Biden To Lose Bernie’s Supporters To Trump If Nominated.
Joe Biden is coasting to victory over rival Bernie Sanders, but not all Bernie supporters are planning on jumping on the Biden train if happens that he becomes the nominee.
If Joe Biden secures the Democratic presidential nomination, 15% of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters will vote for President Donald Trump’s reelection, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Now If accurate, that would represent a slightly larger defection than occurred after the bitter battle between Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, when 12% of Sanders voters broke for Donald Trump in the general election.
The good news for Biden is that in spring 2016, an ABC News poll found 20% of Sanders supporters said they would vote for Trump over Clinton, and far fewer ended up doing so. And 80% of Sanders’ supporters said they would back Biden over Trump, according to the poll.
The 15% who said they plan to vote for Trump represents just 6% of Democrats and voters who lean Democratic, according to ABC News. Trump won 8% of Democrats in 2016.
Recently, the Former Vice President smear President Trump, but didn’t end well for him as Trump hit back hard.

Analysis: Trump’s approval rising amid coronavirus crisis. What could it mean for November?
Joe Biden holds a more than 300-delegate lead over Sanders, who has said he intends to continue his fight for the nomination despite the tough odds of overcoming Biden’s lead.
The ABC/Post poll found Biden with a 16-percentage-point advantage (55%-39%) over Sanders among registered Democrats and independents who lean Democratic.
In a hypothetical general election matchup, the former Vice president Biden narrowly topped President Trump by 2 points (49%-47%), which is well within the poll’s 3.5-percentage-point margin of error.
