South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg landed in third in the latest Suffolk University/USA Today poll. The pollsters asked “500 likely Iowa Democratic caucusgoers.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden remains in first, but only one point in front of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Iowa - Caucus - Place - Days

The Iowa caucus takes place in 105 days.

The poll had more good news for Buttigieg because 14% of the respondents chose him as their second choice. 22% of them picked Warren in that category.

Buttigieg - Place - June - Poll - %

Buttigieg landed in fifth place in the June poll at 6%. Biden held first place at 24% with Warren behind him at 16%.

Buttigieg has gained more attention after a few strong debates. He made headlines after the fourth debate when he took on Warren because she has not admitted the Medicare for All plan would raise taxes on the middle class.
