In a Change Research poll released Wednesday, Bernie Sanders’ lead in the Golden State has blown out to 17 points.

Overall, 37 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in California said Sanders was their first choice. Elizabeth Warren came in a very distant second with 20 percent support.

Joe Biden finished third with 10 percent, followed closely by Pete Buttigieg, who had 9 percent support in the survey. Michael Bloomberg was the first choice of just 5 percent of respondents, while 4 percent said they supported Amy Klobuchar.

Sanders leads among voters of all ages, though his support is greatest among young voters. The Vermont Senator also holds a commanding lead with Latino voters.

The survey of 1,069 likely Democratic primary voters was conducted between February 20 and 23.
