The amount by which Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire continues to widen. The latest poll, courtesy of CNN and WMUR, shows Sanders with a twenty-seven point lead. That’s 27 in case you misread.

Report from CNN:

Bernie Sanders’ lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire is on the rise, with the Vermont senator leading the former secretary of state by 27 points, 60% to 33%, a new CNN/WMUR poll has found.

The new poll, mostly conducted before Sunday night’s debate, found Sanders’ support has grown by 10 points since a late-November/early December CNN/WMUR poll, which found Sanders holding 50% to Clinton’s 40%.

New Hampshire Democrats’ views on the race are solidifying as well, with 52% saying they have definitely decided who they will support, up from 36% who felt that way in early December. Among those voters, Sanders holds an even broader 64% to 35% lead.

But the Vermont senator’s support rests heavily on groups whose participation in New Hampshire primaries is less reliable — notably younger voters and those who aren’t registered Democrats.

This poll was conducted before the last debate on Sunday, but that might not matter in this case. I’d imagine that 27% is probably a little high, though it does highlight how well Sanders might be doing in the state. The prior Democratic poll I reported on from New Hampshire had Sanders with a 14 point lead. At that time, I thought 14% might be a little high, but maybe that’s not unreasonable, perhaps even a little low. Either way, Hillary Clinton is in serious trouble in New Hampshire, a state which she won in 2008 against Barack Obama, but went on to lose the nomination.


  1. Nate:
    What an idiotic heading “New Hampshire is Bernie’s to Lose” — when it should read *Sanders to crush Hillary in NH*

    Nate, stop drinking from Goethe’s Cool Aid….

    Bernie is not just leading 60-33 there, but also has a trustworthiness poll of 91% — to Hillary’s in the single digits (should be in the minus after this)!

    Make this 2 min video VIRAL!

    For Hillary to be still running for president, instead of being arrested, is an American travesty!

    • Yeah, she should be arrested, but not for her “damn emails” – but rather for her acceptance of huge super-pac and bankster donations while hypocritically stating that she is for campaign finance reform. She’s a phony and a liar and I’m glad that Republicans are making such a stink about her. The sad thing though is that you guys think that if Hillary loses, Bernie won’t stand a chance in the General Election. Oh man, how wrong you are!! You’re going to wish you had Republican Hillary!

    • To be fair, “to lose” is a more objective title than what you suggested (even though I believe that is what is going to happen).

    • Has anyone been able to dig up exactly who owns the “yesimright” website? I mean, it’s quite obviously shilling for Dump, but I’m curious if its ownership has ever been determined.
