Biden also has the most support among white women, with 36 percent of white women naming him as their top choice, the poll found.

The poll's results are based on surveys with a sample of 15,475 registered voters who indicated they may participate in their state's Democratic primary or caucus. The surveys were conducted from April 22-28 and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percentage point.

Another poll released Tuesday showed Biden with the lead among nonwhite voters in the Democratic presidential primary race.

The CNN/SRSS survey showed Biden with the support of 50 percent of nonwhite voters, giving him a commanding lead over his Democratic rivals in the key demographic.
