It’s just a one point shift for Biden, who was at 25 percent in the February poll, and a 9 point increase for Warren, who was at 9 percent in February.

That’s more than the 50 percent who said they may change their mind in Emerson’s latest national poll.

The poll surveyed 1,041 registered voters between Sept. 6 and 9. There is a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
