Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Disaster ahead in NV: Bernie leads -- but six Dems in double digits?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

If Democrats hope to narrow the field in their presidential primary, they’ll have to look past Nevada’s caucuses. With a week to go — and with early voting set to start today — six candidates now poll in double digits in the latest Review-Journal/AARP survey. Bernie Sanders leads with 25%, but Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are not far behind, with Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar all getting 10% or more as well.

Sanders led the pack with 25 percent of respondents expressing support, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden (18 percent) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (13 percent).

Businessman Tom Steyer (11 percent), former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (10 percent) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (10 percent) were clustered close behind. …

Five percent of respondents chose another candidate. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Sen. Michael Bennet and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick dropped out of the race on Feb. 11.

Even if this were a primary, an outcome like this would be problematic for Democrats. Bernie still leads in this poll by enough outside the margin of error to ensure he gets the plurality of delegates, but at least two more would get a delegate tranche out of this, too. However, it’s not the same two who got delegates out of New Hampshire, one of whom didn’t get delegates out of Iowa either.
