An Emerson College poll had Sanders at 29 percent, leading Biden's 22 percent by seven points. Bloomberg came in third with 14 percent of support from voters nationally.

Morning Consult's latest poll showed Sanders leading by eight points with 28 percent, while Bloomberg came in second with 20 percent and Biden following closely behind on 19 percent.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll saw Sanders leading by double digits with 27 percent, while Biden followed 12 points behind on 15 percent. Bloomberg and Warren tied for third, each garnering 14 percent.

According to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, Sanders, again, led the field with 25 percent, with Bloomberg in second at 17 percent. Biden followed in third with 13 percent and Buttigieg in fourth garnering 11 percent.

A recent SurveyUSA poll showed Sanders leading the field by 11 points with 29 percent of support among voters, while Bloomberg and Biden tied for second after having garnered 18 percent each.

This week's NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist College poll showed Sanders maintaining a strong lead with 31 percent. Bloomberg came in second with 19 percent, and Biden fell to third at 15 percent.

Lastly, a Zogby Analytics survey had Sanders in first place by four points with 24 percent of support. Bloomberg and Biden followed in second and third with 20 and 18 percent respectively.

Newsweek reached out to Sanders' campaign for comment.

"There is one clear and inescapable set of results: Bernie Sanders is the definitive front-runner, and the current numbers do not represent his ceiling, but instead his base with room to grow," said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who co-conducted the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll with Republican pollster Bill McInturff.

According to FiveThirtyEight, a polling website that focuses on politics, economics and sports, Sanders' national polling average, after taking into account the 10 polls this week, is currently at 25.3 percent, a three point increase from his position 10 days ago.

While Bloomberg and Biden are roughly tied for second place, they both appear to be moving in opposite directions. Bloomberg, a newcomer to the field who will take the debate stage for the first time in Nevada tonight, has been trending up in the polls, while Biden has seen a drop in his support after a disappointing run in early voting states.
