Surprise: Democrat Candidate Now Leading Iowa is a Minority Person of Color

Elizabeth Warren I mean. She's a minority person of color.

Iowa is now officially a Happy Hunting Ground.

Elizabeth Warren has surged in Iowa, narrowly overtaking Joe Biden and distancing herself from fellow progressive Bernie Sanders, the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows.

Warren, the U.S. senator from Massachusetts, now holds a 2-percentage-point lead, with 22% of likely Democratic caucusgoers saying she is their first choice for president. It is the first time she has led in the Registerís poll.

Former Vice President Biden, who had led each of the Registerís three previous 2020 cycle polls, follows her at 20%. Sanders, the U.S. senator from Vermont, has fallen to third place with 11%.

No other candidate reaches double digits.

"This is the first major shakeup" in what had been a fairly steady race, said J. Ann Selzer, president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll. "It's the first time we've had someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the leader board."
