New 2020 poll: Biden has 32-point lead over Sanders

If the Democratic presidential primary were to be held today or tomorrow, former Vice President Joe Biden would win the contest hands-down. A recent Hill-HarrisX poll shows Biden winning 46 percent of the vote in this overly crowded field, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), in a distant second place with an almost dismal 14 percent.
