Emerson’s poll put Sanders in first place with 29 percent support, Biden in second with 24 percent, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg in third with nine percent.

Biden is expected to officially declare his candidacy later this month. Buttigieg launched his presidential campaign on Sunday.
