The poll, released last week, shows that the self-described socialist senator has a strong lead in the important primary state.
Democrat primary voters — 250 of them — were asked, “If the New Hampshire 2020 Democratic presidential primary were held today, who would you vote for?”
Sanders was in the top spot with 21 percent, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden with 15 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) takes third with 12 percent.
The fact that Warren couldn’t place second in this poll is significant when one considers that she and Bernie Sanders are battling for the same far-Left political space — and both represent New England states in vicinity of New Hampshire.
After Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, got eight percent, only one point above Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — who received seven percent.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) grabbed five percent, followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, and billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — who all received four percent support.
The remaining candidates garnered two percent or less.

“It is important to note that Sen. Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary in 2016,” said Doug Kaplan, president of Gravis Marketing.
“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.”
It should be noted that Sanders’ surge in New Hampshire does not appear to be a fluke.
The Real Clear Politics poll average shows Sanders is moving toward Biden, who now leads the field by less than three percent.
The socialist senator has been drawing huge crowds to his New Hampshire campaign events amid his calls that President Donald Trump “an overt racist, sexist, xenophobic, religious bigot.”
Which is completely ridiculous — and also probably part of why his support is increasing.
