Joe Biden Leading Donald Trump In New Hampshire Poll

May 1, 2020

If you trust the polls, former vice president Joe Biden is the favorite to win New Hampshire in the 2020 presidential election.

The newest Saint Anselm-New Hampshire Institute of Politics poll has Biden leading incumbent President Donald Trump with 50 percent support. Trump trails Biden with 42 percent support.  Meanwhile, 7 percent of voters said they would vote third party. The poll’s margin of error is 3.4 percent.

The poll says that Biden has an overwhelming lead with swing voters:  55 percent to 18 percent. Trump’s job approval in the state is 43 percent positive and 57 percent negative.

However, Trump has a popular supporter in the Granite State:  Republican Governor Chris Sununu. The governor has a 74 percent approval rating in the state and an 86 percent approval rating on his coronavirus handling.

While recent races have been close, the last time a Republican won New Hampshire in a presidential election was 2000.
