Biden 27%; Sanders 19%, Harris 8%

An early survey of 740 Registered Democrats shows former Vice President Joe Biden attracting 27% of the primary vote to lead the pack. The polls shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in second place with 19% of the vote.

Earlier data showed that most Democrats expect their party to nominate someone under 70. That would exclude both Biden and Sanders and may create an opening for other candidates. California Senator Kamala Harris is currently in third place with 8% of the vote followed closely by former Congressman Beto O’Rourke at 6%. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker attracts support from 4% of Democrats as does Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Congressman John Delaney and Senator Amy Klobuchar each earn 2% of the vote. A number of other candidates follow with either 1% or less than 1% of the vote.

Sixteen percent (16%) of Democratic voters are undecided (see list of all candidates and results).
