Biden, Sanders and Warren top national poll

The New York Times/Sienna College Poll placed Pete Buttigieg, the openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana, just a few points behind Senators Elizabeth Warren of MA and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and placed former Vice President Joe Biden in fourth.

Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA climbed to 21 percent from 17 percent, while Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, stood at 7 percent after gaining four more points, according to the new poll.

The poll found Biden with 27 percent support from Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, unchanged from an early September survey.

The question was: "Which of the following candidates are you most likely to vote for in a Democratic primary?"

Warren received 22 percent in the poll, while Sanders had 19.

- 49 of those polled in both the Fox News poll and NBC/Wall Street Journal poll want Trump impeached and removed from office.

- More than 50 percent of those polled in the Fox News poll said they thought Biden, Warren and Sanders could beat Trump in 2020, led by Biden at 68 percent. The poll also showed Buttigieg at 6%, Minnesota Sen. The results mark a new high in the poll for the senator, ABC News noted. But among voters under the age of 45, Biden holds only 2 percent of the vote.

The polls come two days after the field lost a candidate - former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who struggled to gain a decent amount of support in recent national polls. Warren, on the other hand, led the pack when it came to mental sharpness, with 24% of Democrats saying she has the sharpest mental ability.

Seventy-four % say Biden is wholesome sufficient, and 80 % say Warren is. Only 30 percent thought Buttigieg could.

The ballot was performed nationally between October 27-30 and surveyed 1,003 adults throughout the nation.

The Harvard CAPS/Harris survey gathered responses from 1,810 nationally registered voters.

The NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll was conducted by phone from October 27-30 from a random sample of 900 adults.
