|Sen. Bernie Sanders|
A Gravis poll of New Hampshire, puts the Vermont Senator in first place. Sanders comes in at 21% in that poll, while former Vice President Joe Biden is six points behind at 15%. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is the only other candidate in double figures at 12%.
That is the first New Hampshire poll in which Sanders has led in since April. Biden and Sanders are the only Democratic candidates who have led New Hampshire polls this year.
Then you have the Politico/Morning Consult poll. While Biden is at 33% in that poll, Sanders is a solid second place at 20%, well ahead of Warren at 12%. Again, no other candidates are in double figures.
Media types for months have been touting the "surging" Warren candidacy, a claim that is usually accompanied by a contention that Sanders' prospects are floundering. In the real world, the polls don't show much of that going on at all. They show only a modest few point gain for Warren during the past several months and Sanders losing little of his supporters to Warren or anyone else.
What I find most interesting is that, despite overwhelming positive media coverage, Warren doesn't appear to be gaining much. Meanwhile, Sanders' supporters continue to feel the Bern.
