CBS surveyed 530 registered Democrats in New Hampshire between July 9 and 18. The margin of error for the sample is plus or minus 5 points.

The results of Sunday's poll widely line up with another one from New Hampshire from CNN, which last week found Biden leading, Sanders and Warren in tight competition for second and Harris and Buttigieg as the only other candidates with statistically meaningful support.

Both polls are significantly different from a Saint Anselm College survey which found Sanders at only 10 percent support and Harris much closer to Warren in third.
