Support for Joe Biden has crumbled to the point that there may be a new frontrunner, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released on Wednesday.

The poll shows Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) eclipsing Biden with 27 percent support to only 25 percent for the former vice president.

Biden has dominated the competition for the Democratic primary thus far, but he has had to fend off questions about his age and numerous gaffes on the campaign trail.

Warren's lead falls within the error margin of the poll.

In a previous Quinnipiac poll, Biden garnered 32 percent while Warren only received 19 percent of support.

Biden has also been heavily criticized by the more progressive wing of the Democratic party who say he is not sufficiently partisan enough to take down President Donald Trump in 2020.

Socialist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) received 16 percent in the poll for third place, while South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in fourth place with 7 percent, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) with 3 percent.

"We now have a race with two candidates at the top of the field, and they're leaving the rest of the pack behind," said Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy.
