WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Former US Vice President Joe Biden topped a survey of Democratic presidential hopefuls in 2020 election with a favorability rating of 53 percent among all voters and an 84 percent rating among Democratic voters, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University on Wednesday.

"American voters give former Vice President Joseph Biden a 53-33 percent favorability rating, topping President Donald Trump's negative 40-56 percent favorability rating and besting a list of possible 2020 Democratic presidential contenders," a press release summarizing the poll stated. "Biden gets an 84-7 percent favorability rating among Democrats and a 60-21 percent rating among voters 18 to 34 years old."

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had the highest unfavorable score, a negative 32 — 61 percent favorability, the release said.

UD Senator Bernie Sanders registered a divided 44-42 favorability rating, while 55 percent of those polled said they did not know enough to form an opinion about a fourth candidate, Congressman Beto O'Rourke, the release added.

"For Democrats gearing up for 2020, it's Biden and Bernie, with Beto looking for a foothold and Hillary wondering if the train has finally left the station," Quinnipiac Assistant Polling Director Tim Malloy said.
