THE CHEETO CEILING:

Biden Holds Primary Lead; Dems Have Edge in General (Monmouth University, 3/09/20)

Michigan primary voters repeat the mantra of Democratic voters across the country - 57% say beating Trump is more important to their vote than any policy issue. Another 25% say electability is about as important as their top policy concern while 16% say it is less important than issue alignment. Among those who say beating Trump is their top priority, 60% support Biden and 25% support Sanders. Among primary voters who do not make electability their top priority, Sanders (50%) is preferred over Biden (40%).

"With Trump in office now, electability is certainly more of a factor for Michigan Democrats than it was four years ago," said Murray.

Looking ahead to November, both of the probable Democratic nominees hold narrow leads among registered voters over Trump in a crucial state the Republican won by 10,704 votes four years ago. Biden holds a 48% to 41% edge over the incumbent while Sanders has a similar 46% to 41% lead.
