According to a recent poll, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the front-runner among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, with more than 25% of those polled endorsing the progressive candidate in the increasingly crowded field of presidential contenders.
According to the University of New Hampshire’s Granite State Poll, when given a list of announced candidates and others who may enter the race, 26 percent of Democratic primary voters prefer Sanders, an independent.
22 percent of Democratic voters prefer Joe Biden, the former vice president, to Sanders. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kamala Harris of California came in second and third, with 10% and 7% of the vote, respectively. One-fourth of those polled, or 14%, are still unsure.
In the presidential election cycle, New Hampshire hosts the first primary and is frequently seen, along with Iowa, which hosts the first caucuses, as a predictor of who will ultimately become a party’s nominee.
28 percent of respondents who were asked an open-ended question said they would vote for Sanders. When asked who they would vote for, 42% of voters were unsure or unable to name a candidate.
Republican primary voters were asked who they preferred between President Donald Trump and two potential primary rivals, former Ohio governor John Kasich and former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, and 68 percent chose Trump. Only 17% of respondents said they would vote for Kasich, while 3% would favor Weld.
57 percent of Republican survey respondents are still considering their options for the November election. Only 34% of respondents claim to have made up their minds, and 10% indicate that they are leaning toward a particular candidate.
From February 18 to February 26, the survey interviewed 604 adults in New Hampshire in English through landlines and mobile phones. Its sampling error margin is plus or minus four percentage points. Additionally, the sampled population includes 218 likely Republican primary voters and 240 likely Democratic primary voters, with respective margins of error of plus or minus 6.6 percentage points and 6.3 percentage points.
