WASHINGTON – Former Vice President and front-runner for the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination, Joe Biden remains in first, but his footing is slipping as Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren are closing the gap.
Biden, who in May polling sat at 38.3 percent, has slipped to 28.6 percent. In May he was ahead of Bernie Sanders by 19.5 points. Sanders has also slipped in the polls, falling from May’s 18.8 percent to 14.8 percent. However, Sanders, even with the loss of some support, has gained on Biden, now resting 13.8 points behind, according to Real Clear Politics.
Elizabeth Warren rose from 8.5 percent to 14.6 percent, challenging Sanders for second place, but Kamala Harris lurks closely behind, jumping from 7.3 percent to 12.6 percent.
The rest of the cast of candidates have not fared as well. Pete Buttigiege fell from 7 percent to 4.8 percent.
Robert O’Roarke slipped from 3.8 to 2.8 percent, while Cory Booker dropped from 2.5 to 1.8 percent.
Andrew Yang was the only other candidate to add support, moving from 1 percent to 1.4 percent.
Eleven other candidates all garnered less than 1 percent support each in the July polling data.
