A Forbes-Zogby poll released Thursday shows Bernie Sanders with a staggering double-digit lead among young voters.

Sanders was the clear favorite of survey respondents, aged between 18 and 29 years old. 32 percent said they would support Sanders, with Joe Biden finishing a very distant second with 16 percent.

All other candidates in the race registered just single-digit support, with Elizabeth Warren and Michael Bloomberg tied for third place at 9 percent.

Former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has polled well in early states, bombed in the poll, receiving just 5 percent support.

“Millennials and Generation Z are defining the issues that are shaping this year’s presidential contest, but they also appear to back candidates who they think have the most-realistic chance of ousting President Donald Trump in November,” said Randall Lane, Forbes Chief Content Officer and architect of the new survey.
