New exit polling from the Democratic primary election in New Hampshire shows a majority of voters in the state support policy initiatives touted by members of the progressive wing of the party, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

According to CBS News, almost 60% of voters polled say they support a government health care plan for all that would replace private insurance. On the issue of making public college tuition-free, roughly two-thirds were in support.

Good news for Sanders

Sanders, known for leading the push for a "Medicare for All" plan, also called single-payer health care, came into Tuesday night's contest with a sizable lead, according to recent polling.

The self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" senator has also been among the leading voices in favor of making college free for all. On his campaign website, Sanders proposes "guarantee[ing] tuition and debt-free public colleges, universities, HBCUs, Minority Serving Institutions and trade-schools to all" and "cancel[ing] all student loan debt for the some 45 million Americans" who currently owe money.

At the time of this article's publication, Sanders in fact did hold a lead, garnering over 25% of the vote as the first results were being reported.

Also of note, a whopping 90% of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters said they are unhappy with the Trump administration, including 81% who characterized themselves as "angry."
