Campaign Polls

Warren makes headway in three new polls

Greg Nash

Three new polls show Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) support in the Democratic primary growing, offering some new hope for her presidential campaign.

Quinnipiac University’s national survey of the 2020 presidential race released Tuesday showed Warren as the top choice for 12 percent of the Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters asked.

That second-place finish, behind former Vice President Joe Biden, is a significant jump from Quinnipiac’s poll released March 28, which had Warren in fifth, polling at just 4 percent.

{mosads}A CNN-SSRS poll released Tuesday had Warren polling at 8 percent, in third place, doubling her support from 4 percent in its poll last month.

A Morning Consult survey released Tuesday also showed Warren in third place, polling at 9 percent, 2 points higher than on March 31, and placing the senator slightly ahead of South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

All three candidates were ahead of Warren in the previous Morning Consult polls.

Warren’s rise in the three polls comes after the senator announced this month that she raised $6 million in the first quarter, well below other contenders such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-Vt.) who brought in $18.2 million.

Warren garnered some positive attention during her CNN town hall earlier this month, and she has released a slew of policy proposals in recent weeks, including a sweeping plan to reform higher education that would cancel nearly all student loan debt and create universal free public college.

The Massachusetts senator was also the first 2020 contender to call for the House to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump after the redacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller detailed 10 instances in which the president may have obstructed justice.

But the report did not make a conclusion on whether obstruction had happened.
