproval 44% — a reversal from February’s FAU poll that showed the president's approval at 41% and his disapproval at 46%.

The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

“President Trump’s approval ratings in Florida have remained fairly steady across our polling, and he continues to have a strong base of support in this state,” Kevin Wagner, professor of political science at FAU, told The Hill.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden does well across the board in Florida, and his strength among moderate Democrats appears largely unchallenged so far.” 

Florida, which has delivered narrow margins in statewide and national races, is seen as crucial to any presidential candidate’s path to victory. Trump won the state by just over 1 percent in 2016, The Hill noted.
