The gaffes may be piling up on Joe Biden, but the former vice president is still well ahead in the race for next year’s Democratic presidential nomination.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online surveys shows Biden going into the fall with 33% support from Likely Democratic Voters. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is a distant second at 19%, closely followed by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders with 16%. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 1-2, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
