Only 3 percent of likely caucusgoers said they were unsure of who they’d support if the race was decided today.

The poll showed Buttigieg with a 4-point lead among voters aged 35-49, and a 9-point lead among voters aged 65 years and up.

The Civiqs-Iowa State University poll follows a Des Moines Register-CNN-Mediacom survey showing Buttigieg with a 9-point lead and a Monmouth University poll showing him with a 3-point advantage in Iowa.

In another sign of growing momentum, a new poll released Wednesday showed Buttigieg with a 10-point lead in New Hampshire, which will hold the nation’s second nominating contest following Iowa.

The Civiqs-Iowa State University poll surveyed 614 likely Iowa Democratic caucusgoers from Nov. 15-19 and has a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points.
