Buttigieg, Biden, Sanders and Warren are leading in N.H.
We don't hear much about NH, but it has the first primary (coming up in one month) --one week after the Iowa caucuses.
Here is how things stand today:
"With just over one month to go until the New Hampshire primary, a new poll indicates it's a tight race among the top-four Democratic candidates.
According to a Monmouth University New Hampshire poll released Thursday, Pete Buttigieg is leading among registered Democrats and unaffiliated voters likely to participate in the contest with 20% support, but Joe Biden is only one point behind at 19%, Bernie Sanders is at 18% and Elizabeth Warren is at 15% making it essentially a four-way race.
Compared to Monmouth University's New Hampshire poll from September, Buttigieg has gained 10 points while Sanders' support increased 6 points. Warren, meanwhile, dropped 12 points while Biden also saw a decline in support by six points.
The new poll finds Amy Klobuchar's support on the rise with 6%. Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer were each polling at 4%, Andrew Yang 3%, Michael Bennet at 2% and Cory Booker at 1%.
This comes after CBS News' latest Battleground Tracker found Sanders at 27%, Biden at 25%, Warren at 18% and Buttigieg at 13% as the first choice for nominee in New Hampshire. That polling similarly also hand Klobuchar at 7%.
If I had to vote at this particular point in time, I'm not sure which one I would back--however, of the top 4 contenders, I personally would place Sanders 4th in my list of preferred candidates.
I really like Buttigieg,--like that youthful energy and his articulate abilities, but worry a bit about whether he is "seasoned" enough.
Like the "seasoned" quality of Biden, that he is more moderate, and he is more knowledgeable about foreign affairs--and that he was Obama's choice--, but I also remember several political blunders he committed in the past and that like Sanders, he really is getting rather old.
Love the fact that Warren is a knowledgeable woman candidate and is as high energy as Buttigieg--and a bit younger than Sanders and Biden.
But I could be happy with any of the 4, if it comes down to that.
As far as the age thing goes, all 3 of the "oldsters" have far more energy than I do, and friends consider me a rather high energy person, so they are actually doing quite well.
