  • Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg speaks during a house party Friday

Joe Biden leads as the top choice of likely participants in the first-in-the-nation Iowa Democratic Caucuses. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Mayor Pete Buttigieg surging in the polls in Iowa.

For months, Democratic officials in Iowa have said Biden's support in polls overrepresents the level of organization or excitement for his candidacy among the party's most committed activists.

The drop off for support of other candidates is steep as no other Democratic presidential hopeful cracks double digits. The nearest candidate behind Biden, Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg is California Senator Kamala Harris, who only has 7 percent of support from Iowa voters. "This time we've got a whole lot of candidates and I don't think anybody is going to reach 50 percent". "And some of these candidates who've been under the radar start to surface and compete with Joe Biden".

Buttigieg also railed against policies by the department of State and Health and Human Services that he said prevent same-sex couples from adopting children internationally, and prevent transgender Americans from getting health care.

More than 20 Democrats are vying for the right to challenge Republican President Donald Trump, who will formally launch his re-election bid on 18 June.

In March, before Biden formally entered the race, he and Sanders held a commanding lead, with 27% and 25% support according to the Register's polling, which has always been judged by campaigns as the best in the state. Sanders runs second to Biden in most polls. Biden also led in the last poll in March, with Sanders in second. Warren and Harris were in third and fourth place in March, and Buttigieg was largely unknown. The number is substantially higher, 39%, among all those who list another candidate as their first choice.

The poll comes on the eve of Iowa's first major political event of the summer campaign season - a state Democratic Party gathering Sunday in Cedar Rapids that 19 of the candidates are expected to attend.

The poll was conducted between June 2 and 5, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
