Former Vice President Joe Biden has dropped sharply in a new national Quinnipiac University poll, tumbling to a distant second place as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) jumps to first.

In the new poll, Biden had the support of 17 percent of Democratic voters, while Sanders commands 25 percent of that voting demographic. That is a significant change from a January 28 poll that showed Biden at 26 percent and Sanders at five points less.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, meanwhile, edged out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to secure a third place standing of 15 percent. Warren herself fell one point below that.

Here are the poll results:

  • Sanders 25%
  • Biden 17%
  • Mike Bloomberg 15%
  • Elizabeth Warren 14%
  • Pete Buttigieg 10%
  • Amy Klobuchar 4%

Here are the point differentials the candidates experienced since the previous month's polling:

  • Sanders +4%
  • Biden -9%
  • Bloomberg +7%
  • Warren -1%
  • Buttigieg +4%
