Following strong finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., now holds a double-digit lead over other Democratic presidential contenders in a new national poll.

According to the Washington Post-ABC poll, 32% of Democratic voters said they would vote for Sanders, a nine-point gain from January's poll.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who had previously led in the poll, saw his support halved from 32% to 16%, putting him in second place.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg surged from 8% to 14%, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., saw her support remain constant at 12%.

Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg polled at 8%, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., at 7%, businessman Tom Steyer at 2%, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, at 1%.
