Poll: Bernie Takes Early Lead in NH Dem Primary

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has the early lead among 2020 Democratic presidential candidates in the first New Hampshire Democratic primary poll.

According to a recently published Emerson College Polling survey, the Democratic socialist has a slight lead over former Vice President Joe Biden, with 27 percent of the vote compared to 25 percent of the vote. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), meanwhile, earned 12 percent of the vote. These were the only three candidates to earn support in the double digits.  


Sanders’ support among younger voters is even higher, leading with 44 percent of the vote among 18-34-year-olds. Biden only received 11 percent of the vote among this age group. That changes, however, among voters 35-54 years old, with Biden leading Sanders, 30 percent to 26 percent. 

These survey results showing a Democratic Socialist with the lead come as DNC Chairman Tom Perez claimed Republican concerns about socialism are nothing but a “trick” to distract voters from the issues “real people” care about. 

"This is one of the oldest tricks in the playbook," Perez told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on Sunday. "You go back 75 years, when Republicans don’t want to discuss issues that matter to real people, they call it socialism. Social Security, when it was being debated -- you had Republicans calling it socialism. The minimum wage, in 1938, you had Republicans calling it socialism. Medicare, Ronald Reagan said, and I quote, 'Medicare will lead to socialized medicine. Medicare will lead to socialism in America.' The Affordable Care Act. ... all of those things were 'socialism.' Why do they do that? Because they don't want to talk about pre-existing conditions."
