Our Last Poll Before The Caucus

Joe Biden led our first poll in September of 2019, and he finds himself on top again in our final survey before caucus day. Sen. Elizabeth Warren remains in second, while Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders are in close competition for the third and fourth place positions. Sen. Klobuchar finds herself in fifth, but hits a key metric — she is perceived as the best candidate for rural America. 

July 2019 Poll results

Focus on Rural America went into the field after the first Democratic debates of the cycle. The Results? A very close three-way contest in the Iowa 2020 Democratic caucus. Warren with slight lead over Harris, Biden. Sanders and Buttigieg only other candidates with double digit support.
