The polling news out of New Hampshire is not encouraging for President Joe Biden, who had a weak performance in the Granite State primary in 2020 before going on to win the party nomination and presidency.

Only 20% of New Hampshire residents want Biden to run for re-election in 2024, down from 29% in June, and just 31% of Democrats polled by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center want Biden to run again, down from 54% in June and 74% in July 2021.

The Granite State Poll results, released on Tuesday, also showed 78% of respondents are concerned about Biden's age, 79. Pollsters described the president's net favorability as at an "all-time low."

Politicians often overlook young adults, but 18- to 25-year-olds are flexing political muscle in ways they can no longer ignore.

The online survey conducted between July 21 and July 25 took the pulse of 1,043 Granite State Panel members, including 430 likely Democratic primary voters, and includes a margin of error or plus or minus 3%.

Poll takers also weighed in on a list of "Democrats who are thought by national political observers to be considering running for president in 2024." The results showed Biden at 17% and his Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, at 16%. They were followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and California Gov. Gavin Newsom at 10%, Sen. Amy Klobuchar with 9%, Sen. Bernie Sanders at 8%, and Vice President Kamala Harris with 8%.
