Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont picked up 7 points of support since last month to move past former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and lead the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, according to a CNN poll released on Wednesday.
It’s the first time Mr. Biden has not held a solo lead in national CNN polling on the race, though Mr. Sanders‘ lead is within the survey’s margin of error of plus or minus 5.3 percentage points for the subsample of Democratic voters.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was next at 14%, followed by former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 11%, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 5%, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and entrepreneur Andrew Yang at 4% apiece.
The survey of 1,156 adults, which included a sample of 500 registered voters who are Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents, was taken from Jan. 16-19.
