On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, three national polls were released, again with mixed results. Monmouth University (2/6-9; 357 US registered and self-identified Democratic voters) finds former Vice President Joe Biden dropping substantially, trailing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), 26-16%. This sample size is so low, however, that these results should largely be discarded.
The HarrisX survey (2/7-10; 913 US likely Democratic voters) still finds Mr. Biden in first with 23% over Sen. Sanders’ 20%. The order, after Biden’s poor New Hampshire performance, will likely quickly change, however. Here, Mr. Bloomberg soars to third with 16 percent. Both former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) drop to 9% preference.
The large sample online Morning Consult regular survey (2/4-9; 15,346 US Democratic preference voter responses) finds Sen. Sanders topping Biden and Bloomberg, 25-22-17%, with both Warren and Buttigieg at 11% apiece. All of these numbers could quickly change post New Hampshire and as the candidates head toward Nevada (Feb 22), South Carolina (Feb 29), and Super Tuesday (Mar 3).
