Sanders Jumps Ahead Of Biden By 7% In Nevada Poll Days Before Caucuses
The telephone poll, which surveyed a smaller sampling of 413 likely caucusgoers from Tuesday through Thursday, showed Sanders leading at a comfortable 25%. Former Vice President Joe Biden trailed behind at 18%, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren with 13%.
The margin of error of the survey was +/-4.8 points, and the majority of respondents (23%) were between the ages of 65-74 years.
The Nevada caucuses will take place Feb. 22, and will likely show the candidates’ strength among Democratic voters of color.
Sanders narrowly won New Hampshire and has been picking up momentum, while Biden has been dropping in the polls. Biden’s performance in Nevada, and a week later in South Carolina, will help show the sustainability of his campaign.
Nevada has 36 delegates, who will likely break the tie between Buttigieg and Sanders. Buttigieg picked up 22 delegates in Iowa and New Hampshire, and Sanders received 21.
