Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., trails Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and former Vice President Joe Biden in her home state, according to a 2020 presidential poll released by Emerson Sunday.
Sanders leads the Democratic primary field with 26% of the vote, followed by Biden at 23%, though Biden has not declared a run.
Warren has just 14% of the vote, followed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 11%, former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke at 8% and California Sen. Kamala Harris at 7%.
Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson Polling, in a statement said the results were “a concern for Warren who at this time does not have a firewall in her home state, and her rival Sanders has a strong base in the Bay State.”
The poll also found:
- 45% of those who supported Sanders in the 2016 primary plan to support him in 2020
- Younger voters support Sanders and older voters support Biden
- Biden is most popular among voters over the age of 65
- President Donald Trump is very popular within the Republican Party in Massachusetts
- Buttigieg is also among voters over the age of 65 with 16%
“This poll continues a trend we have seen over the last month with Mayor Pete becoming increasingly relevant in the Democratic primary with 11% of the vote, just 3 points behind Senator Warren,” said Kimball. “This finding is similar to the results of the Emerson poll conducted a few weeks earlier in Iowa, but higher than the latest polls in Nevada and Pennsylvania, where Mayor Pete had 5% and 6% of the vote.”
