Exit poll: New Hampshire Democratic primary voters prioritize electability over issues

Most New Hampshire voters participating in the first-in-the-nation Democratic primary Tuesday are “angry” with the Trump administration, support a Medicare-for-All style health care plan, and think the nominee’s most important quality is the ability to beat President Donald Trump in November, according to an exit poll conducted for CNN and other television networks.

Surveys of voters taken before polls closed in the Granite State provide an early indication of what’s motivating people as they fill out their ballots.

The exit poll, conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, are based on interviews conducted throughout the day with 1,947 randomly selected Democratic primary voters at 45 wards in New Hampshire. Results for the full sample have a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Among their findings:

  • Nearly half who say they decided on their candidate did so only in the past few days, a sign of how in flux the Democratic field is.
  • About half said Friday’s debate in Manchester was an important factor in deciding their vote for president.
  • By a roughly 2-1 margin, voters said they are looking for a candidate who can beat President Trump over one who agrees with them on the issues, echoing similar trends found in previous voter surveys.
  • Eight in 10 say they’re “angry” about the Trump administration.
  • About four in 10 cited health care as the most important issue, and six in 10 said they could support a single-government plan, such as Medicare for All, a program outed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Climate change was the next most often cited issue with about 3 in 10 naming it their top concern.
