Senator Elizabeth Warren is now leading former Vice President Joe Biden by 4% in a new national poll; solidifying her position as a top-tier candidate and potentially emerging as a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.
“Twenty-six percent of respondents who say they will vote in their Democratic presidential primary or caucus said Warren is their first choice, a 1-point bump from last week’s survey, while 22 percent said the same for Biden, down from 25 percent last week,” reports The Hill.
Bernie Sanders fell into third place with 14% of the vote.
“Warren also edges out Biden by 5 points among self-identified Democrats, 28 percent to 23 percent, though the poll shows a stiff competition for independents, with both Warren and Biden coming in at 20 percent and Sanders getting 18 percent among such voters,” adds the website.

Far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren topped former Vice President Joe Biden in a recent national survey; solidifying her status as a top-tier candidate and potential frontrunner just months before voters head to the polls.
“Twenty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled by Quinnipiac University said they favor Warren, according to a new poll released Wednesday morning. Twenty-five percent said they prefer former Vice President Joe Biden,” reports Politico. “Although Warren’s edge falls within the survey’s margin of error, Biden’s formidable lead over the rest of the field has crumbled since the last Quinnipiac national poll in August, which showed him with 32 percent support and Warren with 19 percent support.”
“The latest survey reinforces other recent public polling showing Warren and Biden separating from their fellow contenders in the Democratic presidential race,” adds the website.
“After trailing Biden by double digits since March in the race for the Democratic nomination, Warren catches Biden,” writes the poll. “We now have a race with two candidates at the top of the field, and they’re leaving the rest of the pack behind.”
