A new poll among Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in New Hampshire shows Sen. Bernie Sanders in the lead by nine points.

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg trails Sanders with 26 percent support. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the most popular with 11 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in the Granite State, while businessman Andrew Yang, popular for his Universal Basic Income proposal, and former Vice President Joe Biden each hold nine percent support. 

The leading two candidates among Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in New Hampshire are the same presidential hopefuls who likely finished first and second in the Iowa caucuses, although results have not yet been finalized, even a week after the electoral process.
