New Hampshire is expected to decide the first primary winner of the 2020 election Tuesday night, just over a week since the Iowa caucuses left Americans confused about the process and without a declared winner.
After winning the New Hampshire primary in 2016 and performing well last week in Iowa, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is a clear front-runner in the Granite State and continues to dominate in the state polls.
Sanders is closely trailed by former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who experienced a post-Iowa surge in the New Hampshire polls after coming in first in the Iowa caucuses last week by just 0.1%.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar are also vying for a good showing — but their poll numbers show them around 10 points lower on average than Sanders and Buttigieg.
That said, similar to Iowa, New Hampshire voters could always throw a curveball — as a significant amount may still be undecided.
A Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll from Jan. 21 found that almost 50% of likely New Hampshire Democratic voters say they could change their minds or stay undecided.
