Former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg are in a statistical dead heat in New Hampshire, a new poll shows.
18 percent of likely Democratic voters said they would choose Buttigieg if the state primary were held that day. 17 percent chose Biden.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) received 15 percent support, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received 12 percent. No other candidates scored in double digits.
Sixty percent of respondents had a favorable view of Sanders, however, leaping ahead of Buttigieg’s 58 percent and Biden’s 53 percent. Fifty-two percent had a favorable rating of Warren.
Worthy of note: Biden was viewed unfavorably by 33 percent of likely voters while Buttigieg was only viewed unfavorably by 16 percent.
Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg had the highest unfavorable rating with 46 percent of likely voters. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was viewed unfavorably by 36 percent.
Conducted between December 3 and 8 by MassInc Polling Group for WBUR, the poll has a margin of error of 4.7 percentage points.
