The newest Quinnipiac survey of Pennsylvania Democrats shows Clinton leading Biden 36% to 25%.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders finishes in third with 19%.
Most of Biden’s support, though, is coming at the expense of Clinton. For instance, Sanders is at the same level of support as he was in August. The VP, on the other hand, has gained six points while the ex-Secretary of State has dropped nine points.
Furthermore when Quinnipiac took Biden out of the list of candidates, Clinton got 51% while Sanders received 25%.
Rounding out the rest of the field were Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Larry Lessig who all got 1%.
