Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the clear front-runner in New Hampshire’s primary, according to a new Emerson College poll released Friday that shows him widening his lead over former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D).
Sanders registered 23 percent support among Democratic primary voters in the state, a slight drop from the 26 percent he carried in a similar poll conducted in November. But Buttigieg also fell from 22 percent support in November to 18 percent, giving Sanders a bigger lead.
Rounding out the top four in New Hampshire are former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who tied for third place at 14 percent support each.
