It’s hard to believe it’s here already, but the New Hampshire primary is upon us. Who’s ahead in the Democratic polling for New Hampshire going into today’s contest? All eyes are on the primary in the wake of the drama out of the Iowa caucuses, where results were delayed and then trickled in.
The New Hampshire primary comes out of the chute next, on February 11, 2020. It’s the second nominating contest of the 2020 presidential election. Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders in particular got a boost out of Iowa, despite the problems there, with former Vice President Joe Biden sagging in the results.
New Hampshire’s polling shows pretty much the same thing, with Sanders and Buttigieg at the front of the pack. Sanders has been polling particularly strong in New Hampshire, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average. The rest of the field is pretty far behind there, at least in the polls. In fact, Sanders leads by an average 7.4%. Amy Klobuchar comes third in New Hampshire polling averages, which is a stronger showing for her.
