CNN Poll: Hillary Clinton Trails Bernie Sanders In N.H. By 16 Points

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton trailed behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by 16 points among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, in a CNN/WMUR poll released Thursday.

Sanders had 46 percent of support from likely primary voters, Clinton had 30 percent and Vice President Joe Biden had 14 percent.

Sanders led Clinton by double digits in both New Hampshire and Iowa in polls released last week.

The poll was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center from Sept. 17 through Sept. 23. Interviews were conducted among 820 residents of New Hampshire who said they planned to vote in the Democratic presidential primary.

The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
