Two days before the democrat primary, New Hampshire voters see Sanders as the right candidate to go against Trump.

U.S. state of New Hampshire polls shows that electors who will vote Tuesday in the Democratic primary believe Senator Bernie Sanders has the best chance of beating President Donald Trump in the general election.

Of the 715 adults surveyed, 29 percent of the state's voters said they thought Sanders could win in November, compared to 25 percent for former Vice President Joe Biden and 14 percent for former Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

A Political poll showed that Sanders was favored by 28 percent over the 21 percent of those who supported Buttigieg. While, Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren had 11 and nine percent of the vote, respectively.

Another poll released Sunday by the Boston Globe, WBZ-TV and Suffolk University showed Sanders leading Buttigieg in New Hampshire by two percentage points but placing both candidates in a statistical tie with the poll's margin of error.

Sanders' supporters have reiterated their support on Medicare for All and criticize Buttigieg for his alignment with Wall Street interests.

Last week, Sanders claimed victory in the caucus of the Democratic Party in Iowa, almost completely wiping out Buttigieg's narrow lead in state delegate equivalents while extending his popular vote lead to more than 2,500 votes.

At a campaign event at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, Friday, Sanders refrained from commenting on Buttigieg personally but questioned his ability to change the country's political and economic systems, considering his financial ties to powerful corporate sectors.

"I like Pete Buttigieg, he's a good guy, but we're at a point where billionaires control not only our economy but also our political process," Sanders said.
