A newly released Capitol Weekly tracking poll shows Bernie Sanders’ lead in the Golden State climbing to 13 points.

Overall, 29 percent said they would support Bernie Sanders, an increase of 4 percent on last month’s poll. Elizabeth Warren came in at second with 16 percent support, a 5 percent drop.

Pete Buttigieg received a modest 3 percent increase, moving into third place with 14 percent support. Michael Bloomberg saw the biggest boost on last month’s poll, climbing to 13 percent support.

Former vice president Joe Biden saw the biggest drop in the survey, down 11 percent in just one month. He came in fifth place with only 11 percent support.

Sanders’ lead was strongest with voters aged between 18 to 34, with 54 percent saying they would vote for the Vermont Senator. Sanders was also the favorite among low-income voters.

The survey of 843 likely voters was conducted between February 6 and 9. It comes on the same day as a Quinnipiac poll shows Sanders with an eight point lead nationally.
