Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has surpassed longtime frontrunner and former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton for the first time in the polls in New Hampshire.

According to a recent poll conducted by Franklin Pierce University and the Boston Herald, Sanders is polling at 44 percent, and Clinton is trailing at 37 percent among Democratic primary voters.

Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to announce whether he is running for President in the 2016 election, received nine percent in the poll. Other Democratic contenders who have jumped into the race including former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Gov. Jim Webb, received less than one percent in the poll.

The poll, which was held from Aug. 7-10, surveyed 442 New Hampshire Democrats over the phone and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

Although the poll results indicated that only 11 percent of voters thought Sanders would win the Democratic nomination for the 2016 election, it did find that more than half of those surveyed viewed Sanders’ campaign as “very favorable” and his polling numbers have risen drastically in the state where he was polling at eight percent compared to Clinton’s 44 percent in March.

The results of the poll noted that while 80 percent of NH Democrats view Clinton favorably, only 38 percent said they have a “very favorable” impression of her, only 35 percent said they are “excited” about her campaign, and 51 percent said that while they could support her, they aren’t enthusiastic about her campaign.

Since announcing his presidential bid on April 30, Sanders, who is a self-described socialist, has drawn massive crowds ranging in the thousands at rallies in states such as Wisconsin, Maine, and in Washington where he was recently interrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters.
