Quinnipiac: Warren Just Beats Biden in Nationwide Poll

Quinnipiac: Warren Just Beats Biden in Nationwide Poll

By    |   Wednesday, 25 September 2019 11:11 AM

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has edged past former Vice President Joe Biden in the latest Quinnipiac University national poll of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters released Wednesday.

Warren’s lead, which falls within the margin of error for the poll, comes just weeks after Biden was shown holding a substantial lead in the last Quinnipiac national poll.

  • 27 percent support Warren
  • 25 percent prefer Biden
  • 16 percent chose Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt
  • 7 percent support South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • 13 percent don’t know or did not respond

No other candidate garnered more than three percent.

“After trailing Biden by double digits since March in the race for the Democratic nomination, Warren catches Biden,” said Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy in a statement. “We now have a race with two candidates at the top of the field, and they’re leaving the rest of the pack behind.”

About half of respondents said they want a Democratic nominee that supports policies that would be difficult to pass but would result in major changes, and just under half think that replacing private health insurance with Medicare for All is the best way to handle health care.

"Dig a little deeper, and the reasons behind Warren's rise become more clear. She generates a lot of excitement as a potential nominee," Malloy said. "On top of that, half of Democrats want a presidential candidate that supports big changes - even if it means things are harder along the way."

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,337 from September 19-23, and has a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points. 561 Democratic voters and independents who lean Democrat were surveyed, and those results have a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percentage points.
