New polling released from the Super Tuesday states of Oklahoma and Virginia shows Bernie Sanders tied for first place with businessman Michael Bloomberg.

In Virginia, a Monmouth poll shows Sanders and Bloomberg with 22 percent overall, while former vice president Joe Biden is in third with 18 percent.

Finishing fourth was Pete Buttigieg on 11 percent, followed by Amy Klobuchar on 9 percent and Elizabeth Warren on 5 percent.

A CHS & Associates poll of Oklahoma Democratic primary voters also shows a tight race for first place, with Bloomberg and Sanders on 18 percent and 17 percent support respectively.

Joe Biden also finished third in the Oklahoma poll with 11 percent support, followed by Pete Buttigieg on 9 percent, Elizabeth Warren on 8 percent and Amy Klobuchar on 7 percent.

Despite the closeness of these polls, FiveThirtyEight’s Democratic primary forecast still shows Sanders with the best chance of winning the most votes in both states on Super Tuesday.

The Virginia and Oklahoma primaries are two of more than a dozen contests on Super Tuesday on March 3.
