[Ed. – He’s even done away with the ‘no malarkey’ slogan.]
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds Biden with 30% support among Likely Democratic Voters, down from 37% in the previous survey conducted at the beginning of December. While Biden has led the Democratic contest all year, he has been unable to grow his support beyond the 39% he earned in January and May. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is a distant second now with 16% support, unchanged from a month ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Battling for third place are South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg (12%), Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (11%) and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar (10%). Support for Buttigieg is also unchanged from the previous survey, but Sanders continues to track down from a high of 19% among Democratic voters in October. Klobuchar is new to Rasmussen Reports’ surveying following California Senator Kamala Harris’ withdrawal from the presidential contest.
