POLL: Suffolk University New Hampshire Primary


A new statewide survey from Suffolk University/7NEWS in New Hampshire (conducted 12/27 through 12/31) finds:

  • Among 300 likely Democratic primary voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (36% to 22%) in a statewide primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 14%, Gov. Bill Richardson at 7%.
  • Among 300 likely Republican primary voters, Sen. John McCain runs at 31%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 25% in a statewide primary; former Mayor Rudy Giuliani trails at 14%, former Gov. Mike Huckabee at 9%, Rep. Ron Paul at 6%.
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each. The margin of sampling error is 5.7% for both subgroups.

Correction: The original version of this post incorrectly identified the sample sizes for this survey. From today forward, the 7NEWS/Suffolk University poll will conduct 250 interviews a day among Democratic and Republican likely voters and will report a "two-day rolling average of 500 Democrats and 500 Republicans" each day.

Chris S.:

I know that all holiday season polls are somewhat questionable, but wouldn't polling on the night of New Year's Eve be especially egregious....given that so many people will be going out for the evening?

Paul:

Clinton poll number appears (I assume incorrectly) as both 34 and 36 in the Channel 7 Suffolk University release. The actual results are not available yet (were supposed to be released at 6pm tonight).
