Buttigieg jumped from 10 percent to 16 percent in the same timeframe, while Warren's support was halved, from 28 to 14 per cent.

Sanders, a staunch progressive, also has a lead among voters who identify as very liberal, while Buttigieg leads with primary voters who identify as somewhat liberal or moderate/conservative.

Fourteen percent of those polled backed Warren, while Biden enjoyed support of 24 percent of those voters, according to the survey. Biden's 17=point edge over Buttigieg in the full horserace is 18 points in the four-way.

The South Bend mayor has experienced a notable surge in early primary and caucus states in recent days, in Iowa and New Hampshire, particularly.

Former Vice President Joe Biden regained the lead in the Democratic primary race for the USA presidency while support for Senator Elizabeth Warren plunged 14 percentage points from October, the latest Quinnipiac University poll revealed. Biden improved from 21 percent in October to 2 percent in the new poll, while Mayor Pete improved to second place with 16 percent, up from 14 percent in October.

The Quinnipiac poll offers mixed news for 77-year-old Bloomberg, who, on Tuesday, said he would release his tax returns without specifying how many years of records would be made public.

As of Tuesday evening, Warren had not tweeted about the new poll.

The founder of Bloomberg LP has an extremely narrow path to the nomination and starts from a low base, but three percent in the Quinnipiac poll puts him on a par with second-tier candidates Harris and Klobuchar and ahead of Cory Booker, who is struggling to meet the polling threshold to make it onto the Democratic debate stage in December. Another 19% say they prefer Warren's approach, which ultimately results in government health coverage for all, while 7% choose Buttigieg, and no other candidate has the backing of more than 3% on the issue.

"Bernie is in the pocket of #BigUs", supporters online were saying as they shared the ad and the message on social media.
