Bloomberg rises into third-place tie with Warren in national poll
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has climbed into third place in a national poll, tying with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
Bloomberg and Warren each registered 14 percent support, according to a Morning Consult poll released Monday.
Bloomberg’s support has increased 2 points since last week’s Morning Consult survey, while Warren has remained stagnant.
Former Vice President Joe Biden kept his first place spot in the poll at 28 percent, but that marks his lowest point of support so far in the election cycle, according to Morning Consult polling which began in early 2019.
Biden is closely trailed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who registered 24 percent support in the survey.
No other candidates registered at double-digit support in the poll, with former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent, tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang at 4 percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) at 3 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 2 percent.
Morning Consult’s latest national poll results were released on the day of Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses. All but Bloomberg, who is skipping the first four nominating contests, are vying for support from Iowa Democrats.
Morning Consult surveyed 35,888 registered voters, including 15,259 Democratic primary voters. The survey was conducted between jan. 27 and Feb. 2. There is a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percentage point.
