Clinton’s Lead Drops Further as Interest in Biden Grows

Hillary Clinton’s lead among Democrats nationwide is continuing to recede, according to the latest nationwide Monmouth University poll released Tuesday morning.

But unlike in past months, it’s not just independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the former secretary of state’s rear-view mirror. This time, Vice President Joe Biden, who has been entertaining the possibility of a run, is effectively tied with Sanders in second place among Democrats nationwide.

In the latest Monmouth survey, Clinton drew 42 percent to Biden’s 22 percent. Sanders picked up 20 percent, while 10 percent were undecided and all other candidates earned 1 percent or less. In last month’s Monmouth poll, Clinton picked up 52 percent, compared with 16 percent for Sanders and 12 percent for Biden.
