Sleepy Joe’s Top Spot Threatened: Sanders Overtakes Biden in Latest New Hampshire Poll

  • The latest Gravis Marketing poll released last week shows that Sen. Bernie Sanders has overtaken frontrunner Joe Biden for the top spot among Democratic primary voters.
  • The poll asked 250 primary voters, “If the New Hampshire 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary were held today, who would you vote for?”
  • The results show that “Sanders leads the pack with 21 percent support, followed by Joe Biden (D) with 15 percent support, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with 12 percent.”
  • It’s worth noting that “Warren’s failure to capture second place is significant, as she and Sanders share similar far-left ideologies and represent New England states neighboring New Hampshire.”
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in fourth place with 8 percent, which was one better than Sen. Kamala Harris’ 7 percent, which showed that the momentum she gained during the first debate has significantly dwindled.
  • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) had five percent of voters’ support, “and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Andrew Yang (D), and Tom Steyer (D) all came in with four percent support. The remaining candidates garnered two percent or less.”
  • About 11 percent of the respondents said they were “uncertain” about who they would vote for.
  • Gravis Marketing President Doug Kaplan said: “It is important to note that Sen. Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary in 2016.”
  • Kaplan added: “However, it is unlikely that Sen. Sanders will have a repeat of his 2016 performance in the state due to the number of candidates in the race this time.”
  • Additionally, “the current Real Clear Politics average shows Sanders gaining on Biden, who leads by less than three percent.”
