According to Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson Polling, “This is a concern for Warren who at this time does not have a firewall in her home state, and her rival Sanders has a strong base in the Bay State.”

Warren has consistently placed behind both Biden and Sanders in early state and national polls of the 2020 presidential race. However, she tends to have a higher percentage of voters without set opinions on her, leaving room for growth.

“This poll continues to show Mayor Pete increasing momentum in the Democratic primary with 11% of the vote, just 3 points behind Senator Warren," Kimball said.

"This finding is similar to the results of the Emerson poll conducted a few weeks earlier in Iowa, but higher than the latest polls in Nevada and Pennsylvania, where Mayor Pete had 5% and 6% of the vote,” Kimball continued. 

Emerson polled 371 likely Democratic primary voters in the state between April 4 and April 7. The margin of error for the sample is 5 percentage points.
