Sen. Elizabeth Warren is out ahead of a group of potential Democratic presidential candidates in a Suffolk University poll of likely New Hampshire primary voters.
On the Republican side, President Donald Trump easily trounced any potential 2020 challengers in the state.
Support for the possible Democratic candidate shape up in New Hampshire like this, according to the poll:
- 26 percent chose Warren, who represents Massachusetts.
- 20 percent backed former Vice President Joe Biden.
- 13 percent favored Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
- 8 percent supported Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.
- 4 percent chose Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
- 4 percent backed former Gov. Deval Patrick, D-Mass.
- 2 percent favored former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, D-Va.
- 2 percent supported Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.
- 18 percent were undecided.
"Elizabeth Warren overtakes the entire field in her neighboring state, if she decides to run," said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston. "The biggest losers are Sanders, Patrick, and Harris, whose respective overlaps of political philosophy, geography, and gender rotate to Warren."
Possible Republican matchups with Trump came out like this in the New Hampshire poll:
- 63 percent to 28 percent favored the president over Mitt Romney.
- 66 percent to 23 percent preferred Trump over Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
- 68 percent to 12 percent favored the president over Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio.
- 72 percent to 15 percent preferred Trump over Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
The poll, conducted April 26-30, surveyed 295 Democratic voters in New Hampshire voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 5.7 percentage points.
The poll also surveyed 315 Republican voters in the state. The margin of error for that section of the survey is plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
