A Morning Consult poll released Thursday shows Bernie Sanders holds the biggest lead among independent voters in hypothetical general election matchups against Donald Trump.

When matched against Trump, 42 percent of independents said they would vote for Sanders. Just 32 percent would vote for the president, giving Sanders a dominant 10 point lead.

No other Democratic candidate came close to Sander’s lead with independents. Michael Bloomberg’s lead over Trump was 6 points, while Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren each held 5 point leads.

Among all registered voters, Sanders’ lead against Trump is 3 points. 13 percent of respondents are undecided.

The survey was conducted between January 15 and 19.
