After remaining one of the top two candidates in national polls for the past few months, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is losing ground.
In a Quinnipiac University poll released this week, Joe Biden took the lead, and in a surprise to many, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg jumped to second place, knocking Warren to third. Sen. Bernie Sanders lost two points and is no longer one of the top three candidates.

Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy said:
“Biden is back on top of the pack but now there is a three-way race for second. Buttigieg has broken into the top tier, apparently at the expense of Warren, who has taken a dive after being hammered for being too far left on health care and other issues.”
One of the reasons that analysts think Warren’s numbers have dropped is because of her Medicare for All policy, which is becoming less popular with American voters. In the Quinnipiac poll, 36% of voters think the policy is a good idea, compared to 52% being against it.
The poll surveyed 574 Democratic and independent voters.
