ADVERTISEMENTWhile Warren’s support slipped 2 percentage points since earlier this month, Biden fell 6 points and Sanders added 4 points from the last poll.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden slips, Senator Elizabeth Warren steadies, Senator Bernie Sanders gets his groove back, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg breaks back into double digits,” said Quinnipiac University polling analyst Mary Snow.
Warren’s lead is buoyed by advantages among some of her key demographics: She has a 33-point lead among voters who identify as “very” liberal, a 5-point lead among whites, a 15-point lead among those with a college degree and a 7-point lead among voters between the ages of 18 and 34.
Biden, meanwhile, holds a 19-point lead among voters who identify as moderate or conservative, an 8-point lead among men and those without college degrees and a whopping 38-point lead among black voters.
Warren also appears to be capitalizing on her “I have a plan for that” playbook, with 30 percent of voters saying she has the best ideas. Twenty percent of respondents said the same about Sanders, while 15 percent felt that way about Biden.

The latest poll is one of several showing Warren atop the 2020 Democratic primary, with Biden and Sanders jostling for second place. However, the survey still shows that Biden’s electability argument could appeal to voters as he campaigns across the country and says he will beat Trump “like a drum.”
