Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is leading in the next Democratic primary state, according to a new poll published Friday.

Sanders leads the rest of the Democratic presidential field with 25% of the vote, according to a poll published Friday by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Sanders followed by former Vice President Joe Biden, who claims 18% of the vote, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren who claims 13% of the vote, and businessman Tom Steyer who claims 11% of the vote. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg both polled at 10%. The poll was conducted among 413 likely caucus-goers, and has a margin of error of roughly 4.8%. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Is Now The Democratic Front-Runner, And That Should Worry Republicans)
