The ballot finds fifty-two percent of Democrats registered voters who want to perceive Biden as the winner. Whereas, thirty-six percent of voters want to see Sanders as the conqueror. Elizabeth Warren, the Senator of Massachusetts who dropped out of the contest on Thursday, only took seven percent support in the poll. That is mainly due to her eighteen percent showing in interviews led on Wednesday before she withdraws her as a Democratic nominee.

While six percent choose someone else contender or were not sure to whom they would support.
