Joe Biden still leads the Iowa State Fair’s WHO-HD’s “Cast Your Kernel” poll. The unscientific survey of fair attendees allows Republicans and Democrats to cast a kernel toward their favored candidate.

According to WHO-TV, 49% of Democrats have voted in the poll compared to 51% percent of Republicans for their respective party candidates.

With 25%, the former vice president leads his closest competitor, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, by 9 points, as of 2 p.m. local time. Over 19,450 kernels had been dropped into candidate jars. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is tied with Warren at 16%. Meanwhile, California Sen. Kamala Harris has 11%.
