Joe Biden pulls ahead in New Hampshire; Elizabeth Warren drops to third: poll

Former Vice President Joe Biden has jumped to a small lead in the first-in-the nation New Hampshire primary, while Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has slumped to third place, a new Franklin Pierce University-Boston Herald-NBC10Boston poll shows.

Biden now gets 26%, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in second place with 22%, and Warren trailing in third with 18%, according to the poll of 434 likely Democratic primary voters. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg gets just 7% of the vote and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg is at 4%.

Twelve percent of the poll respondents said they were undecided heading into the last few weeks of the primary campaign.

The Democratic poll has a margin of error of 4.7 percent.

Warren appears to have suffered the most significant drop in support in the new poll.

In an October Franklin Pierce-Herald poll, she led the field with 25%, but voters now appear to be dropping off to other candidates or the undecided column.

On the Republican side, President Trump maintains a huge lead over his opponents, with 79% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Gov. William F. Weld and former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh get 4% each.

Trump’s approval rating has dropped since October, and now sits at 76%, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted Jan. 8-12.
