Former Vice President Joe Biden is the leading Democratic candidate for president — even though he is not yet in the race — among Iowa Democrats.

Key results in the Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll:

  • 27 percent support Biden for president as their first choice.

  • 25 percent said they back Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as their first choice.

  • 9 percent said their first choice would be Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

  • 64 percent said Biden, who served in the Senate for 36 years before he was vice president for eight, has the most experience of any of the presidential candidates for 2020.

  • 54 percent said Sen. Sanders, who finished second in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, had a good influence on the party during that campaign and is right to run again.

  • 40 percent said they are "not sure" how they would feel about having a straight white male be the Democratic presidential nominee.

A recent report indicated Biden, 76, is likely to join the race for the White House in April.
