The new poll finds Sen. Sanders with 52% support among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, while former Secretary of State Clinton, long considered the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic nomination, receives 30%. Recent polls have shown Sanders’ lead growing in the Granite State, but this would be the first to show the Vermont Senator over 50%.
Possibly more worrying for the Clinton campaign is her performance in Iowa, where Sanders now leads by 10 points, with 43% to Clinton’s 33%.
I know that it is still early, but this is very bad news for Clinton. Sanders should win N.H. by a tiny margin and finish in a respectable second in Iowa if the Clinton narrative is true. These recent polls make it seem that the Secretary is a much weaker candidate than anyone expected.
