Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg saw a surge in support in a new national poll, while backing for former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sunk.
A CNN poll released on Wednesday found support for the South Bend, Ind., mayor jumped among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents from 6 percent in the network’s last national poll in October to 11 percent.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also saw his support tick up, within the survey’s margin of error, from 16 percent to 17 percent.
Meanwhile, Biden maintained his front-runner status, but his support dropped from 34 percent to 28 percent. Warren’s support also dipped from 19 percent to 14 percent.
