On February 7, seven Democratic presidential candidates gathered in Manchester, New Hampshire for a spirited debate ahead of the state's February 11 primary. ABC News and WMUR-TV in partnership with Apple News hosted the eighth debate of the 2020 Democratic primaries at St. Anslem's College in Manchester, New Hampshire. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Andrew Yang, and businessman Tom Steyer qualified for the February New Hampshire debate. ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, ABC World News Tonight Anchor David Muir, ABC News Correspondent Linsey Davis, WMUR Political Director Adam Sexton, and WMUR anchor Monica Hernandez moderated. The debate came four days after the February 3 Iowa caucuses, which traditionally have set the tone for the rest of the field. But after a series of meltdowns and errors in the reporting of the results that kept snowballing over the course of the week, the Iowa caucuses ended up being one of the most disastrous elections in recent political history. The results of the Iowa Democratic caucuses with 100% of precincts reporting showed Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly leading Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the popular vote and statistically tied in state-delegate equivalents (SDEs), the metric usually used to determine the winner. But the days of chaos and confusion surrounding the Iowa caucuses resulting in no clear winner being declared have thrown the entire race into a state of uncertainty, making this debate a crucial opportunity for candidates to shape the narrative they want ahead of Tuesday's primary. In Real Clear Politics' average of New Hampshire polls, Sanders leads the field with 26% support on average compared to 22% for Buttigieg, 13% each for Biden and Warren, 8% for Klobuchar, 3.3% for Yang, and 3% for Steyer. Here are the five biggest moments from Friday's debate:
