Fifty-seven percent of New Hampshire voters are still trying to decide who they will support. Only 23 percent have definitely decided, and 21 percent are leaning toward one candidate.

The CNN-University of New Hampshire poll is a qualifying survey for the December debate. Candidates must reach 4 percent support in four national or early-state polls or 6 percent support in two early-state polls conducted between Oct. 16 and Dec. 12.

The survey of 574 likely 2020 Democratic primary voters was conducted between Oct. 21 and Oct. 27 and has a 4.1 percentage point margin of error.
