Former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by 10 percentage points in a new poll of likely New Hampshire voters, with Biden showing a much larger edge among likely women voters and independents.
Biden leads 46-56 among men, but 56-37 among women, according to the Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll, which was released Wednesday morning and involved live phone interviews with 500 likely voters conducted between Oct. 8 and Oct. 12.
Biden also led 48-35 among undeclared or independent voters. The pollsters reported that Trump leads 78-11 among those who said jobs and the economy are the most important issue, and Biden leads 75-18 among those who said COVID-19 is most important and 63-30 among those who say bringing the country together is most important.
The results come with less than three weeks until election day. In 2016, Suffolk's last New Hampshire poll showed Trump and Hillary Clinton tied at 42 percent, with Clinton eventually edging Trump in that state 46.8 percent to 46.5 percent.
