With Biden, Warren absent, Sanders is star of California forum

Democratic presidential hopeful Massachusetts' Senator Elizabeth Warren leaves the stage at a rally outside the New Hampshire State House after signing papers to officially enter the New Hampshire Primary race in Concord New Hamp

"There have been four candidates that have sort of jostled around in a pack together, but he has a sizable lead over the nearest contender - nine points", Selzer told the Des Moines Register.

Buttigieg has the support of 25 percent of likely participants in the February 3 Iowa caucuses, up 16 percentage points from September, the Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa poll showed.

No different candidates managed to crack double digits, in keeping with the survey.

Several Democratic candidates, including Biden and Buttigieg, have proposed plans similar to the first phase of Warren's health care plan, which would allow Americans to buy into a public option. He was trailed by Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who came in second with 16 percent, nine points behind Buttigieg. Sanders' campaign has already hired 40 staff members in California, far more than any of his competitors, and is treating the state as comparable to early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire.

"That's extremely encouraging, obviously", Buttigieg said, speaking to reporters after the poll came out at the California Democrats Convention in Long Beach.

Ann Selzer, president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the latest poll, said the latest figure pointed to a "new status" for Buttigieg who, at 72%, showed the highest favorability of all the candidates.

Since June, Biden, Warren and Buttigieg have all taken turns atop the poll. "We have felt a lot of momentum on the ground".

But the latest rollout has underscored the political challenge she faces on Medicare for All, a policy some of her more centrist opponents have argued would hurt Democrats in the general election by turning off moderates and swing voters anxious about too much government involvement in personal health care decisions.

Biden places second in the "about right" category with 55 percent, though that is down from 70 percent in March. Only 7 percent say his views are too liberal, while 13 percent feel they're too conservative.

Buttigieg, 37, has invested heavily in Iowa from the start.

"This is still a very fluid race", congresswoman Mia Love, the only black Republican woman in Congress, told Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Nation.

Biden and Buttigieg were also viewed as the most moderate of the top four candidates, with 63 percent saying the South Bend mayor was "about right", and not "too liberal" or "too conservative". Warren says she'll then work with Congress to pass pieces of a universal coverage proposal more gradually, with the whole thing being ready "no later than" her third year in office.

Taking years to get to Medicare for All would give Warren time to convince people happy with their current, private insurance to accept a fully government-funded system.
