With nearly two dozen Democrats already in the race, former Vice President Joe Biden continues to open up an early lead against his 2020 presidential primary rivals.

In a recent Hill-HarrisX poll, a whopping 46 percent of respondents said he should be the party’s nominee.

That lead represents an advantage of 32 percentage points over his nearest competitor, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

From there, the crowded field battles for single-digit support.

Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Ind., comes in third with 8 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one point behind him.

Sen. Kamala Harris garnered support from 6 percent of respondents. Both Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Beto O’Rourke received 3 percent. The rest of the field earned 2 percent or less in the polling results.

Of course, even the earliest primary votes are still months away. And the poll excluded answers indicating that respondents had not decided on a candidate.
