Buttigieg, who officially launched his campaign earlier this month, has been surging in polls of the 2020 race.

The Indiana mayor recently placed closely behind Biden and Sanders, the current front-runners, in polls of key early voting states Iowa and New Hampshire.

Buttigieg raised more than $7 million in the first quarter of 2019 and has already qualified for the Democratic presidential debates.

The Morning Consult survey of 14,335 likely Democratic voters was conducted between April 15-21. The margin of error for the sample is 1 point.
