A new poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire finds Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., polling at number one among New Hampshire voters in the 2020 Democratic primary field.
The 2020 candidates hold the following polling numbers among New Hampshire voters:
- Bernie Sanders – 21%
- Elizabeth Warren – 18%
- Joe Biden – 15%
- Pete Buttigieg – 10%
- Andrew Yang – 5%
- Amy Klobuchar – 5%
- Tulsi Gabbard – 5%
- Tom Steyer – 3%
- Kamala Harris – 3%
- Cory Booker – 2%
“Support for Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg is unchanged since July, while support for Biden has declined by nine percentage points and is at its lowest point in this primary cycle,” the poll concludes.
The poll also concluded Democratic voters find Sanders the most progressive and most likable candidate, but agree Biden has the best chance to win against Trump in the general election.
This poll was released just four days after Joe Biden told CBS News, “I know I’m the frontrunner.”
“Let’s talk about the state of the race, because, it has tightened. Do you still consider yourself the frontrunner?” CBS Political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns asked Biden during a “60 Minutes” interview.
“I know I’m the frontrunner. Find me a national poll, with a notable couple exceptions, the last four that have come out, but look this is a marathon,” Biden said.
This New Hampshire poll is yet another contradiction to Biden’s belief that he is still in the lead.
