Cory Booker has favorables of 54%-12% among New Hampshire Democrats but remains stuck at 2%, according to a Monmouth University Poll released today.

Joe Biden leads in New Hampshire with 36% of the vote, followed by Bernie Sanders (18%), Pete Buttigieg (9%), Elizabeth Warren (8%) and Kamala Harris (6%).

Booker is in sixth place in New Hampshire, ahead of eighteen other candidates polled.

“As other polls have shown, Biden officially enters the race as a clear front-runner. He is the preferred candidate of voters who want someone to take up Obama’s mantle but it does not seem that this is a decisive factor right now,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

Five percent of New Hampshire Democrats listed Booker as their second choice.

Biden has favorables of 80%-15% among Democrats in the Granite State, while Sanders (73%-19%), Warren (63%-24%), and Harris (60%-10%) are more well-known than Booker.  Buttigieg is at 54%-7%.

Almost seven out of ten New Hampshire Democrats (68%) say that they would prefer to have a candidate who can beat Donald Trump than someone who they agree with on most issues.

In New Hampshire, just 38% of Democrats think a candidate who supports the impeachment of Trump is a big issue, while 54% say it is not.
