Poll: Bloomberg Moves Up to 3rd Place in new Dem Primary Poll

Joe Biden 28%
Crazy Bernie 16%
Bloomberg 11%...Up from 5% in the last poll

A new Democratic presidential primary poll shows former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg more than doubling his percentage to reach a tie for third place with Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The number of voters favoring the former mayor jumped from 5 percent to 11 percent, according to a Hill-HarrisX national poll released Friday. The total elevates Bloomberg into a third-place tie with Warren, one of his sharpest critics since he entered the race on November 24.

Former Vice President Joe Biden maintains his lead in the poll with 28 percent, a one percent drop since the last poll taken in mid-December. Senator Bernie Sanders took second place with 16 percent, a three point gain from the last poll.

Warren's numbers have been declining in multiple recent polls. The new poll indicates that the Massachusetts senator is now in a dead heat with the billionaire Bloomberg, who she has repeatedly accused of attempting to "buy" his way into the nomination.
