A new Public Policy Polling company Iowa Democratic presidential caucus poll (3/14-16; 678 IA likely Democratic Caucus participants) finds former Vice President Joe Biden posting a relatively strong 29-15% lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Iowa Caucus is the first voting stop on the Democratic nomination calendar and is scheduled for February 3, 2020.
The PPP results represent a significant change from the last Iowa poll, which Selzer & Company conducted for the Des Moines Register (3/3-6; 401 IA likely Democratic Caucus participants). It projected that Messrs. Biden and Sanders were virtually tied with the former holding only a 27-25% edge.
PPP forecasts all other candidates in single-digits with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) attracting 8%, ex-Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) at 7%, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) tallying 6%, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) registering 5%, and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker drawing 4% support.
