Sanders held an overwhelming advantage among voters under age 45, who backed him at 64 percent, and Hispanic voters, who supported him at 66 percent. No other candidate registered in the double digits for Hispanic support.

The independent senator also has the highest net favorability rate at 38 percent, with 68 percent having a favorable view of him and 30 percent unfavorable. Warren followed with a 35 percent net favorability rate.

Sanders won the New Hampshire primary last week and came in a close second to Buttigieg in Iowa the week before.

Nevada will be the most diverse state for the 2020 candidates so far, so a Sanders win would further solidify him as a front-runner.
