Qunnipiac poll keeps Joe Biden in Presidential race, as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s leads shrink

A new Quinnipiac poll shows that Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump still the race for president as the polling agency keep Vice President Joe Biden in the data, even though he hasn’t announced that he’s running.

Trump leads the GOP pack in the Quinnipiac University National poll released Thursday with 25 percent, followed by 17 percent for Dr. Ben Carson, 12 percent for Carly Fiorina, 10 percent for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, 9 percent for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Texas Senator Ted Cruz is at 7%.

The poll found that no other candidate tops 2 percent, with 9 percent undecided: Chris Christie, John Kasich and Mike Huckabee are at 2% with George Pataki and Rand Paul garnering 1%.

“The cast of characters changes by the week, with Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina in the spotlight and Gov. Jeb Bush still waiting for his big break. And Donald Trump still in the lead role,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

For the Democtats, Clinton gets 43 percent of the votes of Democrats, with 25 percent for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, 18 percent for Biden and 10 percent undecided.

Those that said they “would definitely not support” Clinton stands at 11 percent. The agency has never addressed why Joe Biden was added to the polling question – he has 18%.

In fact, they pair up Biden against Trump and Bush in head-to-head matchups, something they don’t do for other GOP candidates. More specific data, click here.

Trump and Bush lead the GOP pack in “definitely not support” category, with Trump at 29%, Bush at 16% and Paul with 15%.

“But when the number of Republicans who ‘would definitely not support you’ is greater than the number who support you, where does that leave you? Welcome to Trump World, comparing his fragile support from his own party to Hillary Clinton’s sagging but still stronger support from her party,” Malloy said in their statement.

Carson has the highest net favorability rating of leading contenders, 48 – 16 percent, with Biden at 50 – 34 percent. Favorability ratings for other candidates are:  Negative 41 – 55 percent for Clinton;  Negative 37 – 44 percent for Bush;  Negative 36 – 57 percent for Trump;  Positive 35 – 28 percent for Sanders;  Positive 39 – 21 percent for Fiorina.
