USA TODAY/Suffolk JB 32 (+2) EW 14 (+4) BS 12 (-3), Steyer and Gabbard less than 1% each

...In the crowded Democratic contest, former Vice President Joe Biden retained a wide lead, at 32%, up 2 percentage points from the USA TODAY/Suffolk poll taken in June. But Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren moved up 4 points to second place, at 14%, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped 3 points, now at third place with 12%.

...Only three other candidates received support above 2%: South Bend (Indiana) Mayor Pete Buttigieg and California Sen. Kamala Harris, each at 6%, and businessman Andrew Yang at 3%. At 2% were former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan were at 1%. Below 1%, receiving the support of only one or two voters, were Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, author Marianne Williamson, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and activist Tom Steyer.

...The contenders who did not receive the support of a single one of the 424 likely Democratic voters surveyed included Montana Governor Steve Bullock, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Maryland Rep. John Delaney, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Miramar (Florida) Mayor Wayne Messam and former Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak.

candidates. In the end we we all have to come together and unite

Perhaps the candidate field can start to whittle down so we can focus on the dominant candidates, their ideas, views, and differences in more depth

Joe Biden

I understand the potential charm of two smaller debates but our candidates need to start facing off on the same stage IMO. This poll gets us halfway there; we’ll see what Quinnipiac says later this AM.

In our new @USATODAY @Suffolk_U poll, @TomSteyer is backed by one respondent, or .24% of the sample--below the 2% threshold he needed to be assured a place at the debate in two weeks. Biden maintains his wide lead https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/08/28/2020-biden-leads-democrats-voters-dread-election/2120726001/
