Boston Herald Poll Shows Bernie Beating Clinton In New Hampshire
August 20, 2015

Another outlier poll from the same group that produced the last one. Again, I do expect Bernie Sanders to win in the New England early-primary states, but it's odd that this Republican-linked group is the only one with these numbers. Via the Washington Post.

A new poll shows Bernie Sanders with an apparent lead over Hillary Rodham Clinton among likely Democratic voters in New Hampshire, adding to his momentum in the nation’s first presidential primary state.

Sanders, the independent senator from neighboring Vermont, tops Clinton, the former secretary of state, 44 percent to 37 percent, in the new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll.

The survey, taken Aug. 7-10, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percent, meaning Sanders’s lead is not considered statistically significant by pollsters.

Clinton has maintained a modest edge in other recent polls from the Granite State, including a WMUR Granite State poll last last month that had her up by 6 percentage points among likely Democratic primary voters.

Still, the latest survey reflects a surge by Sanders this summer that has turned the Democratic race into more of a contest than almost anyone expected.
