The New Hampshire primary is hours away and the latest UMass 7 News poll has Donald Trump sitting on top with 34%. The fight for second has gotten tighter with Marco Rubio sharing second place with Ted Cruz at 13%, and John Kasich sharing third place with Jeb Bush with 10%. With those four candidates seeing a surge in their support all jockeying for the apparent second place spot and a CNN poll saying thirty percent of likely Republican voters are undecided the Granite state could yield some surprises. Even Trump’s lead may not be concrete as we saw in Iowa.
For the Democrats Bernie Sanders continues to lead Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 16%. Clinton’s campaign appears to be pushing into overdrive as she busses support in to ramp up her coverage of the state. The Clinton’s are no strangers to victories in New Hampshire yet hardly any polls reflect a lead on Hillary’s part. Sanders, in light of his double digit leads, still thinks it will be a close race.
