Half of black Democratic primary voters say they support former Vice President Joe Biden, a new poll shows.
In the Economist/YouGov survey released Thursday, Biden garnered 50% percent of black Democratic voters, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., pulled in 10%, and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., had 7%. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke tied with 4% each.
A Economist/YouGov poll released last week showed Biden with 45% among those voters.
In other findings:
South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg pulled in just 1% support among black voters; he had gotten 3% in the previous survey. Warren had 22% of white voters’ support; 18% picked Biden; Sanders took 13%. Overall, Biden is the top choice for Democrats in the poll: Biden 26% support. Warren 16%. Sanders at 12%. Buttigieg 8%. And Harris 6%.
The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
