MA POLS ALMOST ALWAYS WIN NH....:

New Party, Who Dis? (ANDREW EGGER  JANUARY 28, 2019, The Bulwark)

According to the NH Journal poll, which surveyed 593 registered voters earlier this month, 55 percent of New Hampshire Democrats believe that Elizabeth Warren best represents the Democratic party. Ocasio-Cortez came in second with 28 percent. Just 17 percent said that Clinton was the best representation of the current party.

"The fact that so many Democrats in New Hampshire see Sen. Warren as an accurate reflection of their party isn't that surprising," NH Journal publisher Shawn McCoy said in a press release. "But the fact that Hillary Clinton, an icon of the party for 30 years, trails a progressive activist newcomer like Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is astonishing."

Republicans shouldn't spend too much time gloating over these numbers, however. Because even while New Hampshire Democrats are inching away from Clinton, the poll shows that New Hampshire voters overall are running away from Trump. In 2016 Trump came within half a percentage point of winning the state. Now, he trails both Warren and Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders by 13 points (54 percent to 41 percent) in head-to-head polling. (Trump also trails Beto O'Rourke 48 percent to 41 percent.)

The poll contains one word of comfort for the president: A sizeable majority of state Republicans (59 percent) said they'd support Trump if he were challenged by Utah senator Mitt Romney.

...but it's still revealing that Donald can't even get to 60% in a primary.  [People forget, Gene McCarthy only got 42% in 1968.] He's not going to be on the ticket.
