The three candidates had similar showings in a September Quinnipiac University poll, which saw Warren, Biden and Sanders at 27 percent, 25 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

“Warren maintains her strength in the Democratic primary, which has been consistently growing since the start of her campaign. This poll confirms her status as a co-frontrunner with Biden,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

Warren leads all other candidates in the poll among both male and female voters as well as white voters and voters with a college degree. Biden leads among black voters, voters without a college degree, and voters aged 65 years and older.

Sanders continues to show strength among younger voters, reaching a 22-point edge among those aged 18 to 34. Sanders’s consistency in his overall support suggests that news he suffered a heart attack did not substantially impact his backing.

Biden has maintained a narrowing lead over Warren and Sanders in most national and statewide polls, largely on the strength of his deep well of support among African Americans.

But Warren has surpassed Biden in recent weeks in a handful of surveys, with polls showing her slowly closing the gap among black voters. 

The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 646 Democratic voters and independent voters who lean Democratic from Oct. 4 to Oct. 7 and has a margin of error of 4.7 percentage points.
