There is surging interest in Buttigieg among Democratic voters.

In the previous survey from late February, Sanders was at 26 percent, followed by Biden at 22 percent. Buttigieg was only at 1 percent in that survey.

Buttigieg has since raised millions of dollars and seen a spike in interest following a CNN town hall event and several viral internet moments.
