A new 2024 poll shows Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg as the leader in New Hampshire. In 2020, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finished first in New Hampshire, and Buttigieg came in second place.
As RedState’s Bonchie observed earlier today, the mainstream media is so focused on whether Trump will announce his White House bid and if it will be before or after the midterm elections — as well as Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) potentially entering the race — that they have not really reported on the 2024 Democratic field.
The New Hampshire poll shows Buttigieg at 17 percent, President Biden at 16 percent, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and California Governor Gavin Newsom at 10 percent, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) at nine percent, Sanders (I-VT) at eight percent, Vice President Harris at six percent, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) at five percent, as the rest of the candidates, including Hillary Clinton, failed to crack five percent.
2024 New Hampshire Democratic Primary:

So, Pete Buttigieg, who could not run a city with less than 105,000 residents in South Bend, Indiana, leads the Democratic field in New Hampshire. But it gets worse. Incompetent Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) is tied for third place in the second state that votes during the primaries.
If Democrats do not nominate a candidate like North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper or Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, they will likely lose every key state in 2024, including Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Senator Klobuchar, along with her flaws as a prosecutor, would have a better chance in the General Election than Buttigieg and Newsom because she will win over moderates and independent voters, depending on who the GOP nominee is going to be.
As I reported yesterday, the Washington Post published a piece ranking the “top-ten” 2024 Democratic Presidential hopefuls. Only one candidate on that list will have a viable chance to win the General Election.
Having said that, the GOP must hone in on their message of being tough-on-crime, and focus on the economy, school choice, and empowering parents, among other important issues.
Gavin Newsom will be forced to defend his record as California Governor — which is not an easy thing to do due to his incompetent leadership. Meanwhile, AOC will tout her climate agenda and the Green New Deal that would bankrupt the United States and, as a report in 2020 said, would “destroy” the middle class.
For the most part, the GOP nominee is the winner of the Democratic New Hampshire poll. Sanders will likely sit out in 2024, passing the torch to AOC, which the GOP should welcome. Whether it’s Newsom, AOC, Warren, or Buttigieg, as long as the GOP nominee can win over independent voters, they will comfortably win in 2024.
The GOP base should be encouraged by this poll.
