The poll is good news for Biden, as it is one of his strongest showings in a national survey- he comes in at a strong third place with 22 percent.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Jill Biden, the wife of the Vice President supports her husband in running for president.

The first Democratic debate is October 13.
