A CNN/WMUR poll released on Thursday showed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with a commanding lead in the Democratic primary in New Hampshire, with a 31- point lead over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The poll showed support for Sanders at 61 percent, compared to 30 percent for Clinton. This represents a slight widening of the margin since the previous CNN/WMUR poll, conducted in late January, which showed Sanders leading Clinton 57 percent to 34 percent. It is also consistent with the majority of New Hampshire polling, which has shown Sanders beating out Clinton, frequently by similarly overwhelming margins.
The CNN/WMUR poll was carried out from Feb. 2-4, with pollsters conducting live telephone interviews with 228 likely primary voters. The margin of error was 6.5 percentage points.
