Biden Holds His Lead Nationally Among Democrats

Despite his lukewarm performance at the most recent Democratic presidential debate, Joe Biden holds a near two-to-one lead over Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren among his fellow Democrats nationally.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that Biden still has the support of 35% of Likely Democratic Voters. Sanders now earns 19% of the Democratic vote, while Warren has 18% support. This compares to 14% and 15% respectively in mid-September; Biden’s level of support hasn’t changed over the past month.
