Former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren posted strong gains among American voters in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Tuesday.

Thirty-one percent of the 506 Democratic primary voters surveyed named Biden as their top choice, versus 25% for Warren and 14% for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Warren's finish was six points higher than in a July survey, while Biden's was five points. Sanders only gained a point.

The poll, taken Friday through Monday, followed Thursday's third Democratic debate at Texas Southern University in Houston.

No other Democrat finished in double-digits.

Here are the major survey results, compared with July:

  • Joe Biden: 31%, up from 26%.
  • Elizabeth Warren: 25%, from 19%.
  • Bernie Sanders: 14%, from 13%.
  • Pete Buttigieg: 7% for both surveys.
  • Kamala Harris: 5%, down from 13%.
  • Andrew Yang: 4%, down from 2%.
  • Amy Klobuchar: 2%, up from 1%.
  • Cory Booker: 2%, up from 1%.
  • Beto O'Rourke: 1%, down from 2%.

Warren also gained more than Biden in other areas in the new survey: 70% of the primary voters said they were enthusiastic about or comfortable with Warren, versus 64% for Biden.

Still, Republican pollster Bill McInturff noted that only three Democrats have double-digit support despite voters being exposed to many candidates so far.

"The race isn't getting broader," he told the Journal. "There aren't more people in the mix. There are fewer people."

The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
