Results from the most recent update

This page was last updated on April 7, 2020.

Our latest results are based on 30,985 surveys with registered voters, including 13,346 surveys with Democratic primary voters, conducted March 30 through April 5, 2020. The interviews were conducted online, and the data were weighted to approximate a target sample of registered voters based on age, race/ethnicity, gender, educational attainment, and region.

Our Democratic primary results are reported using interviews with registered voters who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucus in their state. Those who say they don’t know or have no opinion are asked to pick a candidate they are leaning toward. Results are reported among first choice and those who lean toward a candidate. The responses among all Democratic primary voters have a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percentage point.

The “Hypothetical General-Election Matchups” section displays responses among all registered voters — not just those who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucus in their state — and those matchups also have a margin of error of plus or minus 1 point.

In the case of a tie, candidates are ordered alphabetically by last name.
