A new Suffolk University poll of New Hampshire voters shows Bernie Sanders in the lead in the Granite State.

Sanders was the first choice of 16.4 percent of respondents, giving the Vermont Senator a narrow lead 1.6 percent.

Former vice president Joe Biden finished in second place with 14.8 percent, while former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg netted 12.2 percent support.

All other candidates polled in the single digits, including Elizabeth Warren and at 9.8 percent.

23.8 percent of respondents said they were still to make up their mind about who they would support, while 47.5 percent who prefered a particular candidate said they could change their mind before the primary.

Climate change was the leading issue among respondents, with 20 percent saying it is the most important issue facing the country. 18.8 percent ranked healthcare as their top priority.

When asked whether they believed Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren to be the more progressive candidate, 53.4 percent said Sanders was, while just 18.8 percent sided with Warren.
