Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has surged to the lead in a closely-watched poll of Iowa caucusgoers, according to results released Friday.

Twenty percent of respondents in the poll, conducted by the Des Moines Register and CNN from Jan. 2-8, said they are likely to support Sanders during Iowa’s statewide caucus, which will be held on Feb. 3. That’s a five point increase for Sanders since the same poll was conducted in November.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (17%), former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (16%) and former Vice President Joe Biden (15%) rounded out the top four in the latest survey.
