Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg leapt to the top of the polls in New Hampshire on Thursday, tying with socialist candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) after both politicians pulled off smashing successes in the Iowa caucuses.

The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, received a four-point boost in the polls in the Granite State, topping out at 23 percent, nearly tied with Sanders' 24 percent. Those numbers are close to those of their recent caucus victories in Iowa, although Buttigieg won that state with 26.2 percent of Democratic voters to Sanders' 26.1.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) trailed the two at 13 percent. Former Vice President Joe Biden, long considered the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2020, managed just 11 percent.
