Former Vice President Joe Biden solidified his standing as the Democratic frontrunner Tuesday; opening a whopping 24 point advantage over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in recent polling.
According to the new survey, Biden jumped 11 points since announcing his run for the White House last Thursday, with 39% of likely Democratic voters supporting the former Vice President followed by Sanders at 15%.
“Biden’s strength in the polls is driven by his broad support from African Americans. Biden has 43 percent support from black voters, according to Morning Consult. Sanders is at 20 percent here, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at 10 percent,” reports The Hill.
Biden spoke at his first campaign rally in Pennsylvania Monday; labeling his run for the White House as a “battle for the soul of the nation.”
