The survey comes as White House hopefuls vie for the support of black voters, a crucial voting bloc in the Democratic Party.

Though Warren didn’t receive double-digit support in the Hill-HarrisX poll, other surveys have shown the Massachusetts senator gaining ground after struggling with the key demographic over the summer.

According to a Quinnipiac poll released last week, Warren's support among black voters climbed to 19 percent, a 9-point increase since August.

The Hill-HarrisX survey was conducted among 1,270 African American voters from Sept. 18-23. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
