Obama Would Beat Trump By 11% In Hypothetical Head-To-Head Match Up
The poll found that if a presidential election was held today and the only candidates were the two immediate past presidents, 54% would vote for Obama and 43% would vote for Trump. Only 3% said they were undecided.
The left-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) was commissioned by Eric Schmeltzer, a progressive public relations consultant, to conduct the survey.
The poll surveyed slightly more Democrats (41%) than Republicans (36%). The other 23% self-identified as Independent.
1,223 registered voters were contacted by both landline and text for the poll.
