Former Vice President Joe Biden had jumped out to strong leads during the past week, in some polls building a 30+ point spread between he and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but the latest two surveys, one national and the other for the Nevada Caucus, show the race closing.
According to Emerson College Polling (5/10-13; 429 likely Democratic primary voters), Mr. Biden now leads Sen. Sanders 33-25%, with Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) polling 10% apiece, while South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers 8% preference. All other candidates were below 4% support.
Change Research tested the Nevada Democratic electorate (5/9-12; 389 NV likely Democratic Caucus attenders) and found Mr. Biden’s lead only 29-24%, with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 13%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) posting 12%, and California Sen. Kamala Harris with 11%. All other candidates were below 5% support.
