Broken down by ethnicity, the results show Sanders continuing to enjoy a large lead among Latino voters, who also overwhelmingly supported him in the Nevada caucuses. Sanders led with 30.3 percent of Latino voters, followed by Biden with 18.9 percent and Warren with 16.8 percent.

Biden led among African Americans by an even wider margin, with 45.8 percent, compared to 17 percent for Bloomberg and Sanders with 15.1 percent. This is in contrast to South Carolina, the first primary state with a large portion of African American voters, where Biden’s African American support has eroded in recent months with Sanders only a few points behind.

Sanders also leads with women in the state, at 22.1 percent, followed by Warren with 21 percent and Biden with 20.7 percent.

The poll was conducted online between Feb. 6 and Feb. 18 among 1,352 respondents. It has a 2.7-point margin of error.
