Bernie Nabs Double-Digit Lead in NH as Women Ditch Clinton for Surging Sanders

October 6, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

Is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s support among women crumbling?

Less than one month out from the first primary in the United States, Senator Bernie Sanders now has a 14-point edge over Clinton in New Hampshire, thanks in part to a new-found lead among the state’s women voters.

Released Tuesday by Monmouth University, the poll found that Sanders has 53 percent support in the state, compared to 39 percent backing Clinton.

Notably, the survey concludes that Sanders now has an edge over Clinton with women voters, at 50 percent to 44 percent respectively. This lead reverses Sanders’ 37 percent to 56 percent deficit among women in an identical Monmouth poll taken just two months ago.

Sanders has maintained backing from independents, new voters, and younger voters—and is now also leading among older voters in the state. Conducted from January 7 to 10 among 413 people likely to vote in New Hampshire’s February 9th Democratic primary, the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.8 percent.

“New Hampshire Democratic preferences are getting baked in, with Sanders gaining the upper hand. The final question will be who does a better job at turning out their respective voting blocs,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
