Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump held a small edge over Dr. Ben Carson in a poll of likely GOP voters in New Hampshire released Wednesday, but some of their Republican rivals saw significant gains.
The poll, from Boston radio station WBUR, showed that Trump had 18 percent support, and Carson had 16 percent, both of which were a slight decrease from WBUR’s poll in September.
Trump dropped by 4 percentage points and Carson by 2 percentage points. The numbers also showed a shuffle among other candidates.
Sen. Marco Rubio received 11 percent support, an increase of 9 points. Ohio Gov. John Kasich had 10 percent support, an increase of 1 point, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had 8 percent, an increase of 6 points.
The poll surveyed 400 likely GOP primary voters by phone from Oct. 29 to Nov. 1 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.
The MassINC Polling Group conducted the survey for the Boston radio station.
