Sanders leads in Iowa ahead of caucus: poll

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) remains the top choice for Iowa Democrats a day before voters head to caucuses across the state, according to a new poll.

An Emerson College poll released Sunday night found Sanders leading the field with the support of 28 percent of respondents, while former Vice President Joe Biden remained in second place with 21 percent, unchanged from the same poll a week ago.

Sanders saw his support dip slightly from 30 percent in last week’s poll. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has gained 3 percentage points since the previous survey. She remains in fourth place in Saturday’s poll after previously falling behind Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) last week.

Klobuchar, meanwhile, saw her support drop 2 points over the week, while former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) surged 5 points to take third place in the poll.

Businessman Andrew Yang and billionaire Tom Steyer registered support from 5 percent and 4 percent of voters, respectively, while no other candidates polled higher than 1 percent.

The survey was taken between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2 and polled 853 likely Democratic caucusgoers in the state. The margin of error is 3.3 percentage points.
