Monmouth University just released their new national Democratic primary survey (3/1-4; 746 US registered voters; 310 Democratic likely primary voters). According to their results, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I/D-VT) are continuing to break away from the rest of the large field. Monmouth sees Mr. Biden attracting 27% as compared to Sen. Sanders’ 25%. California Sen. Kamala Harris was third at 10%, while all others tracked in single-digits.
Of all the candidates tested, some 22 in all, Sen. Sanders gained the most from the January Monmouth poll. He rose nine percentage points from 16 to 25. All of the others saw either no movement or expansion or contraction of one point or less. The Sanders’ move can largely be attributed to him officially announcing his candidacy.
