Biden, Warren top latest poll of 2020 Democratic field

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are leading the 2020 Democratic presidential field, according to a poll released Thursday.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent.

Warren reportedly fares best with self-described liberals and those aged 18 to 49, while Biden is strongest among older Democrats and African Americans.

Respondents were also asked about their second-choice candidate, which Harris led with 14 percent. She was followed by Warren with 13 percent, Sanders with 12 percent and Biden with 10 percent. 

Only 12 percent of Democratic primary voters, however, said they had definitively made up their mind about their choice. 

Researchers surveyed 800 registered voters including 400 Democratic primary voters between July 7 and 9, after the first primary debates. The margin of error on the primary voters is 4.9 percentage points.
