Warren’s support is also more evenly distributed between Americans of different ages, while Biden’s support is largest among older voters and Sanders is most popular with younger Democrats, based on the poll.  

The poll found Warren has 24 percent support among voters 18 to 29 and 31 percent from voters 65 and older. Biden has just 9 percent of support from voters 18 to 29, and Sanders has just 5 percent of voters 65 and older. 

Biden maintains the largest support from black voters, though, at 34 percent, based on the poll. 

The poll was conducted from Sept. 22 to 24. It surveyed 1,500 people and 1,198 registered voters. There is a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points and 2.9 percentage points for registered voters.
