Elizabeth Warren in recent months has cut into Joe Biden’s lead in New Hampshire, home to the nation’s first primary. The state’s Democratic convention this weekend provides a ripe opportunity to gain more ground.
The Massachusetts senator will join all the major Democratic candidates Friday and Saturday in speaking to party activists at the Manchester event, including Biden, the former vice president and 36-year Delaware senator.
Warren currently has 14.7% in the RealClearPolitics average of New Hampshire polls, good for third place behind Biden, the leader at 21%, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, trailing narrowly with 19.3%.
That’s a big change from early May, shortly after Biden entered the race. The three-time presidential candidate at the time claimed 36%, to 18% for Sanders and Warren’s 8%.
