Biden Leads Democratic Field Ahead of Sanders, Poll Shows

(Bloomberg) -- More than a quarter of Democratic voters are supporting Joe Biden, according to the latest national poll from Investor’s Business Daily.

The former vice president had the backing of 26% of those polled, followed by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders at 19% and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 13%.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at 8%, statistically tied with former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg who had 7%.

The survey of 336 adults contacted via mobile phones and landlines was conducted from Jan. 23-30. The poll’s overall margin of error was 3.3 percentage points.

Biden remains in first place nationally in the RealClearPolitics average, but Sanders is ahead in some recent Iowa polls and leads in most recent New Hampshire polls.

(Disclaimer: Michael Bloomberg is also seeking the Democratic nomination for president. Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.)
