Bernie Sanders expands lead over Hillary Clinton in latest New Hampshire poll
The news continues to go from bad to worse in New Hampshire for Hillary Clinton. Last month a poll showed her behind Bernie Sanders by 10 points in the Granite State and now a poll has come out which shows Bernie Sanders extending his lead slightly.
Here is more:
Bernie Sanders has soared to a 13-point lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire in a Fox News survey out Friday, nearly a month to the day that primary voters will make their decision at the polls on Feb. 9.
Sanders, who in November held a slim 1-point advantage over Clinton in the same poll (45 percent to 44 percent), this time took 50 percent of the vote to 37 percent for Clinton.
And another poll shows him with a 14 point lead:
the latest CBS News/YouGov survey polling primary voters showed Sanders with a 14-point advantage over Clinton (56 percent to 42 percent) in mid-December.
We now have three polls which show Bernie Sanders with a double-digit lead over the former Secretary of State and this could spell trouble for her, especially after a recent survey found that 20% of Democratic voters would vote for Donald Trump if Hillary Clinton is the nominee.
If Bernie Sanders pulls off the win in New Hampshire and Democratic voters read the news about defectors heading into the Trump camp the dominoes could begin to topple.
