(Bloomberg) -- Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders holds a comfortable lead in a new poll in Nevada ahead of the state’s caucuses.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal/AARP Nevada poll showed Sanders with 25% support, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden at 18% and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 13%.
Hedge fund founder Tom Steyer came in fourth with 11%, essentially tied with Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar at 10%. Another 8% were undecided.
The poll also asked respondents about how the election is run. Slightly more than two-thirds of registered Nevada voters support switching from a caucus to a primary, while 23% wouldn’t support a change.
The survey of 413 likely caucus-goers was conducted Feb. 11-13. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.
Michael Bloomberg isn’t on the ballot in Nevada and wasn’t included in the poll.
