WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden enjoys a comfortable lead among 2020 Democratic primary voters, according to a poll released Tuesday.
The Monmouth University poll found that 27% of the respondents said they support Biden, who has not yet entered the race.
Meanwhile, 20% said they support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Eight percent said they support South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The same percentage said they support Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.).
Six percent said they support Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).
Four percent said they support former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas).
Two percent said they support Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.). The same percentage said they support former Gov. John Hickenlooper (Colo.).
The other candidates polled at 1% or below.
The survey included 330 Democrat and Democratic-leaning voters and was carried out Apr. 11-15. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.4%.
Biden was expected to announce his candidacy on Wednesday but is now considering postponing the announcement, according to media reports.
It is unclear if the reported delay is related to several women having recently accused him of not respecting their personal space.
Biden has said he is sorry if he made anyone feel uncomfortable but has insisted he did not do anything that was inappropriate.
