(WEHT)- A CBS News Poll reveals that Iowa Democrats are still deadlocked with less than a month before the February 3rd caucus.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and South Bend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg all polled at 23 percent. Meanwhile, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren came in at 16 percent while Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar received 7 percent. No other candidate received more than 3 percent.

While the race is tighter than before, support for individual candidates hasn’t wavered much from the last CBS News poll in November. None of the top five candidates saw their support change more than two percent and only Warren saw her support drop.

So far, only those five candidates have qualified for the January debate on January 14th in Des Moines, Iowa. Making this debate is crucial for some candidates as it is the last debate before the Iowa caucus.

In New Hampshire, Sanders holds a slight edge on Biden, 27 percent to 25 percent, though the difference between them is well within the margin of error. Behind them, Warren has 18 percent, Buttigieg has 13 percent, and Klobuchar has 7 percent.

Overall, the poll showed that Sanders supporters are the most enthusiastic, with 67 percent of Sanders supporters saying they’re enthusiastic about voting for him. Comparatively, only 49 percent of Biden supporters said the same thing.

Despite that, 38 percent percent of Iowa Democrats say they believe Biden is the most likely to defeat President Trump in November. Only 21 percent believed the same about Buttigieg.
