Democratic voters favor former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over other 2020 candidates, a Morning Consult poll reveals.

Biden and Sanders lead the pack with double the numbers grasped by any other candidate in the field, according to a Morning Consult poll released Monday. Forty percent of Democrats favor Biden.

Biden’s closest competitor, Sanders, trails behind with 19 percent of Democratic voters saying they will choose him in the primaries.

Voters who selected another candidate as their first choice for the nominee also overwhelmingly chose either Biden or Sanders as their second choice for the Democratic nomination, the poll reveals.

A majority of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s supporters chose Sanders as their second choice, while California Sen. Kamala Harris’s and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s supporters overwhelmingly chose Biden as their second choice for the nomination.

Most Biden supporters chose Sanders as their second choice, and a majority of Sanders supporters chose Biden.

Eight percent of survey respondents indicated they would vote for Warren over numerous competitors in the field. Harris received seven percent and Buttigieg grasped six percent of voters’ support, respectively, according to the poll.

Morning Consult interviewed 15,770 registered voters between April 29 and May 5 to conduct its poll. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percent.

An April 30 Quinnipiac poll showed 38 percent of surveyed voters favoring Biden in the primaries. The poll also showed Warren placing second with 12 percent of voters’ support.
