"Old White Male Career Politicians are in 1st and 2nd Place in the Democratic Presidential Primary, taking more than half (53%) of the vote," Conway tweeted in response to an Emerson College poll.

The poll showed Sanders, 77, leading the Democratic presidential field with the support of 29 percent of Democratic primary voters. Biden, 76, came in second place in the poll, attracting support from 24 percent of voters. President Trump is 72 years old. 

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who officially launched his campaign on Sunday, came in third in the Emerson poll with 9 percent. He was closely followed by Sen.

Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) at 8 percent each. 

The pool of Democratic candidates is notably diverse in age, race and gender, with six women running to take on Trump in 2020. Buttigieg, 37, is both the youngest candidate running and the only openly gay candidate. Biden, who has yet to announce his candidacy, has repeatedly topped polls among Democratic voters, even after controversy surrounding women who have accused him of inappropriate touching.

Conway has criticized Biden amid the controversy, saying last month that the former vice president "has a big problem" after the accusations.
