The results from Wednesday’s survey are similar to last week’s Economist-YouGov tracking poll, which had Biden at 24 percent, Warren at 20 percent and Sanders at 14 percent.

Recent surveys have shown Biden, Warren and Sanders consistently ranking among the top three, with other candidates often in single-digits. 

Warren and Sanders continue to fare well with younger voters, hitting 23 percent and 21 percent, respectively, among voters aged 18–29, according to the latest Economist-YouGov poll.

Meanwhile, Biden performs well with older voters, hitting 53 percent among voters aged 65 years and older, as well as voters of color, sitting at 46 percent support among black voters and 30 percent among Hispanic voters.

The Economist-YouGov poll surveyed 1,069 registered voters from Sept. 1 to 3 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
