Joe Biden is 1 in 4 Democrats' top pick for president

Vice President Joe Biden has yet to announce whether he'll seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, but Bloomberg Politics poll results released this morning find him netting the support of one in four Democratic voters. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still in the lead with 33 percent support, and Sen. Bernie Sanders is just one point behind Biden at 24 percent.
