Biden holds small lead in four-way race for Iowa: poll

A new Iowa poll by Park Street Strategies shows former Vice President Joe Biden with a narrow lead over several of his Democratic primary opponents ahead of the state’s first-in-the-nation caucuses on Monday.

Biden had the support of 20 percent of polled Iowa caucusgoers. He was followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with 18 percent support. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg were then tied at 17 percent each, creating a virtual four-way tie at the top.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) rounded out the pack with 12 percent. No other candidate was in double digits.

The poll of 600 caucusgoers was conducted from Jan. 24 to Jan. 28 and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

The survey is consistent with others showing a tight race as Iowa gears up to officially kick off the 2020 primary race.

The poll also asked Iowans for their second-choice candidate, with 21 percent picking Warren, followed by Klobuchar and Biden, who were each selected by 16 percent of polled caucusgoers.

Buttigieg garnered 14 percent and Sanders received 9 percent when respondents were asked for a second choice.
