The survey marks a shift in voters' support in the Granite State. The same poll in October showed Warren leading the pack at 25 percent, while Biden followed close behind at 24 percent and Sanders trailed at 22 percent.

The poll is welcome news for the Biden campaign after Friday's Des Moines Register/CNN poll showed Biden at 15 percent in Iowa, trailing Buttigieg at 16 percent. Sanders and Warren sat in the poll's top two slots at 20 percent and 17 percent, respectively.

The Iowa caucuses are set to be held on Feb. 3, while the New Hampshire primary will be held on Feb. 11. 

However, Biden maintains his lead nationally, according to a recent poll.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released on Monday showed Biden leading at 25 percent, followed by Sanders at 19 percent and Warren at 16 percent. 

The Boston Herald poll was conducted Jan. 8 to Jan. 12 among 434 likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. The sampling margin of error is plus or minus 4.7 percentage points. The poll was paid for by Franklin Pierce University in collaboration with the Boston Herald and NBC10 Boston.
