Former Vice President Joe Biden's lead amongst different Democratic presidential contenders is at its widest margin since he launched his marketing campaign in April, a ballot launched Wednesday exhibits.
It's an encouraging sign for the former vice president, who has been on the verge of losing his front-runner status to rival Elizabeth Warren. None of the other 15 (!) candidates in the race made it into double digits. But a month later, the same poll in October showed Warren rising from 9% to 19% and Biden climbing to 34%, while Sanders slid to 19%.
The shift was, perhaps, a signal that Biden's campaign has been watching a handful of recent polls that show his slipping support among white, working-class voters-a crucial demographic for his bid for the White House. He also registered a 14 percentage-point gain among racial and ethnic minorities and a 13-point gain among voters 45 and older.

Among those who watched or paid close attention to news coverage of the OH debate, 28 percent said Warren "did the best job", and only 15 percent said Biden's showing was superior. Elizabeth Warren was treated as the frontrunner in the last Democratic debate, she still technically isn't, at least according to the polls. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang each at 2 percent. Among those who say they watched it, though, Warren remains on top at 29%, but 21% say Buttigieg had the best night, then 13% Biden, 11% Sanders, 10% Klobuchar and 4% Booker, with everyone else at 1% or less. First, there is the perception among some of them that her left-wing stands, such as Medicare for All, are too risky for the general election and decrease the party's chances of defeating President Trump.
"Earlier this month, Biden had said that President Trump won't destroy me or my family over the latter's call for an investigation against the former Vice President and his son".
