Democratic Primary: Biden 34% Warren 18% Sanders 16%

For the week of October 11-18, 2019, former Vice President Joe Biden remains the Democrat’s frontrunner with support from 34% of “Definite” voters. Senator Elizabeth Warren is in second place with 18% followed by Senator Bernie Sanders at 16%.

Those three candidates also have the highest favorability ratings among the Democratic hopefuls.

Senator Kamala Harris remains in fourth with 5% of the vote. She is followed by South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (%), and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (3%). Senator Cory Booker, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and businessman Andrew Yang each attract 2% of the vote.

Ten percent (10%) are not sure how they will vote and nobody else attracts more than 1% of voters.

In reviewing all survey data on the Democratic race, it’s important to remember that we are in the very early stages of the campaign. Data released recently showed that most voters are open to changing their mind. The race has remained essentially unchanged for months and we will pause our regular tracking of it.

These results are based upon a survey of 1,815 Registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents who say they will “Definitely” vote in their state’s primary or caucus (see full crosstab results).

This national survey was conducted October 11-18, 2019 by and HarrisX, a polling company specializing in online surveys (see Methodology). Results are presented based upon interviews with 1,839 Registered Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independent Voters  who say they will “Definitely” vote in their state’s primary or caucus. Results from this sample have +/- 2.3 percentage point Margin of Sampling Error with a 95% level of confidence.
