Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Donald Trump by seven points in a hypothetical 2020 match up. Trump has said Biden is his “dream candidate” to face in 2020.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds Biden leading Trump in a possible presidential race, 44% to 37%. The poll found that 89% of Democrats would support another generic candidate over Biden, who 80% said they would vote for.

Trump told CBS News’ Jeff Glor during an interview in July that Biden would be his “dream candidate” because he “ran three times and never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap.” “Everybody was shocked that he did.”

The Democrats can’t simply run as the anti-Trump party. They have to put forth policies that will benefit the middle class. Any candidate facing Trump, if he lasts until 2020, should be tough and not be afraid to punch back hard, especially to call out his lies and affinity to Vladimir Putin (Putin’s Apprentice).
