Warren topped the poll in part by chewing into key demographics for Biden and Sanders. The Massachusetts lawmaker cut her deficit on Biden to 2 points among voters aged 65 years and older and is only behind Sanders by 3 points among voters aged 18-29. She also leads among white voters with 31 percent support, compared to 18 percent for Biden and 13 percent for Sanders.

Warren also edges out Biden by 5 points among self-identified Democrats, 28 percent to 23 percent, though the poll shows a stiff competition for independents, with both Warren and Biden coming in at 20 percent and Sanders getting 18 percent among such voters. 

However, she still struggles with voters of color, trailing Biden by a 36-15 percent margin among black voters and by a 22-17 percent margin among Hispanics. 

Wednesday’s survey matches similar polling that has signaled a new division within the primary field, with Warren, Biden and Sanders making up its top tier while relegating candidates like Harris, Buttigieg and others to its middle tier.

The Economist/YouGov poll surveyed 1,087 registered voters from Sept. 28-Oct. 1 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
