The poll also includes data for voters in early primary and caucus states, which include Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. That data shows a much closer race, with Biden at 26 percent, Sanders at 23 percent and Warren at 18 percent.

The poll was conducted Nov. 21-24 and consisted of 8,102 interviews with registered voters. The early-state voters poll had a smaller sample size of 372. The national poll had a margin of error of 1 percentage point, while the early state poll had a margin of error of 5 percentage points.
