Elizabeth Warren has surged in Iowa, narrowly overtaking Joe Biden and distancing herself from fellow progressive Bernie Sanders, the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows.
Warren leads with 22%, followed by Joe Biden at 20%, Bernie Sanders at 11%, Pete Buttigieg at 9%, Kamala Harris at 6%, Amy Klobuchar at 3% and Cory Booker at 3%.
Polling at 2% are Tulsi Gabbard, Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang. Eight others are polling at 1% or less.
Said pollster Ann Selzer: “This is the first major shakeup. It’s the first time we’ve had someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the leader board.”
She added: “The data in this poll seem to suggest the field is narrowing, but my sense is there’s still opportunity aplenty. The leaders aren’t all that strong. The universe is not locked in.”
