The three frontrunners in the Democratic presidential race are all statistically tied for first place in a new Monmouth University poll, another indication that the race for the party’s nomination remains highly competitive.
Both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) are locked in at 23 percent approval among voters in the poll, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) commands 20 percent. As the margin of error in the poll is plus or minus 5.3 percentage points, the three candidates are thus statistically tied for first place.
Their closest competitor is South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who holds nine percent of voters in the poll.
Biden remains the most favorable candidate to beat President Donald Trump, the poll states. A slim majority of voters believe he can defeat the president at the polls next November.
