Biden leads Democratic Caucus Field in Nevada, Poll Shows
A new poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden with a lead in Nevada over fellow frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
The Fox News poll was conducted by Beacon Research and Shaw & Company from Nov. 10 to Nov. 13 among 1,056 Nevada voters, including 627 potential Democratic caucus voters.
Some 24 percent of respondents said theyd vote for Biden, versus 18 percent who said they support Sanders and 18 percent who said theyd vote for Warren.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg was fourth with 8 percent, followed by billionaire Tom Steyer with 5 percent, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) with 4 percent, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang with 3 percent. No other candidate got over 2 percent.
Biden saw high support among whites and Hispanics, while Warren saw high white support but low support with Hispanics, the same as Buttigieg. Sanders saw much higher support among Hispanics than whites.
“Sanders is the clear choice for those under age 45, while those 45 and over go for Biden,” Fox stated.
The poll had a margin of error of plus/minus 4 percent for the Democratic caucus voters.
The two previous polls in Nevada, both conducted from late October into November, also showed Biden on top.
Biden was backed by 29 percent of likely caucusgoers in a Nevada Independent poll, ahead of Warren and Sanders, who both received 19 percent support. No other candidate saw above 7 percent.
