Bernie Takes Lead from Biden in New National CNN Poll

A new national CNN poll has Bernie Sanders taking the lead from Joe Biden by 3%.

The poll is an aberration from other recent national polls showing Biden with a comfortable lead.

How the Democrat party Iowa caucus plays out February 3rd is likely to factor big in future national polling numbers.

Politico reports Bernie Sanders’ standing among voters nationwide surged, with a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS showing that the Vermont senator has joined Joe Biden at the top of the Democratic presidential field.

Among Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote, 27 percent said they would support Sanders for the Democratic nomination, compared with Biden polling at 24 percent. The difference between the two candidates falls within the margin of error, so there is no clear leader in the poll.
