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/>

A Customs and Border Protection staffer told top administration officials Thursday the agency is projecting a peak of 13,000 unaccompanied children crossing the border in May, sources directly familiar with the discussion told Axios.

Why it matters: That projection would exceed the height of the 2019 crisis, which led to the infamous "kids-in-cages" disaster. It also underscores a rapidly escalating crisis for the Biden administration.

The United States on Thursday carried out an airstrike against facilities in Syria linked to an Iran-backed militia group, the Pentagon announced.

The state of play: The strike, approved by President Biden, comes "in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel," Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a statement.

Senate parliamentarian rules $15 minimum wage cannot be included in relief package

The Senate parliamentarian ruled Thursday that the provision to increase the minimum wage to $15/hour cannot be included in the broader $1.9 trillion COVID relief package.

Why it matters: It's now very likely that any increase in the minimum wage will need bipartisan support, as the provision cannot be passed with the simple Senate majority that Democrats are aiming to use for President Biden's rescue bill.
