POLL: Boston Globe/UNH New Hampshire Primary


A new Boston Globe/University of New Hampshire statewide survey (story; results) of likely primary voters in New Hampshire (conducted 11/2 through 11/7) finds:

  • Among 400 likely Democratic primary voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (35% to 21%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 15%, Gov. Bill Richardson at 10%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • Among 404 likely Republican primary voters, former Gov. Mitt Romney leads former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (32% to 20%) in a statewide primary; former Sen. John McCain trails at 17%, Rep. Ron Paul at 7%, former Gov. Mike Huckabee at 5%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • 24% of Democrats have "definitely decided" who to vote for, 28% are leaning and 48% have no idea. 16% of Republicans have definitely decided, 24% are leaning, and 60% have no idea.

Mike S.:

Look at Richardson and Paul making some moves in NH. If 48% of Democrats and 60% of Republicans have are "still trying to decide" (per the language used in the survey script), New Hampshire is surprisingly still WIDE OPEN for both primaries.

Just wait until Ron Paul's money raising starts to become a factor...he's ramping up the radio/tv spots in NH with all that dough in the bank...unfortunately for Richardson he doesn't have that kind of dollar power.

And of the 16% Republicans who "definitely decided", 7% could be Paul's supporters! It will be very interesting to see how it plays out..

I notice the composite graphic doesn't show much response to the latest results. Might we see a variation with the sensitivity cranked up?
