Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a double-digit lead over Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and other competitors in the 2020 Democratic field following the latest primary debate, according to a new poll.

A SurveyUSA poll released Monday found Biden with the support of 32 percent of likely Democratic primary voters nationwide, compared to 22 percent for Warren. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the only other candidate who has consistently garnered double-digit levels of support in the race, trailed Warren by 5 percentage points.

{mosads}Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was next with 10 points, suggesting a wide gap between the three top-tier contenders and the rest of the field.

Multiple candidates failed to register more than 5 percent support, including entrepreneur Andrew Yang, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), and Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

Twenty-one percent of respondents said that if their top candidate were to drop out, their second choice would be Warren. Nineteen percent said the same of Sanders, followed by 17 percent who said the same of Biden.

SurveyUSA interviewed 1,071 likely Democratic primary voters nationwide on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16, immediately after the fourth Democratic debate in Ohio. The poll has a credibility interval of 3.7 percentage points.
