Former Vice President Joe Biden maintains a national lead over his fellow Democratic 2020 presidential candidates, a CNN poll released Wednesday shows.

Twenty-eight percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote say that they prefer to vote for the former vice president over the other Democratic candidates, according to the CNN poll SSRS conducted.

Biden’s support has fallen almost 6 percentage points since an October CNN poll found him holding 34% of Democratic voters. (RELATED: Here’s How Joe Biden Has Evolved On Abortion As He Attempts To Become President)
