Biden +16 Over Sanders In New National Poll

Morning Consult reports:

With the Democratic race for president effectively reduced to a two-candidate contest, most primary voters are backing former Vice President Joe Biden, who is riding a towering wave of momentum.

The latest Morning Consult poll tracking the race found 54 percent of Democratic primary voters nationwide identified him as their first choice, putting him in front of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), his chief remaining rival, by 16 percentage points.

The survey of 1,390 Democratic primary voters was conducted on Thursday, after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) ended her campaign. The poll has a 3-point margin of error.
