Plurality of New Hampshire Democratic Primary Voters Still Undecided — But Warren In Danger Zone

January 22, 2020

A lot of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters still do not know who they are going to cast their ballot for in three weeks.

According to a recent Boston Globe-Suffolk University poll, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders holds a slight lead over former Vice President Joe Biden. The poll shows Sanders with 16.4 percent support among likely Democratic primary voters and Biden shortly behind with 14.8 percent. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers 12.2 percent support in the poll, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren sits in fourth place with 9.8 percent support.

However, the largest bloc of voters is the undecided; the poll said 23.6 percent of voters still have not made up their minds as to whom they will support. Additionally, a large number of voters stated they would be willing to change their minds in the next few weeks. While 50.67 percent said they had their minds made up, nearly half did not.

For both Warren and Sanders, the New Hampshire primary is a must-win. No candidate from a bordering state has ever gone on to win the nomination without winning the Granite State.
