Check back for updates from the New Hampshire campaign trail today:
Sen. Amy Klobuchar continues to enjoy a post-debate bounce in New Hampshire and has sailed into third place, according to two polls released a day ahead of Tuesday’s primary.
A Boston Globe/WBZ-TV/Suffolk University poll found Klobuchar was the choice of 14% of likely primary voters behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (27%) and former mayor Pete Buttigieg (19%). Sanders’ eight-point lead over Buttigieg reflected a shift from Friday, when the poll found the former mayor slightly ahead of the senator from Vermont.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren were tied for fourth in the poll at 12% each.
The final tracking poll from 7News/Emerson College before the primary found Sanders first among likely primary voters at 30%, followed by Buttigieg (23%), Klobuchar (14%), Warren (11%) and Biden (10%).

Dems making final appeal to voters before Tuesday
After a weekend of barnstorming the Granite State, Democrats running for president are making the final push in New Hampshire as Tuesday’s primary approaches.
Riding momentum out of the Iowa caucuses, former mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders both have gotten good news in recent polls.
A recent CNN/University of New Hampshire poll out Sunday showed Sanders leading with 28% of likely primary voters, a 7-point lead over Buttigieg, his closest rival. Buttigieg had 21% support and former Vice President Joe Biden 12%. No other candidate hit double digits.
‘Stakes are incredibly high’:New Hampshire voters feel the pressure as primary looms
But another poll released Sunday, the CBS News/YouGov poll, found the race even tighter, with Sanders the choice of 29% of likely voters in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary and Buttigieg favored by 25%. That poll found Sen. Elizabeth Warren (19%) in third ahead of Biden (12%) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (10%).
The polling came just before updated results from the Iowa caucuses were published by the Iowa Democratic Party. The results showed Buttigieg had picked up another national delegate, but no winner has been declared by the Associated Press. New Hampshire’s first voters head to the polls at midnight Monday in the township of Dixville Notch. The Republican primary is also Tuesday; President Donald Trump is expected to win over challenger Bill Weld.
