Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken the lead among Democratic voters in California, according to a new poll.

With 26 percent support, Sanders outpaces Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) 20 percent and former Vice President Joe Biden's 15 percent. The poll was conducted by the Los Angeles Times and the University of California, Berkeley.

The results come a little more than a month before Super Tuesday, which takes place on March 3 and is the day when numerous states will hold presidential primaries. California and Texas, the two most populous states in the nation, will hold primaries on Super Tuesday. California's primary will determine 40 percent of delegates for the Democratic Convention.

In September, the last time this poll was conducted, Sanders garnered 19 percent support among Democratic voters.
