Results from the most recent update

Our latest results are based on 36,563 surveys with registered voters, including 15,974 surveys with Democratic primary voters, conducted Feb. 12-17, 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 “Super Tuesday Voters” demographic consists of 5,318 voters in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia, and also has a margin of error of plus or minus 1 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.
