Scheduled to take place on Feb. 22, the 2020 Nevada Democratic caucuses could alter the dynamics of the primary race, either solidifying Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ frontrunner status, or creating an opening for a candidate such as former Vice President Joe Biden to receive a boost ahead of South Carolina and Super Tuesday.
According to a new poll conducted by WPA Intelligence on behalf of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and AARP Nevada, Sanders — who recently opened a significant lead over Biden in national polling — is poised to win the Silver State. The Vermont senator is leading the field with 25 percent of the vote, with a seven-point advantage over Biden, who is polling at 18 percent.
Polling at 13 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is in third place. Billionaire Tom Steyer is in fourth with 11 percent support. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg — who overperformed the polling in Iowa and came in second in New Hampshire — is in fifth place with 10 percent.
