Warren surges past Biden in poll of college students
Elizabeth Warren has overtaken Joe Biden as the top 2020 choice among college students, according to a new College Reaction/Axios poll.
The big picture: Warren's move to the top among college students matches her recent trend in national polls, as well as state polls in New Hampshire, California and Iowa.
By the numbers:
- In July, Biden led at 16.4%, followed by Trump (16.3%), Sanders (15.1%) and Warren (13.7%).
- Only 61% of Republican students support Trump, compared to 88% of Republicans in the broader population in a recent Economist/YouGov poll. 11% support Biden.
- Since July, Andrew Yang has seen the biggest surge in polling. His 10.4% among students is well above his national average of 3.3%.
The poll was conducted from Sept. 23-24 from a representative sample of 586 college students with a margin of error of +/- 4%.
