Although he hasn’t entered the presidential race, Vice President Joe Biden is polling better than most declared candidates on both sides of the aisle.
Just days after President Barack Obama gave Biden his blessing to throw his hat into the ring, Quinnipiac University released a poll on Thursday showing that Biden would perform better in a race against a Republican candidate than presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul’s closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%….
Clinton still leads the Democratic race at 45% support from registered Democrats, followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 22% and Biden — who is currently mulling a 2016 bid — at 18%.
But Biden, currently sporting the highest favorability rating among any 2016 candidates polled of either party, tops Trump 48% to 40%, compared to Clinton, who beats Trump 45% to 41%. Biden also beats Bush, 45% to 39%, compared to Clinton, who beats Bush 42% to 40%.
Meanwhile, Biden has confirmed to the Democratic National Committee that he is contemplating a bid for the White House, but wants to make sure he can give it his “whole heart and soul” – a reference to the death of his son Beau Biden this summer, according to The Washington Post.
