Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has a 20-point lead over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire in the wake of Clinton’s narrow victory in the Iowa caucuses, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Thursday.

The poll showed support for Sanders at 58 percent of respondents, with 38 percent supporting Clinton. This result indicates very little change since last week’s iteration of the same poll, which showed Sanders beating Clinton by 57 percent to 38 percent. It is also consistent with most New Hampshire polling both since Iowa and in the preceding weeks, which showed Sanders opening a very wide lead in the state neighboring his own.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was carried out from Feb. 2-3. Pollsters surveyed 567 likely Democratic primary voters using live telephone interviews, with a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
