UNH Poll Finds High Interest In 2020 New Hampshire Primary

Aug 23, 2018

A new poll from UNH finds voters are already very interested in the 2020 presidential race.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren are the candidates New Hampshire Democrats are most interested in right now, according to the Granite State Poll.

Among Republicans, 80 percent say they approve of President Trump's performance, but only 56 percent of likely GOP primary voters say they plan to vote for him.

Trump’s support among those intending on voting in 2020 Republican primary lags the support President Obama enjoyed among likely Democratic primary voters at the same point in his first term.

Overall, 60 percent of those polled said they are "extremely interested" in the 2020 primary. That interest is highest among Democrats but is climbing across the political spectrum. In April, 33 percent of self-identified independents said they were extremely interested.

In this poll, taken between August 2 and August 19, that number climbed to 56 percent.
