Sanders Jumps Ahead to Surprising Lead in the Polls

According to a new poll, self-described “democratic socialist” Bernie Sanders is now leading the pack of Democratic 2020 hopefuls in a key primary state.

News outlets are reporting that a new poll of Democratic voters in New Hampshire shows Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the field in this critical first-in-the-nation primary state.

Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont who’s making his second bid for the presidency, has the support of 29 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the Granite State, according to a Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald Poll released Wednesday 9/11.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been the frontrunner in most national and early-state polls until now, stands at 21 percent in this poll. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of neighboring Massachusetts, who, like Sanders, is a progressive standard-bearer in the field of White House hopefuls, registered at 17 percent in the poll.

This as 10 of the Democratic candidates, including Sanders, Biden and Warren, are poised to take the debate stage Thursday night – setting up the first major ideological battle in the nominating race between the more moderate and progressive wings of the party.

Biden campaign staffers are not making much of the poll, attributing Sanders and Warren’s uptick to their connections to the neighboring New England states of Vermont and Massachusetts.

The New Hampshire poll puts Sen. Kamala Harris of California at 6 percent support, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang both at 5 percent, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii at 3 percent, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas at 2 percent. Every other candidate mentioned in the survey registered at 1 percent or less.

The poll sampled 425 likely Democratic primary voters in the Granite State. The survey’s sampling error is plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.

    Bernie against Trump would be pretty entertaining, but it would be comically entertaining to have a James Comey / Trump contest!!!

    Are these the same polls that had Hillary winning by a landslid. I do but believe in any of these so called polls, after hearing the Dr. Robert Epstein on Fox Sunday night. Look him up and learn how we are being secretly influenced by Google and other big Tec company by how the feed us the news and political polls.

      The main stream media and these polls are propaganda machines run by the democrats and their minions. They are skewed and provide false data to fit their narrative. Look at the results of what President Trump as done, is doing, and will accomplish if we give him the congressional support he needs to “right the ship of state”.

      Problem is the socialist, democrats, have brain-washed all the illiterate morons living in the large population centers into believing they will get everything FREE! Los Angeles (hell just about all of CA), Detroit, Chicago, New York, Seattle, etc. All economically failing and run by DEMOCRATS. Proves the point that liberal, so called progressives, can’t manage anything. Most of these clowns have never run a successful private business and can only offer to tax and spend other peoples money. Trump has brought economic prosperity to many of the democratic neglected and they don’t even know it and still keep electing the democratic clowns!

    It’s possible but I don’t believe any of the polls anymore. They are all rigged. And, if that is true, those people are smoking a lot of TSH.

    It does not matter which Lie-beral DEMONocrat will be up against President Trump. He will mop the floor with whoever it is. What an enormous waste of money, time and energy on the part of the DEMONocrats. They don’t have a platform! President Trump is a man of action and all the DEMONocrats have is bullshit. They only have 2 skills- SLINGING BULLSHIT AND RAISING TAXES. Do not forget that they are the party of fake, hate, negate and dominate!

    Gotta say I’m not surprised. However I am surprised that many voters would support Bernie after the way he sold them out last time. And he was well paid to do it. Today he lives like royalty in his two million dollar home the democrats bought for him.
