Joe Biden is still the leader in the race for the nomination of the Democratic Party for the presidency, but Elizabeth Warren is gaining ground.
A new poll shows Warren only six percentage points behind the former vice president.
Biden leads the busy Democratic field with 31 percent, while Warren's support among party voters is 25 percent, according to NBC News.
The Massachusetts senator has passed Bernie Sanders, who has remained largely silent in recent polls.
The Vermont senator gets 14 percent of the vote, according to the NBC News / Wall Street Journal's national poll.

The survey, which was held between Friday and Monday, questioned 506 Democratic primary voters.
Warren has gained strength since last week's debate in Houston.
Biden has good reason to worry about Warren, who has an advantage in the voter's enthusiasm.
Of those surveyed, 35 percent of voters said they were "enthusiastic" about Warren – a 9 point increase since June.
Another 35 percent said they & # 39; comfortable & # 39; were with Warren as the nominee. Only six percent said they & # 39; very uncomfortable & # 39; goods.
Biden, on the other hand, has only 23 percent of voters who are enthusiastic about his candidacy, while 41 percent feel at ease.
Biden saw his support increase by five percentage points compared to July, while Warren's position improved by six percentage points.
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is in fourth place with 7 percent.
Senator Bernie Sanders (seen Tuesday in Philadelphia) continues to languish in third place, the research said
Senator Kamala Harris from California seems to have taken a steep dive.
In July she won 13 percent of the votes, making her comfortably in the top four.
But the latest poll leaves Harris behind with only 5 percent.
Andrew Yang, senator Amy Klobuchar, senator Cory Booker, former home representative Beto R & Rourke and home representative Tulsi Gabbard round off the top 10.
While the top three seems to be comfortably in front, the bottom seven could find comfort in the fact that only 9 percent of all Democratic respondents in the poll say they have made a decision.

Experts say the polls can change between now and the early primaries and caucuses, which are gone for a few months.
The poll shows that the basis of Biden largely consists of centrist, moderate democrats.
Warren now has the support of the more liberal wing of the party.
The poll also showed that a majority of Democratic primary voters – 56 percent – want a candidate who will present bold ideas about healthcare, climate change and the economy, even if the plans are expensive for the taxpayer.
Most of these Democrats prefer Warren – 32 percent – while Biden gets 21 percent.
Sanders gets 19 percent of these voters, according to the poll.
On the other hand, 40 percent of democratic voters prefer small-scale proposals that may be easier to pass in Congress.
Of these voters, Biden receives the most support – 43 percent – while Warren comes in a distant second with 17 percent.
Harris receives 9 percent, while Buttigieg receives 8 percent.
