The results come as the Democratic hopefuls make their way to the Granite State from Iowa, despite not having official results from that state's caucuses 

The Iowa Democratic Party is expected to release its results from the first-in-the-nation caucuses at some point on Tuesday after the contests were plagued with technical glitches and reporting issues. 

The candidates are set to hit the ground running in New Hampshire on Tuesday as they await the results out of Iowa. Buttigieg is slated to hold at least five events in the state, while Sanders will hold a town hall and deliver his response to Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday. 

Warren will also hold a town hall in the state and campaign alongside former 2020 Democratic contender Julián Castro. 

The Boston Globe–WBZ-TV–Suffolk University poll was conducted Feb. 3-4, among 500 likely voters. The margin of error is 4.4 percentage points.
