And if I'm playing Early Morning Bad Narrative Cop, this is an extremely weird Narrative coming from some Sanders surrogates. Buttigieg's comments were extremely boilerplate, basically that Trump and Sanders voters both suffer economic anxiety and are disaffected with the system.

In fact, Sanders supporters sometimes make arguments like these themselves to claim Bernie will appeal to Trump voters. It's an extremely weird thing to get upset about unless they're deliberately looking to pick a fight with Buttigieg.

For context: Buttigieg now at 14% vs. Bernie and Biden at "just" 19% in the latest Iowa poll. That's quite problematic for both frontrunners given their higher name recognition.

Also out today, a new New Hampshire poll with much better numbers for Bernie than what we've been seeing in other early-state polls recently. But it also shows Buttigieg surging into a strong 3rd place.

Warren at 5% in NH seems like the story there.

Yeah, that's bad. But her numbers have been surprisingly bad in NH for a while now and it's a small sample (n=241). I think the Buttigieg surge is the news since that's been consistent across multiple polls.
