Vermont Senator and self-described Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders is now in first place according to a recent poll out of New Hampshire Monday; topping former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“A new poll in the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White House shows Sen. Bernie Sanders of neighboring Vermont leading in the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination,” reports Fox News.
The survey shows Bernie in first place with 30% of likely Democratic voters supporting his campaign; followed by Biden at 18% and Buttigieg at a surprising 15%.
“While Biden continues to garner the second most support among likely Democratic Primary voters, his share of support has fallen considerably since early 2018, while support for Sanders has remained largely steady as he has lead the field over the past year,” said UNH pollster Andrew Smith.
