While former Vice President Joe Biden still enjoys an overall lead in the crowded 2020 Democratic primary field, it is shrinking in favor of other candidates on the rise.

That appears to be especially evident in the important primary state of New Hampshire.

A new Saint Anselm College poll finds Biden at just under 21 percent support statewide. Right on his heels, however, are Sen. Kamala Harris at nearly 18 percent and Sen. Elizabeth Warren at nearly 17 percent.

The latter two have shown big gains in recent weeks and, with a 5.2 percent margin of error, are in a statistical tie with the front-runner.
