Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “No Clear Leader in Latest New Hampshire Poll... Except Surging Bernie Sanders”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Independent Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has nearly doubled his support in the latest poll of neighboring New Hampshire, climbing from 15 percent in December to 29 percent. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg dropped to second place, with former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren essentially tied for third.

In the latest WBUR poll, Sanders leads the Democratic field at 29 percent, and as BUR notes, he is “well ahead of Buttigieg, who led in the last WBUR poll in December but is now in second place with 17%. Biden (14%) and Warren (13%) are virtually tied in third place.

None of the other frontrunners experienced a decline in support outside the poll’s margin of error, with Biden dropping the most at four percent, from 18 percent in December to 14 percent in January. But undecideds and non-voters declined by about ten points, which could account for much of the Sanders surge.

When compared to other New Hampshire polls this month, the BUR survey is something of an outlier, as Sanders’ average lead in the state sits at about four points, and a poll taken two days earlier shows Sanders in a statistical tie with Biden.

But it also follows another “outlier,” a CNN poll that showed Sanders taking a national lead for the first time.
