    Joe Biden is underwater with voters earning less than $75,000 a year, who overwhelmingly prefer Bernie Sanders – By Walt Hickey and Grace Panetta (Business Insider) / Dec 11 2019

    • Recent Insider polling shows that former Vice President Joe Biden’s net satisfaction is currently underwater with voters earning less than $75,000 a year, who prefer Sen. Bernie Sanders.
    • Over the last 10 polls conducted between early September and early December, we broke down each candidate’s satisfaction by categories including race, gender, education, and income
    • The former vice president has very high satisfaction, however, among voters reporting incomes of $75,000 and above.
    • Sanders’ net satisfaction by income level breaks down the opposite way of Biden’s. It’s highest among voters with the lowest annual incomes, but is negative among voters earning $100,000 or more per year.

    Recent Insider polling shows that former Vice President Joe Biden currently underperforms with middle-class voters earning less than $75,000 a year compared to his overall performance in contrast with Sen. Bernie Sanders, who performs better among those voters relative to his overall standing.

    To help make sense of where all the 2020 candidates stand, Insider has been conducting a recurring SurveyMonkey Audience national poll for almost a year.

    You can download every poll here, down to the individual respondent data, and see the sample size and margin of error for all six of the polls we cite here. (Read more about how the Insider 2020 Democratic primary tracker works).

    Instead of asking respondents who they would vote for if their primary election was held tomorrow, we ask respondents which candidates they would be broadly satisfied with as the Democratic nominee.

    Over the last 10 polls conducted between early September and early December, we broke down each candidate’s satisfaction by categories including race, gender, education, and income to get a look at the candidates’ satisfaction by demographic group. To note an important caveat, we only broke down the results by yearly income and not total net worth, a very different metric.
