At least 6 Democratic presidential hopefuls would defeat President Trump in a head-to-head matchup if it were held now, according to a new Quinnipiac University national poll that surveyed 1,214 registered voters nationwide.

The bottom line: In descending order, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Cory Booker all polled higher in a direct one-to-one matchup with Trump.

By the numbers: The phone survey, conducted June 6–10, found...

  • Biden 53%, Trump 40%
  • Sanders 51%, Trump 42%
  • Harris 49%, Trump 41%
  • Warren 49%, Trump 42%
  • Buttigieg 47%, Trump 42%
  • Booker 47%, Trump 42%

In the Democratic primary field, meanwhile, Biden still appears to be dominating. However, he has dropped from 38% in Quinnipiac's April poll to 35% in May and 30% in June. Per Quinnipiac, Democrats or those leaning to Democrat would vote for the following (out of the 24 current candidates and 14% selecting DK/NA) ...

  • Biden: 30% (-5)
  • Sanders: 19% (+3)
  • Warren: 15% (+2)
  • Buttigieg: 8% (+3)
  • Harris: 7% (-1)
  • O'Rourke: 3% (+1)

Methodology: From June 6 - 10, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,214 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points, including the design effect. The survey includes 503 Democrats and Democratic leaners with a margin of error of +/- 5.4 percentage points, including the design effect. <br/>

The end of quarantine

Long quarantines were a necessary tool to slow the COVID-19 pandemic during its first phases, but better and faster tests — plus vaccines — mean they can be scaled back considerably.

Why it matters: Quick tests and regular surveillance methods that identify who is actually infectious can take the place of the two-week or longer isolation periods that have been common for travelers and people who might have been exposed to the virus, speeding the safe reopening of schools and workplaces.

Amazon rollups are the hottest deals

A new generation of companies is forming to scoop up Amazon marketplace sellers — and venture capital firms are writing big checks to support the effort.

Why it matters: These e-commerce aggregators are all about data and using it to optimize and turbocharge sales, which means they’re using Amazon’s own playbook.
