Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to lead the Democratic field in Illinois, although his advantage has shrunk since July, according to a poll Monday.
The poll from the Chicago-based independent company Victory Research found the former vice president with 23.2 percent support. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was second with 17.4 percent support.
Biden’s lead has narrowed since his 36.1 percent support in July, the Jacksonville Journal-Courier noted, after seeing a 13.6 point drop among African Americans.
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in third in the latest poll, with 15.9 percent support, edging out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who got 15 percent support. All of the other candidates received 3.6 percent support or less.
The poll surveyed 1,200 likely Democratic primary voters between Nov. 22 and Nov. 25. The margin of error is 2.83 percentage points.
