Pete Buttigieg increases lead over Biden in New Hampshire poll

Joe Biden finds himself trailing Pete Buttigieg in the latest New Hampshire poll where he is tied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren among Democrats – in a state that gave his successful 2020 campaign a rocky start.

Biden's overall popularity is also narrowly under water among Democrats in the state, where some party leaders have warned he could be vulnerable to an internecine challenge due to his low popularity.

Buttigieg led likely Democrats with 23 per cent in the new University of New Hampshire Granite State Poll.

Biden, who came in fifth in New Hampshire in 2020, trails with 18 per cent, tied with the liberal Warren, who has been a supporter of his agenda in the Senate.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who visited the White House this week, is at 15 per cent, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez at 6 per cent and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar at 5 per cent.

That shows an uptick for Buttigieg, the telegenic Transportation Secretary who has moved his official residence to Michigan. Back in July, they were virtually tied, with Buttigieg at 17 and Biden at 16 per cent.

How humiliating for Amy Klobuchar.

Seriously, R1--tugging up the rear behind AOC?

Pete will be president someday. Count on it.

Pete has done a shitty job as Secretary of Transportation.

Liberal here. I will never vote for Pete. I will write in Kitara Revanches name before I vote for Pete. THIS is exactly why South Carolina needs to vote before WHITE New Hampshire.

A governor of a small city, okay. President? He has a long way to go to convince me of that. Just being gay is NOT a selling point.

Shit--I meant MAYOR.

I agree that Pete needs to step up if he has Presidential ambitions. That said, he has many qualities that lead me to believe he could be a good one someday.

It's like McGovern all over again.

Politico mops up Buttigieg and Kamala while calling for newer candidates-------->>"As Democrats bemoan their political bench there’s a frequent glass-is-half-empty refrain about the most-often mentioned prospects waiting behind the 80-year-old in the White House: Kamala Harris can’t win a general election, Pete Buttigieg can’t win a primary"
