Poll: Biden has gigantic lead over Bernie Sanders

Joe Biden has opened up an enormous 32-percent lead over Bernie Sanders, his closest Democratic rival, according to a poll released Monday.

The former vice president got support from 46 percent of people in a new Hill-HarrisX poll, which surveyed 440 registered voters who identified as Democrats or independents who were likely to vote Democratic.

Biden has had strong leads in the crowded Democratic primary field since he entered the race in April. Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, came in a distant second in the poll, capturing just 14 percent of those surveyed.

Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, came in third place in the poll, capturing 8 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren followed him, polling at 7 percent, according to the results.

Other candidates Tulsi Gabbard, Julian Castro, John Delaney,Kirsten Gillibrand and Sen. Michael Bennet all polled between one and two percent, according to the survey.

A recent Quinnipiac University poll showed Biden with another wide lead, capturing 38 percent of the vote — and showing that 56 percent of Democrat-leaning voters believe he has the best shot of beating President Trump in the 2020 election.
