Poll: Buttigieg, Biden neck and neck in New Hampshire
A WBUR poll released Wednesday shows that former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg are in a dead heat in New Hampshire.
When asked who they would vote for if New Hampshire’s Democratic primary was today, 18 percent of likely Democratic voters polled said Buttigieg, while 17 percent said Biden.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) received 15 percent support, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) received 12 percent. No other candidate was in double digits, though 12 percent said either that they didn’t know or refused to answer the question.
Sanders led the way in favorability, with 60 percent of respondents rating him favorable. Buttigieg was next with 58 percent, followed by Biden at 53 percent and Warren at 52 percent.
The poll was conducted Dec. 3-8, surveyed 442 likely voters and had a margin of error of 4.7 percentage points.
