Biden, Sanders top 2020 Democratic field in Nevada poll

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden sit atop the 2020 Democratic presidential field in a new poll of likely Nevada caucusgoers. 

The Emerson College poll shows Biden, who is expected to announce his campaign in the coming weeks, with 26 percent support among caucusgoers, while 23 percent back Sanders.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) are the only other candidates who have double-digit support in the poll, with 10 percent each.

{mosads}They are followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at 9 percent, Sound Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 5 percent and entrepreneur Andrew Yang at 3 percent.

Nevada is expected to be the third major nominating contest in the Democratic presidential primaries following the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary. National polls and polls of voters in Iowa and New Hampshire also have consistently shown Biden and Sanders at the top of the field. 

The Emerson College poll also shows President Trump edging out most of the leading Democratic candidates in Nevada, but Biden has a 4-point advantage over the president.

The new poll’s results are based on interviews with 719 registered voters from March 28 through March 30. The margin of error is 3.6 percentage points.
