Likewise, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would easily defeat the president in a head-to-head matchup by 9 points.
The poll may seem unsettling for supporters of President Trump, but early polls are often very wrong.
NPR’s National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson reminded her Twitter followers over the weekend just how far off early polls can be.

In 1983, she wrote, former Vice President Walter Mondale had a considerable lead in polls over incumbent Republican President Ronald Reagan.
As history shows us, Mondale lost in an Electoral College landslide.
Trump posted an optimistic tweet Monday morning while slamming “fake polls.”
“Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew,” he said. “We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

According to the poll, 72 percent of Democratic voters want their nominee to provide “steady, reliable leadership” instead of a “bold, new agenda.”
This could explain why Biden maintains his clear lead over self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders.
The poll shows Biden defeating Sanders in the primaries by 19 points.
