Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) national support in the Democratic presidential primary has broken into double digits, according to a Morning Consult Political poll released on Tuesday, the latest sign the 2020 hopeful’s campaign is gaining momentum.

Warren’s support rose from 9 percent to 10 percent among 16,587 Democratic primary voters surveyed from May 27 to June 2, according to Morning Consult’s weekly Political Intelligence survey, putting her in third place overall.

Sanders still holds a 9-point lead over Warren in the poll, placing second overall with 19 percent support. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has topped most polls since announcing his run, is still sitting comfortably at the front of the pack with 38 percent support.

Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-Calif.) support was unchanged from last week, holding steady at 7 percent. The same goes for South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who tied Harris for fourth place with 7 percent support, the Morning Consult poll found.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) came in fifth with 4 percent support, while Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) carried 3 percent in the survey.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percentage point.

The latest polling numbers are likely to be welcome news for Warren, who had found her presidential bid struggling to pick up steam in its first few months. In recent weeks, however, she has seen her support tick upward, suggesting that months of steady policy rollouts and consistent campaign messaging is paying off.

Among Democratic voters in early primary and caucus states, Warren saw an even bigger jump in support, rising from 7 percent last week to 10 percent this week in the Morning Consult poll. She remains in third place with those voters.

Sanders placed second among early primary state voters, taking 18 percent support — 2 points less than he got last week. Biden also carries an outsize lead among in the early states with 40 percent support, though that’s 2 points less than he took in last week’s survey.

Buttigieg and Harris placed fourth among early state voters, with 6 percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) came with fifth with 4 percent, and O’Rourke and Booker tied for sixth place with 3 percent each, according to the poll.

The early state results are based on interviews with 696 registered voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada conducted in the same time frame. Those results have a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
