Recent polling from New Hampshire could spell big trouble for former Vice President Joe Biden, with new data showing Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders taking the lead in the pivotal primary state.
“Gravis Marketing has released its first 2020 New Hampshire Democratic Primary poll and finds Sen. Bernie Sanders sitting atop the Democratic Primary field with 21% of the vote. Former Vice President Joe Biden took second place with 15% of New Hampshire Democratic primary goers supporting him. Behind Sanders and Biden, Sen. Warren is at 12% respectfully followed by Mayor Buttigieg with 8%, Sen. Kamala Harris at 7%, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard at 5%, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer each with 4%, and Rep. Julian Castro and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke at 2%,” reports the Polling Firm.
“It is important to note that Sen. Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary in 2016,” Doug Kaplan, President of Gravis Marketing stated. “However, it is unlikely that Sen. Sanders will have a repeat of his 2016 performance in the state due to the number of candidates in the race this time.”
Other polls show Sen. Sanders and Elizabeth closing the gap with Biden in Iowa, California, and Nevada.
President Trump called-out Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden from the White House lawn Friday afternoon; saying the former Vice President was “not playing with a full deck.”
“Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “He made that comment and I said ‘whoa.'”
“This is not somebody you can have as your president, but if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled,” he said.
“Trump has delighted in making fun of Biden for what he sees as Biden’s declining mental capacity. Earlier this week, responding to Biden comparing his rhetoric to that of former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, Trump said that Biden has ‘truly lost his fastball, that I can tell you,’” reports Fox News.

“They call anyone a racist that when they run out of cards…they’ve got candidates,” he said. “Joe Biden can’t answer a simple question, something’s going wrong with him.”
“A lot of people think he’s the one who wanted Bob Mueller to testify,” Trump said. “Because it made Joe look intelligent.”
