A new Economist/YouGov poll taken between Sept. 1 and 3 shows that Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump all have pretty horrible favorability ratings, but President Trump has managed to climb past both Biden and Sanders, who stand at 42 percent each.
Both Biden & Bernie have lower favorability ratings than Trump in the new YouGov poll. Not sure I've seen that before.

Two candidates whose supporters insist would soundly defeat Trump have lower net-favorability than the POTUS. https://t.co/AnI7LHxZ1Y

Look at the others too. Most of the D candidates are underwater on favorability. Though there is sizable % that "don't know".

Why Trump is still favored to win re-election

Hillary had a 63% fav rating before running for President which eventually evaporated during the course of the primary and general so this is normal.
She of course went on to lose though which is why I find it hilarious how obsessed the 'resistance' is with early polls.

This is YouGov. They are basically Warren’s campaign pollster. Total outlier

Warren does seem to be the new Biden, however. She’s got a plan! It sucks, but it’s a plan, and only the super-duper ultra-rich are going to pay for it with just a nickel each.
My guess is the left doesn't view Biden favorably and the centrists don't view Bernie favorably. Each will probably pick up 10 points or so after the primary when Trump is the alternative

Of course, this was before the whole Sharpie debacle broke, so who knows what the numbers would be today?
