Beto O’Rourke topped a list of likely Democratic presidential candidates in a stunning new poll released Tuesday; beating Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden by a slim margin.

The poll, published by NBC News, show Beto leading the pack with 15.6%, Biden at 14.9%, and Bernie Sanders at 13.1%.

29 percent of those asked said they were undecided at the time of the survey.

“It’s another sign of O’Rourke’s surprising popularity among national Democrats and a potentially troubling indication for Sanders, whom MoveOn endorsed in the 2016 Democratic primary. That year, 78 percent of MoveOn members voted to back Sanders over Hillary Clinton,” writes NBC News.

The three likely candidates were followed by Sen. Kamala Harris, Warren, Sherrod Brown, Klobuchar, and Cory Booker.
