Nearly two-thirds of Democratic voters said they would be open to changing their minds about who they support in the party’s 2020 primaries, according to a new poll. 

In a CNN survey released Tuesday, 64 percent of Democrats and likely Democrats who had selected a favorite presidential candidate said it is possible they might change their mind. Thirty-six percent said they “definitely support” their top choice.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) topped the list, with 23 percent of respondents putting her in the top three candidates they were most curious about. She was followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), with 20 percent, and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) at 19 percent.

The poll was conducted April 25-28. Among the 1,007 respondents, 411 were Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote and 367 said they had already chosen a candidate to support in the party’s 2020 primary.

The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

The field of 2020 field has grown to 21 Democratic presidential candidates. Biden has consistently led the field, and a new poll puts him 24 points ahead of his nearest challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) has seen a rise in popularity in recent weeks, often polling in third place, while Harris, who was once considered a front-runner has been falling recently.

Warren has seen an uptick in recent days.
