For whatever polls are worth these days, a new Fox News poll has U.S. President Donald Trump losing to all four top Democratic competitors if the election were held today.

Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris all beat Trump by significant margins in the poll.

Former vice president Biden fared best, receiving 50% of Americans’ votes to Trump’s 38%, while 12% were undecided/third-party voters.

According to the poll, socialist Sanders would also trounce Trump, receiving 48% to Trump’s 39%.

Democrat Senator Warren — who Trump has taunted as “Pocahontas” for her previous bogus claim of Indigenous heritage — would apparently get 46%.

California Senator Harris would also apparently win against Trump, ousting him from the presidency with a score of 45%.

This all may be deja vu though, as polls predicted Trump was going to get crushed by his Democrat opponents when he won the Republican nomination.

Polls in the lead-up to the election also overwhelmingly predicted Trump would lose handily to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Oddly, polling from Rasmussen still has Trump’s approval rating at 46% (and hit 50% in July) — several points higher than any of the results in the Fox News poll.

Trump fans and proponents have pointed to recent Trump rallies with sellout or near-sellout crowds to dismiss the dire polling as ‘fake news.’
