DURHAM, N.H. – He trounced any candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 granite state democratic primary, and a new poll indicates Sen. Bernie Sanders has the early advantage of just under a year to go to the 2020 competition in the state holding the first presidential candidate.
26 percent of likely democratic primary voters questioned a New Hampshire university study said they would support Vermont's independent senator in next year's competition.
Granit State Poll was carried out on February 18-26, mostly after the February 19 announcement by Sanders that he launched another presidential bid.
Twenty-two percent of those surveyed said they would come back former vice president Joe Bidenwho looks seriously at a white house race. The public opinion poll conducted this early in an election cycle is often heavily influenced by name review.
One in ten said they would return to Sen. Kamala Harris in California, with seven percent support Sen. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts. Former Rep. Beto O & R39; Rourke from Texas – a likely White House hopefully – stood at five percent, with beds Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota at four percent and Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey at that percentage. Everyone else in the vast area of 2020 Democratic contenders and potential candidates registered with one percent or less. Fourteen percent of those asked were uncertain.
UNH census Andrew Smith pointed out that the 18-34 years were more likely to support Sanders, where 65 and older were more likely to return to Biden. And he pointed out that Harris has jumped seven percentage points since an August survey, where Warren lost ten points.
As a list of candidates was not presented and asked an open question about who they would return in next February's primary, Sanders rose. He stood at 28 percent, with Biden at eight percent.
Harris stood at six percent, with Klobuchar three percent and Warren and Booker one point back.
"More than four out of ten democratic primary voters remain unresolved or cannot give a name when asked about an open-ended question about who to vote for by 2020," Smith added.
Beating Republican President Trump remains a major concern for democratic primary voters in New Hampshire and across the nation, and the study showed that granite state democrats see Biden most elective in election elections. Almost a third of those asked said Biden had the best chance of winning in November 2020, with Sanders ten points remaining at 22 percent. Everyone else was five percent or less.
The survey also asked likely New Hampshire democratic primary voters which candidate they would not vote for under any circumstances, with Warren topping this 13 percent list, followed by Sanders at eight percent and former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg at six percent. The billionaire media mogul is mulling a white house bid.
Trump trounced a large field in New Hampshire's 2016 GOP President's primary, launching him on his way to the Republican nomination and ultimately the White House. The study showed that more than 80 percent of the granite state Republicans approve the work the president controls the country.
But only 56 percent of likely GOP primary voters said they are planning to vote for Trump in the primary primary president of New Hampshire's primary president by 2020. Fifteen percent said they would return another candidate, with nearly three out of ten ubeslutte.
In a hypothetical primary matchup, the vote indicates that Trump's support is increasing. Sixty-six percent said they would return Trump, with 17 percent supporting former Ohio Gov. John Kasich and three percent vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. Kasich, who came second to Trump in the 2016 New Hampshire Republican primary, is a vocal critic of the president who mulling a primary challenge. Weld, another drum critic, last month formed a presidential research committee, as he seriously weighs a long-standing primary challenge.
Six hundred and four people were questioned by live operators in the study of the University of New Hampshire Granite State. The survey sample error for probable democratic primary votes is plus or minus 6.3 percentage points and 6.6 percentage points for likely GOP primary voters.
