WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden has a solid lead among 2020 New Hampshire Democratic primary voters, according to a poll released Thursday.
The St. Anselm College poll found that 23% of the respondents said they support Biden, who has not yet entered the race for president.
Meanwhile, 16% said they support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Eleven percent said they support South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Nine percent said they support Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).
Seven percent said they support Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.).
Six percent said they support former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas).
Four percent said they support Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.).
Two percent said they support Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.).
The other candidates polled at 1% or below.
The survey included 698 registered voters and was carried out Apr. 3-8. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
New Hampshire, a swing state, has an open primary system that allows unaffiliated voters to choose which party’s contest they wish to participate in.
Recent polls have shown Sanders leading the ever-growing Democratic field. Biden leads when prospective candidates are considered.
