A crowded field of Democratic challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020 is led by former Vice President Joe Biden, according to the latest CNN poll Sunday.

Among 16 Democratic candidates, Biden overwhelming drew 33 percent of the support from Democrats and Democrat-leaning Independents in the poll conducted by SSRS.

Here the top five favorites from the poll:

  1. Biden 33 percent.
  2. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 13.
  3. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calf., 9 percent.
  4. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., 8 percent.
  5. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and former Secretary of State John Kerry, 5 percent.

Among the others receiving support included former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (4 percent), Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas (4 percent), Attorney Michael Avenatti (1 percent), Rep. John Delany, D-Md. (less than 1 percent).

Biden's lead widens on the field when just considering Democrats polled, as he draws 34 percent support ahead of Harris (11), Sanders (9), and Warren (8).

Among Independents, Sanders closes the gap, pulling 21 percent support to Biden's 31 percent, ahead of Warren (8) and Harris (7).

Only Rep. Delany has officially announced his intention to 2020 plans to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Also notable from the poll, Americans are now more apt to see President Trump defeating the Democratic nominee for re-election in 2020 with a 7 percentage point decline (from 54 percent to 47 percent) among those thinking President Trump would lose.

CNN polled 1,009 adults Oct. 4-7 with a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
