Biden has double-digit lead over 2020 Democratic rivals, poll shows

Washington Examiner 0 month ago

Joe Biden is enjoying one of his largest leads over the rest of the Democratic field since joining the presidential race, a new poll finds.

A CNN survey conducted by SSRS finds that 34% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters currently back the former vice president to unseat President Trump in November. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts sits in second place, with 19% support. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont placed third with 16%.

The rest of the pack is even farther behind, with Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and California Sen. Kamala Harris earning 6% support, while Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke garnered 3% support.

CNN/SSRS interviewed more than 1,003 Democratic voters for the poll Oct. 17-20, which has a +/- 3.7 margin of error.

Much of Biden's rise in support appears to come from him continuing to consolidate moderate and conservative Democrats, of which 43% support him. In September, he earned 29% of their support.

Black voters — which underpin Biden's strategy to win Southern primary states — also seem more enthusiastic about his candidacy than just a month ago, with 42% backing him compared to just 28% in September.
