Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the 2020 favorite among Democratic primary voters nationwide, leading Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., by 12 percentage points 32-20, according to a new Morning Consult poll released Monday morning.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., comes in third with 18%, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., with 6%, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 5%.

  • Support for Warren continues to tick up – in April she only notched 7%.
  • Biden's lead over Sanders has widened by 13 points among support in early primary states, with Biden at 34% and Sanders at 21%.

The poll surveyed 7,487 registered voters who indicate they might vote in the Democratic primary or caucus in their state. The results were collected Sept. 13-15. There is a margin of error of 1 percentage point. Early primary states include Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
