Warren’s surge in popularity reflects her upward trend in national polls and surveys of key states, including New Hampshire, California and Iowa.

Pollsters also noted that the new survey shows that college students are largely still undecided in who they’ll vote for in 2020.

The poll was conducted from Sept. 23-24 and surveyed 586 college students. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
