Buttigieg also saw a considerable surge since February in name recognition, which increased 33.2 points, and favorability, which increased 30.6 points, according to the poll. His unfavorability rating increased only 2.9 points in the same period.

Comparatively, Biden saw his favorability fall 9.7 points and his unfavorability increase 5.5 points in the poll in the same period, during which several women came forward to accuse him of touching them inappropriately, although polling so far indicates the allegations have not dislodged him from his position as front-runner.

Pollsters surveyed 698 registered Granite State voters between April 3 and April 8. The poll has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
