Candidates have until Dec. 12 to meet the qualifications, which include earning 4% or more support in at least four polls, or hitting 6% support in two early state polls. Those states include Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or Nevada. Candidates must also get at least 200,000 unique donors to qualify for the debates.

Sanders' polling average is at 16.2 percent, followed by Warren at 14 percent. Buttigieg is the only other candidate with an average in the double digits, standing at 11.4 percent, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

The same four candidates are also on top of polling, in various orders, in the other early states of New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

But Masket warned that there was still time for another candidate to make a run at the top tier.

"There's still time in the next two months for Buttigieg to fall, for another candidate to rise," Masket said. "And maybe for that cycle to repeat itself several times, so I don't know that ... where the polls are today is a great indication of where they're going to end up two months."

Bennett said that John Kerry was "basically dead and buried in December of 2003" but went on to win the caucuses in 2004, which helped propel him to become the Democratic nominee.

Voters likely will continue to see polling shift in Iowa and elsewhere. In the past 10 contested caucuses, only three candidates who were leading polls in December have gone on to win Iowa, according to historic data from The Des Moines Register. Those candidates were Walter Mondale in 1984, Al Gore in 2000 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Bennett, who worked on several presidential campaigns, including Bill Clinton and Wesley Clark, noted that some candidates began seeing poll movement in December, including then-Sen. Barack Obama. Obama, who started gaining traction in late December both in Iowa and nationally, went on to win the Iowa caucuses in 2008 before becoming the party's nominee and being elected president.

He noted it's unclear what historical precedent will factor in during this election cycle.

"It's very difficult to say whether candidates who have not yet made their move in the polls are hopeless, or whether they're more, you know John Kerry types you can bolt from the back, just at the right moment," Bennett said.
