According to the most recent Fox News poll of Nevada voters, Biden is in the lead with 23 percent, followed by Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with 17 percent. Billionaire Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren are tied for third with 12 percent each.
Sanders won the New Hampshire primary – a contest for the state’s 24 delegates. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Buttigieg received the second-highest share of votes.

The Nevada caucus will be held Feb. 22.
