Biden in commanding lead among Democrats: Polls

According to one poll by CNN on Tuesday, 39 percent of Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents called Biden their top pick for the party’s nomination, up from 28 percent in March. "That puts Biden more than 20 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont — who holds 15 percent support in the poll — and roughly 30 points ahead of the next strongest candidate, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren," CNN said. A separate poll by Morning Consult found Biden with 36 percent support, followed by Sanders at 22 percent – a 6-point bounce for Biden from the same survey released earlier this month. Yet another poll by Suffolk University showed Biden comfortably ahead in the state of New Hampshire with 20 percent support, beating both Sanders and Warren on their home turf in the New England region of the United States. The 76-year-old former vice president, a harsh critic of incumbent President Donald Trump, is leading a field that includes at least 20 other candidates vying to become the Democratic presidential nominee next year. Biden’s strength in the polls is driven by his broad support from African Americans.
