A new poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire shows Transportation Secretary Pete Buttitgieg growing his lead in New Hampshire amongst the 2024 Democratic field. Buttigieg increased his lead from July 2022, when the first poll was conducted, from 17 percent to 23 percent. Most notably, he expanded his lead over President Joe Biden – who sits at 18 percent support – to five points.
The poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire also showed major trouble for President Biden, when asked if Primary voters wanted the President to run again. According to responses, 27 percent believe Biden should definitely or “probably” run again in 2024, while a whopping 66 percent believe Biden “probably” or “definitely” should not run.
Joe Biden has a +26 percent favorability in New Hampshire, which is well below the most popular Democratic politician, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who sits at +58 percent. Senator Elizabeth Warren comes in second at 56 percent, with Senator Raphael Warnock holding third place in the state with +53 percent.

Amongst second-choice picks, Kamala Harris leads with 17 percent, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in second with 14 percent, Elizabeth Warren sits third at 13 percent, and Pete Buttigieg holds fourth place with 12 percent.
The July 2022 poll, which looked better for the president, took place long before a flurry of scandals hit the Biden administration, including the ongoing classified document fiasco.
The updated New Hampshire primary poll also comes as Biden’s team is vying to change the calendar of the primary season to make South Carolina first in the process.
Biden’s primary victory in South Carolina in 2020 arguably saved his campaign from defeat.
If Biden and the Democrats are able to shift the calendar, South Carolina would be first, Nevada would be second, and New Hampshire third, followed by Georgia, and then Michigan.
The Democrat Party recently stripped Iowa of its “first in the nation primary” with a vote from the Rules and Bylaws Committee of the DNC, challenging more than half a century of precedent.

Despite the party stripping Iowa of its famous status, laws are in place to help ensure that it goes first in the nomination process.
“While the party doesn’t have the ability to dictate to a state what the law is, the party doesn’t have the ability to mandate a change to state law,” DNC general counsel Graham Wilson argued.
“The party has the ability to dictate the process by which we select our nominee.”

I don’t believe this. Pete’s performance as Transportation Secretary has been abysmal and getting worse.
None of the candidates would serve America, or it’s Americans wry well in any capacity much less as the President.
