With Buttigieg, Klobuchar Exiting,Biden Reclaims National Lead

Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to regain support for the Democratic presidential nomination after two of his former rivals dropped their own campaigns and endorsed his ahead of the Super Tuesday contests.

According to a Morning Consult poll of 961 Democratic primary voters conducted from Monday at 3 p.m. to Tuesday at 9:30 a.m., 36 percent said they’d vote for Biden if the primary or caucus were held in their state today. The latest figure, which has a margin of error of 4 percentage points, marks his highest share of nationwide support since June, and is up 10 points from polling conducted Sunday after his big victory in the South Carolina primary.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who holds the pre-Super Tuesday lead in delegates to the Democratic National Convention, saw no significant change in support, nor did former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is viewed as Biden’s main competition for support from moderate and conservative voters in the Democratic electorate.
