A new national poll shows a major drop in support for Elizabeth Warren from October (down 5%) and a major surge for Pete Buttigeg (up 5%.)
Biden’s support also has dropped 6% and Bernie is up slightly (1%)
TheHill reports Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg saw a surge in support in a new national poll, while backing for former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sunk.
A CNN poll released on Wednesday found support for the South Bend, Ind., mayor jumped among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents from 6 percent in the network’s last national poll in October to 11 percent.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also saw his support tick up, within the survey’s margin of error, from 16 percent to 17 percent.
Meanwhile, Biden maintained his front-runner status, but his support dropped from 34 percent to 28 percent. Warren’s support also dipped from 19 percent to 14 percent.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, businessman Andrew Yang and billionaire Tom Steyer each received 3 percent support.
Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) garnered 2 percent support each.
The poll comes as Buttigieg continues to gain ground in a number of early states and national polls, carving out a four-way race within the crowded Democratic primary.
A Quinnipiac University poll released on Tuesday showed Buttigieg surging to second place at 16 percent support nationally, behind Biden’s 24 percent support.
