Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has opened a small lead in New Hampshire, with former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend (IN) Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren chasing. While Biden trails Sanders, likely Democratic primary voters continue to believe he has the best chance to defeat Donald Trump in November. Democratic primary voters trust Sanders most with handling the climate crisis and healthcare, their two most important issues. Most Democratic primary voters would be satisfied or enthusiastic if any of these four candidates became the Democratic nominee. President Trump faces only token opposition in the Republican primary.
