Warren pulling ahead of Biden in latest poll

Warren pulling ahead of Biden in latest poll

Warren, the progressive senator from MA, grabs the support of 28 percent of Democrats and independent voters who lean toward the Democrats in a survey released Thursday by Quinnipiac University. Biden is getting 21 percent. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg meanwhile, is surging in the Hawkeye state surpassing Sanders for third place in the two most recent polls conducted.

Despite the Quinnipiac numbers, polling averages from Real Clear Politics indicate that Biden still has a national lead.

The poll's margin of error is +/- 2.4 percent.

"Given the month that Sanders has had with his surprising heart attack, staying in third place is pretty good", Peterson said, adding that Biden is "fading pretty substantially".

Biden bought the help of 34 % of Democrat and Democrat-leaning voters within the CNN ballot - the best stage he has hit within the survey since his formal marketing campaign launch on April 25 when he reached 39 %. The former vice president's 15 percentage point lead was his largest since April in CNN polling.

The recent update in poll standings come after Warren took fire from all around the stage in OH earlier this month as her Democratic White House rivals lobbed attacks at the candidate who has been characterized as the candidate with a plan for everything but failure to have a way to pay for her signature healthcare plan Medicare for All. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 3 percent.

The fresh surveys landed as one of the race's low-polling candidates, congressman Tim Ryan of OH, announced Thursday he was dropping out of the race.

No other candidate had the support of more than 5 percent, which Peterson said shows "there is a pretty sizable gap between the four front-runners and everything else". Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at 19 and 16 percent respectively.

According to the poll, Biden is still viewed as the candidate who has the highest chance of winning against Donald Trump in the presidential election in 2020, but not as strong as he has been in the past.

Warren polled at 28 percent among Democrats and Democrat-leading independents, while former Vice President Joe Biden earned support from 21 percent of that voter pool.

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard's share of the "don't want" vote increased from 7 percent in September to 17 percent.

"Your signature is to have a plan for everything, except this", Buttigieg said to Warren.

Biden has also been caught up in the political turmoil surrounding Trump, accused of pressing Ukraine for damaging information on the former vice president and his son Hunter Biden.
