South Carolina: Biden Lead Shrinks To +5 Over Sanders

CBS News reports:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in South Carolina continues to narrow as the state’s primary inches closer, according to a new CBS News-YouGov survey.

The poll, which was finished before Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won the Nevada caucuses, revealed that Biden’s support has fallen by double-digits and that he leads the progressive senator by just 5 points. Biden, who once led the field by nearly 30 points, earned 28 percent support among Democratic voters and independents who plan to vote in the primary.

Twenty-three percent of respondents said that they would place their support behind Sanders. Billionaire activist Tom Steyer came in third, with 18 percent of respondents saying they favored him as the nominee.
