Former Vice President Joe Biden has overtaken Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the latest Emerson National Poll, leading by 8 percentage points nationally, a 13-point swing after officially announcing his 2020 candidacy.

Biden pulls in 33% of Democratic primary voters in the national poll, leading Sen. Sanders' 25%. Biden had trailed 29-24% before making his 2020 presidential campaign announcement.

This poll is far more favorable to Sen. Sanders and the field against Biden than many others. Biden leads Sanders by 23.5 points in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls.

The Emerson National Poll top five candidates for the 2020 Democratic primary:

  1. Biden 33%.
  2. Sen. Sanders 25%
  3. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., 10% (tied for third)
  4. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., 10% (tied for third)
  5. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Peter Buttigieg 8%.

No other candidate in the field reached 3% of the vote in the poll.

The poll was conducted by Emerson College among 429 likely Democratic primary voters between May 10-13 and containing a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
