CNN released its latest polling for the 2020 New Hampshire primary, and found that a majority of Granite Staters do no want President Donald J. Trump to be impeached and removed from office. 

When asked, "Based on what you know at this point, do you think Donald Trump should or should not be impeached and removed from office?" 42 percent of respondents said that he "Should Be Impeached and Removed," 51 percent said that he "Should Not Be Impeached and Removed," and seven percent of those polled answered "Don't Know /Not Sure."

The poll, conducted by CNN and the University of New Hampshire, interviewed 1,266 randomly selected New Hampshire adults between October 21 and October 27,2019.  The breakdown of respondents was 495 Democrats, 232 independents, and 510 Republicans. 

The poll also found that former Vice President Joe Biden should be getting nervous for early success once voting in the Democratic primary gets underway. The one-time leader of the campaign field has fallen to third place in the first primary in the nation, while Democratic Socialist candidate Bernie Sanders is officially in first based on CNN's poll.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts ranked second, Mayor Pete Buttigieg placed fourth, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang placed fifth.
