The poll comes as Buttigieg continues to gain ground in a number of early states and national polls, carving out a four-way race within the crowded Democratic primary. 

A Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday showed Buttigieg surging to second place at 16 percent support nationally, behind Biden's 24 percent support. 

However, the same poll showed that a majority of voters were still uncertain as to who they would ultimately back in the party's 2020 primary.

Biden still led the pack with 35 percent of voters when asked who they would choose if the race came down to the top four contenders. Twenty-three percent said they would choose Sanders, and 20 percent said the same for Warren. Seventeen percent said they would back Buttigieg. 

The CNN survey was conducted by SSRS from Nov. 21 to 24 among 1,007 adults with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points. Of the 431 registered voters who identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents, there was a margin of error of plus or minus 5.7 percentage points.
