Joe Biden Surges to Double-Digit Lead Over Bernie Sanders After Super Tuesday Wins

Former Vice President Joe Biden broke open a large lead over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders after winning the majority of Super Tuesday races in a landslide.

Biden leads with 45% while Sanders trails at 32%, according to the latest Reuters-Ipsos poll.

The shift in the race has been dramatic after Biden’s comeback following Sanders’ three popular vote wins to kick off the primaries.

The last Reuters-Ipsos poll showed Sanders leading Biden by 11%, a 24-point swing.

The poll was conducted before Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the race.

The poll found that Warren's supporters are expected to roughly split between the two remaining candidates.

54% of respondents said Biden had the best chance to defeat Trump while just 25% said Sanders had the best shot to win.

Biden has massive lead in Florida:

As if the national numbers weren’t bad enough for Sanders, a new St. Pete Polls survey showed Biden leading Sanders by 49 points.

The poll shows Biden leading the pack with 61%. The poll showed former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg in second place with 13%, but Bloomberg dropped out of the race after failing to make a dent on Super Tuesday despite spending more than a half-billion dollars.

Sanders is polling at just 12% in Florida, according to the survey.

Biden leads in Michigan:

A Detroit News poll also showed Biden leading Sanders in the upcoming Michigan primary.

The poll shows Biden leading Sanders 29-23, but many voters backed candidates that are no longer in the race.

If Michigan shapes up like other states, Sanders may be in line for yet another tough loss despite eking out a win in the state in his 2016 bid against Hillary Clinton.
