WASHINGTON – While former Vice President and front-runner for the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination, Joe Biden, remains in first, his numbers are slipping while challenger Elizabeth Warren is charging as Bernie Sanders hangs on to a third-place standing.
Recent polling tracked by Real Clear Politics shows Biden has tumbled from 38.3 percent in May to 27.8 percent in mid-to-late September.
Warren rose from 14.6 percent in August to a current 21.3 percent, and is less than seven points behind Biden.
Sanders is at 17.5 percent, up from last month’s 15.4 percent.
Kamala Harris was closing ground last month at 12.6 percent, but has slipped to a current 4.7 percent.
The rest of the pack remains a distant afterthought in recent polling.
Pete Buttigiege is at 5.3 percent, while Robert O’Roarke continues to falter, netting 2.5 percent, down from 3.8 two months ago.
Cory Booker dropped from 2.5 to 1.8 percent, the last two months, and sits at 1.5 percent. Andrew Yang has moved from 1.4 percent to 3.3 percent.
Several other candidates registered less than 2 percent.
