Although she insists that she is not running for president in 2020, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the leading candidate in a Suffolk University poll of New Hampshire Democrats eyeballing the next race for the White House.
 
According to a Boston Globe report, Warren has 26 percent support of New Hampshire Democrats responding to the poll, ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden at 20 percent and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 13 percent—Sanders won the 2016 New Hampshire primary in an upset victory. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey trailed in fourth place with 8 percent, while 18 percent of respondents said they were undecided.
 
Warren, who is seeking re-election for her Senate seat, told CNN’s “State of the Union” in March that she had no plans to pursue the presidency.
 
"I am not running for president in 2020," she said. "I am in this fight to retain my Senate seat in 2018. That's where I'm focused. That's where I'm going to stay focused. I'm not running for president."
 
On the Republican side, 41 percent of those polled voiced their support President Trump and 52 percent disapprove. However, Trump easily outpaced other would-be challengers, including Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona.
