This is the second poll that has Warren in the number one spot.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) holds an 8-point lead over the Democratic primary field in California, according to a poll released Monday.
The Massachusetts lawmaker was the top choice of 29 percent of the Democratic voters and minority party or independent voters eligible to vote in California’s primary surveyed by Political Data Inc. on behalf of Capitol Weekly.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), at 21 percent, and former Vice President Joe Biden, at 18 percent, followed Warren.
California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) was the only other candidate with double-digit support, at 11 percent.
The poll is the latest in a string of positive results for Warren, who this weekend led in Iowa for the first time in polling guru Ann Selzer’s state survey.
Harris’s fourth place shows the lawmaker struggling in her home state, a concerning result for her campaign given that no recent presidential hopeful who lost their home state in a primary has gone on to win their party’s nomination.
I think Kamala Harris is all but finished in this primary.
She had a brief surge after confronting Biden on the debate stage but since then she has consistently been in the single digits. Until this poll from her home state of course.
On the other hand it appears that Elizabeth Warren continues to rise in virtually every poll, and only gets stronger as a potential candidate to face off against Trump in the general.
