(Newser) – There is a new top dog in Iowa polling, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren having put the nation's former No. 2 politician Joe Biden firmly into the No. 2 spot: She now leads him 22% to 20%, marking the first time the former vice president has trailed in the Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll, CNN reports. That's up seven percentage points for Warren and down three for Biden. Bernie Sanders trails at 11%, but is the only other candidate in double digits; the Vermont senator, however, has dropped five percentage points since the last poll in June. The rest of the field:

  • South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg: 9%
  • Sen. Kamala Harris: 6%
  • Sen. Cory Booker: 3%
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar: 3%
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: 2%
  • Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke: 2%
  • Tom Steyer: 2%
  • Andrew Yang: 2%
The rest of the field garners 1% or less. (Read more Iowa caucuses stories.)
