Buttigieg has the sting.
A surging Pete Buttigieg has nudged ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in a day by day monitoring poll of New Hampshire Democrats — with simply three days to go earlier than its first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
The previous mayor of South Bend, Ind., is at 25% in the Boston Globe/WBZ/Suffolk College monitoring poll launched Friday night time, simply after the Democrats wrapped up their debate in Manchester, N.H.
That was one share level ahead of the 24% received by Sanders in the identical survey.
Buttigieg — at 38, the youngest candidate in the race — has gained 11 factors in the poll since his sturdy efficiency in Monday’s Iowa caucuses, the place he claimed victory regardless of the vote-count chaos that left the outcomes in doubt for days.
A lot of his achieve got here on the expense of Vice President Joe Biden, the nationwide front-runner who flopped in the caucuses with a fourth-place end.
Biden, at 11% in the Suffolk College poll, might see the identical consequence in New Hampshire, the place Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) is notching 14% in the survey.
Each Sanders and Buttigieg took hearth from their rivals in Friday night time’s debate. Mike Bloomberg was not in the poll as a result of he isn’t on the primary poll.
