The Nevada caucuses are on Feb. 22; ahead of them, Bernie Sanders is leading in the polls, followed by Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Tom Steyer. Sanders has leaped from third place to second place in the past month in South Carolina, according to an East Carolina University poll released Friday. The university’s pollsters found Biden has 28% support in the state, Sanders has 20%, and Steyer has 14%. SC has been considered Biden’s “firewall” in the primaries — his path to the presidency relies on heavy support from black voters — but his support there has been declining.
Sanders also has been looking strong in key states that will vote on Super Tuesday, when more than 33% of the race’s national delegates will be up for grabs.
In particular, as Vox’s Dylan Scott reported on Friday, Sanders is surging in Texas and in California, the most delegate-rich state to vote on March 3.
