Joe Biden’s lead in a popular average of national presidential primary polls has slipped to just 0.3 percentage points over Elizabeth Warren, well within polling margins of error and pushing him close to ending his long reign as the front-runner in the crowded field of candidates.
An Investor’s Business Daily/TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence poll released Monday helped to push Warren to just 0.3 percentage points behind Biden in the average. She bested Biden for the first time in the poll, taking 27% support to Biden’s 26%, while Sanders came in third place with 10% support. Warren’s support was up 3 percentage points from the same poll in September, while Biden’s fell by 2%. The poll has a margin of error of 3.3%.
Before the Investor’s Business Daily/TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence poll, Warren was 0.6 percentage points behind Biden, with the former vice president at 26.3% and Warren at 25.7%.
