The poll states, “Bernie Sanders continues to lead the Democratic field in New Hampshire and a plurality of likely Democratic voters say he is the most progressive candidate and has the best chance to win the general election.”
Notably, Sanders has surpassed Biden to take a commanding lead, a swing of 15 percentage points in just two months.
Perhaps even more telling, when New Hampshire voters were asked the open-ended question who they preferred for President, they overwhelming named Bernie Sanders.
Sanders won New Hampshire handedly in 2016, although the delegate count was skewed by super-delegates. This time, progressives aren’t taking any chances, in New Hampshire or anywhere else.
By the looks of things, voters in New Hampshire are “Feelin’ the Bern” now more than ever before!
