Biden and Warren both suffered double-digit drops in support since the PPIC's survey last month, leaving Sanders the only candidate firmly above the 15 percent viability threshold needed to win delegates in California, where voters will cast ballots on Super Tuesday. Others remain in the running due to the poll's margin of error.

“As the campaign moves to larger and more diverse states, Sanders’ support among Latinos and younger voters is noteworthy,” said PPIC chief Mark Baldassare.

The PPIC survey's margin of error is 5.7 percentage points; information about the poll's survey date was not immediately available.
