Clinton 44, Sanders 32 -NH Morning Consult Poll
Bernie Sanders, the independent Democratic senator from Vermont, is within striking distance of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in a new poll of likely New Hampshire presidential primary voters.
A new survey from the Morning Consult finds 44 percent of New Hampshire voters who say they will vote in the Democratic primary support Clinton with 32 percent supporting Sanders.
Eight percent say they would vote for Vice President Joe Biden, who is not currently a candidate, with two percent supporting former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley and one percent supporting former Virginia governor Jim Webb. Eleven percent say they are undecided.
That's the Morning Consult poll's closest margin for Clinton in the three early primary states. Among likely Iowa caucus goers, 54 percent support Clinton while just 12 percent support Sanders and 20 percent say they don't now. In South Carolina, 56 percent supporting Clinton and 10 percent support Sanders (while Biden does better than Sanders at 15 percent).
