Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seeing the results of the $270 million he has personally spent on campaign advertising, with a national poll putting him at 12 percent among would-be voters in this year's Democratic primaries.

The results from a Morning Consult poll situate Bloomberg above former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who polled at seven percent. Also polling below Bloomberg are Andrew Yang, with five percent, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), with three percent.

Despite Bloomberg's progress, he still trails the field's three most popular candidates.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) sat close in the poll results, with 29 percent and 23 percent support, respectively. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came in at 14 percent.
