New Hampshire Poll Shows Sanders Lead Over Clinton Unchanged After Iowa

A Suffolk/Boston Globe poll released on Friday shows Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) beating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 50 percent to 41 percent in New Hampshire.

This survey, conducted entirely after the Iowa caucuses, shows virtually no change since the same poll was conducted in mid-January. It is also consistent with most other polling, nearly all of which has shown Sanders leading in New Hampshire, even if little consensus has emerged as to the size of his lead.

Sander’s lead has tended to tighten in some polls since Clinton won Iowa on Monday. TPM’s PollTracker average shows the gap between the two candidates is at its widest since the summer, with Sanders beating Clinton 55.1 percent to 37.9 percent.

The Suffolk/Boston Globe poll was carried out from Feb. 2-4. Pollsters surveyed 500 likely Democratic voters in New Hampshire by live telephone interview, with a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.
