Former Vice President Joe Biden is holding his lead in national polling just days ahead of the Iowa caucuses, but Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is keeping the gap narrow.
Biden takes the top spot in the latest Quinnipiac University national poll with 26% support among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters, up slightly from 25% in a Jan. 13 survey.
Sanders rose to 21% in the latest tally, up from 19% two weeks ago and his highest tally so far in the poll.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was in third at 15%, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who’s spent $278 million on advertising since joining the race in November, placed fourth with 8%.
Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar had 7% support, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg had 6% and entrepreneur Andrew Yang had 3%. No other candidate got more than 1%.
Biden will be at Western Iowa Tech tomorrow at 1:15 in the Rocklin Center. Elizabeth Warren will appear at the venue on Friday morning at 10:45. And Pete Buttigieg will hold a town hall on Friday morning at 11:30 a.m. at the Orpheum theater. Amy Klobuchar will hold an event Thursday at a yet to be determined location.
The trial for the man charged with killing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts in 2018 has been delayed. Cristhian Bahena Rivera had been scheduled to stand trial for first-degree murder on Feb. 4 in Sioux City.
