Former Vice President Joe Biden leads all Democratic contenders in a poll of Florida voters released Wednesday.

Biden, who announced his run for president in late April, polled at 39 percent, followed by Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 12 percent each in the survey from Florida Atlantic University's (FAU) Business and Economic Polling Initiative.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg drew nine percent, Sen. Kamala Harris of California seven percent and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke five percent.

“Even though Joe Biden has a substantial lead among the Democrats, with almost 10 months to go before the Florida Democratic presidential primary, there is still plenty of time for the other candidates to make up ground,” said Monica Escaleras, Ph.D., director of the FAU BEPI.

The survey polled how each of the top five Democrats would do in a matchup with President Donald Trump.

Biden fared best in a 50-50 tie with Trump and Sanders polled at 49 percent to Trump’s 51 percent. Trump won matchups with Warren and Buttigieg, 52-48 percent, while Harris polled six points behind the president, 53-47 percent.  

The survey, conducted May 16-19, polled 1,007 Florida registered voters. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.0 percentage points.
