“It’s the same answer it’s always been. I don’t do polls," Warren told reporters in Knoxville, Iowa, on Tuesday evening. “I’m out here fighting every day on behalf of working families."

Weeks ago, Warren appeared to be closing in on Biden's front-runner status in the Democratic field but has since seen her support slip as Biden holds his ground and Buttigieg rises. 

The Massachusetts senator also saw a decline in support in a national CNN poll released on Wednesday, dipping from 19 percent to 14 percent support. 

Biden also saw a drop in support in the CNN poll, from 34 percent to 28 percent. 

The same survey showed Buttigieg climbing from 6 percent in the network's last national poll in October to 11 percent.
