Poll: Biden remains ahead of Sanders by 10 points
Former Vice President Joe Biden maintains his lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) by 10 percentage points in a recent poll.
This week’s Economist/YouGov poll – which asked participants who they would vote for if the election was held today – showed Biden with 29 percent support while Sanders got 19 percent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is close behind Sanders, coming in at 18 percent. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg follows at 8 percent.
Behind them, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) sits at 4 percent, while former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) all clocked in at 3 percent. Philanthropist Tom Steyer and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) came in at 2 percent.
Four percent of people said they are unsure whom they would vote for.
The poll numbers have remained virtually unchanged in the past three polls, with candidates moving at most 1 percentage point up or down. The lack of change shows that the December debate did not sway numbers much.
The poll surveyed 1,123 registered voters between Dec. 28 and 31 and had a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
