Democrats make final pitch to New Hampshire voters ahead of Tuesdays primary

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%). 

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 poll at midnight in the township of Dixville Notch. The Republican primary is also Tuesday, where President Donald Trump is expected to win over challenger Bill Weld.
