The former secretary of state is now leading former U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont by four percentage points, with 38 percent of support from primary Democratic voters in the Granite State. Her favorability now is 7 percentage points higher than in September.
More than half—60 percent—of Democratic voters in New Hampshire said they think Clinton is most likely to win the primary nationally, compared with 13 percent who believe Sanders will be victorious. Eighteen percent said they are undecided, or refused to answer. In August, a poll by Franklin Pierce University and the Boston Herald showed that, while most New Hampshire Democrats preferred Sanders, they thought Clinton would be their party’s nominee.
