Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has widened his lead against the other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, according to a new national poll by the Washington Post/ABC News.
Sanders scored a 9% boost over the outlets' January poll, garnering 32% support among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters following strong results in Iowa and New Hampshire contests, Bloomberg reports.
Joe Biden, meanwhile, sank to 17%, followed closely by Michael Bloomberg at 14% and Elizabeth Warren at 12%.
