BIDEN BUMP? Former Veep Jumps 6 Points in Latest National Poll

Former Vice President Joe Biden saw a notable bump in his level of support among Democratic primary voters, according to a recent survey released by Morning Consult.

That poll showed Biden with 36 percent of support among primary voters, up from 30 percent the week before. The poll was conducted from April 22-28, and Biden officially entered the race on April 25. It’s common for candidates to see a slight bump in the polls upon officially jumping in a race.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finished in second place with 22 percent, a full 14 percentage points behind Biden. That’s a two-point drop from the previous week. Nearly every major candidate saw a slight decline in support compared to Morning Consult’s previous poll from last week.

The one candidate who bucked that trend was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who earned 9 percent, up from last week’s 7 percent result. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg finished in fourth with 8 percent, followed closely by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) at 7 percent.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke appears to be on a somewhat steady decline, dropping from 8 percent two weeks ago to just 5 percent in this week’s poll. Here’s how the rest of the field fared:

Trailing the main contenders are Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) at 3 percent, and two candidates at 2 percent: Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. Eight candidates are tied at 1 percent: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).

The Morning Consult poll surveyed 15,475 Democratic voters and has a margin of error of +/- 1 percentage point.
