Democrats make final pitch to Granite State voters

Buttigieg surges ahead of Sanders, poll finds


Check back for updates from the New Hampshire campaign trail today:

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.

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%).
