The poll of 657 New Hampshire Democratic primary voters comes a week after a Des Moines Register–CNN poll of likely Iowa caucusgoers put Sanders in the lead in the Hawkeye State.
The polling suggests Sanders has a chance to win both of the Democratic Party’s first two contests in the presidential nominating fight.
To be sure, Sanders will enter the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 11 with something of an advantage. He represents neighboring Vermont in the Senate, and he won the New Hampshire primary in 2016 as he fought former Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWhite House accuses Biden of pushing ‘conspiracy theories’ with Trump election claim Biden courts younger voters — who have been a weakness Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton qualifies to run for county commissioner in Florida MORE for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Sanders’s lead in New Hampshire is driven largely by voters under the age of 50, 28 percent of whom say they support the Vermont senator. He also performs well among the most progressive voters, scoring 34 percent among those who describe themselves as “very liberal,” according to the Emerson poll.
Still, there are signs that the race in New Hampshire remains fluid. Fifty-three percent of respondents said that they could still change their mind ahead of primary day, while 47 percent said they are loyal to their candidate of choice.
The Emerson College poll surveyed 657 New Hampshire Democratic voters from Jan. 13 to 16. It has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
