Warren and Mayor Pete Surge In South Carolina Poll

South Carolina’s Post & Courier reports:

Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a commanding 20-point lead in the 2020 South Carolina Democratic presidential primary, but his post-announcement advantage is shrinking — and he has a surprising new set of top challengers.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have emerged as the next two choices after Biden in the early voting state, according to a new Post and Courier-Change Research Poll of likely Democratic primary voters released Sunday.

Biden fell to 37 percent in the latest poll. Warren sits second at 17 percent followed by Buttigieg at 11 percent with Harris and Sanders tied at 9 percent. Most notable is Buttigieg’s growing support from black voters. He collected 6 percent African American support, good enough for fourth this month, after he received none in May.
