BOSTON (CBS) — This wild, fluid New Hampshire primary just got a little wilder.

All week long, the story has been the rise of Pete Buttigieg to co-frontrunner status with Bernie Sanders. The latest exclusive WBZ/Boston Globe/Suffolk University tracking poll shows they’re still co-leaders within the poll’s 4.4% margin of error, with Sanders holding steady at 24% and Buttigieg slipping a bit to 22%.

Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden remain static in third and fourth places with 13% and 10% respectively.

But now there’s another candidate on a bit of a roll.

Amy Klobuchar is right behind Biden now at 9%, up three points over Friday night. She appears to be the only candidate to get a boost from Friday’s debate, with two-thirds of the poll taken during and after that event.

And it seems the debate injected doubt into the minds of some voters. The undecideds rose from 7% Friday night to 12% Saturday night.

Remember, the wild card in any New Hampshire primary is independents, the largest group of voters in the state.

Sanders still leads with independents, but his 26% is off four points from where he was when the week began. Buttigieg is right behind with 24%, a net gain of 13 points since Monday.

But it’s Klobuchar who has moved into a virtual third-place tie with Warren. Her 10% support from independents represents a six point bounce since Monday.

“Sanders looks well-positioned if he can bring out his youth vote. Buttigieg looks comfortable in second place at least,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center. “But to me the real excitement is who’s gonna get that third ticket among Warren, Biden and now a streaking Klobuchar.”

More than four in 10 voters say they still might change their minds before Tuesday, so be sure to check back with WBZ-TV Sunday night at 11 for our final exclusive WBZ/Globe/Suffolk tracking poll.

The WBZ-TV/Boston Globe/Suffolk University tracking poll is a two-day rolling sample of 500 likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters.

    Joe Biden is such a bad candidate I actually feel sorry for him

    1. DAVID ZEEMAN says:

      don’t feel biden bad…
      he IS A has been,
      AND on the WRONG SIDE OF EVERY ISSUE FOR HIS LIFE UNACHIEVEMENT AWARD…

      WRONG ON ISRAEL,
      WRONG ON THE ECONOMY,
      AFFAIRS OF STATE

      A LIFELONG PARASITE,
      NEVER HELD A JOB,
      GOT SUPER RICH AND FOR WHAT…

      ALL PERSNAL GAIN…HE STINKS FROM CORRUPTION.

    2. Biden made such an ass out of himself begging for an ovation for Vindman, that Russian plant in the U.S. Army that I actually felt sorry for himself. He could barely talk through his mumbles. Also, just because we had Obama does not mean we could stand another one in Butt Agig. A kweeyuh, gag!

      1. vstarrider46 says:

        So the Democrat choices are: a gay guy with a last name that starts with Butt, a fake Cherokee Indian, Some old codger who like to sniff girls hand and can’t remember what day is it and an 78 yr old yelling communist. that a choice?

    3. Keith Schoose says:

      It is difficult to feel sorry for someone who calls a voter, a “lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

    4. Proudly Unaffiliated says:

      Burisma Biden is a three-time loser. Totally bageled.

  2. Neil says:

    The percentages from the polls total 69%.
    They did not show:
    31% None Of the above

    1. If I were a democRAT, bite my tongue! I would change my name to Noneofthe Above so I would be ahead in the polls.

  3. Grim Reaper says:

    Wow even the phoney indian has passed him. Hey I know, ask Hunter for some Blow. It’ll make you happy.

  4. John Carter says:

    Joe Biden was never going to be the Dem candidate: too old, too white, too dumb, too creepy, too corrupt. The notion that Trump would seek the Ukraine’s help to “defeat” him was patently absurd.

    1. vstarrider46 says:

      Absurd is right. I think my Fox Terrier could have beat him in an election.

  5. wolves111 says:

    Keep the queer out of office. It’s an abomination that this degenerate is running for office.

    1. vstarrider46 says:

      Try to visualize the Butt guy and his husband dancing together at the post election balls! What an embarrassment to the nation.

      1. justin Denial says:

        Try to imagine “her” with ‘her’ husband ( gag) dealing with the islamic, umm, reigion of peace.

  6. AC7880 says:

    Democrats are TERRIFIED that voters will interfere in the 2020 elections.

    And the DNC is back to cheating in the primary again. Going to rig it so Bloomberg can get on the debate stage, and trying to figure out how to screw the Bernie supporters again.

    1. Angela Neill says:

      “More than 4 in 10 voters say they will change their mind before Tuesday”, goes the story.

      I bet many will change their mind again one more time before Nov. There were thousands of R-voters who, for now, changed their status to “undeclared” in NH so they can vote for Bernie, in order to screw with the numbers. Kids will be kids their whole life long, LoL.

  7. jnobfan says:

    Buttboy is running ads with Obama in them driving the final nail in quid pro Joes coffin

  8. Ed Martin says:

    The “Dems” realy have no body, Ok lets say this guy becomes Pres., will his Gay Lover be First Man, First Woman or First Lover.

    JUST ASKING

  9. tpennell4@comcast.net says:

    Don’t cry for Crooked Joe. He can always get a boat load of Cash from his Crack Addled Kid.

  10. James Busse says:

    Payola Joe. Gotta love it.

  11. dispatchdude says:

    Fun to watch the libs devour each other.

  12. Frank Booth says:

    Plenty of trolls here

  13. John Blow says:

    I smell fear of Biden here. Lol

  14. This confirms the success and power of PBS’s influence on voters. PBS has directed its entire programming for years to queers, commies and criminals. Until the have the begging fund raisers whereupon they play old time musical favorites and beg honkies to contribute to continue their anti American programing.

  15. Al Court says:

    Let it go Joe.

  16. Vincent Ardizzone says:

    After Biden implodes, watch of HILLARY to jump into the race to pick up the open slot. Do not doubt me on this. She is waiting for the right moment.

    1. vstarrider46 says:

      I’ve heard a rumor that during the Democrat Convention they will try to draft Mitt Romney to run. I’m sure he would jump on it.

  17. Fed Up! says:

    The Communist and the Butt packer, why would anyone of the two want to humiliate them self’s to the trashing President Trump is going to give them on Election Day.

  18. noahvaile says:

    For someone whose intellect is in 7,000,000th place he’s doing quite well.

  19. Michael Goodliffe says:

    The homophobic comments here about Pete Butigieg are disturbing. So is the wave of nasty slandering that seems to immediately follow in any article about this coming election. How about commenting on a disagreement with policy, or even a heartfelt response that shows why your candidate is better than another?

    America seems to have normalized vicious slander in its political campaigns. It’s not normal for a civilized, western society. And the homophobic slurs are just disgusting.

    1. Keith Schoose says:

      You want policy? Try this: Illegal immigration is illegal. Illegal immigrants should be deported, not given free healthcare for life.

      1. Gar says:

        You forgot education, food, and food stamps.

  20. Dana Blasi says:

    Joe will beat President Trump “like a drum” if he can just get past Pete, Bernie ,Liz and and Amy !

  21. dt60093 says:

    I watched the impeachment proceedings and saw how corrupt Joe Biden and his family are. He actually did a Quid Pro Quo for $1 billion to prevent his son’s investigation. He did what Trump was accused of doing.

  22. Steve M says:

    Biden is still ahead in national polls remains America’s preferred and best candidate to be President of the US. Biden is unstoppable. American’s who support Biden have carefully considered all issues and other candidates.

  23. das says:

    The impeachment of Trump took out Biden not Trump… That is Hilarious! It illustrates how out of touch Democrats are today. Then they gave us the Iowa fiasco, these clowns can’t even cheat without screwing up. It still amazes me that there are people who still believe these lunatics are competent.

    1. Brian Lara says:

      AOC and the left pushed Pelosi to impeach impeach impeach.

      VERY SMART OF THEM. They support Bernie. Biggest obstacle is Joe. So AOC & Co wins every way.

      Trump is impeached. (That is what they campained on … impeach even if it was all bs)
      A cloud is hung over Biden Was there cronyism in Ukraine … looks fishy even if not illegal. Biden’s numbers drop. Bernie looking great.

      They didn’t expect Trump / GOP to also solidify, but overall AOC & Co did a great job and Pelosi looks foolish.

  24. AnAmericanOutraged says:

    So the front runners are full-on do-nothing Commie POS with one foot in the grave and a guy who finds a man’s hairy anus sexually attractive. The Democrat candidate line up looks like a circus sideshow, a very bad and perverted one.

  25. Richard Pope says:

    Joe Biden needs to drop-out of the race. He’s not a viable candidate. He’s just kidding himself.

  26. Shannon Martin says:

    The revelations in Schweizer’s investigative work are backed by 1,126 endnotes, totaling 83 pages of source material. Some of those revelations include:

    Profiles in Corruption edged out A Very Stable Genius on the New York Times bestseller list, which was penned by two Washington Post reporters.

    Establishment media TV outlets have largely ignored the findings exposed in Profiles in Corruption and have failed to question the presidential candidates covered in the book on their past conduct.

  27. Dennis P Kelly says:

    After Hillary got skunked in NH four years ago, they set the traps for Bernie and took him down. Not that it did her any good – the most unlikeable woman in America. Bloomberg could win this, but again, to no avail – all the money on Earth cannot make you likeable, especially with policies most Americans would never support. Lining up for a huge reelection win for Trump in November.

  28. Robert Hunter says:

    the Democrats have, without really realizing it I believe, made a campaign against President Trump almost impossible. While no candidate has been selected and they are all still concentrating on the primaries, the Republican National Committee and the President Trump campaign people have been in full campaign mode for 31/2 years as they fought the Democrat attempt to overturn a Presidential election. Any nominee from the Democrats will be so far behind in preparing for a national campaign they will never catch up. The result will be another campaign concentrated on attacking the character of Donald Trump and void of any significant policy statements. It did not work for Hillary Clinton and it will not work for the next Democrat nominee. The current crop Democrat contenders cannot support their far,far, left policies against the economic turn around from the Trump administration. Character attacks in the form of ” anonymous sources” and “former administration officials” will again be the norm. Sad.

  29. Bill says:

    I wonder if romney’s religious convictions will allow jo gaffe-a-day biteme to be investigated for criminal activity after he drops out of the race in a couple of weeks? These two clowns deserve each other.

    I’m hearing this butt-a-guy is the guy to beat for the democRAT-Communist party nomination. Do these people really think they can beat President Trump? What a mess of a political party, or as the lame-ass-press call them, a party in ciaos. It couldn’t happen to a better group of communists.

  30. NoName4Now says:

    Dump Joe, & go for underpants-boy. He is your ONLY shot. The other two are Pocahontas and the Marxist.

  31. Jon L says:

    Klobuchar who has all the appeal of Carly Fiorina is “surging” according to the lamestream press.

  32. TransitDave says:

    Too bad Daddy Bloombucks wasn’t on the ballot, Sleepy Joe would’ve been in 6th place……No matter, they’re all gonna SUFFER THE TRIUMPH OF TRUMP!

  33. Mark Dimperio says:

    Tough one Joe, you almost pulled that one out.

  34. Proudly Unaffiliated says:

    You get a pinched commie with Bernie,
    You get a fudge packer with Buttiegig,
    You get a phony scold with Warren,
    You get corruption and gaffs with Biden,
    You get hot flashing anger with Klobuchar.
    You get vote-buying and gun bans with Bloomberg.
    SO SHE’S BACK!! (Hillary)

  35. berniw should run as an independent... says:

    and lose as one.

  36. Anonymous Smith says:

    Do Joe Biden’s teeth keep chattering when he takes them out at night?

  37. joeseph says:

    Trump takes out another one.
    MAGA !

  38. Prelusive007 says:

    The only way Biden could weasel his way into the White House was as Obama’s token white boy. The low-life Obama got to know his stupidity so well, he wouldn’t even support him in his quest to run for president.

    The ‘left’ is all out of answers. All they can run on his their hate for President Trump. And that’s not going to get them any further than Biden got in Iowa.

    Democrats = LOSING . . . . . Republicans = WINNING!!!!!

  39. Bill says:

    They’re all Circus clowns. No offense to circus clowns.

  40. a p garcia says:

    Its ironic that Joe Biden was Obama’s VP, yet Obama won’t endorse or do a commercial for Biden!

  41. Michelle Dena says:

    This is news only because the polls were wrong again (like they were in 2016)

  42. John says:

    The most effective leader with toughness to defeat the only President in the United States history vote to have someone from their own party vote to remove him from office. The people of New Hampshire support new clean energy solutions,but Donald Trump has let the fossil fuel industry write our national environmental rules. Bernie intends to transform our energy system away from pipelines of fossil fuel and into energy efficiency and sustainable energy and in the process , create millions of good paying jobs.
