Joe Biden holds a clear lead over sen Bernie Sanders in Arizona, according to a new poll published on the eve of the state’s presidential primary.

A Monmouth University poll released on Monday, the former Vice-President with 51 percent support among likely Democratic presidential primary voters. Sanders, the populist legislature of Vermont, makes his second straight White house led – stands at 31 percent. This is 20 percentage points behind Biden.


Arizona joins Florida, Illinois, and Ohio to hold democratic nominating contests on Tuesday. As now, officials in all four States plan to go ahead with their primaries in spite of to close much of the country, such as the Corona-Virus outbreak from spreading. Polls in all four States, Biden holding show two-digit range.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii – the only other remaining candidate left in the battle for the democratic nomination secured by only 1 percent.

In the Biden-Sanders face-off, the survey, Sanders shows with a 48-41 percent edge among Latino voters and a large 56-28 percent lead among voters under 50 years of age. But Biden, a large 29-points lead among white voters and an overwhelming 48-point lead among voters 50 years of age and older.

“Biden has a strong advantage in the elementary school. This is because much of his support has already been filled in the early vote. The closure of many polling stations due to COVID-19 it is uncertain how many of the voters, the planned vote on Tuesday will actually show,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a statement.

The survey suggests that just over half of likely primary voters have already cast ballots, with Biden, a nearly two-to-one margin over Sanders among the voters.


With a view to the November elections, the poll shows Biden with a slight 46-43 percent advantage over President trump, while the Republican incumbent has a slight 44-43 percent edge over Sanders.

Trump crowned the 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by 4 points in Arizona four years ago – and the state is one of the few battleground States in the 2020 election.

The Monmouth University poll, March 11-14, with 847 voters – including 373 likely to vote in the Democratic presidential primary – asked by live telephone operators. The survey’s overall sampling error is 3.4 percentage points, with an error rate of 5.1% – points for democratic primary questions.
