Nevada Poll: Sanders Leads Dem Field by 7 Points

(Las Vegas Review-Journal)

As the Nevada caucus is under way in early voting, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., holds a 7-point lead in The Nevada Poll, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

"Sen. Sanders is winning the progressive battle in Nevada," WPA research director Trevor Smith told the Review-Journal.

Six candidates received double digits in the poll:

  • Sanders 25%.
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden 18%.
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., 13%.
  • Billionaire Tom Steyer 11%.
  • South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg 10%.
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar 10%.
  • Other 5%.
  • Undecided 8%.

The poll comes before Wednesday's debate and does not include Mike Bloomberg, who entered the Democratic presidential primary race too late to be appear in the Feb. 22 Nevada caucus.

"The debate may be too late for any of these candidates to really make the adjustments they need," Smith told the Review-Journal.

The poll reveal 59% of respondents were going to cast their vote via early ballot Feb. 15-18 instead of attending the caucus, perhaps out of fear of counting issues from the Iowa caucus.

The WPA Intelligence poll for the Review-Journal and AARP Nevada called 413 likely Democratic caucus voters Feb. 11-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.
