Our first CNN/SSRS polls of the South Carolina Democratic primary and Nevada Democratic caucuses show two very different races. Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a large 37% to 16% advantage over Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in South Carolina among likely Democratic primary voters. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is at 11%. No one else gets above 5%.
This poll result is in-line with other polling from the fourth-in-the-nation primary state that has generally given Biden a lead ranging between 20 points to 25 points.
Meanwhile, Nevada’s Democratic caucuses are much closer. Biden and Sanders each have 22%, while Warren is at 18% among likely Democratic caucus-goers. This difference is well within the margin of error, and its best to think of Nevada as a three-way top tier of Biden, Sanders and Warren. No one else gets above 5% in Nevada.
