Sanders extends national lead after New Hampshire

Following his victory in the New Hampshire primary, Bernie Sanders has increased his lead over Joe Biden nationally to 10 points.

Overall, 29 percent of respondents to the Morning Consult poll said they supported Sanders, up four points from before the Granite State primary. 19 percent said they would vote for Joe Biden, down three points.

No other candidate saw a notable change in their support, with Michael Bloomberg in third place at 18 percent, and Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren following with 11 percent and 10 percent respectively.

Following Joe Biden’s poor performance in Iowa and New Hampshire, Democrats now say Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump in the general election.

The survey of 2,639 likely voters was conducted on February 12.
