Raleigh, N.C. – PPP’s newest poll in Iowa finds a tale of two primaries. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton continues to lead all potential candidates by wide margins. She keeps 67% of the Democratic vote, while the only other candidates to garner support were Joe Biden at 12%, Elizabeth Warren at 5%, Mark Warner at 3%, Andrew Cuomo at 2%, and Cory Booker at 1%. The 67% figure is down slightly from when we polled in July (71%), but that decrease in support seems to have gone to voters now unsure about whom they will vote for instead of any specific candidate. Clinton fares best among those identifying as very liberal (79% of the vote) and women (71%). While her favorability rating is also down slightly from July, 82% of Democratic voters still view her favorably, compared to only 9% who view her unfavorably.
When Clinton is out of the picture, the main beneficiary is Joe Biden, who becomes the frontrunner with 40% of the vote. Elizabeth Warren also emerges as a contender with 13%. In a scenario with neither Clinton nor Biden, Warren leads all candidates with 21% of the vote. Both Biden and Warren boast strong favorability ratings at 66/13 and 43/8, respectively.
