Joe Biden leads South Carolina by eight points, Bernie Sanders comes in second, new poll says
Former Vice President Joe Biden has an eight-point lead over Vermont Senator Bernie South Carolina , according to new polling data released Friday by East Carolina University.
Democrats Former Vice President Joe Biden leads the field of Democratic presidential candidates in South Carolina with 28 percent of likely voters giving him their support, according to polling data released Friday by East Carolina University (ECU). Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders took second place in the poll with 20 percent while billionaire Tom Steyer placed third with 14 percent. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg received 8 percent to take fourth place while Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar rounded out the top five with 7 percent. While Biden still holds a substantial lead over his opponents with 28 percent of voter support, the numbers show his lead has declined by nine points since the last ECU survey, which was taken before the Iowa caucuses. Biden claimed 37 percent in that previous poll while Steyer nabbed second place with 19 percent. Sanders was in third place with 14 percent. Sanders overtook Steyer in Friday's poll results with an increase of six percentage points. This could mean a strong contest between Biden and Sanders during the South Carolina presidential primary which is expected to take place on the last day of February 2019. Former Vice President Joe Biden is ahead in South Carolina ahead of the primaries, according to poll numbers released Friday. Sean Rayford/Getty Newsweek reached out to the Biden campaign for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication. Biden, who has spoken about his support for the"black community" in the past, may be counting on African American voters in South Carolina to help him make a good showing in the primaries, something Biden has failed to do in either the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primaries in February. "I'm part of that Obama coalition," Biden said during the fifth Democratic debate in November 2019."I come out of the black community, in terms of my support. If you notice, I have more people supporting me in the black community that have announced for me because they know me. They know who I am." Related Stories Read more: Newsweek

Bernie Sanders overtakes Joe Biden in Texas, former vice president holds strong lead in Georgia: Polls Joe Biden told a New York City fundraiser that the 'African-American community is going to make a gigantic say in who is going to be the next president.' If Sanders wins California and Texas, it’s over. Anyone that thinks Bernie will do anything in a presidency is crazy. Bernie has been in congress where he has spent 30 years with ZERO BILLS.. EXCEPT NAMING PO. GET REAL. BERNIE IS FAKE This has less to do with Bernie and more to do with the fact that the DNC keeps pushing unelectable candidates. Joe can barely string a coherent sentence together at this point.
