A new poll shows Sen. Bernie Sanders gaining momentum in North Carolina as former vice president Joe Biden has been plummeting in national polls ahead of the Super Tuesday Democratic primary.
The High Point University poll, released Wednesday, shows Sanders polling with 25% of registered voters in North Carolina and Biden trailing with 19%. Among likely voters, however, those numbers flip, with Biden in the lead at 24% and Sanders in second with 20%.
Polls have shown Biden with a healthy lead in North Carolina for months, but his numbers have been dropping in recent weeks before taking a nose dive, just as the primary season started, according to polling site FiveThirtyEight.
