Sen. Bernie Sanders has an early lead against New Hampshire Democratic primary candidates in the first poll since the Vermont independent announced his candidacy.

The Emerson College Polling showed Sanders with a slight advantage of 27 percent of the vote, former Vice President Joe Biden with 25 percent and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., at 12 percent.

No other candidate cleared double digits in the Democratic primary test of registered voters taken Feb. 21-22.

The survey also found President Donald Trump trails against all the potential Democratic nominees — and fares worst against Biden and Sanders, who both lead Trump 55 percent to 45 percent. Up against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Trump trails 52 percent to 48 percent, but takes a 2-point lead, 45 percent to 43 percent, when Howard Schultz is added to the ballot.

Here’s other findings:

  • 44 percent of voters 18-34 back Sanders, followed by Biden at 11 percent, Warren at 9 percent, and both Harris and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 8 percent apiece.
  • 30 percent of voters 35-54 prefer Biden, followed by Sanders, at 26 percent, Harris at 14 percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., at 10 percent and Warren at 7 percent.
  • 30 percent of voters between 55-74 also prefer Biden, followed by Sanders, with 18 percent and Harris at 13 percent. Warren and Klobuchar tied with 8 percent apiece.
  • 39 percent of voters 75 and older pick Biden, followed by Warren, with 18 percent, Klobuchar with 11 percent, Sanders with 10 percent and Harris with 8 percent.

The poll’s margin of error for that race was plus or minus 4.8 percent.
